Now four weeks into quarantine, we’ve all spent more time in our homes and kitchens than ever before. With limited access to groceries and other products I have found myself getting creative in the kitchen. We won’t mention all the dishes that come along with this creative cooking-ergh. I’m always looking on Pinterest for recipe ideas and thought it would be so fun to hear from locals. So we’re asking to come in your kitchen.. What’s a new or classic dish you’ve proudly prepared?
This week Amanda Beck shared her this beautiful meal that was prepared in her kitchen. Read below for the recipe! YUM!
- -2lb Tri-tip roast
-Applewood Rub (or rub of your choice)
- -1/2 stick butter
- 1lb asapargus
- 2tsp toasted sesame seeds
- 2tbsp olive oil
- 1lb Fresh Green beans
- 1/2 lb bacon
- 1/2 sweet onion
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2/3 c. Broth (I like Knorr Chicken bouillon)
Heat smoker to 200°. Rub roast with a nice amount of rub and let sit until room temperature. Place on smoker for 3-4 hours. Check the meat with a thermometer and remove at 150°-160° or when roast is your desired “pinkness”. Turn off the smoker. Wrap in foil with butter, place back on the smoker, and let rest.
In a large skillet, heat olive oil. Cut ends off asparagus. Sautee for about 8 minutes on medium until tender. Try to avoid over cooking. Asparagus should not be soggy. Add sesame seeds and toss for about another minute. Remove from heat.
Sautee bacon in a medium pot. Add onions after about 6 minutes. When bacon is almost crisp, drain a bit of the grease and add green beans. Cook about 10 minutes and add garlic. Add broth and cover, stirring occasionally. Once the liquid evaporates, its ready. Slice Tri-tip thin and enjoy with salsa!
