Tiny Deathstars of Foulness

Put one to two pounds of pork chops into a marinade that consists of 1 cup of oil, 2 cloves of garlic and a tablespoon of salt.  Marinade for 2 hours.  Put 1 can of Guinness into a baking dish.  Place your pork chops into the dish.  Bake at 350 for one hour (or until the internal temperature hits 160, whichever comes first).  Drain out the remaining Guinness and serve.

Here’s my recipe for brussels sprouts.  I know you don’t like them, but just try this before you write them off… First, soak your brussels sprouts in cold water for about an hour.  Then, cut them in half and pull off all those nasty dark leaves.  Next, saute up about 4 tablespoons of butter.  Toss the green meanies in there and saute on medium until you can just put a fork through them.  Important, don’t over cook these things.  Remove from heat and top them off with just a little brown sugar.  Serve hot.

First, place the mussels in a large bowl with cold water and cover. Then let them soak for about 20 minutes to remove any dirt or sand.  While you’re doing that, heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a pot over medium-low heat. Add 5 cloves of garlic, and saute for one minute, but do not let the garlic get brown. Next, add the 6 chopped roma tomatoes (and a little onion if desired) and cook it until it’s all almost tender. Then pour in two cups of white wine, and stir in some parsley and butter (optional). Bring the mixture to a boil, and allow to boil until the liquid has reduced by half, typically about 15 minutes.  Now you can add the mussels to the pot, cover and allow to cook on low until the shells are opened, about 10 minutes. Transfer the mussels and sauce to a large serving bowl, discarding any unopened shells.

Beets are usually just cooked wrong.  They’re typically these boiled nasty things.  Until my wife talked me into trying them at Lucia’s in Minneapolis I despised them.  I still don’t love them, but I do like them well enough to cook from time to time.  To cook them, take your beets and wash them off.  Cut off the stalks so you’re just left with the beets themselves.  Then take those and wrap them in foil, sprinkle a few tablespoons of oil in the foil and some balsamic vinegar.  Throw them into a 400 degree oven for about 60 minutes.  The smaller the beet the less time you can bake, but don’t go too short or they’ll be too hard to eat.  Once you pull them out, peel the skin off (obviously being careful not to burn yourself). They go great with Salmon, steak or sliced into quarters on a salad.
