Jameson Mustard Glazed Cast Iron Pork Chops

Published

Jump to Recipe

With St. Patrick's Day around the corner I figured what better way to get ready than with Jameson Mustard Glazed Cast Iron Pork Chops. Tender center cut pork chops pan seared in cast iron then smothered in with Irish whisky glaze.

Cast Iron Pork Chops

I firmly believe that everyone should own at least one cast iron skillet. It doesn’t matter whether you have your grandmother’s set passed down from the Great Depression or a brand new Pre seasoned Lodge Cast Iron skillet. As long as you have a pan that is well seasoned you will be guaranteed a beautiful sear on whatever you’re cooking. Great for casseroles as well searing steaks and if you take care of it you’ll have it forever.

For this recipe I used some beautiful thick center cut bone in pork chops.  You could also use pork tenderloin or boneless pork chops as well. If you’re not a fan of pork you could even make this recipe with chicken thighs or breast. The key to a tasty meal is getting that well developed crust on whatever meat you choose to sear. Once the meat hits the pan leave it alone for at least 90 seconds. Let that crust setup before you flip the chops. You will see the edges of the chop begin to change color and it will tell you when it’s time to flip.

Using Potato Starch to sear the Pork Chops.

Potato Starch is a great gluten free alternative to using all purpose flour or cornstarch. It gives you a very light yet crispy coating that is great for absorbing the sauce or glaze later. I figured since we were creating an Irish themed dish it only made sense to incorporate potato somewhere in the recipe. To make this recipe keto friendly you can omit the potato starch or substitute unflavored whey protein powder to get a great crust.

Jameson Mustard Glaze with your cast iron Pork Chops

I love incorporating whiskey into sauces whenever possible. It really adds a depth of flavor with caramelized notes of vanilla and oak. Always be careful when adding any alcohol to a saucepan when working with an open flame. Either remove the pan from the heat or turn the burner off when pouring in the whiskey. You will see a flame as the alcohol burns off and you always need to pay attention to the pan while cooking with an open flame. 

Using a good quality whole grain mustard with your cast iron pork chops adds texture to the sauce and also helps with the viscosity. I often like to combine mustard with horseradish as I feel they compliment each other perfectly. After the sauce has reduced you may notice that it’s too thick. Simply add a few tablespoons of water or chicken stock to reach the desired consistency. If you want to bulk up this dish some sautéed mushrooms and onions are a delicious addition to the recipe.

What’s a good side dish with pork chops??

Last St. Patrick’s day I made a really Tasty Cauliflower Colcannon that would be an outstanding side with this recipe. Other options that I think would pair well are some simple grilled Vidalia onions or maybe a cauliflower mushroom risotto. Mashed or baked potatoes are classic and always a favorite at my house as well. There’s no wrong answer, it all depends what you’re in the mood for and what you like. Cast Iron pork chops are a fantastic recipe that you can make even if its not St. Patrick's Day!

Japanese Grill night

Published

on

This cook was years in the making. Inspired by cooks from @CPARKTX2 and @The Cen-Tex Smoker many many moons ago, I've had yakitori and onigiri on my mind,  for far too long. So, I dusted off The Japanese Grill book, checked out some other recipes, and got to work.

Onigiri, with miso butter.

Chix thighs with scallions, glazed with the yakitori sauce from The Japanese Grill book. Drumsticks glazed with an orange, soy sauce, yuzu kosho sauce. 

Shisito peppers, cherry ‘maters.

Had a decent spread…  from bottom left – yakitori chix, ‘maters, orange-soy-yuzu legs, shisito pepepers, ‘shrooms with bacon.

All chased with a fair bit of sake :) What a great meal! Relatively simple cook (the prep takes a little time), and the payoff is yuge. Would have eaten a bit earlier if I had fired up another cooker or two, but… lazy.

Caliqueen agreed that we need to do this more often. But, that may have been the sake talking.

How to Cook Over a Campfire

Published

on

“To poke a wood fire is more solid enjoyment than almost anything else in the world.”

Charles Dudley Warner

19th Century American Writer

 

Feeding yourself and other people during an outdoor adventure can be one of the most gratifying experiences of your culinary life. Whether you’re a car or RV camper, backpacker, biker, boater, or weekend hiker, you can eat exceedingly well. Food always tastes better when cooked over a campfire and seasoned with the Great Outdoors!

However, cooking and/or grilling under primitive conditions can be stressful if you don’t have a plan.

For starters, learn how to light a fire with a minimum of tools. If you own a charcoal- or wood-burning grill, you can practice at home, igniting tinder and adding subsequently larger pieces of fuel. (Click here for more specific directions.) If you are one of those gifted people who can make fire using flint or a bow drill, I salute you. The rest of us must rely on less romantic methods, i.e., matches. (I prefer the long-handled wooden kind.)

An ideal cooking fire has burned down to glowing, white hot embers. Allow plenty of time for this to happen—at least an hour, or maybe two. Burn additional wood on one side of your fire so you can harvest fresh coals for cooking. Neutralize potentially “hangry” appetites by offering no-cook appetizers like an easy charcuterie platter or pre-packaged snacks in advance of the meal.

Equipment: What You’ll Need

Space, weight, and your method of transportation into the backwoods will determine what your batterie de cuisine will look like. At a minimum, you’ll need:

  • A source of flame, whether it be matches or a butane lighter (bring more than one, and make sure they have a full load of butane)
  • Grill gloves
  • At least one skillet or saucepan large enough to cook for your group. If weight isn’t a concern, a lidded Dutch oven can be an asset, especially if it’s accompanied by a tri-pod.
  • A grill grate, preferably one that is supported by legs, or one that can rest on top of stones or green logs. Alternatively, angle similarly-sized green logs around the coals; they act as an impromptu grate.
  • Long-handled tongs
  • A long-handled spoon or spatula
  • Heavy-duty foil
  • Skewers or green sticks carved to a point for grilling meat or kebabs
  • Headlamp for late evening/early morning cooking
  • Flexible plastic cutting boards to use as clean work surfaces or for slicing
  • Sharp knife, preferably one reserved for food preparation

How to Manage Your Fire

Most campfire cooking utilizes direct grilling, i.e., food is exposed directly to the heat. Think burgers, hot dogs, whole fish, or kebabs. You can, however, approximate indirect grilling by angling food toward the fire on sticks or stakes, a method long used by the indigenous people of the American Northwest to cook salmon or other fish, or by moving your food to a cooler part of the fire and covering it with foil or a deep pot lid. You can create a multi-tier fire in the wild just as you can at home by raking the coals to different depths. (Always cook over mature embers and avoid active flames.)

If using a grill grate, allow it to heat up before adding food, especially stick-prone food like fish. (We like to pack a leak-proof bottle of olive oil or other cooking oil.) Flames can be tamed by raking out the coals or topping them with a layer of ash or dirt. Conversely, fanning the coals will increase their heat.

What to Cook

For me, the penultimate backwoods meal is fresh line-caught trout dredged in cornmeal and cooked in a cast-iron skillet by the Gallatin River. But the trout don’t always cooperate. So it’s a good idea to have ingredients on hand for “Plan B.”

Here are several options, from appetizers to dessert. (Note: Do as much prep work as you can at home before heading into the wilderness.)

  • Toast slices of country-style bread, rub each with a raw clove of garlic, and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Sprinkle with dried Italian seasoning or grated aged cheese, such as Manchego or Parmigiano-Reggiano.
  • Plank-Smoked Camembert: This recipe, always a favorite, is easily adapted to a campfire. You could even cook it on a hot stone near the fire.

  • Grilled Sangria: You’ve heard of “glamping,” privileged camping? This libation will set the stage.

  • Grilled Eggs with Prosciutto and Parmesan: So satisfying, you’ll want to repair to your tent or RV for a snooze before pursuing the day’s adventures.

Grilled Eggs with Prosciutto and Parmesan

  • Top prepared pizza crusts or Boboli breads with your favorite toppings and warm over a campfire until the cheese melts.
  • Grilled Prosciutto-Wrapped Trout: Remember Steven’s first show, BBQ University? It was shot on the banks of a stream, where our cameramen fished for golden trout when they weren’t working. Steven spontaneously added trout wrapped with prosciutto to the day’s menu. Genius!
  • Spruce-Grilled Steaks: An unexpected seasoning flavors these wood-grilled steaks.

Spruce-Grilled Steak

  • Dessert Quesadillas: We love s’mores, of course, but like to mix it up sometimes. Prepare these delectable quesadillas directly on the grill grate or in a cast iron skillet.

For the Best July Yet, 8 Great Recipes for the Grill

Published

on

There’s no better month than July in North America to grill or smoke. With Independence Day entertaining now in the rear-view mirror, you can now focus on what you want to grill, whether it be a Beer Can Breakfast Burger for your fishing or camping buddies, fiery Nashville Hot Wings for a tailgate party, or Grilled Key Lime Mojitos and Jamaican Jerk Chicken for an authentic Caribbean blow-out. Make this a month to remember.

Beer-Can Breakfast Burgers
Savory pork, bacon, eggs, and cheese on an English muffin—this high-energy breakfast will fuel summer adventures for hours. They’ll be a hit in your back yard or at your campsite.

Double-Grilled Summer Vegetable Frittata
Perfect for a weekend brunch or a weeknight dinner, this frittata features an array of grilled fresh vegetables that can change depending on what’s in season. Add meat, if desired—ham, cooked bacon, or chorizo or other sausage.

Get The Recipe »

Nashville Hot Wings
Incendiary Nashville Hot Chicken “takes wing” in this live fire interpretation. The wings get a double blast of heat from hot red pepper flakes and a cayenne-inflected baste. Said to be invented by a woman eager to take revenge on her tomcatting partner, her plan to turn his favorite fried chicken into a fiery weapon failed when he unexpectedly loved the very spicy chicken.

Grilled Key Lime Mojitos
One theory about the origins of mojitos is that indigenous South American peoples made a medicinal concoction from limes, mint, and fermented sugar cane. Although a Havana bar disputes that. In any case, Steven’s version of a mojito, made with charred sugared limes, mint, rum, and club soda, will cure whatever ails you. Ernest Hemingway would approve.

Cherry-Smoked Strip Steak with Cutting Board Sauce
If mastering the reverse-sear method of cooking thicker slabs of meat is on your bucket list this month, start with this recipe. (If you’re unacquainted with the technique, it involves a low and slow smoke with wood chips or chunks followed by a quick sear.) New York chef Adam Perry Lang gets the credit for developing this easy complementary board sauce using chiles, herbs, and meat juices.

Jamaican Jerk Chicken
Were you aware that spicy foods actually help a body handle heat by causing it to perspire? Just look at the repertoire of hot foods in the world; they’re mostly from the steamier latitudes. Take Jamaican Jerk Chicken, for example. Steven’s version is super-authentic. Cooked over pimento wood (or alternatives), it’s a reason to party. Find pimento wood here.

Grilled Swordfish Steaks with Golden Raisin Chimichurri
Line-caught swordfish is a summer staple in the Raichlen household. Though often served with grill-blistered cherry tomatoes and a green salad, Steven likes to mix things up by serving this meaty fish with a jewel-like chimichurri and golden raisins. Dinner party worthy? Hell, yes.

Smoky Bourbon Peach Cobbler
This recipe, which came from our friend Russ Faulk, chief designer at Kalamazoo Gourmet, combines two Southern barbecue staples—fresh Georgia peaches and pecan wood. Ooops. Did we mention bourbon? Cooked in a cast iron skillet, it is a sublime example of cobbler and will wow summer guests. We’ve even been guilty of adding slivers of bacon to the filling. For more of Russ’s recipes, check out his book Food + Fire.
