Recipe: Cafe Rio Pork Salad

Recipe: Cafe Rio Pork Salad

To build your salad, you start with a flour tortilla, add a smidge handful of cheese, a spoonful or two of black beans, a spoonful or two of rice, as much pork as you think you can get away with, pile on shredded romaine lettuce, a couple of spoonfuls of pico, some guacamole if you have it, the tomatillo dressing and then homemade tortilla strips Total Prep-time: 18 hours, technically. But most of that is just waiting for the pork to cook. I’d say active cook time for the entire meal was perhaps an hour, maybe 1 hour 15 mins. Lots of this meal (dressing, pico) can be made before-hand and kept in the fridge until it’s time to eat. Café Rio Salad Ingredients Tortilla – you can make your own, mine came from a package. Cheese – it is a good idea to warm on the tortilla so the cheese is a little melty. Beans – black or pinto (mine came straight out of the can, warmed in the microwave with a little garlic powder and green Tabasco sauce). Rice – don’t be stingy... Read the rest of this article »

Recipe: Chicken Tikka Masala

Recipe: Chicken Tikka Masala

“Tikka” means pieces and “Masala” means both spice and spices. When wet ingredients are added to a spice mixture, such as yogurt or water, it’s called a “wet” masala. As you can see from the ingredient list below, making Indian Curry is a bit complex. For this reason, I like to use a sauce starter, my favorite being the Patak’s Cooking Sauce brand. You can usually find an Indian cooking sauce in the ethic food section of the grocery story and they’re very common at specialty stores. You can also order it online, but the shipping charges make it a bit expensive.  But The Easy Method Ingredients 1 cup plain yogurt 2 chicken breasts, skinless, cut into 1″ chunks 15 oz Indian Cooking Sauce 1 can diced tomatoes or two fresh diced tomatoes 1 medium onion diced 2 tbsps olive oil 1 can coconut milk (optional for richer Korma taste) Instructions Marinate the chicken breasts in yogurt and cook in oven until tender Heat stovetop to... Read the rest of this article »
