  • 1st Place - Demitri’s Shrimp and Grits

    Recipe provided by karl Nieberlein

    Serves 4

    4 Strips thick cut hickory smoked bacon
    20 Jumbo raw shrimps, peeled with tails on. (just over a pound)
    ½ cup Demitri's Classic Recipe (substitute ¼ cup of the total ½ cup with Demitri's Chilies & Peppers if you want it spicy).
    4 Tablespoons tomato paste
    Juice of half a lemon (approximately ¼ cup)
    Zest of half a lemon
    4 Green onions, sliced thin and divide the whites from the greens
    2 Tbs good olive oil
    1 cup quick grits
    4 cups chicken stock
    1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese, more if you like your grits extra cheesy

    In a large bowl combine Dimitri’s Bloody Mary mix, lemon juice, lemon zest, onion white portions and olive oil.

    Clean and peel shrimps leaving tails on and toss in bowl with Bloody Mary mixture. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

    Meanwhile dice Bacon into lardons and render over medium heat in a non-stick skillet until just until it starts to brown and the fat renders. Do not overcook as is it will be returned to the pan later. Reserve the browned bacon lardons and 2 tablespoons of the bacon fat, discard the rest. Wipe the pan out.

    In a saucepan, bring the chicken stock to a boil and add the quick grits. Simmer per package instructions until done. Stir in the cheddar cheese and cover

    Heat the skillet over medium high heat and add all the shrimp mixture and bacon lardons. Stir in the tomato paste. Cook the shrimps on one side for about 2 minutes or until just brown, flip and cook the other side until done.

    To serve, place a scoop of grits in the center of a bowl and make a slight indent in the top with the back of the spoon. Arrange 5 shrimps in a fan pattern in the center of the grits and drizzle the pan sauce over the shrimps. Garnish with the green portions of the onions. For bacon lovers you can “rim” the serving bowl with Dimitri’s Bacon Rimshot.

      • 3rd Place - Easy Smoked Short Ribs

        Recipe provided by Rachel Voss

        Serves 4

        3-4 lbs beef short ribs
        BBQ Season/ Rub (Your Fav)
        2 cups beef broth
        2 cups Demitri's Classic Recipe
        1 cup red wine
        BBQ sauce

        Smoke for 3 hours. I prefer a fruit wood for ribs. I use Pit Boss competition blend or an apple or cherry. Anything really works- these are just my favs. Set ribs directly on the smoker racks...not a pan or foil. Get a heavy smoke on ribs. JUST SMOKE no extra heat.

        Braise for 2 hours. Combine and mix stock, wine, and Demitris. After the 3 hour smoke, put the ribs in their bath! Transfer ribs to a dish with the mix of 1 cup of red wine, 2 cup of beef stock, 2 cups of Demitri’s Bloody Mary seasoning. Cover tightly in foil and put back on smoker for 2 hours on 250.

        Smoke and sauce for 1 hour. Properly braised ribs should retract and be pulling away from bone 1/4 to 1/2 inch. Remove ribs from bath and place back on smoke (no heat) Sauce with your fav BBQ sauce.

          • Deba's Meatballs

            The bride wants meatballs, Swedish no less, the shower is tomorrow. I buy organic ground beef and pork shoulder, the store didn't have decent ground pork.

            Makes 4 servings

            ----------------------------

            2 pounds (each) ground beef; minced or ground pork
            4 raw eggs
            1 3/4 cups good bread crumbs or panko
            1 1/2 cups slivered onions, in this case green
            2 oz of Demitri's Classic Bloody Mary Seasoning
            2 1/2 tablespoons of Demitri's RimShot
            1 oz flavorless oil for frying

            Preparing the meatballs: Mix all ingredients well and form small meatballs using a scoop or spoon, equal size is good for even cooking. Cook meatballs in frying pan until browned on all sides, remove, and drain on paper towels.

            Making the sauce: Drain the remaining oil, put the pan on the heat with 2 cups water, another oz. or two of liquid Demitri's and a dry 1/4 cup of white or rose wine. Add 2 tablespoons of Better than Bullion Beef broth concentrate, stir up the flavorful bits from the pan.

            In a seperate pan: melt 3 tablespoons butter in another pan, add three tablespoons of flour. Brown carefully until golden and well cooked to get rid of the raw flour taste (we are making a light roux). Put a large fine strainer over the pot with the roux, pour the stock mixture through the strainer, stir.

            Pour 1/4 to 1/3 cup of half and half into a small bowl or measuring cup, put a ladle of the hot liquid into the half and half. Stir, then pour this into the simmering sauce.

            Add sauce to meatballs. I put these into a crock pot to take to the party, or serve up and enjoy!

          • Spicy Tomato and Vodka Pasta

            This dish takes about 20 minutes or less to make and uses a purchased high-quality arrabiata pasta sauce. For a tasty variation, try topping it with crumbled gorgonzola cheese instead of parm.

            Makes 6 servings

            1 pound dry penne pasta

            -----------------------------------------

            1 tablespoon olive oil
            1 small white onion, diced (about 2 cups)
            1 small yellow pepper, diced (about 1 1/4 cups)
            3 cloves garlic, finely minced
            1/3 cup vodka
            3 tablespoons Demitri’s Chilies & Peppers Bloody Mary Seasoning
            3 cups purchased arrabiata pasta sauce
            3/4 cup heavy cream
            1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
            1/3 cup high-quality grated parmesan cheese

            Start cooking the pasta according to the package directions, or until al dente.

            In a large heavy saucepan, heat the oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add the onion and yellow pepper and cook, stirring often, for 5 to 7 minutes or until soft.

            Add the garlic to the veggies, and cook, stirring often, for 1 minute. Add vodka and let cook for a few seconds, then add the pasta sauce and Demitri’s seasoning. Let cook a few seconds then add the cream and let cook for about 1 minute. Drain the cooked pasta well (do not rinse!). Add hot, well-drained pasta to the sauce. Sauce should be nicely coating the pasta. Remove pan from the heat. Serve immediately and garnish with a sprinkle of the fresh basil and parmesan.

            Chef’s Notes: If you can’t find arrabiata sauce, then substitute a good quality marinara and a nice pinch of red chili flakes.

            Garnish: coarsely chopped fresh basil

            To marinate the steak: Trim the meat of any outer pieces of fat and silverskin. Put the steaks in a large re-sealable plastic bag. Pour the 1/2 cup of Demitri’s seasoning into the bag, press out any air, and then seal the bag. Move the meat around in the bag to coat well.

The grilling time will vary, depending on the heat of the grill and the thickness of the meat. Remove steak to a plate to rest for about 5 minutes before serving, allowing juices to settle. Top with cheese so that it starts to melt. Meanwhile, grill the onions till tender and nicely grill marked.

            Serve the steaks topped with onions and drizzled with Horseradish Steak Drizzle.

          • Slow-Cook Pot Roast with Ale and Garlic

            Serve up this fork-tender roast with fluffy mashed potatoes to soak up all the delicious sauce!

            Makes 6 to 8 generous servings

            1 (3- to 3 1/2-pound) beef chuck roast
            2 tablespoons vegetable oil
            2 teaspoon kosher salt
            1/2 teaspoon black pepper
            1 large onion, peeled and cut into 8 wedges
            1 1/2 cups sliced mushrooms
            6 tablespoons Demitri’s Extra Horseradish Bloody Mary Seasoning
            1 (12-ounce) bottle pale ale
            3 tablespoons flour
            5 cloves coarsely chopped garlic

            -------------------------------------------

            4 carrots, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces

            4 stalks celery, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces

            Preheat an oven to 325 degrees F.

            With paper towels, pat the roast dry. Heat the oil in a large ovenproof Dutch oven over high heat until hot.

            Rub the roast with the salt and pepper. Place in the hot pan and sear on all sides until well browned (about 3 to 4 minutes per side). Remove the meat to a platter. Add the onion wedges and mushrooms to the pan and stir around for a few minutes, then tuck the roast back into the pan and drizzle with the Demitri’s seasoning. Pull the onion and mushroom mixture up from under the roast.

            Whisk together the beer and flour until smooth and add to the roasting pan, along with the garlic. Bring to a simmer, then cover the pan and transfer it to the oven.

            Roast for about 2 hours. Add the carrots and celery and continue to roast for 1/2 hour to 1 hour, or until meat is fork tender.

            Cut roast into thick slices or large chunks, depending on your preference, and serve with the sauce drizzled over it.

            Chef's Tips:

            If the sauce is not thick enough, make a cornstarch slurry using 1 tablespoon cornstarch mixed with 2 tablespoons water. Whisk the slurry into the simmering sauce, a little at a time, until the desired thickness is reached.

          • Sarah's Award-Winning Pulled Pork Sannies

            Ingredients:

            4-6 lb pork shoulder roast
            1 cup Demitri’s Classic Recipe Seasoning
            Salt & Pepper
            2 medium onions diced
            3 ribs celery diced
            3 large carrots peeled & diced
            1 green or red pepper diced (optional)
            3 cloves garlic minced
            1 15oz can diced Italian style tomatoes with liquid
            1 cup dry white wine
             

            How to:

            Salt & pepper pork roast. Sear in oiled, hot skillet on each side until well browned. While pork roast is searing dice onion, celery, carrots, pepper, and garlic. Place in large crock pot on 6-8 hour setting and in the same skillet, sweat onion, celery, carrots, and green or red pepper with salt & pepper.

            After 5-10 minutes add the 2/3 cup of the Demitri’s seasoning along with the can of tomatoes and chopped garlic. Cook for another 2-5 minutes and add the entire mixture to the crock pot. Move the mixture around so it envelops the roast on all sides.

            Add the wine to the skillet to deglaze the pan, add wine to crock pot. Cook for 6-8 hours until the pork roast falls apart with a fork. Remove roast from crock pot to large bowl, scoop a little liquid over it and cover with foil. Scoop veggies and liquid into blender and pulse until well blended. Depending on the size of your blender you may have to do this is stages, and don’t fill the blender more than half way up or you’ll make a big hot mess.

            Strain liquid through fine mesh strainer and pour into skillet and add remaining 1/3 cup of Demitri’s. Reduce by half or until it reaches a gravy consistency. While the liquid is reducing pull the pork using a fork removing any bones or large pieces of fat. Add reduced liquid to pork and toss to coat.

            Serve on your choice of bun with or without coleslaw.
             
            Best enjoyed along with Demitri’s recipes for Bloody Mary!

             

            Demitri’s Notes:

            I’m going to add a minced jalapeno to the veggies next time
            Add a pinch more salt to the meat before braising.

            I HIGHLY recommend cole slaw in the sandwich. Truly epic.
            I also use two forks to pull the pork – one to hold the pork, one to pull.
            Great recipe!  Thanks Sarah!

            Cut chilies into chunks so that they will be easy to remove (or not).

            Mix it up , and refrigerate for a few hours.

            Marinate overnight. Sauté or braise, serve with wild rice and veggies. If sautéing, remove medallions from
            pan, and add a touch of cream and white wine to the remaining spices. Pour over medallions.

          • Extravagant Eggplant

            This is a top-notch side dish.

            Ingredients:
            2 eggplants
            Salt
            1/3 cup Demitri's® All Natural Bloody Mary Seasoning
            3 cloves garlic, crushed
            1/4 cup olive oil

            Slice eggplant into quarter-inch slices and salt both sides. Let stand for 30 minutes. Combine Demitri's, olive oil and garlic and stir well. Rinse the slices of eggplant and set into Demitri’s mixture. Marinate for 1-2 hours and then fry.

            It's easy to overcook or undercook eggplant. If it's rubbery, it's undercooked. If it's mush, you guessed it, it's overcooked. Look for the eggplant to get to a nice brown color. As soon the eggplant gets soft, it's done.

            Simple? That's how we like it!

          • Dad's Super easy BBQ Steak Marinade

            If Demitri's was made for any other purpose than Bloody Mary mixes, this is it! You'll find more barbecue marinade tips and recipes on the recipes page, but this one is so tasty and easy, we thought it deserved a page all its own.

            Ingredients:
            Steaks
            Demitri's® All Natural Bloody Mary Seasoning
            Fresh lemon juice

            Mix Demitri's 50/50 with lemon juice. Marinate steaks for a couple of hours, turning every half hour or so.

            Start with a very hot barbecue and a cool Demitri's Bloody Mary. Over high heat, cook the steaks on the first side until they're about a third done, and then flip. Be careful not to burn the steaks, but a slightly charred finish is the key. When you flip the steaks, be careful — the high heat needed for the char-finish can quickly overcook your steaks.

            Try your own variation on marinade for steaks with all of Demitri's seasonings.
