Instructions for Burger:
After entering the Red Gold Tomato Summer Grillin' Sweepstakes, TGCC was inspired to try out some of the recipes on the Red Gold Tomato website. After trying a few, our favorite was definitely the Caribbean Chicken Burger. And, as we often do, we decided to add our own twist to the recipe which can be found here:http://www.redgold.com/red-gold-brand/recipes/recipe-details?recipe_id=1588
In this video you will notice we have topped the burgers with fried plantain chips and a sweet jalapeno glaze. Follow the recipe contained in the link above and intertwine those tasks with the one's in the recipes below and you will have everyone at your next Summer Grillin' Party saying 'These Guys Can Cook'!
Sweet Jalapeño Ketchup Glaze
- 1/4 C. Mama Selintas (no clue or real name but you have the bottle) Jalapeño Ketchup
- 1/4 C. Sweet & Hot jalapeño Jelly
- 1/2 t ground all spice (optional)
- combine equal parts Mama S Jalapeño Ketchup and Sweet & Hot Jalapeño Jelly with one-half teaspoon ground allspice. Use as a dipping sauce or brush on grilled meats for the last 3-5 minutes until a sticky glaze forms. ENJOY!
Crispy Fried Plantain Chips
- 1 plantain (peeled)
- 1 T flour
- sea salt & cracked pepper (to taste)
2 C vegetable oil
- heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat or until 350F. Meanwhile cut the plantains on the bias (at a diagonal angle) and toss them in a light dusting of floor. The floor will help the plantains crispy without burning.
Fry the plantain chips five to six at a time until golden brown- about one minute a piece. Remove plantain chips with a slotted spoon and season to taste with sea salt and cracked pepper. Serve as a side or snack. ENJOY!
Recently TGCC had the pleasure of filming a live segment at the Show Me St. Louis studio and I can sincerely say it was one of our proudest moments to date. Our first year has been filled with milestones and achievements but the raw thrill of excelling on live television was nothing short of invigorating.
As we prepped at the studio James and I both remembered a saying from our days playing football together, "if you're not nervous you're in the wrong business." With a perfect balance of excitement and passion we executed a pretty damn good cooking session.
Everyone at TGCC would like to express their gratitude to Show Me St. Louis, and we are extremely excited to work with you again next month and in the future. If live television is infectious then These Guys Can Cook has caught the bug...

When TGCC thinks of the Holiday season we think of presentation, deliciousness and above all extravagance. When this is the aim there is no better instrument then the Cornish game hen. Prepare one of these decadent fowl per-person and enjoy a truly over the top yet somehow slightly understated feast.
In America our concept of the Holiday feast is derived from old English traditions. In England it was custom to hunt and obtain your own large fowl for such occasions. Royalty however were often served their own individual Cornish game hens which roamed the estate property.
So this holiday season why don't you take a page out of our founding fathers' book and borrow some tradition from old England. We know this Shallot Roasted Cornish Game Hen and it's Chardonnay Pan Sauce will quickly become a new tradition in your home for years to come.
