  • Print

Ingredients

    Shredded Pork

  • 10 lb Pork Butt
  • 1 cup minced garlic
  • 1 very large onion quartered
  • 1 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tbsp Jacobsen Ghost Chili Salt
  • Olive Oil

Directions

  1. Place the pork butt, garlic, onion, cumin, ghost chili salt and water in the slow cooker.
  2. Cook on low overnight (10ish hours). (See Note 1)
  3. Let meat cook and then shred with a fork. Meat should just fall apart.
  4. Coat frying pan or pot with olive oil and heat.
  5. With a low burner (simmer), add shredded pork to the pan or pot.
  6. Add red sauce (you can add more or less as you prefer). Mix sauce thoroughly with pork.
  7. Simmer 5-10ish minutes. Basically heat the meat and sauce together while letting any excess water evaporate.

Ingredients

    Chili Pod Red Sauce

  • Pack of dried Chili Pods
  • 1 onion (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup minced garlic
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup water

Directions

  1. Remove chili pods stems and seeds.
  2. Place chili pods in a pot and fill with water.
  3. Bring pods to a boil and then reduce to simmer. Simmer until chili pods are soft and moist.
  4. Put chili pods into a blender.
  5. Add onion, garlic, salt and pepper to the blender.
  6. Add 1 cup of water (preferably from the original pot) to the blender
  7. Blend until smooth (See Note 2).

Note 1: You can actually eat the meat at this point. However, it tastes better if you add the chili pod red sauce!

Note 2: As the chili pods will be hot, remove the center piece on the blender lid to keep the sauce from expanding quickly out of the blender! (exploding)

  • 1/2 cup goat butter

  3. Peel and chop baking potato.
  4. Place 1 potato, 1/2 squash, 1/2 zucchini, and 2 tbsp butter on sheet of aluminum foil

  6. Season the squash and zucchini with the seasons listed above or your favorite spices.
  7. Enclose the ingredients in the foil and place the foil in the fireplace hot coals. Make sure the food is NOT exposed. The veggies will take about 20 mins to cook.
  8. Place fish fillet on an aluminum foil sheet.
  9. Add 1/4 cup onion and 1/4 cup garlic over the fish.
  10. Season with the seasonings above or your favorite spices.
  11. Add mushrooms and spinach leaves (as much or as little as you like)
  12. Sprinkle lemon juice over the fish and ingredients.
  13. Enclose the ingredients in the foil and place the foil in the fireplace hot coals. Make sure the food is NOT exposed. The fish will take about 15 mins to cook. (See Note 2)

Note 1: Potatoes are optional. If you want a keto meal, simply don’t add it.

Note 2: The larger the fillet the more time needed to cook it. The smaller or thinner the fillet, the less time needed to cook it. You will have to check it to make sure it is cooked through.

Note 3: If the fish or veggies are not cooked through when you open the packet, simply close it back up and put back in the coals!

Note4: One tin foil package per person.


Chicken & Dumplings

When we first did this delicious southern comfort food we had just gotten a microphone and didn’t have lights. It is such an amazing dish that Editor General Aunt Winkie and I thought we should re- do it using all the awesome new skills and equipment we have acquired over the last year or so.

Written recipe is forthcoming (one would think Aunt Winkie would get this out on time!!!!)

Super Bowl Snackage: Better than Cocktail Weenies!

One last Super Bowl Snack Recommendation. This is a simple and quick recipe and makes for a great treat. Nonna made these boneless ribs in the Instant Pot.

This is a very basic recipe. As such there is not written recipe. The steps Nonna took are as follows:

1. Brown the ribs with an onion and garlic. You can brown them using the sauté feature in the instant pot. However, Nonna used a skillet on the stove top.
2. Season the ribs with your favorite spices. Nonna used Dan Pastorini’s Texas Style Rub and Garlic and Herb Seasoning and Gumbo Daddy’s Cajun Seasonings. You can marinate the ribs in your favorite BBQ sauce over night if you desire. Seasonings is really up to you in this recipe.
3. Place ribs in the instant pot (on a rack).
4. Add 1 cup beef broth and additional spices (optional). Nonna added some hot sauce.
5. Cook meat in your instant pot. Use meat stew setting. Nonna set time for 15 minutes and depressurized it. However, you should check your multi-cooker’s instruction for cooking times.
6. Cut ribs into bite size chunks and serve!

The intention was to put all three keto friendly party snacks in one video, but Editor General Aunt Winkie made an artistic decision to put these in three different videos. 

There are 3 videos to the Super Bowl Snack Series. 7 Layer Dip, Crab Dip, and Boneless Ribs!
