Onions & Peppers a la Pig Pen
Pig Pen's Original Seasoning is one of our favorite dry rubs for chicken and pork, but its food-friendly, salty-sweet blend of spices works well as a seasoning for steaks, eggs, veggies and more. Our friend Cliff came up with the first version of this recipe when he sauteed some sliced onions in olive oil and Pig Pen's Seasoning until the onions were soft and golden, and served them as an accompaniment to grilled steaks. Tonight Greg came up with the following recipe as an accompaniment to grilled venison burgers. You can make this recipe on the stovetop by sauteeing the peppers and onions instead of grilling them.
2 Tbs Olive Oil
1 1/2 Tbs Pig Pen's Original Seasoning
2 Bell Peppers (we used green ones, but red or yellow would also work), sliced into strips
2 Medium red onions, sliced
Grilling instructions: Combine all ingredients in a bowl or reseasable plastic bag and mix to coat the vegetables evenly. Grill over medium heat until the vegetables soften and the onions start to turn golden (about 30 mins).
Stovetop instructions: Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat, careful not to over heat (you don't want the oil to smoke). Add vegetables and sprinkle with Pig Pen's Seasoning, stirring to coat evenly. Sautee until vegetables soften and onions start to turn golden.
PS: I topped one of my venison burgers with Pluto's Paradise Potion instead of my usual ketchup - man, was that burger good!!
