Adding Pineapples to brats



  • So I am making some of the Supreme Pizza Brats with chicken thighs. Can I add some pineapple tidbits to the mixture and use the pineapple juice or apple juice in place of the water?
    Thanks

    @harpo79 Using pineapple chunks/juice can be a bit touchy as it contains a enzyme that denatures protein and makes binding difficult. You will find bromelain, which is in pineapple in most meat tenderizers because of this, it is why your mouth sometimes gets sore after eating lots of pineapple, if it breaking down the lining in your mouth!

    If you are going to add pineapple I would used dehydrated chunks and you will want to eat them quickly, don’t try to store them for future use, only make as much as you are planning on eating right away.

    Anyone else have any input or advice?



  • @jonathon Thanks

  • My wonderful wife made a Costco run today so I could come up with something to compliment the farm fresh corn that was delivered by a Mello Farms family member.

    She came home with boneless rib steaks…IMG_20190821_184214.jpg IMG_20190821_184329.jpg IMG_20190821_190312.jpg IMG_20190821_191025.jpg IMG_20190821_192309.jpg

    All Things Bar-B-Que, the Bar-B-Que shop here in Wichita, Kansas (allthingsbarbque.com) has a chef that today made I thought the most wasteful burger going! He ground up an entire brisket!!! and made burger out of it. It was a lesser choice level, but stillll!! It did look great. Check out:

    This might be an inspiration, too.

    By the way; CONGRATULATIONS!! I know how hard the Keto diet is, but to surpass your goal is totally awesome!!

    @rhjbarney @Dave-R @craigrice I see where you’re going with this. I guess I’m to the point I’ve spent $100 on the small mixer, $200 on the larger mixer, now another $100-$200 on this…This is where I cut my losses and just get the 50lb meat mixer. I know it’s not cheap but i’m tired of getting so far in just to come to the reality I should have spent the money in the first place… I feel like I’m hovering between the hobby doing 5 or 10 pounds and a pro shop since were doing well over 600# of stuff a year at this point.
