Chilebrown at home

Sunday, May 11, 2008


Martin and I were hanging out at the Asparagus festival. He asked me if I had been using any of his recipes lately. I told him that I would break out one of my favorites from his book. He was pleased. "If Yan Can Cook, So can Chilebrown."

I used to make this dish a lot back in the day. It is one of my favorites. I have not made it in a while. Of course, I put my barbeque twist to it. We made a trip to the International Market in San Pablo. This is a great store to buy Meat and Fish on the cheap. They have a high turnover of merchandise. This makes for fresh Pork. We are heading to Alemany Market in San Francisco for our vegetables. Asparagus, Mushrooms and stuff were procured at the market. We did not see Chris from 'Zukerman Farms' today. We saw him a couple of weeks back and we are happy that he is well,

  1. 1/2 cup hoisin sauce and soy sauce

  2. 1 tablespoon sesame seed oil

  3. 1 tablespoon dry sherry

  4. 2 tablespoon kethcup

  5. 1/2 teaspoon of Chineese five spice

  6. 1 teaspoon of minced ginger

  7. 1 tablespoon of orange peel

  8. 3 pounds of pork

Cut pork into steaks and marinade with rest of the ingredients.. Cook in 350 oven for 30 minutes. I put it in the barbeque with an indirect heat for 30 minutes. Serve with Asparagus Chow Mein. Good Eats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Holy crap that looks good, and me without lunch today. Feh.

Hay, I think I may have kicked your ASS with meat on the cheap. Check your memory and see if you can beat the deal I get at my local El Salvadorean market. I've been buying a dozen, center cut pork chops, custom cut to 1" and walked out the door for under 12 bux.

They good too.

Damn, you're pushing the boundaries of how to use BBQ in the kitchen-I love it!
Every made smoked carnitas? I'd like to give that a try.

Why yes I have. Traditionally Carnitas are fried. I simmer them in a bath of Citrus,Cinnamon,Molasses,Onions,
Chipotle and water. I finish them off in a cast iron skillet in the barbeque. I will get to that post eventually.
I am supposed to get a delivery today from Nueske. I ordered a Ham and Bacon. They have a free shipping offer that I did not refuse.
