  • Gorgonzola Gremolata Lamb Chops

    Gorgonzola Gremolata Lamb Chops

    Ingredients - Serves 2

    • 4 Lamb Chops 
    • ½ cup Panko Bread Crumbs
    • 1 tbsp. Grey Poupon Dijon Mustard
    • ½ cup BelGioioso Cheese Gorgonzola
    • 1 Lemon
    • 2 tbsp. Parsley
    • 3 Garlic Cloves
    • 2 tbsp. Fresh Thyme
    • 1/16 tsp. Salt & Pepper
    • 2 tbsp. Olive Oil
    • 8 Asparagus Stalks
    • 1/16 tsp. Lemon Zest

    Preparation

    1. In a mixing bowl add mashed garlic, chopped parsley, thyme leaves, mustard, lemon juice, gorgonzola, bread crumbs, salt, pepper and olive oil. Mix together and set aside.
    2. Pre-heat your skillet for five minutes before adding the lamb chops. Drizzle some olive oil onto a hot skillet then add the lamb chops. (We used a cast iron skillet) For a dry sear make sure the lamb chops are not touching.
    3. After 4 to 5 minutes turn the lamb chops over. A beautiful crust has formed on the one side. Add the asparagus spears to the center of the cast iron skillet.
    4. After 5 more minutes on the flame pack a ¼ cup of the Gorgonzola Gremolata on top of each lamb chop. Take your skillet and place it into a preheated 400 degree oven for 7 minutes. The topping will melt nicely as the lamb chops finish in the oven.
    5. Take the skillet out after your lamb chops are to your desired doneness. We recommend medium doneness at 130°F.
    6. Plate two lamb chops and some asparagus and top with some lemon zest. Enjoy!

     

  • Certified Angus Beef ® brand Grilled Flat Iron Steak Marinade exceptional flavor

    Certified Angus Beef ® brand Grilled Flat Iron Steak with Rosemary

    Ingredients - Serves 3-4

    • 1.5-2lbs. Palmer’s Flat Iron Steak
    • 2 oz Gino Toschi Classic Balsamic Glaze
    • 2 oz Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce
    • 2 oz Grey Poupon Dijon Mustard
    • 2 cups Simplot Corn & Black Bean Fiesta Blend
    • 1 sprig Fresh Rosemary

    Preparation

    1. Combine the balsamic glaze, Worcestershire sauce and Dijon mustard together with a whisk. Once these ingredients are combined dress the flat iron steak on both sides and place in a bag or container and place in the fridge. Marinate for 20 minutes (4-6 hours is even better)
    2. After the steak has marinated top the steak with fresh rosemary. Place the steak directly onto a hot grill. After 4-5 minutes turn the steak over and baste with the leftover marinade while it finishes cooking.
    3. In a separate sauce pan, warm the corn and black bean blend for 6 minutes over medium heat remembering to stir frequently. Take the steak off of the grill after it has reached your desired doneness. For a medium rare finish we recommend the internal temperature to reach 118F degrees. Let the steak rest for 5 minutes before cutting for a medium rare finish.
    4. To serve, slice the flat iron steak across the short side into ¼” thick slices and place on top of the fiesta corn and black bean blend. To add a little pizazz burn the remaining sprig of rosemary with a flame for a smoky garnish. Enjoy!

    Buffalo Marinated Ribeye Steak with Blue Cheese Butter

    Ingredients - Serves 4

    • 4 (12-ounce) Certified Angus Beef ® ribeye steaks
    • 1 cup hot sauce, like Frank's Red Hot
    • 1/2 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
    • 1/2 cup vegetable oil, divided
    • 5 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    • 2 tablespoons chili powder
    • 3 teaspoons black pepper, divided
    • 1 stick (4-ounces) unsalted butter, at room temperature
    • 4 ounces crumbled blue cheese
    • 1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic
    • 6 stalks celery
    • 1 bunch carrots with tops (6 slim carrots)
    • 1 teaspoon salt

    Preparation

    1. In a medium bowl, whisk together hot sauce, soy sauce, 1/4 cup vegetable oil, chopped garlic, chili powder and 2 teaspoons black pepper. Place ribeye steaks in a large zipper-locking plastic bag and pour in half of marinade. Seal and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 3 hours.
    2. Combine butter, blue cheese, granulated garlic and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Roll with plastic wrap into a log shape, 1-inch in diameter; refrigerate 2 hours or until butter is firm.
    3. Preheat grill or broiler to high (450°F). If using grill, keep one third of grill off. Trim root end from celery stalks, keeping any leaves at top of stalks intact. Toss celery stalks and carrots, with their tops intact, in remaining oil and season with salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Grill or broil until vegetables are lightly charred but still retain some crispness; set on cool side of grill or turn oven off.
    4. Warm reserved sauce in a small saucepan over low heat. Remove steaks from marinade, pat dry and grill to desired doneness; about 3-4 minutes per side for medium rare (internal temperature of 125°-130°F). Remove steaks from grill and rest for 5 minutes.

  • Palmer's Certified Angus Beef ® brand Beef Satay with Mezclajete Hot Sauce & Hush Puppies

    Beef Satay with Mezclajete Hot Sauce & Hush Puppies

    Ingredients - Serves 2

    • 1 pkg Palmer’s Certified Angus Beef ® brand Beef Tenderloin Medallions
    • 1 pkg Palmer’s Hush Puppies
    • 1 Bottle Ring of Fire Mezclajete Hot Sauce
    • 2 Cups Monterey Jack Cheese
    • 2 Green Onions
    • 1 Jalapeno
    • 6 Skewers (soaked in water)

    Preparation

    1. Place a one beef medallion on its side and make a cut about an 1/8 of an inch in from the side. Turn the knife parallel to the cutting board. Using small strokes rock the knife back and forth as you roll out the medallion. Take your time. The medallion will then become a thin ribbon of meat. Cut the ribbon in half and place to the side. Do this for each of the beef medallions.
    2. One at a time flatten one of the beef ribbons onto the cutting board and gently skewer the entire length of piece. Once skewered stretch the beef out on the stick so it can cook evenly. (Make sure to soak the skewers in water a 1/2 hour before you add the meat. This will prevent the skewers from burning on the hot grill)
    3. Once you have skewered all the pieces, season both sides with the Mezclajete hot sauce. Place steak kabobs onto a hot 400 degree grill.
    4. As the beef grills take your hush puppies out of the package and pile them onto one side of your cast iron skillet. Add some Monterey Jack cheese to the hush puppies and place them into an oven set at 400 degrees.
    5. Turn the beef kabobs over and add some more Mezclajete hot sauce. It only needs a few minutes to cook on each side.
    6. Slice your green onions and jalapeno into small pieces.
    7. After 6 or 7 minutes take your hush puppies out of the oven.
    8. Garnish with the green onions and sliced jalapenos.
    9. Pile the beef skewers onto the side. Add some more Mezclajete hot sauce for extra HOT kick and enjoy this spicy dish!

  • The Perfect Turkey

    The Perfect Turkey

    Bird Size - Match the size of your Thanksgiving turkey to the size of your crowd. Smaller birds fit in the refrigerator better and are easier to handle. If you’re hosting a big crowd and have two ovens, consider roasting two smaller birds instead of a large one (this also gives you a good excuse to try two kinds of stuffing). Some cooks look forward to turkey leftovers as weekend fare; others prefer to serve just enough to feed the guests at the feast.

    Turkey Math - For birds under 16 pounds, figure at least 1 pound of turkey per person. For birds 16 pounds and heavier, figure a bit less since there’s more meat in proportion to bone. If you want substantial seconds and leftovers, allow another 1/2 pound per person.

    Prepare - For birds under 16 pounds, figure at least 1 pound of turkey per person. For About an hour before roasting, take the turkey out of the fridge. Remove any packaging and the bag of giblets (check in the body cavity and in the neck cavity). Set the turkey breast-side up on the roasting rack and let it sit. This takes the chill off the meat, which helps the meat cook faster and more evenly, and it dries out the skin, which promotes browning and crisping. Optional Extras - Rub minced herbs or ground spices into (or beneath) the skin for more flavor, place a few halved lemons or garlic cloves inside the cavity of the turkey.

    Roast - For birds under 16 pounds, figure at least 1 pound of turkey per person. For Set the oven temperature to 400 degrees. The turkey will spend the first 20 minutes at 400 degrees uncovered. After the first 20 minutes, tent the turkey with foil, drop the temperature to 350 degrees and cook for 20 minutes per pound. Start checking the temperature of your turkey about half-way through the scheduled cooking time to gauge how fast it’s cooking. Check the Temperature - To make sure that turkey is fully cooked through and through, check its temperature in three places: the breast, the
    outer thigh, and the inside thigh. The turkey will continue to cook once it’s removed from the oven and given time to rest. We recommend you pull the turkey once it’s reached 160 degrees so that it rises to a safe 165. Rest your bird for at least 20 minutes.

    Rest - Lift the whole turkey (still on the rack) and transfer it to a cutting board. Tent the turkey with aluminum foil and let it rest for 20 minutes or so. This gives time for the meat to firm up and the juices to be re-absorbed into the muscle tissue, making the turkey easier to slice and taste juicier.
