Noble Suggestions
  • Assemble a Cajun spice rub and apply to cuts of pork, chicken or seafood before grilling.
  • Turn traditional meatloaf into Cajun meatloaf by substituting cornmeal for breadcrumbs and seasoning the ground beef mixture using the 3|2|1 method.
  • Smother baked sweet potatoes with sauteed ingredients from the 3|2|1 method. Depending on whether you include protein in the stir fry, this could serve as a main dish or a side dish.
