Mad Science Experiment - Fatties
I'm doing two experimental fatties this weekend.
I got an idea earlier this week to add some Tender Quick to some regular Jimmy Dean and make a fatty out of it. I have no idea what this would be like, and searches came up with nothing. So I figured what the heck, I'll give it a whirl.
What I did for the Cured Jimmy Dean fatty was take a 2 pound roll and mix in 4 teaspoons of Tender Quick. Then I put it back in the fridge to cure. It will cure about 36 hours before it hits the cooker.
The other experimental fatty did not occur to me until last night when whipping up some beef sausages and thinking about this weekends fatties. My mind drifted to corned beef hash for some reason. I'm not a huge fan of corned beef hash, but I do like it now and then. It hit me that I may be able to make a Corned Beef Hash Fatty.
What I did was take a pound of 80/20 Ground Beef, and mix in the following to make it Corned Beef flavored:
1 tbsp Tender Quick
1 1/4 tsp Brown Sugar
1/4 tsp Paprika
1/4 tsp ground Bay leaves
1/4 tsp ground Allspice
1/8 tsp Garlic Powder
I put this in the fridge to cure for at least 24 hours. Before putting it in the cooker I will dice up some potato and onion and mix this into the meat. Then I will roll it out into a tube and cook up like a fatty! I'm thinking I'll probably apply a rub just because I can't think of a good reason not to.
