No grill, no problem: Bill cooks up a storm over Memorial Day (Watch)
While many New Jerseyans went down the shore or had barbecues on Memorial Day weekend, I was in the kitchen whipping up some great meals. Since I still don't have a grill, I stayed in the kitchen and cooked there.
No grill & stale bread, it was the perfect Memorial Day meal.
Black Eyed peas...sweet & spicy...8 hours in a crock pot...cayenne & molasses, mustard
Deviled eggs...mayo, mustard, cayenne, celery salt, paprika, fresh cut chives
Pulled pork...low 225 & slow...8-10 hours pork shoulder (boston butt) olive oil, salt & pepper, garlic powder, fresh parsley, garlic cloves (big pieces), red pepper flakes
Brine pork for at least 24 hours in the fridge...water, sugar, salt, parsley, garlic & red pepper flakes
Broccoli Rabe...boiling water 3-5 minutes, until bright green...then saute in pan w/ olive oil, red pepper flakes, 4-5 cloves of garlic, salt & pepper. Don't forget to salt the water AFTER it comes to a boil.
Day old Portuguese rolls. cut rolls in half...under broiler melt provolone cheese on each half. One side gets rabe, other side gets pork...awesome. Add a little vinegar BBQ sauce, and/or Tabasco, or nothing at all...
My first dish was the pulled pork.
I wasn't done after the pulled pork. I also made ribs, beans and eggs.
