Twice Grilled Corned Beef Reubens

I am naming this twice grilled Corned Beef Reubens because the corned beef itself was indirect heat slow grilled then the sliced meat was used to make sandwiches grilled on the flattop.  This was a bi-product of  St Patty’s Day Corned Beef availability, an anxiousness to get grilling outside, and the existence of our new meat slicer.  Reubens are a good ol classic that we recreated by cooking Corned Beef in a bit of an unorthodox way and combining it with the orthodox rye bread, sauerkraut, swiss, and homemade spicy Russian dressing.

Grilled Tuna “Tacos” with Green Salsa Sauce

Another use for versatile and reasonably priced tuna steaks!  This was a tuna steak that was seasoned in taco spices, grilled, shredded, and placed on a lettuce leaf taco.  Late summer tomatillos led to a fresh green salsa type sauce on top and sauteed fajita veggies brought together the many tastes from a similar family that don’t usually overlap.

Thyme Pork Chops with Grilled Havarti and Kale

A few things are going on here (1) squeezing in mild autumn grilling, (2) using CSA thyme and kale, and (3) grilling cheese for the first time though I have wanted to for quite a while.  I got some bone in pork chops in order to use some thyme that was nearing its end and also my mom gave me a package of havarti grilling cheese.  Throw in some CSA kale and another fall themed meal easily came together!

Grilled Turkey Breast with Bacon Blanket

What exactly am I looking at you ask?  This is obviously a turkey breast on an indirect heat charcoal grill with a blanket woven of bacon on top of it.  Obviously.  I wanted to squeeze in some good grilling as the season was about to close and a cheap turkey breast from Wholey’s (about $14 for this 8 pound double breast) offered a great opportunity.  I have made this before by roasting the turkey and have indirect heat grilled a whole turkey, so the bacon was what differentiated this post from the others.

Grilled Roasemary Pork Loin with Apple Cider Au Jus and French Breakfast Radishes

I had a pork loin and some rosemary which is a combo that I fancy and also wanted to grill it while the weather was still so mild.  We also had some French breakfast radishes which I had never seen before to my knowing.  I kept the pork on the upper shelf of the grill and it seared and charred well while not cooking to quickly and drying out.  The radishes were sauteed and cheesed.  Sticking with the fall theme, I cooked down an apple cider sauce that was used like a dipping au jus.

Bacon Cheeseburger Patties

It’s exactly what it seems like it is.  I took bacon and cooked and chopped it along with cubed extra sharp cheddar cheese and worked them into patties with some seasoning.  Simple, quick, and highly effective!

Buffalo……Pork Chops?

As a Foodbuzz participant (yeah, over to the right there) we receive promotions in return for trying them out and letting you know about them like the recent Godiva coffee.  This summer we received KC Masterpiece Buffalo Marinade.  I wanted to do something different than the cliche buffalo chicken and had some boneless pork chops on hand with fresh blue cheese and a nice summer grill.

First Try Homemade Cheese……Finger Sandwiches

I recently ordered a homemade mozzarella and ricotta making kit.  I have tried to make the mozzarella twice, and both times it has not quite worked out.  The problem is that most standard grocery store milk has been pasteurized at too high of a temperature and the enzymes have been damaged and cannot form strong enough curds.  I have just learned all of this by the way.  So when this happens, it says to use the mixture as a cheese spread which I have used here to make finger sandwiches for a recent party.  Look forward to a successful mozzarella post soon, but in the meantime….makeshift party finger sandwiches!

REAL Tuna Noodle Casserole

Tuna noodle casserole is an American classic consisting of canned tuna, cream of mushroom soup, and sometimes green beans and other ingredients.  What made this REAL tuna noodle casserole was the use of grilled tuna steaks.  It still contained canned cream of mushroom soup and also green beans, garlic, and locally grown shiitake mushrooms from our CSA.

Grilled Meatballs

Yes that heading is correct, I made grilled meatballs.  Had some ground beef and a hankering for meatballs during some pretty hot days and decided to give grilling meatballs a try.  It worked amazingly well and produced a great taste of the grill with the Italian meatball flavors which were great dressed up with some sauce and cheese.
