Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Strawberry Habanero pork loin

edited October 2012 in Pork
Took a small jar of strawberry preserves, 1/2 cup of honey and two chopped habaneros and put all of that in a sauce pot. Brought it to a simmer and put in the fridge overnight. I'm trying it on pork loin tonight and I'm gonna try it on some wings later in the week. I hope it won't be too hot!

  • That sounds great.  Should not be too hot if you de-viened the habs.  The sugar should offset some of the heat.

    That sounds great.  I'm a little skeerd of the habs...but I love mixing spicy things with jelly.  The sriracha/orange marmalade wings have been my go-to wing recipe for a while.

    I waited tables at a wing joint in college.  3 guys come in, and and one guy explains he has a bet going on.  He is gonna pay the other two 50 bucks if they could polish off 50 "habenero hot" wings.  I told the cooks so they got together and got evil.  They pulled the seeds from a bunch of habs and boiled them and poured it in the sauce.  Poor guys literally had tears streaming down their face.  Needless to say the guy kept his 50 and I got a nice tip ;).


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    It turned out pretty good. Just enough heat to go with the good strawberry flavor. Decided to make sandwiches out of it. I toasted some buns, added some sharp provolone, peperoncinis and a little Duke's mayo. Next time I try this, I'll add more habanero.image

    A serious skill for any cook, Egg or not, is to evaluate the ingredients and improvise for the best outcome.  This sounds and looks good.

    Thank you for trying to make me feel better Doc! My photography skills ARE lacking but I feel like my egging skills are getting better. I'm just gonna keep on practicing both! The combination of sweet strawberry and spicy habanero did turn out good even though I may not have presented it well. :D

    Hey, Hashmaker, was just talking about your sauce with the spouse, and we both think you should try some dried peri-peri in the strawberry sauce next time.  That is our most go to good heat pepper.

    Don't want to turn this into an ad, so PM if you want to know what I would suggest.

    OK, I got in trouble for this awhile back.  That was not on purpose.
