Oh Yes! Anyone can play!

Rules are simple and few - just make something during the challenge week, featuring the challenge ingredient (this week any smoked pork product).

When you're finished, post your results. Recipe & pictures are both welcome.

That was easy!

Emeril's Red Beans and Rice, with Luckytrim's Collard Greens

This dinner had THREE smoked pork products! LOL!

I have made Frugal Gourmet's Red Beans and Rice several times, but decided to go with Emeril's recipe from "Louisiana Real and Rustic".

http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/...ns-style-red-beans-and-rice-recipe/index.html

I had a length of andouille and used the whole thing, along with a one-pound ham steak. I cut WAY back on the cayenne, since the sausage was so spicy. The mixture turned out creamy and perfect!

Served with Luckytrim's WONDERFUL collard greens, cooked with a package of smoked pork neck bones instead of a hock.

A hearty winter meal! I made enough to give some to a neighbor whose husband is ill, froze some, and have 2 lunches of leftovers!

Finally getting back into the grove.
I finally did something "Pig" last night.
Stuffed pork tenderloin with spinach, mushrooms onion garlic ricotta cheese. It turned out really well. The cauliflower wasn't very good. I had a the brainwave to put blue cheese in the cheddar cheese sauce. They do not compliment each other.

Wow, Lethal, how did you get the meat so thin? Did you cut it that way yourself?

Yes cut and then beat it with a hammer!
I cut and rolled it out as thin as I could, then a used my meat tenderizer to pound it out thinner.
Then I placed it on plastic wrap, put the filling in and then rolled it up like a Cheech and Chong joint! :punk:
