Always. I’ve been trying to think of a dish I wouldn’t want to add at least a pinch of cayenne pepper to and honestly, I’ve got nothing. Ice cream? Actually that I have no problem with that, and will most likely add some next time I pick up some vanilla. Chocolate? I suppose, but then again I wouldn’t mind a little heat with my chocolate. The point here is that cayenne powder can be added to any dish to enhance flavors and provide a little heat and I keep mine right next to the salt and pepper.
Cayenne powder is made from grounded up dried chillies. Now I like things hot, so I’m exaggerating a tiny bit when I say you should add it to everything. I mean you should, but it’s ok if you don’t dig lots of spices and heat. In comparison to other spices it’s one of the hottest and most pungent so a little goes a long way.
Yeah, fuck it. I’ve been working on this fucking site for over a month and I’m sick of dicking around. Awesome episode of top chef and nothing but good company. Fuck it. I thought it would be a good night for something, and it’s too damn nice in DC to not be grilling. Here’s the meal. Enjoy. We loved it.
All I could think about was pork walking home so after a quick call to a friend i picked up a some pork loin (both sliced and whole) and a bit of mustard. Green beans were easy and there i was, home after 10 minutes ready to throw my gnocchi in with the dish.
Spice rub of (SC spices) with a generous helping of cayenne pepper and Chinese five spice. After a mustard rub and a rub of the spices a touch of olive oil and were off. 2o minutes after the rub on the grill four ways and on the plate with g nocchi and greenbeans.
Greanbeans was in deep pan with cup of chicken stock and extra salt/pepper. A 1/2 lbs. of greenbeans laid out and 2o minutes later we’re good.
Gnocchi is a whole other story…
