Guacamole


Ingredients

2 ea avocados

1 C pico de gallo, measured with a slotted to spoon to remove liquid (reserve liquid)


Procedure

  1. With large chef’s knife, not a paring knife, cut avocado along prime meridian. Follow the pit around the entire avocado, careful not to cut through the pit or your hand. Separate the halves laying them on the cutting board cut side up. Using your chef’s knife, whack the pit with the sharp edge of the knife, pick it up and twist the knife with pit to remove and discard.

  2. Now switch to a butter knife so you don’t accidentally cut through the avocado skin into your hand. Score the avocado into small ¼ inch squares

  3. With a large spoon, scoop out avocado flesh into medium sized mixing bowl. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt.

  4. Repeat with second avocado

#7 PULP TACOS

IMG_0096.JPG

Tacos

* This recipe is for the grill. I recommend charcoal but if you have gas that’s ok.

* I highly recommend getting a charcoal chimney to start your coals, It will make your life way less stressful.

Ingredients

Oil of choice

Salt

Cracked black pepper

Your favorite Pulp chili powder, add either before or after grilled

4 ea Chicken thighs from @SpringerMountainFarms, deboned

And/ Or

1 ea(2 if you are really hungry) Flat Iron Steak from @pinestreetmarket

8 ea Siete tortillas, cassava, coconut and flax or almond

Toppings

Your favorite Pulp Hot Sauce

½ ea White onions

½ C Cilantro

1 ea lime, cut into 8ths

*feel free to use our queso recipe to top your tacos

*or our pico de gallo recipe

*or our guacamole recipe

*or our salsa verde recipe

Procedure

  1. You want to marinate or season your meats for at least an hour before grilling at room temperature. If you marinate overnight pull meats out about an hour before you grill.

  2. Use oil to cover meats well. Season with salt pepper and Pulp chili powder liberally. Follow the above guideline and allow your meat to marinate

  3. While meat is marinating, prepare your coals. I prefer the Alton Brown method of using a small amount of newspaper, or a brown paper sack from the grocery store, drizzle a little vegetable oil on it and wad it up loosely and place in the lower cavity of the chimney. The oil helps the paper burn slower using less paper but still lighting the lower coals

  4. Grilling tip, when you first place meat on grill, don’t touch it for at least 4-5 minutes. Longer if you have the nerve. Just leave it alone. As long as your coals are ready and not too blazing hot your meat is fine. You are developing a nice crust and actually helping the meat to release from the grate easier

  5. When meat is fully cooked, remove from grill and bring into the kitchen. Let it rest for at least 6-8-10 minutes before cutting. Give it time to relax and let all of the juices return to their places. If you cut it too early the juices will all run out

  6. While meat is resting, place tortillas on grill for a few seconds to warm through, dont burn, just add a little color

  7. Chop chicken into small bite sized pieces. Slice the beef against the grain into long thin strips for easy biting

  8. Place meat on tortillas and top tacos with your favorite toppings and enjoy!


#8 GRILLING TIPS

IMG_0097.JPG

Grilling tips

  1. Fill top cavity with charcoal and light the oil soaked paper. It should take about 45 minutes - an hour for the coals to be white and ready for grilling

  2. During this time, prepare your toppings. If you are using siete tortillas, remove them from the freezer to thaw

  3. When coals are done, you have a couple different schools of thought here, you can either spread the coals evenly on the lower grate for even cooking or you can pile them on one side so you can get direct and indirect heat from your grill. Choose what works best for you

  4. Use and old towel or even a paper towel to apply a layer of oil to grill grate to help prevent meat from sticking

  5. Place meat on grill and cook to desired doneness

COOKING BEANS

IMG_0198.JPG

Cooking beans


*Precooking your beans for the Pulp chili recipe will ensure perfect cooking of the beans and we are making a meat stew here not bean soup. Precooking your beans will allow you to get rid of the starchy bean liquid so your stew isn’t overly starchy and cloudy. This will allow the rest of your ingredients to shine.


*Soaking beans overnight is always a good idea although not necessary. It reduces cooking time considerably, saves energy and makes your life much easier.


* If soaking, make sure you add enough water. At least 4 times the amount of the beans. Waking up to dry, bloated beans in no good. Drain before cooking


*Don’t add salt to beans until they are finished cooking. Salt greatly inhibits the cooking of beans


Unsoaked cooking method

  1. Measure out beans and add to appropriate sized pot

  2. Add cold water, if you are using the liquid then add two knuckles worth above the beans. If you are discarding the liquid then add three knuckles worth of water above the beans

  3. Add pot to burner and turn heat to low. You don’t want to boil the beans, but one bubble here and there. Leave uncovered

  4. Beans should take roughly 1.5- 2 hrs to cook

  5. After 1.5 hrs, use a slotted spoon or fork to bring a couple beans to the surface. Blow on them to cool them down. Taste them to see if they are done. If not, check them again after another half hour. Then another and another and so on…

  6. When beans are finished take them to the sink and pour them into a mesh strainer. Unless you are reserving the liquid then save it.

  7. Congratulations, you just made some delicious and nutritious beans. Apply this method to all beans for all occasions


#12 MEATBALL SUB

IMG_0298.JPG

Meatball Subs

*This is the last recipe in the Game Day series for this football season

Meatball ingredients

2# Pine Street Market Butcher Burger

¼ C Pulp Fresno Chili Powder, or your favorite powder

Salt and pepper to taste

4 ea @tgmbread hoagie loaves

Pizza sauce (refer to mini calzone recipe, sub Pomi Chopped tomatoes for strained tomatoes. Substitute rosemary for basil)

Fresh Mozzarella, sliced thin

Fresh grated parmesan

Pulp Fresno Chili sauce to taste


Procedure

  1. Preheat oven to 400*

  2. In large mixing bowl, place butcher burger, salt, pepper and Pulp powder. Mix well by hand

  3. You should get 16, 2 oz meatballs. Feel free to make 1 oz half moons to save yourself from cutting the meatballs in half later

  4. Place meatballs in medium cast iron pan and bake until done. Roughly 10-15 minutes. When finished, switch oven over to broil

  5. Prepare pizza sauce while meatballs are cooking and cooling

  6. Cut hoagie rolls with serrated knife. Make a pocket down the middle careful not to cut through

  7. When meatballs are thoroughly cooked, take out of cast iron and set aside to cool to the touch. Feel free to cut them in half for easier reheating and biting… OR...

  8. Add pizza sauce to non stick pan. Place on burner at medium to low heat. Remember “nothing splashes like tomato sauce.” When sauce starts to steam or bubble, add meatballs to pan and simmer for 10-20 minutes, rolling them around in the sauce every so often to keep them moist, to warm them through and to let them cook into the sauce and vice versa

  9. If you chose not to simmer the meatballs, then add a little sauce to the bun first, then add the meatball and add more sauce to make sure your sandwich is moist enough. Other wise, When finished simmering, add 4 meatballs to hoagie bun, top with a couple scoops of sauce

  10. Top with mozzarella and parmesan. Place under broiler to melt cheese and enjoy! Best served with potato chips
