Mo Knows October and Light The Night Walk

E-Konomy Pool Service & Supplies is partnering with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Light The Night Walk.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) is the largest voluntary health agency dedicated to finding cures for leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma and other blood cancers. To date, LLS has invested more than $1 billion in cutting-edge research to advance therapies while providing support and advocacy programs that have helped millions of patients navigate their treatments and access quality, affordable and coordinate care. Thanks to research, survival rates for patients with many blood cancers have doubled, tripled and even quadrupled since the early 1960’s.

Our participation will help LLS’s mission:

To cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. Steve’s survival is in no small part due to the LLS program.

Please try this recipe and let us know what you think!
Recipe courtesy of Chef Paul Froggatt. You can read more about Paul on page 14 of the Lifestyle Magazine.

“Pluma,” which is Spanish for feather, is a lean, feather-shaped cut of pork. Butternut squash is known as butternut pumpkin in New Zealand and Australia.

Ingredients

    • 6.5 lb (3 kg) pork pluma
    • Pork Marinade Ingredients
    • 2 basil leaves
    • 1 sprig of thyme
    • ½ sprig of rosemary
    • 1 sage leaf
    • 2 bay leaves
    • Zest of 2 lemons (blanched and chopped)
    • 2 garlic cloves, sliced
    • 1 cup (240 ml) olive oil
    • 2 tsp (10 ml) sea salt
    • 1½ tsp (8 ml) black pepper
    • 1 tbsp (15 ml) caraway seeds
    • Pork Marinade Instructions

Take all the herbs and lightly chop them together, toast the black pepper and the caraway seeds in a pan. Season the pork with all of the ingredients and marinate for 3 to 4 days ideally, but at least overnight. Before roasting, remove the herbs.

Set the EGG for indirect cooking with the convEGGtor at 325°F/163°C.

Slice the pork into the desired serving size, and roast on the EGG for 30 to 45 minutes, turning about every 10 minutes. A few damp sage and rosemary sprigs added to the charcoal at this point will add to the taste of the pork.

Set the EGG for indirect cooking with the convEGGtor at 400°F/204°C.

Cut the neck off of the pumpkin and use the round base of the pumpkin for roasting in the EGG; the rest you will use to make pickled pumpkin and pumpkin puree (scan the QR code below). Slice the base into ½ in (12 mm) rounds. Rub the tops of the rounds with a little bit of olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Place on the cooking grid and roast for 45 minutes until nice and roasted … be careful not to overcook them.

June Recipe of The Month

Ancho Chili Grilled Kurobuta Pork with Bourbon Caramelized Apples

Kurobuta Pork Chops are tender, juicy and every bit as tasty as any steak you can throw on the grill. And if it wasn’t for the Bourbon-Caramelized Apples that recipe author Ken Hess adds as a sweet and delicious complement to the pork, you wouldn’t see too much difference in cooking style either.

Enjoy this meal when you want the texture of steak with a strong flavor of sweet and spicy pork.

Please let us know if you have any ideas for grill, smoker or BBQ recipes. We are open to suggestions and would love to see pictures of your favorite foods on the Big Green Egg!!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Kurobuta Frenched Pork Chops
  • 1 Tbsp Dry Rub
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 Gala apples, cored and thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp thyme leaves
  • ½ tsp Kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper, ground
  • ½ cup bourbon

Instructions

Set your EGG for direct cooking without the convEGGtor; bring the EGG to 550°F/288°C.

Mix the dry rub ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Coat both sides of the Snake River Farms Kurobuta pork chops with the dry rub. Sear all four sides of the pork chops over direct flames for 30 seconds per side. Remove chops from the grill and set aside.

Place a cast iron skillet on the grill grate. Let the skillet preheat for 5-10 minutes, or until it has heated enough to sauté. Melt the butter in the cast iron pan and sauté the shallots and the garlic until soft. Add the apple, thyme leaves, salt, and pepper. Sauté until the apples start to brown and soften. Remove pan from the grill and deglaze with the bourbon.

Place the pork chops on the bed of apples and close the grill lid. Cook the chops until they reach an internal temperature of 140°F/60°C. Remove the cast iron skillet from the grill and let the pork chops rest for 10 minutes.

Slice the pork chops and serve with the bourbon caramelized apples.

Dry Rub Ingredients

  • 2 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1 tsp Ancho chili powder
  • ½ tsp black pepper, ground
  • ¾ tsp coriander seeds, ground
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon, ground
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg, ground
