Being a cowboy brings many benefits – from learning how to work hard to depending only on yourself and your ranch. Those of you who are interested in cowboy dating should know exactly what you’re getting into, especially if you’ve just joined a cowboy dating site.
There are many ways one can get acquainted with the cowboy culture since there are many aspects of the greatest American tradition. However, we were thinking of one specific approach – through food. In that name, here are the top 5 dishes from the cowboy cuisine.
When someone says “cowboys,” you immediately think of the Wild West and bison, right? That’s why the seared bison strip loin with juniper and fennel is the dish that most perfectly describes what cowboy cuisine looks like.
This is dish is best prepared on a hot stone because it’s the best method of getting that crust on a juicy steak. The trick here is not to use oil but to sear the meat instead.
Do you like chili? Do you want to date a cowboy? Then prepare this tasty cumin chili for him!
All you need to prepare this delicious meal are beans, green bell pepper, and ground beef. The preparation process is the same as with any other chili, with the only variable being cayenne pepper. Just add more of this stuff if you prefer your chili as you prefer your cowboys – hot.
If you’re looking for a starter that comes straight from a cowboy’s kitchen, then the pork and pink bean soup with corn muffin croutons is the perfect dish for you.
It’s thick, it’s savory, and it’s the perfect example of what a cowboy may be cooking at a campfire. This dish is basically the lovechild of tomato soup and baked beans mixed with sweet corn muffin croutons that give it that extra crunch.
For those of you who prefer something more exotic, there are things in the cowboy cuisine that may surprise you. One such dish is the Chiles Rellenos with corn-and-okra succotash.
This is basically the dish that represents most perfectly what Tex-Mex really stands for. It has the Texan meat and cheese (which are battered and fried) and the Mexican poblanos and grilled chiles rellenos succotash. Tasty!
It might not sound like it at first, but many cowboys consider this meal to be a dessert more than the main dish. The baked three-bean casserole with crispy bacon is so succulent and mouth-watering that we can’t imagine anything else to finish off a real cowboy dinner better.
All you need are canned beans, some barbecue sauce, and some bacon. Just cook those beans in a cast-iron casserole over a fire or use an indoor oven if that’s what you’re limited to – it won’t be as authentic, but it won’t lack flavor or tastiness.
