Converting Vegetarians

There's a great article over at Grist right now on the holy BLT. It describes how to make the perfet bacony sandwich and discusses bacon's impressive propensity for converting vegetarians. If you're a veggie worrying that delicious slices of pig might tempt your otherwise-ironclad resolve, don't worry - remember that all Bacon Salt is 100% vegetarian and that the Hickory flavour is even suitable for you vegans. Hurrah!

New recipe

We put up a new recipe today - Bacon Salt quesadillas and absolutely delicious they are too. With our new products just in we'd actually recommend deviating from the recipe slightly - try using Cheddar Bacon Salt and see if you can get away with using slightly less cheese.

Quesadillas: Bacon Salt Edition

  • 500 g tender beef steak, cubed
  • 8 large flour tortillas
  • 100 g Cheddar cheese, grated
  • 150 g Asadero cheese, grated
  • 2 Serrano chilis, finely sliced
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 bell peppers, diced
  • 4 small onions, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed and chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 250 ml sour cream
  • 250 ml hot salsa
  • 3 tsp Peppered Bacon Salt
Marinade the beef overnight in the garlic, chilli and 2 tsp of Peppered Bacon Salt. Pour the beef and the marinade into a oiled and heated pan and sear the meat. Add the onions, peppers and tomatoes and fry until softened. Meanwhile, warm a tortilla in a large frying pan and sprinkle a quarter of the cheeses on it. When the cheese starts melting, spread a quarter of the beef mixture on top and flip over to cook the other side of the tortilla. Do the same for the rest of the tortillas filled with cheese and beef before cutting into wedges and serving with sour cream and salsa.
