This weekend, Goodtaste travels around Texas to taste flavors from around the world!
Houston’s dynamic food scene is filled with shining stars, but Island Grill is one that’s rising by leaps and bounds. Now with six locations across the city, this stellar spot’s exceptional food draws regulars and celebrities alike, including H-town’s sports heroes! The smoothies alone could be a meal, like the delicious George H. W. Bush Smoothie, created by the 41st president himself and made with strawberries, blueberries, and bananas. And the Lance Berkman Smoothie, named for the former Astros slugger, was also personally crafted by the honoree himself and features plenty of protein and peanut butter.
Time to revisit the legendary St. Mary’s Strip in San Antonio, where a tiny pink restaurant is serving up truly unique barbecue. Curry Boys BBQ combines classic South Texas BBQ with Southeast Asian curry. Wait until you see the signature dish here, the Brisket Smoke Show, that serves super-tender brisket over a bed of jasmine rice, topped with an aromatic green coconut curry and crispy shallots.
Beef ribs used to get a bad rap, but the amazing pitmasters at The Original Black’s Barbecue have perfected this cut and turned them into a sought-after delicacy. Barrett Black shows us the secrets behind these smoked showstoppers and how to cook ’em up just right!
These days, every dollar counts, so we can’t afford to waste good food. And yet most of us do it all the time without even realizing it. Thankfully, Sysco Global Executive Chef Neil Doherty is here to show us how to make magic in the kitchen by reusing food scraps we’d normally toss in the trash. Wait until you see the fruits your green thumb can produce: You can regrow carrots, celery, romaine lettuce, and green onions! Chef Neil also shares a couple of amazing recipes to make with those kitchen scraps too.
