Cobb Salad Platter

Cobb Salad Platter

Cobb salad platter filled up with soft boiled eggs, crispy bacon, mini rainbow tomatoes, crumbled blue cheese, herbs galore (think chives, basil + dill), grilled chicken thighs and mixed with green goddess dressing. I love to give it a good mix to get some of that yolk throughout the salad with the dressing - easy nourishing dinners are going on full speed for the upcoming summertime.

Game Changer: At Home Pork Bulgogi with Bacon Cheese Fondue

1211_lindseyeatsla-12.jpg

KBBQ is one of my restaurant staples, there is nothing better than heading to Korean barbecue, eating banchan and ordering up (one of my favorites) bulgogi. Bulgogi is a thinly sliced marinaded meat with pears, garlic, ginger and soy sauce. I love getting this and what’s awesome is you can totally make this @ home. I paired the FARMER JOHN® Pork Tenderloin w a All-Natural Bacon Cheese Fondue. 

Some, not all, Korean BBQ spots, also serve some of their meats with cheese, where you watch it melt with your cooked meat to dip in like fondue. I notched it up by adding some FARMER JOHN® All-Natural Bacon. Although not as traditional, the smells in the air of your kitchen, and taste once it’s ready, will make you truly feel like you just stepped into your favorite KBBQ spot. 

1211_lindseyeatsla-14.jpg

FARMER JOHN® Pork Tenderloin Bulgogi

  • 1 pear grated
  • 5-6 cloves of garlic grated 
  • 1 tsp ginger grated
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds 
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp oil 
  • FARMER JOHN® Pork Tenderloin

Directions:

  1. Slice Farmer John Pork Tenderloin in thin strips, prepping it for your bulgogi marinade.
  2. Prepare your marinade items: 1 pear grated, 5-6 cloves of garlic grated, 1 tsp ginger grated, 1/4 cup soy sauce, 1 tsp red pepper flakes, 2 tsp sesame oil, 1 tsp sesame seeds, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp pepper, 1 tsp oil. Add meat and set aside to marinate until rest of ingredients are ready.
  3. Once you have everything ready, get a pan hot with oil and start to grill your marinaded bulgogi. You can do this over a BBQ flame or you can use a pan on your stove, both work fine. 
  4. Grill about 6-7 minutes on each side, until charred and cooked through.

FARMER JOHN® All-Natural Bacon Cheese Fondue

  • 3-4 tsp of FARMER JOHN® All-Natural Bacon (1/2 for inside the fondue, 1/2 for garnish) 
  • 1 cup Gruyere Cheese (shredded)
  • 1 cup Swiss Cheese (shredded) or you can use Emmentaler or Cheddar
  • 2 garlic cloves 
  • 1 T white wine 
  • 1 tsp dijon vinegar 
  • 1 tsp flour 

Directions:

  1. Cube and crisp bacon. 
  2. Shred cheeses and get a pan hot with white wine, dijon and 2 garlic cloves. 
  3. Coat shredded cheese in flour and slowly add in melted cheese in batches. Keep mixing until a creamy fondue sauce forms, add in bacon and mix before it’s completely finished. Keep on low heat until ready to eat.
