Morita Braised Beef Brisket

Morita Braised Beef Brisket

Cozy, slow-cooker meals, that are easy to put together in the morning and enjoy for dinner are a staple in my house as the winter weather sets in. Typically, this brisket is perfectly timed for a hearty Sunday lunch. Put the brisket in the slow-cooker Saturday evening, shred and toss with sauce Sunday morning and tuck in around noon. The Chipotle + Espresso + Morita Hot Sauce adds so much character to the meat, reminiscent of a truly smoked brisket! The peach and pepper spread adds a sweet heat to the sauce, which in our house is much preferred to barbecue sauce. Leftovers keep well and turn into a lovely open faced sandwich, or taco’s any night of the week.  

Cranberry Galette

Cranberry Galette

As much as apple pie will probably always be the fan favourite, cranberry sauce is the showstopper on the holiday table. This galette is all the best parts of apple pie and all the best parts of cranberry sauce rolled into one. Tart and tangy from the overabundance cranberries mixed with orange zest, the Cranberry, Sour Cherry & Port Preserve pulls it all together making every bite as good as the last.

Don’t be worried about how high the cranberries are piled on the pastry, they cook down into a jammy consistency held together by the preserve, just be sure to let it cool before cutting, so the cranberries have a chance to set.

Apple and Rhubarb Stuffed Pork Loin

Apple and Rhubarb Stuffed Pork Loin

Elegant enough for a celebratory meal and simple enough or a weekend dinner, this pork roast is a family favourite. The stuffing keeps for a few days in the fridge, making it even easier to assemble and have an amazing roast on the table. Making it can also be family activity, to having little hands help tie up the twine and spread the stuffing evenly over the loin. The more helping hands, the tastier the outcome and joy around the table.
