I draw the webcomic Manly Guys Doing Manly Things and work on cartoons you might see on TV sometimes.
do you have a recipe for this or was it just from scratch?
Just ad-libbed it based on bacon-bison-whiskey spaghetti sauce someone was talking about on Food Network Star or some show like that.
I started by shredding prosciutto and cutting strips of centre cut bacon into squares and fried them in a pan with Jim Beam, then when they started to cook I added a chopped white onion to the pan to cook in the bacon grease. When the onions started to get translucent I added some extra lean ground beef and let it brown in the pan with the onions, bacon, and prosciutto. In a measuring cup I mixed a can of tomato paste with water, salt, as much black pepper as I could grind before my hand got sore, cayenne pepper, garlic salt, onion powder, oregano, and more Jim beam, whisked it until it was smooth, and added it to the browned beef mixture. Then I added chopped green olives and green onion and I realized I should have cooked mushrooms with the onions, so I fried them in a separate pan with some more jim beam and added them when they started to get tender.
After that I just seasoned it to taste with more black pepper, cayenne pepper, and bourbon and let it simmer while I waited for the spaghetti to cook.
I used to really enjoy the taste of BBQ chips, even though to me, they never really tasted like BBQ’d anything… So you can imagine my excitement when I made a batch of these smoky BBQ kale chips and they turned out tasting just like BBQ chips! The best part is that they are entirely good for you, contain nothing artificial and boost your intake of dark leafy greens (which should make up the majority of you meals). Give it a go, they’re awesome!
Since I try my best to follow a pretty low-carb dairy-free protein-and-fiber-high diet these days, Brett’s mom just sent me a website full of grain, refined sugar, gluten and lactose free recipes. Paleo diet, Celiac, lactose intolerant, and in many cases vegetarian (or vegan if you use a honey substitute) friendly recipes for things like sandwich bread, jam, chocolate truffles, curries, tacos, ice cream, and more. It looks like the ingredients may be kind of hard to find (it replaces most grain flour with almond or coconut flour, for example), but if you live in a place where they’re available it gives you an alternative for those days you’re tired of steak and veggies, at least.
All gluten, dairy, grain, and refined sugar free!
