Haba beans - Went looking for butter beans but HEB didn't have any. Decided to try something new - haba beans

Beans, onions, garlic, and pork bits from the freezer

Browning the pork

Seasoning in

Beans in - after coming to a boil, reduced to low heat, covered and cooked for five hours - beans fell apart :)

Spinach, garlic, pecans, bacon, red onion, blue cheese

Cedar planked the spinach :)

Plank was smokin - gave a nice flavor to the spinach

This is what happens when you put a plank in at 750 dome :lol:

Made a sauce for the scallops - 4 oz tequila, 4 oz cointreau, zest and juice of an orange, 1/4 cup brown sugar. Reduced to 1/4 cup - nice


  • spinach still turned out! good looking scallops, sigh.......

    Cointreau and tequila sounds really interesting. I'm thinking on duck. Brilliant man!

    love0029.gif  I thought your breakfast looked good! WOW, you even make spinach look good! The sauce for the scallops sounds amazing. Very nice job Frank, thank you for sharing.  love0029.gif


  • The spinach was outstanding Kari - the scorched plank gave it an extra kick
  • You da man LS - I was wondering what to do with the left over sauce. Got a couple duck breast in the freezer - it will go really well with duck.
  • Thanks Blair. A first with the haba beans - not sure if they are intended to be cooked so long, but they were nice.

    Morning Franklyn. Still alive and still working straights. Man that looks great. Especially the spinich and scallops. Never seen spinich done up like that but if its got bacon in it, its got to be good! :laugh: Ever tryed the scallop glaze over rice? Sounds kind of good lightly drizzled over basamic! :whistle:
  • Dean - Not sure about rice but would be good on vanilla ice cream or grits B)
  • That sounds and looks delicious, Frank. I love the idea of cooking the spinach on the plank. Fantastic! Scallops and sauce look awesome as well.
