Football… Food… and Sunday

Sunday is a day of relaxation, football, and eating food; nothing more nothing less. When you think of watching your favorite team winning on Sunday what foods do you think of? wings? pizza? chips & dip? ants on a log? Pretty much anything that goes well with beer right? And who in the hell would eat a stick of celery smothered in peanut butter with raisins thrown on it? Well I guess I would if someone else made them and put them in front of my face. Has anyone ever had a veggie friendly Sunday? Yeah I doubt that anyone who eats meat, fish chicken would opt for a veggie friendly Sunday…we NEED some damn Protein!!!(but I’ve been wrong before) Shit, I would enjoy a Green Bay Packers win with a stick of Pepperoni and a pound of pepper jack cheese. But that’s me. I am going to give you “Tony’s Top Two” things to shove onto your mouth on Sundays.

2. Bulgogi Glazed Smoked Baby Back Ribs

Bulgogi is a Korean style bbq sauce or marinade. A basic Bulgogi sauce or marinade consists of three major ingredients. Soy, Brown Sugar and Onions. It is extremely easy to make and beats the hell out of doing the same shit using sweet baby rays and A1 sauce. Variety is a must! Can’t keep doing the same thing over and over again…gets boring as hell. So try out this recipe and leave a comment. BULGOGI RECIPE

4 cups soy sauce, 3 cups brown sugar, 2 tablespoons minced ginger, 2 tablespoons minced garlic, 2 jalapenos (sliced) 5 green onions,(scallions) and a pinch of black pepper.

Put onions, ginger and garlic in a pot with a few tablespoons of oil and cook aromats to loosen up a bit. Once aromats are soft add the sliced jalapenos, soy sauce and brown sugar. bring up to boil. take off heat and blend all ingredients in blender. Transfer to container and put in ice bath to cool. Very simple and delicious sauce that goes perfect with many cuts of meat. Enjoy!

1. Scorpion Pepper Chicken Wings Red Curry Buttermilk Vinaigrette

Before I get into this dish I would like to say that the scorpion pepper is one of the hottest peppers in the world so if you don’t like hot foods these wings are not for you!! Shit’s Hot!

RECIPE

12 Chicken Wings, 1 quart of Buttermilk, 5 Scorpion peppers

Blend the peppers in the buttermilk until the peppers are completely broken up. Put wings into a container with a lid, pour the buttermilk pepper liquid over the wings cover and let marinate in refrigerator for at least 24 hours. When ready to cook wings get a bowl with seasoned flour (salt and pepper) and set your fryer to 300 degrees. Why 300 degrees? good question, a lot of store bought wings are bigger than the wings you order at a restaurant and we don’t want to under cook them so we fry them at 300 so they get completely cooked in the middle. because under cooked chicken sucks… and we could die, which isn’t fun. Toss the wings in the seasoned flour, make sure the whole wing is covered in the flour. Once wings start floating to the top they are done. take out and put on paper towel to let the oil drain off. While oil is draining off wing turn your fryer up to 350 degrees this is to get that great crunchy skin of the wing. Once your oil is up to temperature you only have to fry them for 2 minutes until you get that GBD ( Golden Brown Delicious) wing.

Hope you enjoy

Till next time
