Coconut Breaded Shrimp

(what I used in parenthesis)

 

Set oven to 350 degrees.  Clean and pat dry shrimp.  Get three shallow bowls for your prepping stations.  In bowl 1 add your flour and seasonings, bowl 2 is your eggs, bowl 3 is your coconut flakes and bread crumbs.  Coat shrimp in bowl 1 then bowl 2 then bowl 3.  Place on cookie sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray.  Cook for 10-12 min, turn and cook and additional 7-10 min or until golden brown.  Serve however you like shrimp, I prefer to dip them in my homemade bbq sauce lol

First combine salt, pepper, garlic powder, chili powder, parsley and turmeric in a bowl.  Cover roast in this dry rub (you can sit back in fridge for 20 min or continue to next step)  Pour chicken broth into crock pot and place the roast in. Cook in crock pot on low for 5-6 hours or until meat is done and easily pulled apart.  Once meat is done, remove roast and pour the roast juices into a bowl and sit aside.  Shred meat and put back into the crock pot.  Add a 1/4 – 1/2 cup of the reserved juices and the BBQ sauce. Cook in crock pot on low for an additional 1/2 – 1 hour.  We served these on dinner rolls.

I bought my buffalo at a local farm here in AZ called Adam’s Natural Meats.  All my seasonings were organic, my chicken broth was grass fed organic and the BBQ Sauce is my all natural homemade bbq sauce.  You can try this recipe with a pork or beef roast, cooking times may vary.

  • 1 c Beer of choice
  • 1 med Onion sliced
  • 1/2 c Bell peppers, sliced
  • 1/4 c Honey
  • 2 T Worcestershire
  • 1 t Garlic, crushd
  • 1 t Chili Powder
  • 1 t Turmeric
  • Pepper to taste

Lay Chicken out in a 9×13 baking dish.  Lay the slices of peppers and onions out over the chicken meat.  Sprinkle with garlic, chili powder, turmeric and pepper.  Pour beer and Worcestershire sauce over top of that. Drizzle with honey.  Bake at 325 degrees for 60-70 min.  We ate this over brown jasmine rice but it is delicious on its own or even atop a bed of spinach or lettuce.

BBQ Bean Chili

Don’t you love those days when you haven’t made it to the grocery store yet and your inventory is running kinda low.  You go to the pantry to see what you have the ingredients to make and of course you need 1-2 more ingredients to make ANYTHING that you normally fix.  Although, some may see this as a perfect excuse to get creative and wing it.  For some reason *cough cough*, this happens to us a lot (ok, the real reason is ….I hate strongly dislike grocery shopping)

BBQ Bean Chili (no, it isn’t your imagination, you DO see the word BBQ on my blog a lot)

For frying beef:

Add all above ingredients to a deep skillet or other large pot and cook on medium heat until meat is thoroughly cooked, lightly drain and return to skillet or pot. (if you aren’t eating clean grass fed meat, drain completely)

 For the rest:

Add second list of ingredients, stir until combined, cover and simmer on low for 1 hour stirring occasionally

serves 4-5

Spicy Southern BBQ Chicken

This recipe I used to make years ago.  I came across the recipe recently and decided to give it a try using organic ingredients instead of  *cough* what I used to make it with. Here is what I did and it turned out quite nicely, definitely a repeater.

     Spicey Southern BBQ Chicken

  • 2 lbs Chicken pieces (I like to use strips of breast meat)
  • 1 med Onion, sliced
  • 1 c  Chicken broth
  • 2 T  Vinegar
  • 2 T  Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 T  Chili powder
  • 2-3 T  Honey, Maple syrup or other natural sweetener of your choice
  • 2 t  Hot pepper flakes
  • Black pepper to taste
  • dash or two of turmeric

Place chicken in a 9×13, then place onion slices over top of the chicken.  In separate bowl, combine remaining ingredients and stir well. Pour mixture over chicken and bake at 350 for 1 hour or until cooked thoroughly, basting with mixture occasionally.
