      Mole Coloradito Deviled Eggs

      Mole Coloradito Deviled Eggs

      Our friend Esteban, aka @ChicanoEats has done it again.  This time he surprised us with this out of this world deliciousness, deviled eggs recipe.  We must admit, eggs and mole are one of our most favorite combos.  Our dad's favorite meal is actually scrambled eggs and ham with a drizzle (big drizzle) of mole negro.  We also always keep a small saucepan of mole on our stove top to throw over any breakfast meal.  These deviled eggs however, took the mole egg game to a whole other level.  They were decadent and packed with flavor.  An absolute must have at any brunch.  Try them out and let us know what you think! 
      Thank you Esteban!

      Oaxacan Mole Braised Beef

      Oaxacan Mole Braised Beef

      Recipe Taken from Whiskey and Soba Blog.

      We had no idea he would be publishing this recipe!  But seeing it on Instagram made us jump with joy.  Make sure you follow their site for more delicious recipes an breathtaking photographs. 

      Remember to tag us if you recreate this recipe with the hashtag #moleandmore!

       

      SERVES: 4-6

      INGREDIENTS:

      3 lbs beef neck (or chuck)

      2.5 cups beef stock

      .75 La Guelaguetza Mole Negro Sauce 

       

      METHOD

      Make the La Guelaguetza Oaxacan Black Mole according to the package instructions. Let cool.

      Preheat the oven to 500F.

      Put the beef on a rack over a baking tray. Rub or brush the beef with the mole on all sides, then sear in the oven for 15 minutes.

      Lower oven temp to 300F.

      Combine mole and stock in an oven-safe braiser or Dutch oven. It won’t look like much liquid, but as Kenji taught me: the more liquid in there to start, the more you’ll have to reduce later. If you’re really concerned, feel free to add more mole and stock. Bring to a boil, then set in the beef, put on lid, and place in the oven.

      Bake covered for about 2 hours, then about 1 hour uncovered.

      Remove from the oven and pull apart or chop. If needed, simmer the sauce to thicken. Season with salt, if needed.
