In this issue

Stubb’s Barbecue Sauce

Stubbs Bbq Sauce

Some say that Stubb inherited his love for cooking from his preacher father, who was known to feed his congregation with barbecue along with the gospel. Stubb’s Orignal Bar-B-Q Sauce combines mouthwatering, tangy tomato paste with a kick of vinegar and a hint of molasses — worthy of its creator’s Texas roots.

Featured Video: Smoking Pork 101

Pulled Pork


Rachael Levine, Executive Chef of Nugget Markets, gives you the lowdown on Nugget Markets’ spicy pork rub, and the boys take you out in the backyard to show you how to smoke your shoulders and ribs to perfection.

Featured Recipe: Nugget’s Spicy Pork Rub Pork Sandwich

Spicy Pork Rub

While this recipe contains all of the traditional components that constitute a traditional barbecue rub — chili powder, celery salt, paprika, ground mustard and a wee bit of brown sugar — it also includes the unusual presence of candied ginger and cinnamon. We decided to go spicy when we created this recipe, so we chose to add hot red pepper flakes to give the finished meat a nice little kick. Of course, if you tend to be a little bashful around hot peppers, reduce the quantity to suit your own tolerance. You can also counter-balance the spiciness by basting the ribs or shoulder during the last half-hour with a sweet BBQ sauce by Earth & Vine or Cookwell & Co.

Get a Load of Lodi

Lodi Wines

No more is Lodi considered a lesser appellation than its cousins Napa and Sonoma. Now highly respected, Lodi boasts some great old vines, particularly the old vine Zinfandels it’s famous for. Other dry European red varietals also do very well in the region, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Petite Syrah, Tempranillo and Sangiovese. White wine grapes flourish too, including Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio and Chenin Blanc — especially in the Clarksburg region. Check out our expanded selection of Lodi and Clarksburg wines at the new Nugget in Elk Grove.

Health Notes from Dr. Liz:

Heirloom Tomato Primer


Just as their name implies, old-fashioned Heirloom tomatoes each have their own character – wrinkled skins, irregular shapes and gorgeous colors along with a few blemishes. According to Seed Saver Exchange, there are some 5,000 types of heirlooms. These stately and flavorful tomatoes have vintage “roots” going back more than 100 years, with some varieties passed down from early Native Americans years ago.

Known for bold taste, each heirloom variety has its own characteristic colors, shapes and flavors. And along with their good looks, heirlooms are packed with nutrients including vitamin C, potassium, fiber and an array of cancer-fighting compounds such as lycopene and xeathanzene. Look for these heirlooms at Nugget:

  • Marvel Stripe: Large fruit with yellow, orange and red stripes with a touch of green. Sweet tasting.
  • Brandywine: The most popular heirloom, these have an unmistakable tomato flavor.
  • Purple Cherokee: Said to originate from the Cherokee Indians, this tomato has a complex flavor.
  • Yellow Brandywine: Originating from the Amish country with excellent flavor.
  • Great White: White-skinned large tomato with excellent flavor.
  • Green Zebra: Fully ripened fruit is green with a faint stripe.

Treat your heirlooms with care:Dr Liz

  • Select tomatoes based on feel — smooth skin that is taut (avoid mushy fruit).
  • Buy only enough for a few days’ use as heirloom don’t keep as long as standard hybrid tomatoes, which are bred for their staying power.
  • Keep heirlooms out on your kitchen countertop until use. Don’t put them in the fridge, as chilling temps zap tomato flavor.
  • Enjoy heirlooms fresh or lightly cooked as a way to showcase their rich and tangy flavor.
