Coffee-flavoured BBQ sauce? Why not? It’s a strikingly flavourful combo—sweet, tangy, bold, and rich. It can be used not only on pork but on a variety of other meats. We marinated tenderloin in it and doubled up on the smoky flavour by grilling it on a cedar plank. Serve with a side order of grilled broccolini for extra yum.
Best beer? You can’t go wrong with an IPA or a honey lager to complement this flavourful dish.
Toss with a little oil and season with salt, pepper, and chili flakes. Near the end of grilling, place broccolini beside plank with tenderloin on hot grill for about 6 or 7 minutes. Using tongs, turn a few times until tender and lightly charred. Place on platter with sliced pork and drizzle with lemon juice and some shaved Parmesan.
About 4 hours before cooking, place 10 in (25 cm) cedar plank in water to thoroughly soak. Weigh it down with cans or something heavy to keep it submerged.
In small saucepan, combine barbecue sauce, coffee, tomato paste, thyme, cumin, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Remove and cool. Pour half into shallow bowl or resealable plastic bag, and reserve remaining half. Add tenderloin to bowl or bag and rotate in sauce to evenly coat. Tightly seal and marinate at room temperature for a minimum of 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat barbecue to 350 F (280 C).
When ready to grill meat, place soaked plank on preheated grill. Close lid and heat plank (do not burn) for about 3 minutes. Flip plank and place marinated tenderloin on lightly smoked side. Close grill and barbecue pork on plank for 15 to 20 minutes, or until a meat thermometer registers 145 F (64 C) when meat is tested in the centre. Length of grilling time will depend on the type of barbecue you are using.
When pork is done, remove pork and wood plank and place on baking sheet. Tent loosely with foil and let rest for 5 minutes. Slice into rounds. Pork is perfect with a hint of pink in the centre. Serve with extra sauce and a side order of grilled broccolini.
This hearty version of traditional sloppy joes has a tidy helping of sleep-aiding dietary fibre, thanks to its payload of smoky lentils. Swapping out the doughy bun for sweet bell pepper ups the nutritional ante and visual appeal. It’s also superb as leftovers. Smoke and fire Chipotle peppers are ripened red jalapeno chiles that have been smoked and dried. In stores, they’re typically sold in a rich, smoky flavoured adobo sauce. They add fiery, complex flavour to sauces used for pasta dishes, tacos, and any version of sloppy joes.
If you’re hungry for a nighttime snack, then spoon up this creamy, sweet-tart yogurt bowl to help promote some sweet dreams. It’s also a great breakfast option with a little granola tossed on top. The cherry compote can be made up to 5 days in advance. Less is more Many people would be surprised by the amount of added sugar that can be found in flavoured yogurts, including vanilla. A healthier option is to select products that are labelled “plain” and then let natural sweetness come from fruit toppings.
For many of us, turkey is a comfort food that recalls happy memories. This stew is one that is comforting both to make and to eat. Simmered slowly over a few hours, turkey drumsticks deliver rich flavour as well as a huge punch of protein. Tarragon gives it a fresh, bright pop of flavour that balances the earthy richness of the stew. Turkey contains high levels of B vitamins and selenium, as well as tryptophan, which has been explored in recent research for its role in the formation of the mood regulator serotonin. Leftover turkey You can also make this dish with leftover cooked turkey. Simply start the recipe by browning the leek and onion and adding stock, carrots, and parsnips. When the vegetables are tender, add cooked turkey and continue with the recipe [object Object]
