Looking for that last minute gift for a foodie friend of yours? Why not stuff their stockings full of bacon and them a Fidel Gastro meat sweats this holiday season.
Who wants another Bed Bath and Beyond gift certificate? Not me. We’re all about being different here at FG. Being on the road showed me that you cant just do things the same old way anymore. Take for instance the ever enjoyable game of “Mother effin bingo” I played late on a Monday night in Austin Texas. So returning home for the holidays meant offering some unique market goodies that would get people’s attention just like the mother effin bingo did for me. So Ky and I put together our Meat Sweat baskets consisting of a smoked bacon explosion, half rack of smoked ribs, smoked lamb shank, bacon jam, XXX hot sauce, regular hot sauce and some smoked apple BBQ sauce. We also can make fully customized gift baskets just to your liking. Available in our market at Lisa Marie with a side of gift certificate if you so choose and some ole!!
Being on the road shooting Rebel Without A Kitchen season 2 has given me an opportunity to eat, talk, watch and become obsessed with how and what other cities are doing with their street food. Philly, Miami, New Orleans and the great state of Texas have been my temporary new homes. I’m in each city for such a short amount of time though so I need to be stomach space diligent and only be on the lookout for just a few standout flavours or concepts. Well after 16lbs gained, pints and pints pf craft beer and a bunch of scribbly notes later we have a new menu at Lisa Marie.
The Creole Poutine-
Despite not being a legitimate poutine, it does have all the usual suspects. A sauce, a potato, and a cheese. But in this case the potato is tempura fried sweet potato coins, the sauce is a classic New Orleans trinity sauce and the cheese … a lil’ grated parmigiano. Oh and some prawns with brown butter and more garlic. I learned the fundamentals of this dish on the NOLA truck in New Orleans. For me the sauce and the prawns are what make this dish. Mainly because you can stuff the prawns with sauce, brown butter and garlic and suck it all out with ease.
The Moroccan Beef Rib-
Inspired by a two sides of Texas: the massive world of BBQ and the unique flavours of their emerging Moroccan street food culture. Take one full short-rib and cover it in intense spices like cumin and cinnamon, slow roasted for 6 hours and then cooked for another hour in a special dark sauce consisting mainly of dark beer, ginger and molasses. The crushed pistachios and fresh lime are meant to bring all the saucy and fatty flavours together. It’s a scene right out of The Flinstones.
La Barbeque – Austin, Texas
The Korean Fritas-
Miami street food and Cuban food go hand in hand. The traditional Cuban fritas is basically a Cuban hamburger with spiced beef, rujo ketchup and potato chips. The principles of the fritas are to have a crunch, some spice, a cooling factor, something saucy etc. Essentially cover the full spectrum of flavours. I thought by adding a few Korean influences like kimchi pickles and fried leeks I would easily be able to add even more complex layers to the tiny little burger. Despite being the last edition to the menu (to the point that I hadn’t even made one fully until after I picked up the menus from the printer) it’s quickly becoming my staff’s favourite of the new editions.
Fritas at El Mago Del Fristas
Sometimes I’m so focused on meat that I tend to forget to have some fun with vegetarian dishes. I think the eggplant meatball might be in that fun range. Its basically a deep fried meatball, but instead of meat we use eggplant and goat’s cheese. Treat the veg like it’s meat and all of a sudden, it has a little more UMPF! It’s served with a side of jalapeno mint sauce. I learned how to make this sauce at a rodeo in Victoria Texas over a an open fire and a few beers. The cowboy BBQ’er who taught me how to make the sauce talked about how well it worked on different animals. When I told him I was using it on a vegetarian item… I got the look.
Bulgogi Ravioli – Another great addition to the LM menu
