Sweet Chili Glaze

31 Jul

A quick and easy glaze that is sweet and spicy.  Great for pork, but even better dabbed on the top of some ice cream.

Ingredients:

4 tsp oil

4 tsp chili powder

1/2 cup frozen pineapple juice concentrate, thawed

Heat the oil in a saucepan, mix in the chili powder and keep stirring until it is well mixed and starts to sizzle.  Add the pineapple concentrate.  Cook it down until it is nice and thick.  It should yield about 4 tbs.  You can let it cool slightly but will want to smear it on your meat before it cools completely as it gets really thick when it cools and is harder to spread.  The original recipe I started with called for a tsp of cumin as well.  The chili powder I use has plenty of cumin in it already so I just leave that out.  It’s not as good on the ice cream with an overpowering cumin flavor.

Spicy Tri-Tip and some grilled onions

31 Jul

We grill tri-tip pretty regular so I am always looking for new recipes to keep it interesting.  Luckily that’s pretty easy these days with all the recipes to be found on the web.  Last night I found a couple good ones.  In order to give credit where it is due, and because I’m lazy and it’s easier than typing out the recipes, here are the links.

Spicy Tri-tip

Grilled Onions

I rarely use a recipe without changing it a little to suit my taste.  In this case in spite of being called “spicy” the tri-tip looked pretty tame to me so I doubled the red pepper and it came out pretty good.  For the onion, I used beef bullion instead of chicken and it was great.  The next time I make it I’ll add some cheese to the stuffing and drop it on a piece of Texas toast to serve.
