Maximum Flavors in Minimal Time
from Chef Christopher Britton
I spent the day at a food show revealing our new Latin Flavor Concentrates. Two very simple dishes of note were Adobo-rubbed Pork Carnitas with Poblano Slaw, and Shrimp Ceviche. Our customers were amazed at how much flavor could be extracted from two dishes that took less than 30 minutes of actual prep time. The pork shoulder was rubbed with our Red Chile Adobo Concentrate and No Added MSG Chicken Base, stewed in a slow cooker for 5-hours, picked and reheated with more Adobo and the remaining stock. It was then topped with a retail-ready, shredded slaw mix infused with our Fire-Roasted Poblano Concentrate. The Ceviche utilized 51-60 cooked shrimp, fresh-packed salsa from the grocers produce department, fresh-squeezed lime juice, a touch of the No Added MSG Shrimp Base and our Fire-Roasted Jalapeno Concentrate.
