Pan Seared Tri Tip with Farmers Market Vegetables

 

Tri Tip with Farmers Market Vegetables

On Saturday we found a great cut of Tri Tip with some late summer farmers market vegetables and newly arrived green beans. As we walked through the market we realized we were witnessing the bittersweet departure of summer and the coming of fall. We picked up a handful of bumper crop green beans from Paradise Produce as well as some Patty Pan squash, purple potatoes, green beans,baby kale & frisee. Triple L Ranch had a beautiful cut of Tri-Tip beef and we grabbed that too. This recipe may seem a bit long but every step is pretty easy, and it captures the moment of the season perfectly with fresh farmers market vegetables paired with local beef.

Pan Seared Beef Tri Tip with Farmers Market Vegetables of Purple Potatoes, Green Beans, Squash and Bitter Greens with Honey – Cider Vinaigrette

Serves 4-6

Ingredients:

2lbs Tri-Tip beef
1/4 lb Green Beans, with tips trimmed
1/4 lb Patty Pan squash, cut into quarters
1lbs purple potatoes
4oz baby kale
4oz frisee
2 tbl grapeseed oil
2 tsp sea salt, plus a pinch or 2
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp fresh ground black pepper, plus more for the greens

green beansfarmers market vegetablesmarket greenslocal green beans

 

 

 

 

Pre-heat the oven to 350F. Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Season the Tri-Tip with 1 tsp sea salt, paprika, garlic powder and black pepper. Drizzle over 1 t/l grapeseed oil and rub the spices into the beef. Sear the Tri-tip in the cast iron skillet for 2-3 minutes until a nice crust forms. Turn the Tri-Tip over, add the potatoes and then put the skillet in the oven. Roast for 4-5 minutes or until an instal-read thermometer reads 150F. Remove the beef to a platter to rest, and return the skillet with the potatoes to the oven and continue to cook until cooked through, about 10 minutes, while you prepare the other vegetables. Bring a 3 quart pot of water to a boil, add 1 tsp sea salt and then the green beans, boil for 3 minutes. While the green beans are boiling heat a sauté pan over medium heat and when hot add 1 tbl of grapeseed oil and the squash and sauté for 2-3 minutes. When the green beans are tender remove with tongs and add them to the sauté pan with the squash. Season with a pinch of sea salt and cook for 2 minutes, allowing the veggies to brown a little. When cooked through remove to a platter and reserve. Add the potatoes to the platter when ready. While the beef is resting toss the baby kale and the frisee with the vinaigrette and a little sea salt and fresh pepper. Then add to the platter. After the beef has rested long enough to relax, remove to a cutting board and cut into 1/4 inch slices, then layout onto the platter, then serve warm. Enjoy!

For the vinaigrette-

1 tbl honey, from Johnson’s Honey Farm
1 tbl olive oil
1 tbl apple cider vinegar
pinch of sea salt
a few grinds of fresh black pepper

In a small Mason jar combine all of the ingredients, close the top and shake vigorously . This will keep covered in the fridge for 2 weeks.

Tomato Sausage Pasta with Local Ingredients

Tomato Sausage Pasta Recipe

Using all local ingredients for this Tomato Sausage Pasta recipe delivers a festival of flavor each time I prepare this easy recipe. So as summer draws to a close, I am thinking of how fast the time goes when we have sweet, beautiful, vine ripe tomatoes, it always surprises me. And one of the dishes I love to make with Summer tomatoes is a quick and simple pasta dish with Italian sausages, tomatoes, garlic, basil and fresh pasta for this all local Tomato Sausage Pasta recipe. So this past weekend I picked up some fresh Casarecce pasta from Alfresco Pasta, a few red & yellow tomatoes from my friend Lauren at Bloomsbury Farm and delicious local sausages from Bill & LeeAnn Cherry at Bear Creek Farm. It was fantastic and truly captured the pure taste of Summer.

Using local meats like this locally blended sausage from Bear Creek Farm delivers added local flavor!

Bring 3 quarts of water to a boil in a sauce pan, then add a pinch of salt and then the pasta. Cook for 4-5 minutes or until tender. Drain the pasta but reserve a 1/4 cup of the pasta cooking liquid. As the pasta cooks slice the sausages into 1/2 inch rounds, then add them to the skillet with the tomatoes. When the pasta is ready add it to the skillet with a little of the pasta water. Turn the skillet back on to medium heat and toss everything together until the sauce begins to coat the pasta and is warmed though, about 2 minutes. When the pasta is piping hot turn off the heat and serve in shallow bowls. Quickly chop the fresh basil and divide between each bowl, then grate the parmesan over the pasta a serve. Using all local ingredients from our farmers market will deliver more flavor and a new Tomato Sausage Pasta we hope you enjoy!

The annual festival grows larger every year, and this year the Franklin Farmers Market had record crowds to celebrate the fruit of summer. Fun events included a seed spitting contest for adults and kids and a very popular watermelon eating contest for both kids and adults. Other activities included free face painting and games for the whole family. One contest had over 300 entries- the Guess the Weight contest. The largest melons at the market, donated by Hollow Creek Farm, came in at 86.3lbs and 74.1lbs. Two lucky customers got to take home the large melons after guessing the weights correctly!

To help us celebrate the watermelon even more, the Leiper’s Fork Carving Club carved beautiful and unique creations from watermelons in a matter of minutes! It was truly amazing to see what they could do with an ordinary watermelon and customers enjoyed learning more about their artwork.

The Franklin Farmers Market vendors and local farmers joined in the fun celebration in their own way. Padrino’s Pops quickly sold out of their famous watermelon pops, and Belle Springs Lemonade wowed the crowd with their handmade watermelon lemonade with melons sourced from the farmers. Many of the produce farmers made watermelon creations of their own, including watermelon shaped rice krispie treats at Evan’s Produce and watermelon cake pops at Norton Family Farm. Delvin Farms and Colbert Farm gave hundreds of free watermelon samples to the many customers who attended the festival. The Franklin Watermelon Festival ends the summer with a bang!

Honey Balsamic Grilled Chicken Recipe

Grilled Chicken Recipe
Here’s a favorite honey balsamic grilled chicken recipe you can enjoy for years to come. When it’s too hot to heat up the kitchen in the dog days of Summer we fire up the grill, a lot! One of my favorite things to grill is locally raised organic chicken from West Wind Farms in Morgan County Tennessee. The flavor is pure, clean and delicious. We like to brine the whole bird for a few hours before cutting into serving pieces. The brining process keep the chicken tender and juicy, and helps to add a a bit of salt to bring out the flavor of this beautiful poultry. Chances are you can make the BBQ Glaze for items you already have in your pantry. It’s an easy sauce to make but so tasty on this grilled chicken. Give it a try anytime of year.

For the brine-

1/2 cup of kosher salt

Mix the water and salt together until dissolved in a larger container. Add the chicken and let brine for at least 4 hours.

For the chicken-

What a nice looking bird from West Winds Farm

Remove the chicken from the brine and pat dry with paper towels and set aside on a cutting board. Time the wing tips at the second joint, and set aside Remove the breasts by running the knife down the center great bone inch side until you cut through at the wing joint. Set aside with the wings. Separate the the thigh quarters and then cut the leg away cutting through at the little fat line that runs between the thigh and leg. Set aside with the the wings and breasts. Season the chicken with the oil and all of the spices listed above. Cover and let come to room temp for 15 minutes. Now fire up the grill and bring to 450F degrees. When the grill is hot grill the chicken skin side up for about 5 minutes. Tuns the chicken over to grill skin side down for another 5 minutes. At this point you might need to turn down the grill to a more medium heat, and then turn the chicken over agin to skin side up. Using a small soon begin to drizzle the BBQ Glaze over each piece of chicken. Close the grill for a minute and then repeat. Turn the chicken =n over and add more glaze, you will be skin side down now. Close the grill again for a minute to give the BBQ Glaze a chance to work its way into the chicken and slightly begin to caramelize, take care not to burn the skin, a little char is ok but be careful. Using an insta-read thermometer check that the temperature has reached 165f degrees (food safety first!). Remove the grilled chicken to a serving platter and drizzle the remaining BBQ Glaze over the chicken. Let rest a few minutes and serve! Enjoy!
