Safer to make your own burgers?

There has been much talk in the press lately of horse meat being found in store burgers in the UK, which has sparked concerns around the world.

Although some countries don't think anything about eating horse meat, and regularly do, here in the US it's not something that's done or accepted.

How do you really know what kind of meat is in the burgers you have bought? We don't all have DNA analysers at home!!!!!

BUT if you make your own burgers then that's a different story!

Add some Scott's Bourdelaise Marinade to ground beef/turkey and you will have the tastiest burgers ever!!!!!!!

Gluten Free Seasonings!

Did you know that ALL Scott's Food Products Seasonings are GLUTEN FREE!!!!!!!?

Eating a Gluten Free diet is becoming more popular by choice not just by necessity due to a medical condition.

The Gluten Free market place is growing rapidly and we are please to say that all our seasonings are GLUTEN FREE!!!!!

Here's a tasty Taco recipe for Taco Tuesday dinner!

Braised Pork Tacos

1 (4 to 5 pound) boneless pork shoulder
Scott's Santa Maria seasoning
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 cups chicken stock
4 oranges, juiced about 2 cups
1/2 jar Scott's Chipotle Marinade
2 limes, juiced
1/4 head red cabbage, shredded
1 cup crumbled queso fresco or 2 cups shredded Monterey jack
16 warm corn or flour tortillas
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Season the pork generously with Scott's Snata Maria & let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Pat the pork dry with a paper towel. Heat a large Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed pot over high heat with 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Put the pork in the pot and evenly brown the meat all over, about 10 to 12 minutes; remove the pork to a plate and reserve.
Turn heat down to med-high. Add the chicken stock and orange juice. Add the reserved pork back to the pot (the liquid should come about 2/3 the way up the meat) and bring to a simmer. Cover and put the pork in the oven, turning the meat halfway through cooking, until the meat is very tender, about 2 1/2-3 hours. Remove the pork from the pot, to a cutting board and tent with foil to keep warm. When cool enough to handle, pull the meat apart with 2 forks.
Simmer the braising liquid over medium heat until reduced by half. Add the Scott's Chipotle Marinade and the lime juice. Add about 2/3 of the shredded meat and stir. Cool the remaining shredded pork and chill for another use.
To serve, put the chipotle pulled pork on a platter (garnish with pickled onions and pickled jalapeno slices if desired). Serve with shredded cabbage, crumbled cheese and tortillas for wrapping.
