Posts tagged: beefDelicious and tender smoked brisket is a hard thing to come by when you don’t have hours to tend to a smoker. Nothing beats the smoke-filled flavor you get in every bite, so tender and comforting you feel like you could just melt away. I am thrilled to bring you my favorite, unbelievably simple and ridiculously tasty, slow cooker brisket. You might not be smoking it over wood chips all day, but you’ll still taste that smoke flavor. There’s nothing like a Guinness stew on a cold day. Unfortunately a traditional Guinness stew can take a bit of time, which I rarely have on weeknights, especially after battling traffic in snow during rush hour. With this recipe in less than 30 minutes, you’ll have a delicious stew that will warm you up inside and out! Corned beef and cabbage is a staple for us on St. Patrick's Day. No matter what, we always either make it or go out to eat it on St. Patrick's Day. It's become a great tradition, but this year I wasn't getting too excited about whipping out the same recipe for another year. This is exactly why I want to change things up this year and make something fun and playful! It’s a fact that you can wrap anything in bacon and it instantly becomes better. This bacon wrapped meatloaf is living proof of this fact. Just look at this meaty, bacon-wrapped, mouthwatering meal…

I always get into snacking whenever fall kicks in. I don't know if it's the cooler temperatures, the football, or the new batch of exciting flavors and recipes, but something comes over me and I turn into a grazer. This Quick & Easy Beef Jerky Chex Mix is one of my new favorite snacks to whip up any given day so I can keep up with my grazing habits all week long.
This whole snack mix requires such little effort! All you do is mix it all up and bake for a little over an hour. You'll just have to find a way to distract yourself while it bakes... Trust me when I say all you'll wanna do is reach in and snag a couple pieces every few minutes because the smell of this chex mix is way too intoxicating. You get the best of all worlds in each handful! This snack mix is a little sweet, a little spicy, and packed with our favorite Pig of the Month BBQ beef jerky. There's tons of variety to keep every taste bud in your mouth jumping for joy.
Pack a small bag to take with you to work, or set out the whole thing right before the big game kicks off this weekend. It'll all be gone before you know it!

Ready to drop a bomb on that epic tailgating game this season? BOOM. These Brisket Bombs are here to do all the heavy lifting for ya.
Stuffed with Pig of the Month's INSANE brisket and all the cheddar cheese, these brisket bombs are the best football food you could ever ask for. It's got the carbs and the protein to load you up and balance out the booze, not to mention a ton of gooey cheese. Really, what is a football game without excessive amounts of cheese anyways?
It's a pretty boring event, that's what. You gotta get that cheese, meat and bread in while you tailgate for the big game this season! I mean, if you can't indulge before and during a football game, what the hell is the point of all the delicious, extravagant, decadent food out there in the world? I know that's a wee bit dramatic, but that's how freaking amazing these brisket bombs. They come together in about 15 minutes and they'll have everyone begging for more.
Don't believe me? I dare you to try these out for the next big game and prove me wrong...
INSTRUCTIONS: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line two baking sheets with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Separate biscuits. Flatten out each biscuit slightly and place 1 to 2 cubes of cheese in the center. Top with chopped biscuit and wrap the biscuit around the filling. Pinch the seams tightly and place seam-side down on the lined baking sheets. In a small bowl, combine melted butter, garlic powder and onion powder. Brush the tops of the biscuits with the seasoned butter. Bake 10 minutes. Remove from oven and brush the tops of the biscuits again with the seasoned butter. Serve with BBQ sauce.

You know when you have leftovers hanging around and you have ZERO idea what to do with them? My refrigerator is usually a mash up of random BBQ leftovers, some pasta and whatever else I happen to have leftover from last night's BBQ party. There's a limit to how many times you can eat the same dish the same way. I mean, I love my brisket, but after a couple of nights of just brisket and a side salad, I'm getting bored.
I also happen to be lazy and have no desire to actually get too terribly creative unless I know it'll take me zero extra effort. Enter these little brisket mac n cheese sliders... Brisket Mac N Cheese Sliders are the new appetizer that you have absolutely no excuse not to make. Seriously, how easy are these little guys? You just throw some leftovers on a toasted bun and BAM, you have a completely new way to eat that brisket and mac n cheese that have been taking up valuable real estate in your refrigerator.
Plus, how fancy you get with this recipe is completely up to you. You can make your own smoked brisket or you can head over to Pig of the Month's shop to snag some of their oh-so tender brisket. For the mac n cheese, you can simply make these sliders with store-bought mac and cheese, or you can bust out grandma's favorite recipe to go the extra mile. Regardless, these sliders are just the right balance of meat and cheese to hit the spot with every bite. There's no going back once you've eaten these sliders, so get prepared to start craving mac n cheese on your sandwiches from here on out. Don't say I didn't warn you...
