Pork Chop with Chive Butter & Balsamic Roasted Onions

Pork Chop with Chive Butter & Balsamic Roast Onions | bsinthekitchen.com #dinner #pork #bsinthekitchen

I must say September was a pretty pitiful month for blogging and I apologize for that! It’s not that I haven’t been cooking anything, I just haven’t been taking the time to edit the images, and write up a blog post. I’ve got a few recipes that are quite timely for this fall season, so you can expect a little more blogging this month!

Let’s start with this delicious meal featuring some wonderful ingredients from my mothers garden! The stars of the dish are delicious onions that have been drizzled with balsamic vinegar and roasted, as well as a hearty pork chop finished with chive butter. My house smelled so good after making this, it was a low level of torture, having to wait to eat this while smelling it and taking pictures.

Porchetta Sandwich

Porchetta Sandwich | bsinthekitchen.com #porchetta #sandwich #bsinthekitchen

In my last post, I made Porchetta inspired by the Meat & Bread’s Porchetta sandwich in Vancouver, so obviously I had to do a sandwich post too! It’s really the Porchetta that’s the star here, because there is not much else going on in this sandwich, just delicious roasted pork, crackling, and salsa verde. You’ve got crackling, what more do you need!?

If you plan on making this delicious sandwich, refer to my last post to make the Porchetta and salsa verde (which you should definitely make because it’s AMAZING). Continue reading

Porchetta Pork Shoulder

Ever since eating at Meat & Bread while living in Vancouver (in 2011), I have wanted to try making my own porchetta. It’s been a long time coming, but I have finally made it!! While picking up groceries at my local Sobey’s I noticed they started stocking pork shoulder in the meat section, seizing the moment I picked one up! Already excited by my newly acquired pork shoulder, the fact that it only cost $3.58 (for a 3.5lb roast) had me over the moon! An awesome recipe, big enough to serve a small group, that cost next to nothing…I will be talking this one up for a while!

The Cuban Grilled Cheese

The Cuban Grilled Cheese | bsinthekitchen.com #grilledcheese #sandwich #bsinthekitchen

I believe this sandwich could be a turning point in my life, marking the start of an exciting new relationship with mustard and pickles. I have never been a huge fan of mustard, and hesitated to put a bunch on this sandwich, but I did it anyways, and am sure glad I did! The mix of mustard and pickle, with the Swiss cheese, and all the hearty meat was so great!

I know this recipe isn’t much different than an actual Cuban sandwich, so to rocket it into grilled cheese territory I loaded it up with Swiss cheese! Cheese on the bottom, cheese in the middle and cheese on top! Gluing all those wonderful ingredients together into a beautiful, beeautiful sandwich! Praise Cuba!!

It’s hard to believe we are already on week eight of the Julia Child celebration. This week’s French cooking assignment was a roasted chicken.

This chicken was moist, full of flavour and easy to make! Let’s get to the recipe so you can start cooking it too! Continue reading

Barbecued Elk Roast

Barbecued Elk Roast | bsinthekitchen.com

It’s about time for some DS In The kitchen, that’s right, Dad and Son! Oh what a combo we make!

We had Dave on the Elk Roast and myself adding some input on the seasoning and taking care of the potatoes. First off we seasoned the elk roast with some Cavendar’s Greek Spice and browned the outside in a pan with some olive oil. Once this was done we poked a hole in the middle of the elk roast so we could secure it on the meat holder (whatever it’s called??). Since we had to put a hole in the center of the roast, I figured we might as well stuff it with some flavouring right? So, on we went putting lots of garlic cloves and greek spice into the center of the roast.

Yum.

Roasted Corn & Chicken Grilled Wrap

Roasted Corn & Chicken Grilled Wrap | bsinthekitchen.com

Due to the large amounts of rain we are receiving in Saskatoon I was able to take the day off from work and felt that I needed to make something cooking blog worthy for lunch since I had the time. I hadn’t made a grilled wrap for quite some time but there were plenty of good leftovers in the fridge that would work well in a grilled wrap, so it was the perfect opportunity.
