Fabulous Fajitas
October 11, 2018

The marinade is the secret to fabulously tender, juicy meat that can stand on its own.  Grilling gives it a smoky flavor but I cook these in a cast iron skillet.   It helps caramelize the vegetables and the meat.  If you are grilling I would use a basket to put the meat in and then use a skillet to cook the vegetables.   You can also use beef, bison or even venison as the protein.  When cooking chicken I allow for about 20% shrinkage.  Hence, the recipe calls for one and quarter pound to allow for one full pound of cooked protein.

Ostrich With Mixed Mushrooms
September 5, 2018

Game on!! I have only cooked this once and I have to say I liked  it more than venison but try it for yourself.  It is a bit more expensive than beef.  It may not be something that you would eat every day, but it is worth trying.  Especially if you are sensitive to beef.   My client loved it but he has eaten bear and I am his chef.  Wild game is part of the Mito food list as well.  You can order it from a specialty butcher.  They have farms here right here in California!
