  • 3 1/2 lb pork loin

 

DIRECTIONS
  1. In a small mixing bowl combine all the ingredients except the olive oil. Slowly whisk in the olive oil. Place the pork loin in a heavy resealable plastic bag, and pour the marinade over top. Place the bag in a flat dish. Marinate for 6 – 24 hours turning occasionally.
  2. Place drip pan beneath grids, fill it half full with water or a combination of water, wine and apple cider. Preheat barbecue on HIGH. Reduce heat to LOW, brush grids with olive oil, and place roast on the grids. Cook for 1 1/2 hours, turning occasionally and basting with the marinade.

Frigidaire Recipe: Mini Delectable Caramel Pecan Tarts

Add this delicious treat to your recipe book!

SERVINGS: 18 | PREP TIME: 20 MINS | COOK TIME: 20 MINS

mini_caramel_tarts_1030x448-copy.jpg

INGREDIENTS:

CRUST INGREDIENTS:

  1. 1 1/4 cups almond flour or almond meal

  2. 1 cup pecans or walnuts

  3. 4 teaspoons coconut flour*, sifted if lumpy

  4. 5 tablespoons unsalted butter

  5. 1/4 cup light or dark brown sugar

  6. 2 teaspoons cinnamon

  7. 1/8 teaspoon salt

FOR THE FILLING:

  1. 3/4 cup tightly packed dark brown sugar

  2. 2/3 cup whipping cream

  3. 7 tablespoons unsalted butter

  4. 1 teaspoon vanilla

  5. 3/8 teaspoon salt

  6. 2 1/2 cups chopped pecans

INSTRUCTIONS:

      1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line two muffin pans with 18 muffin liners.
      2. Place all the crust ingredients in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the S-blade and pulse for 15 seconds or until there are no large chunks of nuts left. Press 1 tablespoon of crust onto the bottom of the each liner.
      3. Bake for 7 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for at least 20 minutes. Caramel will leak through if crust is still hot.
      4. Place the chopped pecans on a baking sheet and roast for 4-6 minutes. Pecans burn easily, so check them every 2 minutes. Remove from the oven.
      5. To prepare the caramel, heat the sugar, cream, butter, vanilla and salt in a heavy bottom saucepan over medium heat.
      6. Stir until combined and then simmer for 8 minutes. Do not stir. If needed, tilt the pan to redistribute the mixture.
      7. Remove from the heat. The caramel will be quite thin at this point. Let it cool for 20 minutes or until it begins to thicken. Stir in the nuts and then spoon about 2 tablespoons of caramel pecan mixture onto the top of each baked crust.
      8. Refrigerate the tarts for 2-3 hours or until the caramel has firmed up.

Weber: Avoid These 5 Mistakes When Making Ribs

58b5f651422e6_Ribs.jpg

#1 Wait to put the BBQ sauce on at the end

Putting BBQ sauce on the ribs at the beginning seems like it would be a good idea. After all, isn’t that BBQ sauce flavor going to get into the meat and make it taste better? Well, not really. What’s actually going to happen is the BBQ sauce is probably going to burn and create a layer of black char all over the surface of your ribs. Avoid this by adding the BBQ sauce only at the very end of the grilling session. After brushing the sauce onto the ribs they will usually take another 10 to 30 minutes, depending on the temperature you’re grilling at. You can also wait until you’ve taken the ribs off the grill before putting the sauce on them.

#2 A little flavor goes a long way

Once upon a time, I thought that I needed to go really heavy on using seasonings in order to give my ribs a good flavor, but it’s actually a much better idea to lean a little bit on the light side when it comes to seasoning in order to not overpower the flavor of the meat itself. You can always add more seasoning if you need to, but you can’t really take it off if you’d added too much. The same can be said about using woods to add a smoky flavor to the ribs. Too much smoke might end up making the ribs taste bitter.

#3 Boiling your ribs before grilling them is cheating

It’s not unheard of for some grillers to boil their ribs before grilling them. It’s a method that can be used to cut down the overall cooking time, and can also make for some very tender ribs, but if you’re using your stove to do most of the cooking and then just finishing them on the grill you may as well just cook them in the oven or broiler. Boiling your ribs will also remove a lot of flavor from them.

#4 Remove the membrane

On the back of most ribs, there is a thin connective piece of tissue called the membrane or silver-skin. It’s a good idea to remove the membrane from the rib otherwise it can become tough and rubbery during the grilling process. Click here for instructions on removing the membrane.

#5 Low and slow is the name of the game

Pretty much every rib recipe out there calls for using a low and slow, indirect grilling method. Grilling them over direct, high heat is a great way to overcook them and have them turn out tough. Indirect, low heat will help create tender meat that will easily tear off of the bone. It can be tempting to try and grill them faster over direct, high heat, but going low and slow will allow you to create some ribs that will impress your guests, and your taste buds.

Weber Rib Recipes
At some point, every meat lover has eaten boring, bland ribs that have been drowned with BBQ sauce to provide them with some flavor, but it doesn’t have to be that way!

Game Day Grilling Tips from Broil King

12604662_1071048146249629_2609153768392387482_o.jpg

Football championships are some of the biggest grilling days of the year.    If you are planning on firing up the grill, here are a few helpful tips to ensure winning results. 

  • Preheat your barbecue to at least 400º before cleaning or putting food on the grill.  If it doesn’t sizzle, your grill is not hot enough
  • Bring proteins to room temperature before grilling – this will enhance tenderness and result in more even cooking
  • Lightly oil any grill surface with vegetable oil while hot – it will keep food from sticking
  • Grill with the lid closed – it will reduce flare-ups, improve flavour, and keep a more constant temperature
  • Preheat BBQ sauces on the side burner – cold sauce applied to warm meats can toughen the meat and lengthen cooking times
  • Use a meat thermometer to ensure the food is cooked to the desired donesness for maximum juiciness and tenderness.
  • Let cooked proteins rest between one quarter and one-third of the total cooking time before serving (5 minutes for steaks, chops, and other individual portions, up to 30 minutes for chickens, turkeys, and roasts)
  • Prep as much as you can ahead of time.  Cut up vegetables,  prepare toppings,  marinate meat and form patties the day before to ensure you don’t miss any of the action on game day.

Here are a few recipe ideas that are sure to please any game day crowd
