Where has your lifelong love affair with the microwave gotten you? Now is the time to break out and really start cooking. Ain’t no thing but a chicken wing.
Unless you wear a white chef’s coat at your day job, lamb is not an item on most guys’ grocery list, but there’s no reason it shouldn’t be. Lamb is as easy to prepare as any of its four-legged fellows. This recipe for lamb kebab sliders turn the somewhat exotic meat into certified dude food while a simple but savory coriander mint mayo adds gourmet flair.
Nobody eats chicken fried steak because it’s healthy. We eat it because it’s fried in boiling oil and this age-old technique makes just about everything taste amazing. Equally amazing is how simple chicken fried steak is to prepare. And if you’ve never fried beef, give it a go.
If you’re the traditional meat and potatoes type, you should probably try Cherkees. They’re potato chips loaded with chunks of beef jerky. The good news: they’re not fried plus they’re low in fat and pack 12 grams of protein per serving.
Yes, making your own homemade salsa is a bit more involved than pouring it out of a jar, but not much. In terms of difficulty and prep time, it’s on par with making a sandwich, so why not give it a shot? You’ll eliminate preservatives, loads of sodium, and come off like a real pro when the chips get dipped.
When’s the last time you chomped down on your childhood favorite, the good old PB & J sando? Maybe you’re too grown up for that stuff now. Or maybe you just didn’t know about The Jam Shop’s booze-infused jellies and jams? Drunken Monkey features bananas and a splash of rum, while the Bourbon Blueberry has … you get the idea.
Dude, this is you. We found a recipe for the bomb-ass pulled pork sandwich. We knew you’d be down because this recipe has just three ingredients: pork, root beer, and barbecue sauce. After a few hours marinating in root beer, the pulled pork just melts in your mouth. Trust us on this one.
Right up there with the trusty old grilled cheese and the fried egg, chicken kebabs rank as one of the easiest things to make in the kitchen. But if knowing that making killer kebabs is as easy as boiling water doesn’t excite you, perhaps you should also know this recipe includes “bacon paste.”
Alongside nachos, beer, and hot wings, M&M’s are perfect game day snacks. Now you can get M&M’s in your favorite teams’ colors and stamped with their logos. If you like the Cleveland Browns these NFL M&M’s won’t be that exciting, but then, neither is their offensive line. Sorry Ohio, it’s true.
The folks at Thanasi Foods sent over a bulging box of snacks for us to try out. While we enjoy a good jerky treat as much as the next guy, we couldn’t possibly dive into this much goodness all by ourselves. So, we are passing it along to one of you. They have some interesting brand partnerships that make for unique flavors… like Jim Beam Kentucky Bourbon Soaked Beef Jerky and Vlasic Dill Pickle flavored Sunflower seeds.
