Beefer’s Best Turkey Legs with Veggie Medley

Beefer’s Best Turkey Legs with Veggie Medley

Did you know the Beefer crisps turkey legs to perfection? Our Beefer’s Best Turkey Legs will win your palate with depth of flavor and crispy turkey skin. We keep it simple with a marinade of garlic, smoked salt, and sage then pop it into a sous vide for 6-hours, before heading straight to the infrared heat of the Beefer. The scrumptious turkey legs are served on a healthy and absolutely delicious Veggie Medley. A perfect Thanksgiving dish for keto, paleo, and gluten-free guests.

Ingredients for Sous Vide Turkey Legs:

  • 6 large garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • Zest from 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon Cooper Duper Smoked Salt
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sage powder
  • 2 tablespoons garlic oil or oil of preference
  • 2 (1.5 lbs) turkey legs

Ingredients for Veggie Medley

  • 3 Napa Cabbage leaves, shredded
  • 3/4 cup baby carrots, chopped
  • 1 large parsnip, peeled, chopped
  • 1/2 white or yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 1 long sweet red pepper or 1/2 cup red bell peppers, chopped
  • 1/2 jalapeño, chopped, or desired amount
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley or favorite holiday herb
  • Lemon

STEP 1 In a sous vide approved vacuum-seal bag, combine garlic, lemon zest, smoked salt, sea salt, black pepper, sage powder and cooking oil. Massage plastic bag to mix ingredients. Add turkey legs and seal bags per sous vide instructions. Sous vide turkey legs for 6-8 hours at 148°F:

image002

STEP 2 After the turkey legs have cooked 6 hours remove from sous vide and blot dry. It is beneficial for the turkey legs to air dry (for crispier skin) while preparing the Veggie Medley:

image003

STEP 3 Combine the cabbage, carrots, parsnip, and onion in a 8-cup microwave safe bowl. Add 1/3 cup water, and cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Microwave the vegetables on high for 4 minutes. Remove the veggie bowl from the microwave, and allow to steam 2 minutes before removing the plastic wrap:

image004

STEP 4 After removing the plastic wrap from the bowl, immediately add 1 tablespoon of butter to the hot vegetables. Pour veggies into a Beefer Drip Tray:

image005

STEP 5 Combine the sweet red pepper, jalapeño, parsley and 1 tablespoon butter in a Beefer Deep Gastro Tray. Heat the Beefer on high for 5 minutes.

image006

STEP 6 Adjust the Beefer heat to medium-high. Place Deep Gastro Tray with sweet red pepper medley onto the 3rd shelf. Grill red pepper medley for 45 seconds, turning the tray halfway through cook time. The sweet red pepper medley is done cooking once the peppers are lightly charred, and softened:

image007

STEP 7 Pour the cabbage medley into the sweet red pepper medley and stir. Add a squeeze of lemon juice and salt to taste:

image008

STEP 8 Place veggie medley on the bottom of the Beefer to capture all of the turkey juice! So delicious!

image009

STEP 9 Place 1 or 2 turkey legs, on a Beefer grill grate. Brown turkey legs, on the center shelf under medium-high infrared heat:

image010

STEP 10 Rotate the turkey legs with the Beefer Tongs every 20-30 seconds for 5 minutes. The turkey legs are done once they are brown and crispy!

image011

STEP 11 Pour Veggie Medley on a medium serving platter. Top with the Beefer’s Best Turkey Legs. Sprinkle with parsley and enjoy!

image012

Tip 1 Don’t be afraid to brown the turkey leg until crispy. By cooking the turkey leg sous vide, the meat stays moist and can take the extreme heat of the Beefer:

image013

TIP 2 Select a medium platter to make the Turkey and Veggie Medley look more grandeur than on a large platter:

Beefer Spicy Pork and Apple Pumpkin Rings

Beefer Spicy Pork and Apple Pumpkin Rings

What flavors are you craving this Fall? Let’s feast on Beefer roasted apples and pumpkin seasoned with warm spices. But let’s now stop there! Toss the apples and pumpkin with grilled maple pork tenderloin then tuck into a grilled pumpkin rings! Fun, Festive and oh so Fall!

Spicy Pork and Apple Pumpkin Rings Ingredients:

  • 1 (1.5 lbs) pork tenderloin
  • 1 tablespoons canola or avocado oil
  • 1 small pumpkin
  • 1 large green apple
  • 1 jalapeno, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha hot sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Chinese 5-spice
  • Lime zest

 Helpful Beefer Grill Tools for this recipe:

Not all pumpkins are the same! Look for a small “pumpkin pie” edible pumpkin not a decorative pumpkin. Acorn Squash is a great year-round substitute for seasonal pumpkin:

Spicy Pork and Apple Pumpkin Rings

STEP 1 Trim and discard the silver skin and excess fat from the pork tenderloin:

image004

STEP 2  Cut pork tenderloin into approximately large under 2-inch chunks, and drizzle with oil:

image005

STEP 3 With a large cutlery knife, cut the pumpkin crosswise into (4) 1-inch thick rings. Remove and discard the seeds and membranes from each pumpkin ring:

image006

TIP 2  Use a curved or grapefruit spoon to remove the membranes from pumpkin:

image007

STEP 4 Place pumpkin rings in a microwave safe large bowl, sprinkle 1 1/2 teaspoons smoking salt and 2 tablespoons water.  Cover bowl with plastic wrap and microwave on high for 4 minutes. After cook time, allow pumpkin rings to steam under the plastic wrap for 2 minutes. Uncover pumpkin rings and pat dry. Meanwhile, heat the Beefer Infrared Grill:

image008

STEP 5 Ignite the Beefer Grill to high heat for 5 minutes. Turn knob halfway down to medium. Place a Beefer Drip Tray on the bottom of the Beefer. Brush pumpkin rings with cooking oil. Divide pumpkin rings onto 2 Beefer grill grates:

image009

STEP 6 Insert grates onto the center and fourth shelves. Grill 25 seconds or until the pumpkin ring on the top shelf is lightly browned. Use the Beefer handle to pull trays out. Turn the top grate in opposite direction; leave bottom tray. Grill pumpkin rings for 20 seconds or until lightly browned:

image010

STEP 7 Repeat grilling steps with the pumpkin rings on the center shelf. Remove pumpkin rings after browning on both sides. Transfer from the grates. Chop one pumpkin ring into small bites, discarding the skin, and set aside:

image011

TIP 3 Allow space between pork cubes for plenty of air flow:

image012

STEP 8 Arrange the pork cubes on 2 Beefer grill grates. Brown pork using the same steps as the pumpkin rings were grilled. The pork will take a few more 25 second intervals than the pumpkin rings:

image013

STEP 9 Once the pork reaches an internal temperature of 140°F degrees remove from Beefer. Let pork rest 5 minutes, and cut into bite size pieces. The pork will complete cooking in the apple and jalapeño glaze:

image014

TIP 4 Pork tenderloin does not have the fat to create a crust as does a steak. We recommend lightly browning:

image015

STEP 10 Peel and discard skin from apple. Chop the apple into 1/2-inch pieces, and the jalapeño into 1/4-inch pieces, and combine in a Beefer drip tray:

image016

TIP 5 Chop as much jalapeño as your plate can handle!

image017

 

STEP 11 Place tray with apples and jalapeño on the center shelf, and grill for 20 seconds, turn tray, and cook for 20 more seconds. Add butter and cook until butter has melted:

image018

STEP 12 Whisk maple syrup, lime juice, sriracha, salt, and Chinese 5-spice; pour over grilled apples and jalapeño:

image019

TIP 6 For added flavor, grill the apples and jalapeño in the maple syrup, for 20 seconds, to lightly caramelize:

image020

STEP 13 Combine glazed apples, reserved pumpkin chunks, chopped pork in Beefer’s deep gastro tray, and sprinkle with smoked sea salt:

image021

STEP 14 Place pork tray onto center shelf. Grill for 20 seconds, rotate tray around, around 20 seconds or until pork is 145°F degrees:

image022

TIP 7 If that much pumpkin ring isn’t your thing, chop the pumpkin rings, discarding the skin, and toss with the pork and apples. Sprinkle with cilantro:

image023

TO SERVE Place each pumpkin ring onto an individual plate. Sprinkle with cilantro and serve. Pepper and salt to taste:

Spicy Cajun Lime Wings from the Beefer

Spicy Cajun Lime Wings from the Beefer

Why is it that we always want what we can’t have?! People with curly hair want straight hair. People with straight hair want curly hair. Blondes want to be brunettes and brunettes want to be blondes. And all I want to eat right now is chicken wings! Staffing shortages are abundant right now and chicken processing plants are no exception. This is causing shortages in stores of specialty cuts of chicken, including WINGS!!! NOOOOOO!!!!!!! I managed to find some frozen, uncooked wings in the grocery store freezer, so the cravings for my favorite finger food were about to be satisfied. I wanted to make them simple, spicy and delicious, so I grabbed some Cajun seasoning, butter, limes, paid for my groceries, and ran out of the store as if I’d just won the lottery! I couldn’t wait for the fryer OR the air fryer, the oven, the grill, or the skillet, so I fired up the Beefer! I’d never “Beefed” wings before, but my baby has never let me down, so I just threw them onto a Grill Grate, and slid them into the bottom of The Beefer. After about 15 minutes, and turning them every 3-4 minutes, they were golden, crispy and PERFECTLY cooked! I tossed them in the butter, Cajun seasoning and lime. Less than an hour after starting, my family and I had cooked up and eaten 2 lbs. of chicken wings! Finger foods for all…thanks to the Beefer!

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs. chicken wings and drumettes
  • 4 tbsp. butter
  • 2 tbsp. Cajun Seasoning
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  1. Heat the Beefer to high heat. Place a Beefer Gastro Tray in the bottom.
  2. Arrange 6-8 wings onto a Beefer Grill Grate (you’ll need to do this in 2-3 batches):
image002
3. Place the Grill Grate in the bottom of the Beefer, on top of the Gastro Tray.  Grill for about 15 minutes, rotating the wings every 3-4 minutes.
image003

4. Internal temperature should reach 165 degrees before removing from the heat:

image004

5. Transfer the wings to a large mixing bowl. Toss with the butter, Cajun seasoning and lime juice:

image005
  1. Transfer to a serving dish and finish with the chopped green onions and any remaining lime juice:

Salsa Verde Halibut Tacos made with a Beefer

Salsa Verde Halibut Tacos made with a Beefer

The Beefer is world renown for the magical things it can do to chunks of red beef. But don’t let the ingenuity of the Beefer Infrared Grill be limited to just beef. The world’s best flavor crust can be applied to almost any protein in the Beefer. In fact, we could’ve just as easily named the unit the Fisher, or the Shrimper, or the Porker, but they didn’t have the same ring as the Beefer.

  • 1 poblano pepper, cut lengthwise in half, discard stem and seeds
  • 1 jalapeño, cut lengthwise in half, discard stem and seeds
  • 10 tomatillos

image009

 

STEP 8 Lightly toss flaked halibut with the salsa verde, until well coated with salsa.

image010

STEP 9 Place shredded cabbage into a Beefer drip tray:

image011

STEP 10 Mix ingredients for Tasty Fish Taco White Sauce until well blended. Set aside:

image012

From the Beefer: Steak and cheese? Yes, please!

Steak and cheese? Yes, please! From the Beefer

There’s no denying that steak and cheese go together like peas and carrots or peanut butter and jelly, but today we’re adding a third, loyal and trusting companion…the Beefer! Its 1500 degrees of fire is the perfect partner for giving your steaks that sizzling sear and giving your melted cheese that serious string! It only takes a few minutes to ready this recipe…in fact it probably takes longer to slice the cherry tomatoes than it does to finish the rest of the dish! After a quick sear on both sides of the room-temperature tri-tip, simply allow it to rest outside The Beefer while it gets topped with sliced mozzarella and heirloom cherry tomatoes. Place it back inside the Beefer for about a minute to finish the steak and melt the cheese. Drizzle it with olive oil, salt and pepper, and a healthy dusting of chopped, fresh basil. That’s it! Add some balsamic vinegar, roasted garlic, and any other trimmings you wish. This is a GREAT way to start the party with a slice or two for an appetizer, or a perfect petite entree for your guests!

Ingredients

  • 1 tri-tip roast, carved into 4 steaks, about 4-6 ounces each
  • 4 oz. sliced fresh, mozzarella cheese
  • 16-20 heirloom cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • 2 tbsp. Chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tbsp. Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp. Cooper’s Provisions smoked sea salt and pepper 

Italian Caprese Tri-Tip Steaks

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 3 minutes
  • Servings: 4

Allow the steaks to come up to room temperature and heat your Beefer infrared grill to high heat.

image002

Place the steaks onto a Beefer Grill Grate and place the grate on the 3rd or 4th rack, keeping the steaks very close to the flame:

image003

Sear on each side for about 1 minute and remove from the heat.  While the steaks rest outside of the Beefer, cover them with thin slices of the mozzarella cheese and heirloom cherry tomatoes.

After about 5 minutes, place the steaks back into the Beefer to finish and melt the cheese for about 1 additional minute (steak internal temperature should reach 135 degrees for medium-rare).

image004

Remove the steaks from the Beefer Original, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with Cooper’s Provisions Smoked Sea Salt n’ Pepper, and top with chopped fresh basil and serve!

Argentinean Red Shrimp, Bacon, Tomato and Peppers Wedge Salad from the Beefer

Argentinean Red Shrimp, Bacon, Tomato and Peppers Wedge Salad from the Beefer

Argentinian Red Shrimp are found in the South Atlantic and are red in color when caught. Their redness makes them different from common shrimp that are commonly blue or grey in color before cooking. Argentinian Red Shrimp are known to be the sweetest shrimp in the world, and are sought after for the buttery flavor and lobster like texture. For those on a high protein diet, these shrimp are packed with protein with al-most 18 grams of protein per 100 grams of shrimp. Some argue these and Royal Reds are the same. Some argue they are different. Either way, both will work in this dish as well as any shrimp you can find at your local grocery store or fish monger.

Ingredients

  • 1 (2.1 oz) package fully cooked traditional bacon
  • 1 (16 oz) package frozen XL Argentinean Red Shrimp, shell-on and tail-on, deveined
  • 2 cups tri-color mini peppers, sliced in rings
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil, divided
  • Cooper’s Provisions Smoked Salt
  • 1 lime wedge

For the Salad Dressing

  • 3/4 cup Thousand Island Dressing
  • 1/2 tablespoon sriracha style hot sauce
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped green onions
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley or cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/6 teaspoon salt

For the Salad

  • 1 head iceberg lettuce
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives and/or 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 tablespoon chopped parsley or cilantro
  • Lime wedges
Step1: Thaw frozen shrimp, 15-20 minutes before cooking.

We recommend buying shrimp with the shell-on because the shrimp are protected and retain flavor. Shelled shrimp can be mangled and look unappetizing. It only takes a few minutes to remove the shell. Shrimp shells can be frozen and used in seafood stock!

image003

Grease one Beefer grill grate. Peel shrimp, and pat dry on both sides. Arrange shrimp on grill grate. 16 ounces of shrimp can fit onto one Beefer grate. Set aside:

image004

In a medium bowl, whisk Thousand Island Dressing, sriracha, green onions, parsley, lime juice, and salt. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve:

image005

2 If desired, reserve 4 shrimp with their tails, cook separate, and arrange on plate in as an eye-catching focal point:

image006

Prepare all vegetables and herbs; this recipe is super quick to cook!

image007

Place pepper rings in a Beefer drip tray, stir in 1/2 tablespoon avocado oil and sprinkle with Mediterranean salt.

Place tray of peppers on the bottom of the Beefer and stir occasionally until slightly charred and softened.

image008

If needed, you can cut 6 wedges from one iceberg lettuce. Cut off any brown spots on the core without cutting the core off completely:

image009
Cut Iceberg lettuce into wedges by placing a large chef’s knife halfway through the core and push firmly down:
image010

Timesaver! Buy bacon fully cooked in the package and crisp it in the Beefer!

image011

Adjust the Beefer heat to MEDIUM, arrange bacon crosswise on a Beefer grill grate. Cut tips of bacon off if longer than the width of the grate.

Insert bacon onto the center shelf of the Beefer grill and cook for 20 seconds, turn grate in opposite direction, and cook 20 seconds or until bacon is sizzling and crisp. Pat bacon fat off with paper towels, snip into bites with kitchen scissors, and set aside.

image012
image013
Insert shrimp grate into the Beefer on the 5th rack and cook for 25 seconds:

Pull the shrimp out of the Beefer infrared grill and turn grate in opposite direction and cook for 25 seconds. Pull out the grill grate, turn shrimp over with the Beefer tongs, and continue to cook as directed above, until the shrimp’s internal temperature is 120°F. Transfer cooked shrimp into a Beefer deep drip tray and toss with 1/2 tablespoon avocado oil, and Mediterranean salt and lime juice to taste.

To serve: Arrange wedges on one large platter or individual salad bowls. Drizzle salad dressing on lettuce, and top with shrimp, bacon bits, tomatoes, green onions, and parsley. Serve with a lime wedge:
