Instant Pot Baked Beans

Posted by Wine & Spice on 7/12/2018 to Instant Pot/Pressure Cooker

The Instant Pot has to be one of the greatest invention ever!  I was always too scared to use the old fashioned pressure cookers, this new on is sooo easy!  Baked Beans is a family favorite, and I wanted to try making it in the new pot.  The end results were better than I could have imagined!


Of course it didn’t hurt to use a new spice blend from MSC called Louisiana Red Beans & Rice.  This is hand blended using onion, garlic, parsley, celery, cumin, cayenne, bay leaf and red pepper flakes.   Also great on sautéed cauliflower rice, black soy beans and as a salad dressing.


We are eating healthier, so I chose a nitrate/nitrite free uncured bacon for this dish. Or you can choose a vegan/keto option as well.


A ice cold beer is a perfect compliment to this dish.

Adobo Lime Skirt Steak with Chimichurri Sauce.  The flavors are truly spectacular.


Adobo Lime is hand blended with fennel seed, cumin, coriander, black pepper, garlic, Mexican oregano, lime zest, kosher salt, thyme and rosemary.  This blend is great in any mexican recipe, bean soup and even great on fish! 


A nice chilled glass of Merlot pairs really well with this dish.

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.

Perfect Chili Oven Roasted Potatoes

Posted by Wine & Spice on 7/11/2018 to Veggies!

This is a super quick side dish to prepare.  Potatoes can handle any seasoning, so be creative.  


Today I am using Perfect Chili Seasoning.  This fantastic mix is hand blended using Ancho chile powder, pasilla negro chile powder, smoked paprika, granulated onion, granulated garlic and cumin.  This blend is fantastic on potatoes, sweet potatoes and corn on the cob.  And, of course Chili!


Of course potatoes is a blend canvass for almost any seasoning.  Try Dillicious, Adobo Lime, Red Beans & Rice and DiDad's Passion for Pepper.


Enjoy!
