Potato Tart, Bacon Bacon Bacon

Potato Tart, Bacon Bacon Bacon, our thanks to Chef Michael Smith for this idea! It’s an awesome side dish, but would work well as a main dish. We used two whole pounds of fresh bacon combined with Ken’s smoked cheddar cheese, sliced potatoes, onions and garlic.

Raspberry Rack of Lamb

Raspberry Rack of Lamb is a little tart and a little sweet and a whole lot of tender and juicy. The only thing better than a rack of lamb from Raider Red Meats is two racks! Plus, it’s only three ingredients to enhance the one of a kind lamb flavor, with a “Kiss of Smoke”. I think this is the VERY BEST Lamb I have ever eaten and we have to do this again and again.

Bacony Sauteed Cabbage

Bacony Sauteed Cabbage, Patti made this as a side for our corned beef, but Ken loves it with anything and he’s not a cabbage sort of guy. It helped a lot that Patti added bacon and Cindy Lou's Big Kahuna Seasoning. Cabbage was a great price and we knew it would be fresh and top quality because we got it from the Murrieta Farmer’s Market.…

Sweet & Smoky Corned Beef

Sweet & Smoky Corned Beef, we’re invited to St. Patrick’s Day pot luck. Of course, when asked what we should bring our friends always utter those three little words “bring barbequed meat”. Patti wanted to try to just smoke the corned beef instead of grilling it, using different sorts of seasoning. It was lean, a little sweet, a little savory and a lot of delicious.…
