Let’s start off with a quick refresher — Uniquely J is Jet’s new brand of upgraded everyday essentials. There’s everything from organic coffee to napkins to snacks, but today we’re talking sauces and oils. So, right off the bat, these are good. Like, really good. We clear on that? Great. Let’s dive in.
If you’re a person and you don’t have a bottle of avocado oil in your kitchen, then what are you even doing? Its high smoke point makes it extremely versatile when cooking and it also rocks as a finishing oil. But you already knew that. Here’s something you probably didn’t know — you can use it to make your own avocado mayonnaise. Here’s how to do it:
Take one egg yolk (at room temperature) and whisk it with 2 tsps of lemon juice, 1 tsp of Dijon mustard, ¼ tsp salt, and a tsp of water. Go until it’s nice and frothy. Then, while whisking constantly, pour in ¾ cup of the avocado oil bit by bit until the mixture emulsifies and thickens.
Now put that on your avocado toast and bite it.
You cannot host a party without salsa. Okay, that’s literally not true, but it’s safe to say that you really wouldn’t want to. Imagine it — your guests have arrived, there’s a big bowl of tortilla chips on the table, and nothing to dip them in. People would walk away thinking you didn’t like them. Now imagine that scene, but with some of our organic medium salsa. Now with every chip, your guests get to enjoy a tasty deep while being reassured of your positive feelings towards them.
Three cheeses doesn’t cut it. Five cheeses is going overboard. But four cheeses? *Chef’s kiss*
The first time I visited my future wife in her home state of Texas, she took me to Goode Company Barbeque to try some of the native cuisine. It was awe-inspiring — where had this food been all my life? Before that, I’d always thought “barbeque” was that thing your dad did Memorial Day weekend when he proved that he could cook, he just usually chose not to. Anyway, this sauce reminds me of that experience.
To create your own Texas-style barbecue pulled pork, start by pouring a teaspoon of vegetable oil into the bottom of your slow cooker or Dutch oven. Then put in a 4-pound pork shoulder, 1 cup of our barbecue sauce, ½ chicken broth, ½ cup apple cider vinegar, ¼ cup of light brown sugar, 1 tablespoon of mustard, 1 tablespoon of Worcester sauce, a chopped onion, and 2 crushed cloves of garlic. Set your slow cooker to High or put your Dutch oven into a 300 degree preheated oven. Next, go binge-watch a show for about 5 or 6 hours. Take out your pork and use two forks to shred it, then put it on a potato bun with some extra sauce or just eat it by the spoonful.
This sauce is the key to getting your Thai food fix without going to a restaurant. Just wrap a couple of well-seasoned chicken breasts in tin foil, stick them in a 425 degree oven for 35-40 minutes, take them out (be careful of the steam) and douse them in this sauce. Add some rice or rice noodles to round out the dish.
