Chimichurri Sauce

Posted by Wine & Spice on 7/11/2018 to Quick & Easy

We have had a streak of ridiculously hot weather lately.  A Chimichurri Sauce is an Argentinian herb sauce that can be served with steak, fish, chicken or pork.  It is also fabulous served over roasted or grilled veggies for our Keto/Vegan friends.


I used Red Pepper flakes to add a little heat to this sauce.  Depending on what herbs you have growing in your garden, you can add a little thyme, oregano, basil or rosemary.  You can season this fabulously easy sauce with Adobo Lime, Perfect Chili, Mexican Blast, and if you switch out cilantro with basil use An Evening in Tuscany!


I served this with an Adobo Lime seasoned skirt steak with Perfect Chili Oven Roasted Potatoes.  Click links to see these recipes.


A nice iced cold Corona Light with Lime pairs really well with this dish.

Adobo Lime Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

Posted by Wine & Spice on 6/16/2017 to Quick & Easy

This is one of my favorite salsas.  So fresh tasting with the lovely slightly roasted/charred flavor of the veggies.  I used Adobo Lime in this recipe because is adds such depth to the salsa.  This is hand blended with fennel seed, cumin, coriander, black pepper, garlic, Mexican oregano, lime zest, kosher salt, thyme and rosemary.  It is one of Milford Spice Company’s all time best sellers.  One of my families favorite!


You can vary the peppers you use depending on how spicy you like it.  More serranos and jalapeños=more spicy.


You can use this salsa for anything.  As a topper for tacos, burritos, enchiladas, or just chips.  It is fabulous on Huevos Rancheros too!

Black Bean & Corn Salad

Posted by Wine & Spice on 2/15/2017 to Sauces


This is great side dish to go with just about any southwestern dish.  It is a salsa/salad.  You can use it to top a dish as a salsa, or serve as a salad on the side.  It stores well in fridge so it lasts for several days.  You can add tomatoes, but then it would be best eaten right away.  Tomatoes deteriorate very rapidly in fridge, refrigeration damages the membranes in the tomato and causes it to taste gritty and mealy.


Taco Tuesday is such a wonderful blend of chili powder, domestic paprika, granulated onion, cumin, granulated garlic, Mexican oregano, brown sugar, black pepper medium, and cayenne pepper.  It is fantastic in just about any southeastern recipe.


A glass of chilled Chardonnay is great with this meal.


I used some leftover Black Bean & Corn Salad to top a plate of Nacho's for lunch the next day.  So yummy!

Pork Chops with Ravensview Strawberry Sauce

Posted by Wine & Spice on 6/5/2016 to Sauces


Strawberry season is here!  I wanted to make a savory dish with these luscious berries, pork and fruit together are made in heaven.  I decided to make a savory strawberry sauce with Ravensview Rosemary Garlic.  This is hand blended with sea salt, black pepper, garlic, onion, and rosemary. It is a real winner for lamb and other red meats. Great on beef ribs and roasts.  And as it turns out, great in a berry sauce too!


I had a box of King Arthur’s Potato Pancake mix, and thought this would be a great time to try.  Pork, potato and fruit, classic!  I added 4 tbsp chopped onion, 1 chopped jalapeño to this potato mixture as well as 1 tsp Ravensview Rosemary Garlic.  Very tasty!


This is super easy to make, and I was told by my neighbor that tasted this dish, that this meal is a real contest winner!


A glass or Shiraz went very well with this dish.
