Apple Ginger Pork Tostadas with Pineapple Slaw

I’m really excited to share this recipe with you guys. This recipe actually starts with a Cider, Angry Orchard Cider to be exact. This isn’t something I usually drink or cook with. I found one in our refrigerator a while back. I’m not even sure where it came from, but I’ve been brainstorming recipe ideas for weeks now. I’d like to add Angry Orchard has one of the coolest tap handles.

The Ginger was throwing me off, but I figured, I’ve give it a try, and I’m glad I did. The Apple and Ginger flavor were perfect with the Pineapple Slaw.

Growing up, I hated cabbage and that included slaw! I’m not sure what changed but recently, I’ve started liking it. It’s crazy how your taste buds change. I still HATE sauerkraut, though. The addition of Pineapple really made this dish. It added a nice sweetness to the spicy BBQ sauce I used.

I’m also in love with my slow cooker. I can prep everything before work, and when I get home the house smells amazing and dinners finished! The best part, it’s a one pot meal! Win Win!

Any BBQ sauce will work for this recipe, but I recommend trying something with a little heat. The slaw helps cool the spicy but adds an extra layer of flavor.

You can also make these ahead and assemble when ready to eat. Honestly, it’s the prefect meal. It’s a full meal on a crispy tostada.

Weekend Recap

Friday night, we had dinner with our friends Brent and Leaha, in Lake Worth at Havana Hideout.

We started with a massive plate of nachos, and I had the What Guy Ate {the restaurant was featured on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.} My dish came with a  Half Cuban Sandwich, Fish Taco, and Pianono, and Huck ordered a Tamale. Everything was really good.

After dinner, we went to a bonfire on the beach. This is my new favorite thing to do, now! Unfortunately, it was the last one until September.

Lake Worth Bonfire

Saturday, we were sitting around the house. I went out to walk the dogs and told Huck to get ready. We were leaving. I was way to nice outside to be suck inside. We started the day at Guacamole in Jupiter Farms.

We started with the best tortillas chips EVER! The were thick and crispy. Man they were good!

Huck ordered Steak, Chicken, and Shrimp Fajitas

We ate this for 2 more meals, too. They didn’t mess around with portions.

After dropping our leftovers off, we headed to TBC to grab a growler.

With a growler of Gnarly Barley in hand, we made our way to the beach.

Brussels Sprouts Gratin and Sailfish Brewery

Honestly, I can’t remember eating Brussels Sprouts growing up. The first time, I remember trying them, was a few years ago. I’ve been a lover every since, but the only way I ever make them is roasted or sautéed in a pan with Crumbed Bacon, Garlic, and Crushed Red Pepper.

A few weeks ago, Huck wanted Potatoes Gratin. I decided to change it up some. While searching through the freezer, I found a bag of Brussels Sprouts, and came up with a plan.

Brussels Sprouts Gratin

Brussels Sprouts Gratin with Beer, Bacon, and Cheese. Yummy!! I actually made this for Christmas dinner and everyone loved it. We’ll, I think everyone loved it. There wasn’t any left, and I got lots of compliments.

Brussels Sprouts Gratin (4)

For this recipe, I used Cigar City’s Hotter Than Helles Lager. It’s not actually hot but a nice refreshing lager. Munich Helles Lagers are a style of beer. Helles is actually German for Bright. It’s a bright yellow, light refreshing beer. I ordered this beer a few weeks ago on a trip to Fort Peirce.

Fort Pierce and Sailfish Brewery

A few weeks ago, Huck and I were sitting around bored. We both wanted out of the house but couldn’t decided what to do. We finally decided to venture north to Sailfish Brewery. We’ve talked about going for a while and figured it was the perfect excuse to get out of the house.  It’s a new Brewery in Fort Pierce, about and hour north of our house. Once we arrived, he had an early dinner at the Original Tiki Bar.

Original Tiki Bar (1)

It was an open bar style restaurant right on the water.

Original Tiki Bar (2)

I thought I took pictures of our food, but can’t find them. I ordered a Beer Battered Fish sandwich, that was amazing, and Huck ordered Chicken nachos that he really enjoyed as well. We were really surprised with how good the food was. Bars can be hit or miss when it comes to food.

Original Tiki Bar (3)

After dinner, we stopped at P.P. Cobb General Store. Karl told Huck about their impressive craft beer selection. The owner told us he had over 500 different beers.

P.P. Cobb General Store (2)

You can build your own six pack from any beers in the store, even if they’re in a case. Huck started pulling beers out of 6 pack boxes, and I told him you can’t just start pulling any beer out you want. He quickly informed me he could. He’d talked to the owner while I was gawking at the beer.

P.P. Cobb General Store (1)

They also have craft or specialty sodas. They reminded me of the old fashion Coca Cola bottles. Everyone, in town we talked to, raved about the food there, too. They served lunch everyday. I’d like to plan a trip back just for lunch. The city of Fort Pierce is spending a bunch of money to revamp the Downtown area. It was a neat area with cute shops. I wish we had more time to wonder around. It was getting dark by the time we left P.P. Cobb.

Once we bought our beer and random general store stuff, we headed to Sailfish. Sailfish is location in a historical building in downtown Fort Pierce. Another fun fact, one of the girls in the Barley Doll’s, husband, is part owner of the brewery. I spoke with the head brewer a few months ago about possibly doing a brew class with a couple of BD’s and Sailfish. Which reminds me, I should work on that for an upcoming BD event.

Salfish Brewing Co (1)

They’re currently expanding the brewery, and were installing new equipment when we were there. The building to the right will be their new brew house. They had a nice outdoor patio, too.

I can’t remember exactly what beers we tried. I ordered a light beer, a wheat maybe. It was a good beer for what it was. I’ve noticed I don’t like wheat beers that much anymore. I like hops! Huck ordered a Brown that was really good.

Salfish Brewing Co (2)

We got a growler of the brown to go, so I could enjoy one when we got home.

Salfish Brewing Co (3)

It was a fun day. We explored a new area close to home and added another brewery to our list. If you’re ever near the Treasure Coast, I recommend a trip to Fort Pierce and Sailfish.

Brussels Sprouts Gratin

Serves 4
This recipe is great for a cold day. I recommend using a Lager or American Wheat Beer. Strong flavors or bitter beers can over powered the dish. Serve with Roasted Poultry or Beef for a complete meal.

  • 1/3 cup Beer (Lager, Pale Ale, Wheat)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder

  • Cooking Spray

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Combined the Milk, Beer, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, and Pepper in a large bowl. Once fully combined add the Brussels Sprouts, Cheese, and Bacon.

Mamma Mia! Pizza Beer Bread

I love making Beer Bread. I’m not a fan of complicated or labor intensive recipes, and beer bread is the easiest bread recipes I’ve ever made and it only had 5 ingredients.

Pizza Beer Bread Beer Bread 5

I first made Beer Bread 3 or 4 years ago. We had a get together at our house in Georgia, and we’d been hanging out by the pool all. I was a little tipsy when I went inside to start dinner. I threw together the ingredients (I honestly don’t remember measuring anything), put it in the oven, and went  back to the pool. Some how, I remembered the bread baking in the oven and pulled it out just in time. How many beer recipes can you make after a day drinking all day?

Mamma Mia Pizza Beer Beer Bread

I used Mamma Mia! Pizza Beer for this recipe. Pizza Beer is exactly what is sounds like. It has all the flavors of pizza in beer form. It has Oregano, Basil, Tomatoes, and Garlic. Weird combo for a beer, but it’s OK. It was perfect for my bread though.

Pizza Beer Bread Beer Bread 1

If you can’t find Pizza Beer, try a Lager, Pale Ale, Pilsner, Wheat, or IPA for this recipe. I highly recommend enjoying this beer warm out of the oven.

Ginny gave the beer two paws up too. Huck left the leftover bread on the stove and Ginny decided to help himself to my Beer Bread. He almost went to the pound for that one. I was really looking forward to leftovers. Luckily for him, this recipes is super easy.

I have 2 more great recipes to post with Mamma Mia’s Pizza Beer. Hopefully, it will not take me a week to post another recipe.

Beer Bread

Ingredients

  • 3 cups Self Rising Flour
  • 3 tablespoons Sugar
  • 12oz Beer
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 tablespoons Melted Butter

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine all ingredients in a mixer until fully combined. Add dough to a greased loaf pan and bake for 40-45 minutes. Remove from the oven and brush with butter. Continue cooking for 10 additional minutes.
Serve warm.

Vanilla Porter Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcakes

The Holy Trinity.

In culinary school, we talked about the Holy Trinity a bunch. Sounds like an odd topic for culinary school, but we were not talking about religion. The Holy Trinity is pretty much the base for every good Cajun recipe. The combination of Onions, Peppers, and Celery. It’s used for everything.

Many cuisines have their form of the Holy Trinity. The French call it Mirepoix: a mixture of 50% Onions, 25% Carrots, and 25% Celery. Leave it to the French cuisine to make everything complicated.

Well, I’m starting my own “Holy Trinity”. Cupcakes, Cookies, and Beer! Oh yea! I’m calling it the Ultimate Holy Trinity!

Vanilla Porter Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcakes

Nothing bad can come from this combination. Well, maybe an increase waist line, but everything in moderation, right? You only live once? Whatever helps you sleep at night?

A few weeks ago, I wanted Cookies, but I also wanted Cupcakes. What’s a girl to do? Porter Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcakes, that’s what she did!

I cheated by using store bought, mini, cookies, but oh well. They were amazing, and I had no idea how to make a cookie small enough to fit on a mini cupcake. I’ll add it to my list of things to do.

Vanilla Porter Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcakes (4)

Do you know how many mini cupcakes a box of cake mix makes? 75! I know because that’s how many cupcakes I had sitting around my house. I brought a bunch to work. I took some to the Barley Dolls meet-up. I gave them to neighbors. I even ate 5 while waiting for water to boil. Not my finest moment!

Mini cupcakes are deceiving. “Oh they’re small. I’ll only have one. But wait, that was only one bite. Now, I want another one…. I’ll have one more.” This continues until your laying on the couch, in a chocolate coma, hating yourself for eating a whole cake… “But they were mini, dammit!”

My advice, proceed with caution. Don’t make this recipe when you’re home alone, depressed, lonely, or in any mood that would encourage the consummation of large amounts of sweets. I do not want anyone mad at me because they ate a whole cake.

Vanilla Porter Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcakes (1)

The girls in my Barley Dolls group loved these. Girls loving something made of chocolate? Who would have thought?

Huck also requested these for his birthday in 2 weeks. He wants full size cupcakes, so a full size cookie fits on top. Hey, it’s his birthday. Who am I to complain?

I used Breckenridge Brewery’s Vanilla Porter for this recipe. The beer has a very strong Vanilla favor. Maybe too much vanilla, for my liking, but perfect for desserts. I recently used this beer for Vanilla Porter Chocolate Dipped Waffle Cones, and I have a few more ideas. I’m going Vanilla Porter crazy!  I cheated with this recipe and used a box cake mix. I used the Vanilla Porter instead of Water in my recipe. If you’re worried the beer flavor will be to strong, you can use a mixture of half beer and half water.

Breckenridge Brewery Vanilla Porter

What is your Holy Trinity?

Vanilla Porter Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcakes

Ingredients

  • 1 box Chocolate Cake Mix
  • Stout or Porter
  • 1/2 cup Mini Chocolate Chips
  • 1 jar Cream Cheese Icing
  • 1/8 cup Stout or Porter Beer
  • Mini Cookies (I used Mini Chips Ahoy)
  • 1/8 cup Chocolate Chips (Chopped)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Follow directions on back of cake mix box for combining ingredients. Substitute the Water for Beer. (All Boxed Cake mixes are different. The box mix I used, called for Eggs, Oil, and Water. The Vanilla Beer I used did not have a strong beer flavor. If you're worried the beer will be to strong, try using 1/2 water 1/2 beer.)
Add Chocolate Chips and fully combined.
Fill cupcake liners with batter 3/4 of the way full.
Bake for 10 minutes (for mini cupcakes) or until toothpick comes out clean when inserted to the center.
Allow cupcakes to completely cool.
Combined Beer and Icing. Add to pipping bag and cover each cupcake as desired.
Sprinkle each cupcake with chocolate and add mini cookie. Crush extra cookies and sprinkle over the top if desired.
ENJOY!

Beer Cheese Sauce with Horseradish and Bacon

The title of this recipe makes my mouth water! I mean cheese is great on its own but with beer?!? I’m in heaven!

I’m a huge fan of Cabot Cheese. I stock up on their blocked cheddar whenever it’s on sale. I’ve even converted Huck to a give up his beloved Velveeta for Cabot… Just kidding, but he loves it, too. {If you’re bored, click on the link to read about Huck’s love for all things fake yellow “cheese”}

Beer Cheese Sauce with Horseradish and Bacon

I’m not sure I can call this a recipe. Mixing a few ingredients together seem very “Semi-Homemade” but you know what, this is great and it’s so much easier than making cheese sauce.

Horseradish, Bacon, Beer Cheese Sauce 3

This sauce is amazing. The crappy packaged fries I served it over were not! I almost didn’t take photos of this recipe, but the sauce was so good, and really, this recipes isn’t for fries. I made Turkey Burgers for lunch Saturday, and Huck asked for Crinkle Cut fries. I seen something that said crispers, so I thought it meant crispier fries? In my defense, the picture on the package looks like crinkle cut fries. These were more like battered mashed potatoes, though. It was weird… I still dipped them in these cheese sauce and slathered it all over my burger.

Horseradish, Bacon, Beer Cheese Sauce

I originally made this recipe with an IPA but it was way to bitter. I found a lager in our refrigerator that tasted much better. Sometimes I forget, just because I love IPA’s doesn’t mean that work on everything.

I’d also like to take a moment to say goodbye to the mini glass pitcher. It was so cute and perfect for pictures. That makes 3 mini glass props I’ve broke in the last few weeks. Me+Mini Glass Stuff= Disaster!

I’ll be back later this week with pictures from our Zombie Pub Crawl.

Beer Cheese Sauce with Horseradish and Bacon

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Container Cabot Spreadable Cheese (Flavor of your choice)
  • 2-3 tablespoons Beer (Lager)
  • 3 Strips Turkey Bacon (Cooked and Chopped)

Directions

Combined Cheese and Beer into a bowl. Stir until fully combined. Add Bacon Pieces, stir, and Enjoy

Tangerine Mimosas

I love Brunch. You get a mix of breakfast, lunch, and it’s the only acceptable time to order a drink at 11AM.

Tangerine Mimosa with White Ale Beer

I actually got the idea for beer Mimosas from Das Biergarten. They made their mimosas with orange juice, but I thought I’d change it up with tangerines. These tangerines were so juicy and sweet, I couldn’t pass them up.

Cigar City is a local beer but any Belgian, Wheat, or White Ale would work great.

Cigar City Brewing Florida Cracker Mimosa

Mimosas would be a great addition to Sunday Brunch. I also recommend trying one of my other Breakfast recipes:

Pumpkin Beer Cinnamon Rolls

Dogfish-Pumpkin-Beer-Cinnamon-Rolls

Bluebeery Muffins

These are not beer recipes but still worth posting.

Halloween:

We have a busy Halloween weekend planned. Zombie Pub Crawl and MoonFest! All on the same weekend. Last night, I practiced my zombie makeup. It’s easy to look dead when you’re as pale as me. I also watched a few YouTube videos on making fake wounds using glue, toilet paper, and makeup. We’re headed to the Goodwill when I get off work for our zombie crawl clothes.

Do you dress up for Halloween?

We’ve dressed up for Halloween every year we’ve been together. I don’t care how old I get; I still enjoy dressing up.

Beer Boiled Peanuts

For the most part, the food I make is good. It isn’t to often I make something that goes in the trash without us eating it. Well, I’m officially announcing this today, I can not make Brittle! I almost caught the kitchen on fire, burned myself, and burnt the brittle. It’s frustrating. Note to everyone out there, never add a liquid to hot sugar! I know this but woke up stupid this morning that thought it was a good idea.

Beer Boiled Peanuts

I consider myself a good cook and it bothers me when I mess something up. I have a few things I’m not good at. Stir Fry is at the top of that list. It never comes out good. Ask Huck! It’s always bland or too salty. I suck at cooking Pork Chops, too! 99.9% of the time, they are dry. Huck loves them, and I hate cooking them.

As I’m writing this, I have a pot of peanuts boiling on the stove. I really hope these turn out good. Salt, Water, Beer, Peanuts… If I screw this up, I’m closing the blog and ever cooking again!

Beer and Cajun Boiled Peanuts (5)good

Boiled Peanuts are my last hope for my College Football themed recipe. Today, UGA is playing Tennessee. My plan was to make Pumpkin Seed Beer Brittle. Easy enough, right? NOT!

I originally wanted to make boiled peanuts. It was the only thing that comes to mind when thinking about Tennessee and Fall. Every year my parents would take us to the mountains and we’d always get boiled peanuts. It’s a tradition. Huck and I have done it too. I’ve never made them at home. I’m not sure why? They’re so easy and they make a perfect snack while watching football.

BTW! The peanuts came out great! You wouldn’t be reading this if they didn’t. I had to slap Huck’s hand away a few times while taking pictures “Give me some!”

Beer and Cajun Boiled Peanuts (2)

Hanging out at home, watching SEC Football, and eating Boiled Peanuts… Maybe I am from the South after all!

Beer Boiled Peanuts

Ingredients

  • 1lb Raw or Green Peanuts
  • 1/4-1/3 cup Salt
  • 2 tablespoons Cajun Seasoning
  • 1/2 cup IPA Beer
  • Water

Directions

Rinse Peanuts until water runs clear. Soak Peanuts in water for 30 minutes. Rinse again.
Add Peanuts, Salt, Cajun Spice, and Beer to large pot or slow cooker. Add water to cover.
Stove: Boil for 3-6 hours or until desired tenderness (I like mine a little mussy so I cooked them for 6 hours)
Slow Cooker: Cook on high for 12-16 hours (I found this time online.)

"Green" Peanuts will cook faster than Raw. The peanuts are done with they are no longer crunchy. I like mine very soft)

Shrimp and Sausage Dirty Rice

We made it to Georgia! What what!

That ride seems to get longer and longer each time. I’m sure it also has to do with the fact that once you fly, driving SUCKS!

2013-09-26 21.12.08

We made it to my parents at midnight last night. I got up with my mommy is morning and spent some time with her before she left for work. She gets up at 5:15 ever morning but doesn’t leave until 7AM. I wake up at the last possible minute to get ready and get out the door. No “waking up” for me. It was worth getting up early to spend sometime with her.

This morning Huck is trying to get a few work things finished before our three days of see as many people as we can, starts.

I did manage to do this weeks recipe for my Bulldogs menu. I wasn’t able to find a beer from Louisiana, of course, but decided Sweetwater IPA would work great since we’re in Georgia this weekend.

Dirty Rice with Shrimp and Sausage with beer

This recipe was super simple yet really good. I’m not sure how UGA will do against LSU. I’m not getting my hopes up, but this meal is bound to bring a smile to your face. No matter what the score is!

Sausage and Shrimp Dirty Rice with IPA

I didn’t do a post for UGA’s first game against Clemson, and they loss. Maybe these will help us bet LSU :)

Shrimp and Sausage Dirty Rice with beer

I wanted to go to Athens for the game, but there just isn’t enough time. We may get to squeeze in a trip to Sweetwater Brewery tomorrow, though.

Shrimp and Sausage Dirty Rice

Serves 4
This recipe is spicy. I used Huck's homemade, salt free, spice blend for this recipe. Add spices based off your heat preference. The Cajun Seasonings at the grocery store will work fine for this recipe. Look for a Salt Free version and add salt as needed.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup Rice
  • 1 cup Chicken Stock
  • 2 cups Water
  • 2 tablespoons Cajun Seasoning (I used a homemade version.)
  • 1-2 teaspoon Oil
  • 1/2 large Red Onion (Diced)
  • 1 large Bell Pepper (Diced)
  • 3 cloves Garlic (Chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons Cajun Seasoning
  • 1/2-3/4lb Shrimp (Shelled)
  • 1 large Link of Sausage (Sliced)
  • 1/2 cup Beer

Directions

Combined Rice, Chicken Stock, Water, and Seasoning in a pot with a lid. Bring to a bowl, reduce heat to low, and cover for 20-25 minutes or until rice is tender. Fluff with a fork.
Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add Onions and Peppers and cook for 3-4 minutes before adding the Garlic. Coat Shrimp and Sausage with Cajun Seasoning.
Move Veggies to edge of skillet and add Shrimp and Sausage. Flip to cook both sides evenly. Once Shrimp is cooked, add Beer and stir to fully combine and remove any brown bites on the bottom of the pan.
Add Cooked Rice to the mixture or serve shrimp mixture over the rice.
