Rotten Beef….What's Eating You?

  • Mar 13

    The Strawberry Festival is in town and oh boy is it always a barrel of fun! It’s hard to decide what the bigger draw is. The rides, the exhibits or the food!

    This trip out I noticed so many more things that were deep fried. The standard deep fried ice cream, deep fried pickles, deep fried Oreos and Snickers and a couple different things this year. Deep fried Coke, Deep fried Butter (yes BUTTER) and the one I was just chomping at the bit to get, the Krispy Kreme Donut Burger.

    This baby was a pure beef patty fried just the way you like it, greasy and fatty, with all the fix-ins, sandwiched between to delicious Krispy Kreme Glazed Donuts! Mmmmmmm! Homer Simpson would be in heaven.

    Now I’m not one to turn down different types of cuisines, but after seeing all the delightful offerings at the fair this year, I am convinced that someone could (or soon will) sandwich or deep fry dog crap and market it, and it will become a fast food sensation. Just saying….

    I found Muddy Buddies Chex Mix in the store 2 days ago. I go back today to get more and the store manager says the manufacturer told them to send them back and take credit. Why is it when I like a product, it gets discontinued?

    It’s really a great feeling when you’ve never made something but when you do it ends up being sooo delicious. Which is the case with my latest dish, a Tourtiere.

    Now for folks who have never lived or been near the frozen North, this is a traditional dish originating from Quebec.

    A tourtière is a meat pie usually made with ground pork and beef or veal.

    This is a hearty dish most guys would love. It’s really good on those cold winter days. Aaaaah, memories.

    There is no right or wrong way to make a Tourtiere, but the basics should include the ground pork/meat. In Maine some even vary the filling with Lobster, Yummy!

    If you’re interested in the recipe check it out here and feel free to let me know how your’s came out.
