Chef Tips

Don’t Just Eat Your Greens – Enjoy Them!
If you’re getting sick of your go-to greens, let Arugula kick up the flavor of your favorite meals! At just 5 calories in an entire cup, this peppery-flavored cruciferous vegetable is not only good for your waistline, it’s good for you. Packed with vitamin A and vitamin K, it’s also a good source of vitamin C, calcium and folate. Plus, it’s high in nitrates, which have been shown to lower blood pressure. Perfect as a stand-alone salad green or in a mix, added to sandwiches, pizza, pasta or noodle dishes, this versatile green also does well in sauces and a number of vegetable sides.

An Apple A Day
The Fuji apple is a hybrid of the Red Delicious and Ralls Janet varieties. Developed by Japanese growers in the 1930’s, this crisp, sweet apple is now one of the most popular varieties. This late season favorite is ideal for desserts like apple pie and cinnamon apples, or served with pork, salads, warm brie or for adding a sweet crunch to grilled Paninis.



Shop the Sale: Grilled Shrimp with Romesco Sauce


Prep Time: 1 hour
Cook Time: 30 mins
Serves: 4

Indulge in a taste of Spain with our Grilled Shrimp and made-from-scratch Romesco Sauce, a roasted red pepper and almond sauce originating from the Catalonia region. It might seem like a lot of work, but trust us, it’s worth the effort! Pro tip: skewer your shrimp before grilling. This makes flipping and quickly removing shrimp from the heat much easier. Another pro tip is to take advantage of Wild Caught Gulf Shrimp on sale this week at Brookshire’s!

Ingredients
2 slices crunchy rustic-style bread, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (about 2 1/2 cups)
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
3/4 cup almonds
1 lb ripe tomatoes, coarsely chopped
1 Tbs paprika
1/2 tsp kosher salt, plus more to taste
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper, plus more to taste
8 oz canned roasted red peppers
3/4 cup olive oil
16 large shrimp, peeled and deveined (about 1 lb)

Instructions
Preheat oven to 350° F. In a bowl, soak bread cubes in vinegar for 20 minutes. Toast almonds for 10 to 15 minutes, watching closely. (Don’t burn.) Let almonds cool completely. Grind them in food processor until finely ground but not oily. (Do not over process.)

Add vinegar-soaked bread, tomatoes, paprika, salt, pepper and red peppers to processor. Grind together briefly until evenly pureed. With motor running, add olive oil in thin stream. Mix quickly until all ingredients are just incorporated.

To grill shrimp, brush with olive oil. Sprinkle with coarse salt and freshly cracked pepper. Once cooked, serve hot with Romesco Sauce.

Chef Tips

Select the Best Shrimp
When it comes to fresh shrimp, there are two types: fresh and never-frozen. Unless you live in a shrimping area, it’s unlikely you’ll see never-frozen shrimp. Most shrimp is sold either frozen or previously frozen, as this is the only way to keep it fresh until it gets to you. You will be able to tell if fresh shrimp hasn’t been frozen from its somewhat translucent appearance versus previously frozen shrimp which looks more opaque. The most important thing with fresh shrimp is to look for firmness and a mild scent. If it smells like ammonia at all, then it’s definitely not fresh. The second is to avoid shrimp that are slimy or have black spots. When it comes to buying frozen shrimp, make sure it’s individually quick-frozen and wild caught for the best flavor.

Perfectly Grilled Shrimp Every Time
The first secret to perfectly grilled shrimp is skewering. It keeps them from falling through the grill and makes shrimp easier to handle. Use metal or pre-soaked wooden skewers. You can marinate your shrimp or simply brush with oil prior to grilling, which needs to be done hot and quick. Preheat the grill to medium-hot and cook for just 2-3 minutes per side. You can tell that it’s time to flip when the flesh is beginning to turn pink. Whatever you do, do not overcook! Overdone shrimp is rubbery and has no flavor.



Shop the Sale: Chile Colorado


Chile Colorado RecipePrep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 7-8 hours
Serves: 8

Fall is on its way, which means it’s time to pull out the slow cooker! One of our favorite recipes for the colder months is Chile Colorado. Delicious, and ridiculously easy, this Mexican Chile brings so much flavor to a ready-to-eat weeknight dinner. Quick to prepare, requiring just a couple of canned goods, spices and a beef chuck roast, you can throw everything in the crockpot and you’re done. And with Boneless Chuck Roast on sale this week, it’s a good time to give this traditional favorite a try.

Ingredients
1 (15 oz) can red enchilada sauce
1 (15 oz) can tomato sauce
1/2 cup vinegar
1/4 cup brown sugar
4 Tbs chili powder
1 Tbs ground cumin
1 Tbs oregano leaves
2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp finely ground black pepper
1 (5 lb) beef chuck roast, trimmed of most visible fat

Instructions
In a large slow cooker, add all ingredients except beef. Mix well to combine; add beef. Cover and cook on low for 7 hours. Once cooked and tender, remove meat then pull it apart with two forks. (The sauce will finish to a somewhat thin consistency. If you’d like the sauce thicker and more gravy-like, remove meat and keep warm. Leave sauce in slow cooker on low. Add 1/4 cup chili powder and 1/4 cup masa harina. Mix together well, and cook for 1 more hour.) Serve hot with your favorite tortillas or cooked rice.

Chef Tips

Choose the Right Cut
With more fat than other roasting-style cuts like round, Chuck Roast is the most flavorful cut, making it perfect for slow cooking. Here’s what you should look for when selecting a good chuck roast:

  • Check the date on the label and choose the freshest meat. This is usually the meat with the latest use by date.
  • Look for about 20% fat marbling. While the higher fat content of a chuck roast makes for better slow-cooked dishes, too much fat and you’re going to lose out on that extra-tasty meat!
  • Keep an eye out for a good eye in the meat! Larger eyes typically make for a more flavorful cut.

Why Colorado?
Unless you have a grasp of Spanish language, you may be wondering why a Mexican Chile shares a name with a state located in the middle of the U.S. It’s because Colorado is in fact a Spanish word, meaning “red”, which perfectly describes this hearty, spicy beef dish. There’s also a Mexican Chile Colorado pepper – a pepper that is often used to prepare the Chile Colorado dish – so that may also play a part in the meal’s naming. Whatever the reason, this is one Mexican Chile we’ll be making regularly this fall.



Shop the Sale: Grilled Asparagus with Garlic Butter


Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 10 mins
Serves: 4-6

Everything’s better with butter! Spruce up your next barbeque or family dinner with a healthy and delicious side of garlic-buttery grilled asparagus. Grilled to caramelized perfection, this is asparagus that will melt in your mouth. Pro tip: don’t forget to scrape your grill before cooking once it’s heated (it’s easier to do it hot). And look out for Brookshire’s Butter on sale this week for extra savings!

Ingredients
3 Tbs unsalted butter, melted
3 small cloves garlic, minced or pressed through garlic press (about 1 1/2 tsp)
1 1/2 to 2 lbs thick asparagus spears, ends trimmed
1/4 tsp table salt
Ground black pepper, to taste
Vegetable oil, for greasing grill
Parsley, for garnish
Lemon slices, for serving

Instructions
Combine butter and garlic in small bowl. Brush asparagus with butter mixture. Sprinkle with salt; season with pepper to taste.

When grill is medium-hot, scrape grill grates clean with grill brush. Brush oil on grill grates. Grill asparagus, turning once, until just tender and caramelized, about 2 to 5 minutes per side. (Move asparagus as needed to ensure even cooking.) Transfer asparagus to platter. Garnish with parsley and lemon slices.

Chef Tips

Butter Up
While butter isn’t exactly good for you (on account of all the saturated fat), it’s not all bad either. It’s actually vitamin rich for one thing. Vitamins A, D, E, B12 and K2 are found in high amounts in butter. Butter is also loaded with Butyrate, an anti-inflammatory for the digestive tract and Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA), a fatty acid that may reduce body fat and help with certain health conditions. But, that’s not a free pass to go out and eat all the butter. Use your butter wisely to make healthy dishes (like our grilled asparagus!) and enjoy the best of both worlds.

How to Choose the Best Asparagus
First of all, size doesn’t matter when it comes to asparagus. Thick or thin stalks are more about preference than quality. The main thing to look out for is the appearance of the stalks. They should be firm and straight, with a vibrant green color. Also, look at the tips to make sure they’re closed and not dried out. When selecting fresh white asparagus, watch for the same qualities sans the rich green hue.

Once you get them home, trim the ends and either wrap them in a damp paper towel, place the asparagus in a plastic bag and refrigerate or stand them upright in a jar with an inch of water, cover with a plastic bag and store like a bunch of fresh flowers.

Chef Tips

Why You Should Go Greek
Yogurt’s tangier and thicker cousin has several differences aside from taste and texture. First, it has twice the protein of regular yogurt and about three times the saturated fat. It is lower in sodium and carbohydrates – roughly half that of regular yogurt – and usually has less sugar. It makes for a more filling and satisfying snack or meal, plus you skip all the sugar and salt.

Healthier Greek Yogurt Substitutes
While we’re talking about the health benefits of Greek yogurt, it’s worth noting that it can be used as a substitute for less-than-healthy ingredients like mayonnaise, sour cream and buttermilk. You can make all of your favorite recipes healthier – and often times tastier – by using Greek yogurt. Need some ideas? You can use yogurt as a substitute in baking (batter and frosting), pasta sauces, dips, cheesecake, smoothies, popsicles and pancakes, or ranch dressing, twice-baked potatoes, potato salad – even soup!

Chef Tips

The History Behind Vietnamese Coffee
Most of us here in the United States wouldn’t think of condensed milk as a creamer for our morning cup of Joe, but in many Asian countries where electricity (and therefore refrigerators) are not necessarily commonplace, condensed milk has become the go-to for many culinary uses, including coffee. Introduced by the French in Vietnam, coffee was adopted by the locals and remains a mainstay today, still made with the more-easily found condensed milk than fresh.

DIY Traditional Vietnamese Coffee
While espresso or strongly brewed coffee works well for making Vietnamese coffee, if you want to be uber-authentic, try a traditional Phin Filter. This slow drip coffee maker is a nifty little set up that makes a single cup in under five minutes using a simple filter chamber and coffee press that sits right on top of your mug or cup. You can make your coffee black or pour condensed milk into your cup before brewing your coffee right on top. Pro tip: use a glass cup so you can watch the brewing process! You can buy a brew kit online or at most Asian markets for around $5-$10.

1 tsp freshly cracked black pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1 bunch basil, chopped (about 1/4 cup)

1/2 cup cashew pieces

Chef Tips

Green VS Orange Papaya
If you’re not familiar with papaya or you’re used to eating it fully ripened, you might think green papayas are a totally different fruit. They’re actually the same fruit: green is harvested when the papaya is immature, whereas orange papaya is picked when it’s fully ripened. Green papaya has a mild flavor similar to a cucumber, and is quite crisp. Ripe papaya on the other hand, has a soft texture with a dry, sweet flavor. You can make this salad with green or orange, just make sure the papaya is firm. Papaya that is soft to the touch and a deep orange color is over-ripe or has gone bad.

Papaya Salad Pairs
Papaya Salad is fantastic all by itself, but for those who prefer a heftier meal, there are a number of ways to enjoy papaya salad as part of a grander spread. You can choose to serve it as a refreshing starter to many light, summer dishes, pair it with grilled steak or fish, or with any number of Asian style noodle, curry, satay or rice dishes. For drinks, serve with ice, cold beer or a refreshing white like a Sauvignon Blanc.

Chef Tips

Pick the Best Mango
You might be tempted to choose your mangoes based on color – after all, mangoes that have vibrant orange hue must be ripe, right? Wrong. While color can be a sign of ripeness, it’s not the best indicator. The two things you want to look for are texture and fragrance. Ripe mangoes give slightly when gently squeezed, similar to ripe peaches or avocado, and they have a strong, sweet smell. It will be especially fragrant near the stem, so give it the old sniff test. It should have a very fruity, sweet smell.

The Skinny on Shrimp
Many of us think of shrimp as an indulgence – something that should only be eaten on special occasions – but the truth is, there’s nothing to feel guilty about when it comes to shrimp. Here’s why:

  • They’re high in protein. Three ounces of shrimp provides 20 grams of protein with very little fat.
  • Shrimp are nutrient-rich, packed with selenium, vitamin B12, phosphorus, copper, choline, and iodine.
  • They’re low in calories. For roughly 85-100 calories, you can enjoy 3 ounces of shrimp (about a dozen). Yay for shrimp!

Chef Tips

Know Your Wings
There are actually three parts to a chicken wing: the Drumette (the part of the wing attached to the body), the Flat or Wingette (the middle section) and the tip. Although you can cook wings whole, many recipes call for them to be separated – plus, it makes for easier finger food. The process for cutting up wings is easy. Simply locate the joints on each end of the flat and use a pair of kitchen shears to snip through the center of each joint, and you’re done!

Cooking With Coffee
While most of us love a good cup of coffee to start our day, it’s also a great flavor to use in cooking, particularly meats. Use it in rubs and marinades for meat and fish, or infuse desserts and cakes – especially chocolate ones – with a shot of espresso or your favorite cup of Joe for a decadent mocha flavor.

Chef Tips

Why You Should ‘Ave and Avo
While there are definitely fats you should avoid, the monounsaturated fat found in avocado is not one of them. Monounsaturated fat helps protect against heart disease and lowers blood pressure. Avocadoes also have more soluble fiber than any other fruit, plus they contain a host of minerals such as iron, copper, potassium and folate. They’re also a rich source of vitamin E and carotenes, however, they are high in calories, so moderation is definitely key.

Not Your Ordinary Sandwich
Everything is better with bacon. Even the most basic sandwiches become a more dressed up version with a couple slices of crispy bacon. So imagine what you can do when you take your favorite sandwich up a notch with some gourmet touches. Like mozzarella and bacon on French bread or a grilled Panini with pesto, bacon, cheese and caramelized onions. And why not turn it up for breakfast too, with a crusty baguette filled with bacon, eggs, spinach, tomato and onion for a crunchy, flavor-packed start to your day.
