The mustard idea I got from Wolfgang Puck on a recipe he used with Ribeyes. I substittuded sauted onion rings for fried,pork for beef, added the shrooms and tomato. Came out fantastic, with requests to do it again.
Really good and spicy bean dish that goes well with grilled beef and pork. Add a few splashes of hot sauce towards the end of cooking time.( Without the bacon, this is very good as a vegetarian dish; OR, an ounce or two of chorizo sausage can be used instead of bacon)
These fiery little friends are great for race days, tailgate parties and Sunday afternoon playoffs. Not suitable for synchronized water ballet get-togethers, though. After the last touch of oil is added they could be char-grilled if you don't want to heat the oven.
We used to make this in much larger batches for a restaurant. Yes it has many ingredients, but once you make it and bottle it up, you will have it and your neighbors won't! Great on everything from ribs and chops, to burgers and seafood.
I've made this for years in the kitchen, usually in 3 gallon batches or more. It freezes well and is a good base for meat sauce if you want to add equal portions of browned, ground beef and Italian sausage
This technique can be applied to bone-in chicken thighs (remove flesh from the bone, and pound)or an even easier option of boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Serve with warm pasta, steamed potatoes, or rice, with a little marinera sauce on both the meat and starch.
