Instructions
  1. In a small bowl stir together first 10 ingredients. Sprinkle steaks generously on both sides with spice rub, pressing gently to slightly adhere. Drizzle with oil and rub paste evenly over steak. Cover and set aside at room temperature while grill preheats.
  2. Preheat grill to medium high.
  3. Clean and dry mixed greens ( I like to use a salad spinner). Clean and slice vegetables, subbing in others as you like.
  4. Grill steak to desired doneness. 4-5 minutes per side for a medium 1" steak. It will depend on thickness of steak. Remove steak and cover with foil and allow to rest at least 5 minutes.
  5. While steak rests, arrange mixed greens on plate and top with sliced vegetables and crumbled goat cheese.
  6. Slice steak across the grain and arrange on salad. Drizzle with Catalina dressing and serve immediately.
Recipe Notes

I recommend using homemade dressing, you just can't beat it.  Here's a link to my Catalina Dressing.

Dressing
  1. Whisk all ingredients together in a small bowl. Makes about 1 cup of dressing. Refrigerate extra dressing for up to 1 week.
Wings
  1. In a large heavy duty pot fitted with a clip on thermometer, heat a minimum of 3" of canola oil to 350℉ 375℉. (oil will cool when wings are added)
  2. Pat chicken wings dry with a paper towel. Add half the wings to the hot oil, dropping them in one by one. Cook for 5-6 minutes, depending on size, until no longer pink. Remove with a slotted scoop to a paper towel lined plate. Repeat with remaining wings.
  3. Preheat broiler and line a large baking tray with foil. In a large bowl stir together Catalina Dressing and Franks Red Hot sauce. Add wings and toss to evenly coat.
  4. Arrange wings in a single layer on baking tray and broil 8" from broiler for about 2 minutes per side. Remove from oven and serve immediately.
Recipe Notes

Wings can be made hotter if desired by decreasing the amount of dressing and increasing hot sauce to your preference.

Instructions
Ribs
  1. Preheat oven to 275℉. In a small bowl whisk together sugar and spices. Remove the thin membrane on the back side of ribs if not already done by butcher. Liberally coat the rib rack on all sides with spice rub.
  2. Wrap ribs tightly in aluminum foil with meat side up. Place on large baking tray and bake for approximately 3 hours until meat is tender. Make sauce while ribs are cooking.
  3. Preheat oven to broil and position rack to 6-8" from broiler. Remove ribs from foil and place back on baking tray lined with fresh foil. Brush liberally with sauce on both sides and broil for 3-4 minutes per side. Remove from oven and cut between bones. Serve immediately with extra sauce on the side.
Sauce
  1. Whisk together all ingredients in a medium sauce pan and bring to a full simmer. Reduce heat and allow to simmer uncovered for at least an hour, stirring occasionally. Sauce should be reduced slightly and flavours melded. Yielding approximately 2 cups of sauce.
Recipe Notes

I had approximately 1/2 cup of sauce left over without serving any on the side. Can freeze for another use.  Also great with grilled pork tenderloin.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350℉. Whisk together all ingredients except for chicken. Set aside. Rinse chicken and pat dry with a paper towel. Place chicken in a large casserole dish or roaster. Spread 3/4 of mustard mixture evenly over entire chicken.
  2. Roast uncovered in preheated oven for 60 minutes. Brush chicken with remaining mustard coating and continue to roast for an additional 45-60 minutes or until an instant read thermometer registers 170℉ at the thickest part of the thigh. Remove from oven and cover with foil and allow to rest for 15-20 minutes. Cut chicken into pieces and serve immediately.
  3. If using as a one pan meal, add evenly cut potatoes and other vegetables along with fresh herbs to the roasting pan after the chicken has cooked for 30 minutes. Turn vegetables when you brush the chicken with remaining mustard rub.
Recipe Notes

Roasting time will vary depending on the size of your chicken.
