As we wait for Slow Food USA event; I BBQ'd Monday's roast

Tomorrow morning Chef Michael Fleshner's Slow Food USA event kicks off at the Conroe Farmer's Market. Tonight I retrieved my slow roast of Beef from the fridge and used J.Porter's BBQ sauce from last week's cater to make an exceptional meal. It started by adding water to a small pan and adding in 1 inch diced potatoes. When the potatoes were cooked I shaved off 8oz. of Beef from my roast into the pan. Next came 3oz. of BBQ sauce and 1oz. of my current SamM salsa {Fresh diced Tomatoes, Spanish onions, Rice vinegar Balsamic style,diced Bell peppers, diced peaches and crushed Kiwi} I then placed an OROweat sandwich thin on a plate. Poured the hot mixture on the OROWeat. And topped my creation with ranch-style Guacamole.

Ranch Style Guacamole:

1        ripe Avocado, skin and pit removed

2oz.    SamM salsa, whatever the current version is

1oz      Ranch dressing

 1         Bell pepper, roasted if available

1/2       Fresh Lemon, squeezed

Place all in a small food processor { $15 dollars at Walmart} and blend till creamy. When I found this food processor at Wally World a few months ago it has turned out to be an exceptional kitchen gadget for preparing delicious sauces/ dressings for the wife and I.

Well tomorrow I will visit market in search of mouth watering fruits and veggies to create yet another Slow roasted meal. Chef Michael encourages you to check facebook's  Conroe Saturday am Market in the next few days for photos from the event.




Slow cooked Roast for 5 hours

I looked at the forest fire updates and noticed it still shows the fires missed my nieces apartment in Bastrop TX. by one block to the east. And the fire near Magnolia came up to the southern boundary of the property in Todd Mission TX. where they hold the Texas Renaissance Festival. The Ren Cen Fest will begin as planned on Oct.8, 2011 according to the official site

Dinner this evening was started at 1pm. 275 F for a 5 pound roast of beef. I placed fresh sliced Spanish onions. Juice from the current SamM salsa {diced Tomato. Spanish onion,Variety of Bell peppers, Star Crimson pears and 1/4 cup Rice vinegar Balsamic style} Red Bell peppers and 2 Tbsp of Rosemary from Penzy's spices, on top. At 4 pm the wife pulled it out of the oven. At 5pm I placed the roast back in the oven after dicing {one inch cubes} of the Large bake potato and tossing them in the pan juices.The oven temp. was raised to 350F.

As is often the case the wife and I ate our dinner finished two different ways. For the wife, I thinly sliced 2 pieces of m.well beef placed them in a bowl with the oven browned potatoes . Poured pan juice on everything and cut a OROWeat sandwich thin in half for her. For myself I created a sandwich with the OROWeat thins. Two slices of Beef, Blue cheese dressing , SamM salsa and on the second sandwich I sprinkled Parmesan cheese. I also had the Oven brown potatoes. For dessert we finished the hot Banana pie with Chocolate swirl Ice cream, Chocolate topping and the fruit compote from our Anniversary Dinner.
