Schinkenspeck is bacon on steroids. It is pork that is cured and double smoked. This beautiful piece was found at Dittmers Wurst Haus a German butcher house extraordinaire. Sckinkenspeck is fully cooked and just needs to be warmed. It can add tons of flavor to many dishes. This weeknight we just threw some ingredients together and had flavorful success.
Fresh English shelling peas were found at Monterey market. These peas are a treat with their sweet pop of flavor. Mushrooms, olive oil, and garlic were quickly stirred in a hot pan. The peas and schinkenspeck were added to warm through. A splash of salt & pepper seasoned our saute pan of schinkenspeck love.. This was all tossed with pasta and parmesean cheese. Dinner is served
This was a quick and easy meal. Schinkespeck is the hero of our meal. How can one have so much fun in the kitchen?
