mmmmm...looks good. I made a pass at making Pad Tai last night. Not too bad an attempt, then my phone ate the pictures.

Oh yeah, you can go Hawaiian with this by switching out the lemon for fresh-cut pineapple and its juice.

The other day, my son, my brother, and I were having a major discussion. Out of the 4 major meats (beef, pork, chicken & turkey*) which would be the easiest to do without? Turkey was the hands down winner there. Then the more difficult question, which would be the hardest to give up? I'm leaning towards pork - any pork that is deep fried, barbequed, or smoked is just heaven on a plate. I don't think I could live without bacon, pork chops, loin, pulled pork, or ribs (beef ribs are nowhere near as good) My brother said he could not live without an occasional beef steak and my son said he needed a cheeseburger once in a while. Which got me to thinking - why not make pork burgers?

So my question to you is, have you tried out any ground pork? Pork just seasons so much better than beef. I picked up a couple pounds of ground pork and I'm going to try them out this week. My mind is just reeling with the possibilities - Chipotle, Caribbean Jerk, Cajun, Teriyaki, Chopped bacon & liquid smoke, Greek seasoning, mmmmmmm What do you think?

*lamb and seafood really aren't even worth considering

The original version of Hamburgers from Germany uses pork instead of beef - it tastes more like flat sausage on a bun.

It's a bit too fatty for my tastes, so I've made it this way before, 1/2 and 1/2 with beef, it freaking delicious:

1 pkg. extremely low-fat ground beef
1 pkg. ground pork
1/2 to 1 cup water
2 tblsp. olive oil
1 egg
lots of spices
breadcrumbs
1/4 cup super-fine chopped onion
1/4 cup super-fine chopped mushrooms

Now get your hands in there and squish it all together until it's SMOOTH. Form into patties, if you separate them with saran wrap you can freeze them too. Grill lightly. It tastes amazing.

I think Wednesday will be Ground Pork Experimentation Night this week. I made some Grapefruit Sorbet with Agave Nectar tonight, it was pretty good. Just grapefruit juice, water, and agave. I think I'll try Donga Punch Sorbet soon using cinnamon syrup in place of the agave - sounds delish to me! Add some lime juice and maybe a little rum but don't want to lower the freezing point too much

Donga Punch Sorbet:

1 1/2 cups ruby grapefruit juice
1 cup homemade cinnamon syrup
2 cups water
1 ounce lime juice
1 ounce rum

I made half a recipe, it was enough for 2 generous servings. You can taste all the flavors, of course the grapefruit and cinnamon are predominant but the rum and lime are there too. I was going to skip the rum but Professor G suggested it might help smooth the texture. Very refreshing, I will definitely be making it again this summer.
