El Charro Barbacoa (Bbq) Recipe
2 lb beef roast (eye of round or
1 brisket) -- cut into 6
2 qt water
1/4 cup garlic puree -- *
1 1/4 oz pickling spice -- in
1 cheesecloth pouch
1 tsp salt
1 bbq sauce---
4 tbsp oil
1/2 cup green chiles -- roast, peel,
1 white onion -- chopped
1/4 cup garlic puree -- *
1 tbsp vinegar
1 cup reserved meat broth
8 oz canned jalapeno peppers --
1 sliced thinly
1 tbsp juice from canned jalapenos
1 bay leaf
1/2 cup salsa de chile colorado
1 tsp pepper
1/2 cup green olives -- minced
4 large tomatoes -- chopped
1/2 cup wine -- red or white
* Garlic Puree - peel 8 whole heads of garlic by smashing the cloves
with the side of a wide knife; the peel will slip off easily then.
Put the peeled garlic in a blender with about 2 cups of water, and
puree. Drain, if necessary, and store in a tightly closed glass jar
in the refrigerator.
At weddings, showers, saint's days celebrations and other special
occasions a hostess was sure to serve small tortillas or gorditas
(which are fatter, or mas gorda, than tortillas), one filled with
beans, the other with BARBACOA, along with shredded cappage, dressed
with vinegar and oil, and a salsa of some kind. Often nacatamales
(cocktail size tamales), perhaps filled with chicken, potato, raisins
and olives, would make up part of the plate offered. And no party was
complete without at least one verse of "Las Mananitas", the Mother's
Day song, or bizcochuelos, buttery cookies shaped like wreaths and
with the unforgettable flavor of anise.
In an 8-quart stock pot, bring water to the boil, add meat, garlic
puree, spice pouch and salt. Bring to the boil again, skim scum,
reduce heat and simmer 1 hour, or until the meat is tender,
frequently removing scum. Remove meat and cool enough to handle.
Discard spice pouch; reserve liquid. With fingers, shred the meat
In a large skillet, heat oil and saute green chile, onion, garlic
puree, vinegar, broth and jalapeno. Add bay leaf. Add shredded meat
and the rest of the ingredients. Simmer until flavors blend, about 10
Place seasoned meat in a large, shallow baking pan and bake at 300
degrees for about 1 hour, stirring occasionally.

Food Tips of the Week
In planning a meal plan, the important thing is to try to cut down your ingestion of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
Some lower carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Replace sugar with a low carb substitute such as splenda.
Most recipes that require sugar can be changed to make use of a sugar substitute like splenda. It doesn't weigh the same so you will have to expirement with it and it might not be perfect in every case, but it gives very good results once you have it cracked.
* Use low carb chocolate bars for chocolate muffins.
Once you have converted your most popular chocolate chip cookie or chocolate muffins recipe using soya flour, you really don't want to add in those high carb standard chocolate. Chop up a low carbohydrate choccie bar into little pieces and use that in its place.
Foods rich in lycopene
(includes guava, red bell peppers & tomato puree)
The phytochemical lycopene is a non-synthetic coloring agent and one of the phytochemical group known as 'carotenids'. It is the reason for the red hue of many food types.
Intrestingly, unlike numerous healthy agents, this useful phytochemical is not damaged if it is cooked, rather it is actually improved by being heated.
Lycoprene's most interesting advantage is that it works as an antioxidant and seems to be of use in the battle to lower the risk of cancer.
Lycopene is the strongest quencher of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It is also thought by many experts to block the progression of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
