pork medium cooked

  I remember, as a kid, watching my Grandmother cooking on the old woodstove. She would often make delicious meals of roast beef, turkey and roast pork. That is of course, on top of all the ducks me and my ultra-rugged hunting buddies would bring in from the blind. Speaking about pork now, we were always told to cook our pork to well done. In fact, my Grampa wouldn’t eat “the goddam stuff” until it was cooked… and cooked… and [Read More]

Pork Tenderloin (or wild boar) with Apples & Pears

Pork Tenderloin (or wild boar) with Apples & Pears

Pork is one of the few meats that I buy from the store these days.  If there were any wild hogs around here, I’d likely never buy pork… but there isn’t.  And, I just friggin’ love pork! Next year, I plan to raise two hogs here at my house.  (No, not IN my house.  AT my house, outside.)  This recipe would easily work with wild boar and if you’ve never eaten it, try it.  If you have none in your [Read More]

Blueberry – Chocolate Sauce

Pork Cooked To Medium

Let’s use a popular meat for this application… venison chops.  Many people call them chops, but they’re actually rib steaks from the deer.  I think we sometimes say chops because they’re so small and about the size of smaller store bought pork chops.  They also look a lot like lamb chops. This is one of the dishes I grilled on the Food Network show I did back in 2009. Ingredients:  Olive oil 1 ½ cups red wine 1 cup blueberries ¼ cup chocolate [Read More]

Sweet Carrots with Tarragon

Sweet Carrots with Tarragon

This is one you must whip out if you ever have someone try to tell you they don’t like carrots, especially – kids!  Spoiled little brats… Use your own discretion as to how many carrots you’ll need, but I normally go with two medium to large carrots per person, because they always ask for more.  This is a great side dish for almost any wild game or chicken, beef or pork dishes.  They don’t keep that well in the fridge [Read More]

Caramelized Onions

Caramelized Onions

“Hard to beat caramelized onions on a moose steak!” I love onions… I love ‘em cooked, I love ‘em raw, I love ‘em pickled, but most of all I love those damn things caramelized. I know a few people (weird people) who say they don’t like onions. I’ll bet my favourite frying pan that if these weird people tried caramelized onions, they’d change their tune. And, fast! Onions become very sweet and mild when they caramelize. They get very soft [Read More]

Ultra-Rugged Baked Beans

Ultra-Rugged Baked Beans

One of my earliest memories of when I was a little kid, was watching my grandmother cook on the old wood burning cook stove.  She was amazing… and one of the family favourites was her baked beans.  I used to laugh my little ass off after we all ate the beans, because when my Grampa farted, the whole house shook! I’ve done a lot guiding for fishermen and hunters in my life and I often cook for them too.  There [Read More]

Venison Meatballs and Sauce

Venison Meatballs and Sauce

 This is a great way to use up some of the ground venison or “moose burger” that seems to stay in the freezer a little longer than it probably should.  And, besides… everyone loves spaghetti and meatballs.  Or, rigatoni and meatballs… or, penne and meatballs… or… or… These babies freeze well, so don’t be afraid to double up on the recipes below and make a big batch of ’em.  (Texan for “them.”)  The recipe below will make about a dozen really [Read More]

Creamy Turkey Rolls with Basil Pesto

Creamy Turkey Rolls with Basil Pesto

This one of the items I made on the cooking show pilot we recently produced.  It is absolutely delicious!  I hope you don’t mind me bragging my ass off for a second or so…  this dish is crunchy, creamy and loaded with flavour, the way a good dish should be! Of course, this recipe will work with any white fowl and likely with the right cut of pork.  I used normally turkey because chicken, quail, grouse and pheasant are smaller making it [Read More]

Test the Patterns on Your Shotgun

Test Pattern Your Shotgun

I recently bought a new (yes, another one) shotgun. It came with three interchangeable chokes, as do most new shotguns these days. I plan to use it for waterfowl hunting, mainly, so it’s very important that I know what the three different chokes do to the patterns, with different loads and at different ranges. The three chokes that came with the gun are full choke which gives the tightest pattern of the three, modified, giving a medium pattern and improved [Read More]

Salmon Cakes with Honey, Lemon & Dill Sauce

Salmon Cakes with Honey, Lemon & Dill Sauce

This recipe works great with any kind of fish, but salmon is the best, in my opinion.  You could easily swap out the fish for shrimp, lobster or crab too.  Most restaurants serve a red pepper sauce with their crab cakes and it’s really friggin’ good!  But, for this salmon cake recipe I came up with something a little different.  And, who the hell doesn’t like lemon, honey and dill? Weird people maybe… Ingredients:  Cakes 6 ounces fresh salmon (canned salmon sucks, [Read More]
