In the spirit of the upcoming Super Bowl, I present to you… Pacific Rim Chicken Meatballs. A new recipe has been a long time coming, and this one is worth the wait.
It seems like forever since I have been in my kitchen or behind my camera. Let’s say that the Holiday season was not so jolly at our house. Sinus infection, stomach flu (Christmas Day), abscessed tooth, root canal. UGH!!
But, it’s a New Year, and I’m back to doing what I love, creating recipes and photos for the blog. While I was recovering from all that ailed me, I was able to do some research. It seems that 2019 will be the year for Pacific Rim food. Researching trends is a part of keeping things fresh in my world.Continue reading “Pacific Rim Chicken Meatballs”
By Sunday we will all be screaming NO MORE TURKEY!!! How about Grilled Sriracha Sloppy Joe’s ?
Don’t get me wrong, I love turkey, but after a few days of anything left over…..I am done! I want something the polar opposite of what ever that left over was.Grilled Sriracha Sloppy Joe’s are just that!
For some crazy reason I have been craving a Sloppy Joe. I haven’t had one in years. We used to have them all the time when I was a kid.
I seem to remember a recipe that called for a can of soup, but for the life of me I can’t remember what the soup was, but it was one of those recipes that women passed around until everyone had it.
You know on the recipe cards that all women……of a certain age will remember…..from the kitchen of……..’sigh’ but that was before the digital revolution!
As you who are familiar with my blog know, Tim likes things spicy and he thinks Sriracha is ketchup. Well ketchup goes in Sloppy Joe’s …so why not srirachia?
The recipe is a basic Sloppy Joe recipe with ketchup, onion, green pepper, and brown sugar.
I added a touch of sriracha, a little soy and teriyaki, garlic, and rice wine vinegar. The combo was awesome!!!
A little spicy, a little sweet , and a little asian.Grilled Sriracha Sloppy Joe’s.
Normally a nice bun is what you want, but I wanted to grill mine and needed a bread to withstand the grilling pressure…..enter the ciabatta loaf. Ok, so it seems to be my bread of choice for a lot of sandwiches.
But it’s perfect to grill and toast. Crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside. I sliced the loaf in half lengthwise, then cut it into four sandwiches. I scopped out a little of the inside of the bottom halves to make a little well for the Grilled Sriracha Sloppy Joe’s mix.
Back in the day a slice of single wrapped cheese would have went on top, but I picked cheddar for more flavor. Besides, I am not sure those wrapped slices are real cheese????
Once assembled I grilled those babies up………Tim and I both thought they were the best Sloppy Joe’s we had ever tasted.
So now that you are over the turkey, try the Grilled Sriracha Sloppy Joe’s !!
