Best Chili Ever- Served over Potato Pancakes

Ingredients

Diana Anderson's Best Chili Ever

  • 1 ½ lbs of ground pork (from Circle B Ranch go to www.circlebranchpork.com to order.)
  • 1 Jar JD’s Chili Tequila Lime Chili Fixins (to order https://www.jdschiliparlor.com/shop/)
  • ½ to ¾ cup water
  • ¼ cup yellow pepper I used the mini peppers
  • ¼ cup red pepper I did not have the yellow pepper so added more of the red.
  • ¼ cup orange Juice
  • 2 tbsp Avocado Oil- I sprayed my pan with Corn Huskers Gourmet Duck Fat Spray
  • 1 1/2 shallots chopped (Diana uses ¼ onion diced)
  • 1 clove garlic chopped (I omitted the garlic)

Potato Pancakes

  • 3 – 3 1/2 cups Frozen Shredded Potatoes for Hash Browns (I used Paper towels to get most of the moisture off potatoes and put them in the refrigerator for the next day.)
  • 2 eggs Beaten
  • 2 Tbsp Flour
  • ¼ tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 ½ tsp salt

Instructions

Chili

  • Sautee onion and garlic and peppers in avocado oil add pork and continue to cook until pork is no longer pink, drain off any excess fat. Add one jar of JD’s Chili Fixin’s Tequila Lime then add water, simmer uncovered for 15 minutes, add sea salt to taste and serve over Potato Pancakes or Fritos.

Potato Pancakes

  • Put the potatoes in a bowl and the Beaten eggs, flour, baking powder, salt mix well. If you need a little extra flour to add it to the mixture.Since we were using this as a base for our Chili dish, the chili was warming, and we put 1 to tablespoons of Olive Oil into the electric frying pan when it was hot add the potato mixture about 3 tablespoons for each Pancake, we made two pancakes. They need to be light brown on each side.

Serve

  • We put them on a plate then used about 2 ladles of Chili on top of the Pancakes to serve. Add Mexican cheese to the top. And then served.

BEST EVER PORK ROAST AND SAUERKRAUT

PERMISSION TO USE THIS RECEIPE FROM MARINA BACKES OF CIRCLE BRANCH PORK

Ingredients

  • 3-4 lb Boneless Port Loin Roast I used Circle B Ranch brand
  • 2 lb sauerkraut I do not rinse mine
  • 1 Tbsp caraway seeds you can omit this if you hate caraway seeds but for me it makes the dish
  • 1 cup sweet onion chopped
  • 1 Granny Smith apple Peeled and chopped
  • 1 Tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 cup water optional
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil I used Cornhusker Duck Fat Spray

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325F, rack in the middle. Pat the pork dry and sprinkle the entire roast with salt, pepper and smoke paprika. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium0high heat and add in the olive oil. When the olive oil starts to simmer carefully place the pork roast in. Sear on all sides until golden brown – 5-8 minutes per side. Sauté onion and then apples in the same pan.
  • In a lidden 6 qt Dutch Oven, place the sauerkraut all over the bottom. Sprinkle over the caraway seeds, onions, apples, and brown sugar. Place the seared pork roast on top nestling it in the sauerkraut. If you’ve drained your sauerkraut, add the water. If you did not, you do not need the water. You want at least a cup of liquid in the pot.
  • Cover tightly with a lid and bake for about 2 hours or until a meat thermometer reads between 145F-150F. While it is cooking, check the pot to ensure that it is not drying out. If needed, add more water. I have never had to but I always add at least a cup of liquid. Remove from the oven once the thermometer reads 145F-150F. Carefully remove the roast from the pan and place on a cutting board covering loosely with foil.

Kathryn’s Cheesy Potato Stacks

Equipment

  • Muffin Pans

Ingredients

  • 6 medium Yukon gold potatoes scrubbed, thinly sliced
  • ¾ cup freshly grated gruyere cheese
  • ½ cup freshly grated pecorino Romano cheese
  • 1/4 stick butter
  • 1 tsp dried Thyme finely chopped
  • 2 tsp fresh parsley finely chopped
  • 1 tsp lemon Pepper
  • ½ cup half & half
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400F
  • In a saucepan over medium heat, add: butter, thyme, half & half, kosher salt, and black pepper. Heat until butter is melted and cream is warm, about 3-4 minutes.
  • While the herb cream warms, slice the potatoes. I used a slicer or sharp knife, thinly slice potatoes using a knife glove or a guard. Place in a large bowl. Pour herb cream over sliced potatoes and add half of the gruyere and pecorino Romano cheese. Toss the sliced potatoes until they are fully coated.
  • In a non-stick muffin pan (if you don’t have non-stick, lightly grease), start stacking the potato slices all the way to the top of the muffin tin. Take the remaining herb cream and evenly disperse over the stacks. Top with the remaining cheese.
  • Cover the muffin pan with parchment paper followed by foil (the parchment will keep the cheese from sticking). Place muffin tin in a sheet pan and place in the oven. Roast for 30 minutes covered, then remove foil/parchment and roast an additional 20 minutes until tops are browned and bubbling.
  • Once the potatoes are done cooking, use a knife or spoon to loosen around the sides and carefully scoop out of the tins.

The Best Bourbon Apricot Glazed Ham

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup Apricot Jam
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup whole-grain Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup bourbon
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice fresh if possible
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 4.5 lb boneless Circle B Ranch Hickory Smoked Ham

Instructions

  • Move oven rack to lower third portion of the oven and preheat to 325° F. Line bottom of a roasting pan with aluminum foil for easy cleanup and set aside.
  • Add apricot jam, maple syrup, Dijon mustard, bourbon, lemon juice, ground ginger and salt and pepper to a mixing bowls and whisk to combine well. Set aside.
  • Remove ham from package and pat dry if too wet. Place ham on roasting rack, flat side down, so the fatty side is facing up. Gently score the ham in a crisscross pattern, and brush all over with 1/2 cup of the prepared glaze. Cover ham loosely with aluminum foil to prevent drying out or burning. Bake for about 1 – 1 1/2 hours, until instant thermometer inserted into the middle of the ham registers 125-130° F.
  • Remove roasting pan from the oven and peel back or remove foil from the top and sides of the ham. Increase oven temperature to 375° F. Brush 6 Tbsp. of glaze over the ham and bake for 20 minutes, brushing ham with additional 6 Tbsp. of glaze every 6-7 minutes. You'll be brushing the ham with glaze approximately 3 times during this step. Be sure to watch that the glaze doesn't burn, but instead turns a rich, deep golden color. Remove roasting pan from oven and place ham on a large cutting board. Tent loosely with foil and let ham rest for 20 minutes before slicing.

Kathryn is passionate about healthy cooking so she and NxStage Patient Advocate, Celeste Fuller, prepare some healthy Thanksgiving dishes. Kathryn wants to thank Chef Aaron McCargo from Fresenius Kidney Care for his Rustic Apple Cinnamon Filled Phyllo Pastries recipe.

Rustic Apple Cinnamon Filled Phyllo Pastries

Servings: 6 Servings

Ingredients

  • 4 cups Apples (3½ peeled medium-diced Granny Smith, Gala and/or Honeycrisp apples)
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Butter unsalted, firm
  • ¼ cup Butter unsalted, melted (for buttering phyllo pastry sheets)
  • ¼ teaspoon Cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1 package phyllo dough 6 sheets

In a Small Bowl:

  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar

Optional Garnish:

  • powdered sugar, fresh mint sprigs, and whipped cream
  • Optional garnish: powdered sugar fresh mint sprigs, and whipped cream

Instructions

Apple mixture:

  • Preheat oven to 350° F. In a large sauté pan on medium-high heat, sauté apples in butter for 6–8 minutes. Stir in cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar. Cook for an additional 3–4 minutes. In a small cup, mix cornstarch and vanilla extract until dissolved. Stir into apple mixture and cook for an additional two minutes on medium-high heat. Turn off heat and set mixture aside.

Phyllo dough pastries:

  • Lightly grease a large 6-muffin tin pan. Starting with the first sheet of phyllo dough, brush each side with melted butter then dust with the powdered sugar and cinnamon mix. Continue until all 6 sheets have been buttered and dusted with sugar and cinnamon mix, stacking one sheet on top of the other as you go. Cut each stack into 6 squares. Line the bottom and sides of each muffin cup using one stack of squares, leaving some of the squares hanging over the edges of the muffin cups. Fill each phyllo-lined muffin cup halfway to three-quarters full with the apple mixture (this will depend on how big the apples are cut), making sure each phyllo-lined muffin cup has equal amounts of apple mixture. Fold excess phyllo dough over the apples in each muffin cup. Bake in preheated oven at 350° F for 8–10 minutes or until golden brown. Optional: Garnish with powdered sugar, fresh mint sprigs and/or whipped cream.

Sprinkle seasonings over tilapia fillets, season with salt and pepper. Place the fish into the oven for 25 minutes. Poke fish with a fork to see if it’s white and flaky. It might need 5 more minutes. Remove the fish from the oven and sprinkle with lime zest, then place filets aside in large glass dish. Heat a large skillet to medium high with a drizzle of olive oil, corn, red onion and red bell pepper. Sear for 1-2 minutes without stirring. Stir and cook another few minutes until vegetables are tender and caramelized. Add drained and rinsed black beans and heat for 1 minute.
