Dallas (the tv show) started its new season with us lastnight. I celebrated it's return with my friends Julie & Benny.
Julie had cooked up the most amazing feast of Tex Mex inspired food that has ever graced a table.
Tomato salsa, guacamole, beef juice dip, tortillas, and the crowning glory 'Dallas Tacos' made with pot roast & grilled cheese tacos. With gallons of ice tea - the national drink of Texas - to wash it down.
It was one of the best meals I have eaten for weeks. In fact they are in my top five tacos ever eaten.
Julie had slow cooked a pot roast - 12 hours people - in garlic, jalapeños, cumin, red wine vinegar, and onions. Then shredded it making it look like crispy duck from a
Chinese restaurant. It was the most succulent & sweet meat I have EVER tasted. It literally oozed flavour.
When wrapped in a warm taco with her chilli heavenly guacamole & garlicky salsas each bite was sweet, spicy, and SUPERB.
I've included a photo of Jules' recipe and I definitely recommend you try it. Your life will never be the same again.
Oh and Dallas it was funky and fun. The power mad Euwings where in full throttle with a fast paced script- full of, family feuding, power hungry manics, glamour & steely looks. The good acting, and as many twists and turns as a mountain road in Ireland and of course oil. Everything was about oil!
What a show. I'm glad it's back. One hour of pure escapism that instantly hooks the viewer into the storyline. None of this you need to watch three episodes to get it. The first bars of the soundtrack play & your there a silent observer in Texas at Southfork.
As JR says 'blood is thicker than water and oil is thicker than both.'
Enjoy the show & the Tacos.
That's it for now ...
Salt & Sparkle = Life Remarkable
