Default Beef Cheek Barbacoa on the High Plains - w/ Pr0n

I'm incredibly thankful for a weekend. Awoke early and NEEDED menudo. Handled that. Munchkin thrilled. That took me towards Mexican for dinner instead of the rib tips I'd planned.

SteveKing's Barbacoa Recipe started calling my name.

Instead of a chuckie, I wanted beef cheeks.



Called on the 22.5 Kettle w/ lump and hickory.





Whipped up the braising liquid & spice mixture.



All the kids in the pool!



That's sealed up in foil, in a 350F oven for a couple of hours while the NFL playoffs roll on the telly.

Meanwhile, CINCHOUSE asked me to recreate a wings sauce I last made in Wicken, East Cambridgeshire for the Christmas Fair:



Homemade cranberry sauce, orange marmelade, whisky, lemon juice, cinnamon sticks, whole cloves.... then minced habaneros/Scotch Bonnets until it's too spicy when temperature hot (it'll calm down when the temp fades).



More on that tomorrow.

Oh yeah... what about this 2LB Jimmy Dean Hot Sausage Chub!?

I decided it should be "Christmas" all over again... with a half-red chile / half-green chile rub on this baby.



Meanwhile, this Knob Creek Rye Double-Old Fashioned isn't going to drink itself.

More to follow.

Kind regards and thin blue.

Hey Marc,

I'll be following this closely, it looks great so far! I'd love to try beef cheeks, the only place that sells them around me is RD and I'd rather not buy 10 Lbs to "try".....

Thanks,
Greg

Really!? That's frustrating. I can only get beef cheeks from Walmart, and in these more reasonable packages.

Hang in there, brother. Thought I noticed a brace/support in a photo this week.

Working on the Spring SW Bash options as next step in the ABQ area. Hollar if you're in the vicinity. Would be happy to see you!

Pulled the beef cheeks after a couple of hours braising in the oven - pulled the meat with a quick chop for the more difficult bits. Back in for another 20-30 minutes to soak up all the goodness.

CINCHOUSE made a batch of Calabacitas using some squash, garlic, and onion.



Homemade guac really set the stage and pulled it together (especially with a quick squeeze of lime).
Queso Fresco and pickled onions helped cut though the richness.

Munchkin came back for seconds on this! She exclaimed her love for both the barbacoa and calabacitas with an extra taco, each! She must have a hollow leg!

Thanks for hanging with me, folks. We ate well, and have leftovers through the week (happy Momma).

Kind regards to you all.

For the record, we had some bitter orange-pickled red onions from the cochinita pibil, and CINCHOUSE said she loaded up her last taco with those to cut through the richness of the barbacoa.

Might be worth looking into. - It's literally thinly sliced onions in bitter orange juice.
