Cooking Recipes

Swiss Steak

Sprinkle 1 1/2 lb. round steak with salt and pepper. Dredge both sides with flour and pound well with a mallet or potato masher. Keep pounding and sprinkle with flour until steak will not absorb any more. Melt a couple of tbsp. drippings in heavy frying pan and when hot, add steak and brown on both sides. Add 2 or 3 sliced onions, one green pepper, chopped, and cover with Ben Jack Larado’s Bloody Mary Drink Mix. Cover tightly and simmer 1 1/2 hours. Add more Bloody Mary Mix if liquid is needed. This can be cooked in the oven at 350 degrees as well. Serve with mashed potatoes or rice.

 

Ben Jack Larado’s

Beef Jerky

8 lbs. lean rump roast, sliced 1/8 inch thick by your local butcher

1 - 750 ml bottle of Ben Jack Larado’s Bloody Mary Drink Mix

1 tbsp. pure garlic powder            1 tbsp. coarse ground black pepper

1 tbsp. soy sauce (no M.S.G.)      3 tbsp. Worcestershire 

2 tbsp. liquid smoke

The dehydrator should be set at 145 degrees and needs to have a circulation fan.

Pour Bloody Mary Mix into an extra large glass or crock bowl. Add garlic powder, black pepper, soy sauce, liquid smoke and Worcestershire sauce. Stir lightly, then place the bowl in microwave oven for 3 1/2 minutes on high. Remove and stir until all the garlic powder is blended.

The most important part of the recipe.

Place each slice of beef flat and straight into the Bloody Mary Mix Mixture, immersing it completely. Keeping the slices flat will make loading the dehydrator much easier. Cover the bowl and place in refrigerator to marinate overnight or about 8 hours.

To dehydrate the beef

Lay each piece flat on the drying shelves. Do not let the slices of meat touch. After loading each shelf, generously sprinkle with coarse ground black pepper. Drying time should be between 5 and 6 hours.

 

Rosy Pork Chops

4 medium pork chops                                       

750 ml bottle Ben Jack Larado’s Bloody Mary Drink Mix

Oil for browning  

Brown pork chops on both side in small amount of oil. Cover with Bloody Mary Mix. Simmer 30 - 45 minutes or until done. (Don’t forget to eat the pickled asparagus while meat is simmering.) Serve with mashed potatoes or rice. Use pan drippings for gravy. Can be thickened with 1 tbsp. cornstarch if desired.

 

Spicy Hot Wings

10 whole chicken wings            

1/2 cup butter

3 - 5 tbsp. Ben Jack Larado’s Bloody Mary Drink Mix

1/4 tsp. paprika

Cut wings and discard wing tips. Place wings in greased 15x10x1” pan. Combine butter, Bloody Mary Mix, garlic salt and paprika. Pour over wings. Bake at 375 degrees 30 minutes. Turn wings over, bake 20 - 25 minutes more or until juices run clear.

2 - 5.5 oz. bottles Ben Jack Larado’s Bloody Mary Drink Mix
