A Year in the Life

28 Jun

It’s Saucy’s one-year anniversary. Pinch us.

We have unloaded a boatload of hoarded tattered recipe clippings into this electronic file. Huzzah!

Our most popular posts are a mixed bag. Clearly, there are about a million of you searching for Rebar’s almond burger. While we haven’t found a recipe that stands up to them, we’ve uncovered some of the important ingredients.

Another most frequently searched post is not for the yummiest summer Diggity Dogs barbecue recipe, but for the dancing hot dog and bun art above them. People! We hope you tried the recipe at your White Trash Theatre night.

Ginger fried beef is another top hit leading searchers here. Since we posted a deep-fried, battered version, we have discovered a batter-free ginger beef that was just as sweet, spicy and chewy. Hopefully we can crack that one and post a recipe.

We thought it only appropriate to celebrate our first-year milestone by turning to the first recipe we posted — which is precisely the point of having archives of tried and true recipes. Double huzzah.

Stampede time is nearly upon us, and so we have prepared for all those late nights with friends after the chucks with barbecued brisket buns.

We freeze them in portions and leave them to thaw for our midnight return. Perfectly paired with parkerhouse rolls and cold beer on the balcony.

Seared brisket before...


A blurry, but finished, product:
A few notes to remember. We cooked this for five hours on low in a crockpot and let it rest in there while we took off to see John Pizzarelli in concert. Don’t be tempted to add more barbecue sauce. The amount called for is plenty.
We are set for late Stampede nights.
