Shrimp Teriyaki on the Grill

I'm usually a "no shells" guy when it comes to grilled shrimp. I'd prefer to just eat them right off of the stick, all Caveman style and what-not. This shrimp teriyaki marinade contains a lot of sugar though, which tends to caramelize quickly over high heat, so those shells really save the day by p...

How to Make a Ramen Burger

Like any other burger, there are many combinations of toppings that go great with this carb and protein bomb (did I mention how dense this thing is? Wow). I’m not going to go in to toppings ...


Cilantro and Soy Marinated Pork Tenderloin

My favorite thing to do with this cut of meat is to mix up a simple, but potent marinade.  Pork tenderloin soaks up the marinade rather quickly, producing a juicy and really flavorful main course in as little as a two hour soak. Got a few hours before dinner?  Yeah, you have time, let's do it.
