Eilene is having friends over for Tuesday night shows and I always try to make something exotic for them. Looking at the recipes for Game of Thrones, they are either too simple, too complex, or take too long to make.

I am making carne asada for my mojo tacos today. Many recipes call for marinating the meat in the mojo sauce before grilling. Unless you have a really hot heat source, wet marinade tends to cause the meat to steam rather than char. To avoid this, I plan to give the meat a dry rub, grill it, and then mix the crusty sliced beef with the mojo sauce at the last minute.
I wanted to do braised French pork for dinner, but nothing on-line even came close to what I had in mind. I pictured something herby, falling off the bone tender, with a rich pan sauce. Looking in my spice cabinet, I picked out the herbs I thought would go together, not a fines herbes, but a unique blend of my own. It may not be actually a French recipe, but I associate these herbs with French cooking.
