Garlic Bread Pizza

Garlic Bread PizzaGarlic Bread PizzaGarlic Bread Pizza, What’s the big deal right?

I saw this advertised in the paper last week when Pizza Hut introduced their Garlic Bread Pizza.  my first thought was, “Man, they’re gettin’ desperate”, but the more I thought about how much I love Garlic Bread and how much I love Pizza I decided to try making it myself.  I mean, I already know I make a bad ass pizza so I figured I might as well combine the two for myself and see how it turns out!  LET ME TELL YOU, Garlic Bread Pizza is THE BOMB!  Honestly though, I still haven’t tried the Hut’s yet but I’m definitely doing this in my own kitchen again and you can do it to.  Whether you want to dig in and make everything from scratch or if you want to keep it as simple as possible and just buy a few pre made ingredients, you’re going to love Garlic Bread Pizza.
For those that want to keep it simple and maybe even have some fun with the kids, watch my video.  Then pick up some pre made sliced buttered and seasoned garlic bread from your local grocery, a jar of your favorite spaghetti or pizza sauce, some Pepperoni or favorite toppings, and some Mozzarella cheese with Provolone mix.  Layer it on a pan, bread, sauce, cheese then toppings and bake 500 degrees f. for 6 to 8 minutes.  Once you try your own Garlic Bread Pizza you’ll understand and you won’t regret it!

Secret Sauce for Ham or Shrimp Fried Rice

Secret Sauce is made by Kikkoman

I think most people would agree that they struggle with the right flavoring when they try to throw together a homemade Ham or Shrimp fried rice; if they’re not ordering take out that is.  Well it just so happens that I have a quick fix to your flavoring needs.  The only problem is it’s hard to find on the shelf at any grocery store.  But if you manage to get your hands on a bottle, try this the next time you make your favorite fried rice recipe: Canola oil, eggs, steamed rice, scallions, and your favorite cooked Ham or Shrimp, then add this Tempura Dipping Sauce over the top and stir.  Trust me!  And you can thank me later!

Carne Asada Recipe with lengua (Beef Tongue)

Carne Asada RecipeMy Easy Carne Asada Recipe

A friend of mine introduced me to Lengua, which is Beef Tongue.  He brought it in to work one day all prepared and ready to eat.   I’m sure you can imagine my hesitation when he offered me a taco full of the meat.  Long story short, to my surprise it was delicious and I use it now for a Carne Asada recipe. This by far makes some of the most delicious tacos I have ever eaten! A slow roast in a Crockpot starts first thing in the morning before I go to work and it’s ready to shred, season and sear when I come home. Throw in all my favorite fresh vegies and some white corn tortillas and we’re good to go!

About this Carne Asada recipe

This recipe is very simple and practically all the work is done for you.  If you’ve sought out this recipe I’m sure you’ve had beef tongue before and you’re probably not looking to expand your horizons just to try it for the first time now are you.  So you are well aware that you are going to have to remove the skin once the tongue is fully cooked.  You’ll need a slow cooker(unless you prefer the oven), a sharp knife, a Beef Tongue, Canola oil, fresh garlic, your favorite onions and/or scallions, cilantro,1 lime, salt and pepper, and last but not least your favorite tortilla’s.

Introducing my Carne Asada recipe

1  Beef Tongue
1 handful chopped Cilantro
1 Lime (squeezed)
½ Diced Bell Pepper
1/2 Diced White or Yellow onion (your preference)
1 tsp. Minced garlic
2 Green onion stalks diced into Scallions
Salt and pepper to taste

Carne asada recipe instructions

10 hours of cook time in a slow cooker on low heat. Then separate the meat from the tongue skin and slice the meat into your desired portions.  Once that is completed, sear the beef in a skillet with Canola oil, garlic, onions, and cilantro. One whole lime is added during the sear which is really important because this is what really gives the Lengua its additional flavor.  This Carne Asada recipe is going to require salt and pepper to your personal taste, and in my experience a lot of salt.
