Savory Stew

Savory Stew

When the days begin to shorten, the weather gets cold and it starts to feel like winter, it's time to  start making savory stews. Nothing beats a delicious warm stew on a cold, dark, winter night. Every family has their favorite stew, this stew is one of the very best.

This Mexican stew is made with pork shoulder and hominy, and has amazing flavors.

You will need:
1 large pork shoulder
3 cans hominy
1 medium to large onion, diced
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
5-6 tablespoons red chili powder

Start by cubing the pork shoulder into approximately 1-inch cubes. Put the cubes into a large pot and completely cover with water. You should probably use approximately 2 quarts of water to cook the pork cubes. Cook the pork for about 2 hours, until the pork is tender.

Cool the pork in the water and pot in the refrigerator overnight. This step is optional, but as pork shoulder is extremely fatty, cooling the pork overnight will cause the fat to congeal on top of the water. The next day, you can remove the congealed fat from the top of the stewed pork.

Put the pot with the pork and stewing water back on the stove after you have removed the fat. Next dice the onion and chop the garlic cloves. Sauté the onion and garlic, then add to the pork and begin to heat the stew over medium-high heat. Add the three cans of hominy, including the water to the stew. Finally, add the chili powder and stir well to mix in.

Heat the stew for 1 to 2 hours until the flavors are mixed and the stew is hot. Serve with homemade cornbread or biscuits.

Breakfast for Dinner

Breakfast for Dinner

One of my very favorite meals is breakfast for dinner. There is nothing that can beat a waffle, or omelette or stack of pancakes. If you want to make your own breakfast for dinner here are a few recipes to help you get started.

Buttermilk Waffles
2 eggs, separated into whites and yolks
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups buttermilk
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons melted butter

Sift together the dry ingredients, flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Beat the egg yolks until light. Add the buttermilk and melted butter to the egg yolks. Combine the liquid and dry ingredients. Beat the egg whites until light and fluffy, but not dry. Carefully fold the beaten egg whites into the batter. Pour the batter into a pitcher and heat the waffle iron until the indicator light shows that its ready. Pour the batter over the center of the waffle iron until it is about two-thirds covered. Close the lid and cook for about four minutes. Your waffle will be ready when steam stops coming out of the iron, and there shouldn't be too much resistance from the waffle iron. Allow the waffles to cool for a bit, so the waffles become a bit more crisp. Serve with butter and hot maple syrup.

You can make an omelette with just about anything you want. You can use red peppers, onions, cheese, ham, bacon, mushrooms, tomatoes and much more. Chop up all of the ingredients you might want. You should start by sauteeing the vegetables, they will have much better flavor if you do. Each omelette should be 2 to 3 eggs. Beat the eggs for each omelette. Heat the skillet, and melt butter, add olive oil or spay with cooking spray. You will want to be sure that your skillet is well greased so the omelette won't stick. When the skillet is warm, pour the beaten eggs into the skillet, and turn the heat down to medium-high heat. Pour the remaining ingredients into half of the eggs. When the bottom of the omelette is solidified, fold over the other half and continue to cook until the bottom begins to brown. You will need to flip the omelette over to cook the second half. You can flip using a quick flick of the wrist, or you can use the more simple method of flipping with a spatula. Finish cooking and serve hot.
