I was so lucky to win to box full of wonderful Tex-Mex sauces and marinades from Wendy, The Weekend Gourmet. We used the Pecos 83 BBQ from Cookwell &Company. The marinade was so good, with a smoky flavor and a little bit of heat. See those grill marks? Perfect, even, if they are a little charred. We just coated the boneless chops in the marinade, put in a plastic bag, and refrigerated for a couple of hours. Scott always like the food to marinate for a couple of hours, so the marinade can penetrate the chops. Now that the weather is getting warmer for some people, get outside and grill. We do grill all year long! Thank you Mr. Weber!
We also grilled sweet potatoes, brushed with a little olive oil, and they are the best. The grill caramelizes the sweet potatoes into a yummy goodness. If you have never grilled sweet potatoes, run to the store and buy some. They have complex carbs, dietary fiber, beta carotene, and vitamins A, C, and B6, as well as calcium and iron. According to Wikipedia and the Center for Science in the Public Iinterest, sweet potatoes ranked highest in nutritional value of all vegetables. The best way to cook them to retain the most nutritional value is "health steaming" for 7 minutes. Who new the little orange or purple sweet potatoes pack a nutritional wallop? Sweet potatoes also have a lower GI index, good for diabetics. I new that they were good for you and better for you than white or red potatoes, but never realized all of the health benefits. Of cours, I like cinnamon on them:)
My family is having a belated birthday Tex-Mex Fiesta in a couple of weeks to use several of the other products that I won, stay tuned. Now, I was in Dallas many years ago, but that's the only place that I've been.in Texas. San Antonio and Austin here I come, someday!
