Print
Ingredients
  1. 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts
  2. Salt and pepper
  3. 1/4 cup Olivia's Basil Olive Oil
  4. 5-6 roma tomatoes, diced
  5. 3 cloves garlic, minced
  6. One handful fresh basil, loosely packed, cut into ribbons
  7. 1/4 cup butter
  8. 8 ounces pasta, like spaghetti, linguine, or bucatini
Instructions
  1. Cover the chicken with plastic wrap and pound each piece to an even thickness, about one inch or so in the thickest parts (this just helps it cook faster and more evenly).
  2. Remove the plastic and sprinkle each piece of chicken generously with sea salt and freshly ground pepper.
  3. Prep the tomatoes, garlic, and basil and set aside.
  4. Make the pasta according to package directions.
  5. Heat the Basil Olive Oil on medium high in a large heavy skillet
  6. Add the chicken and cook for several minutes on each side – the goal here is to get the chicken cooked AND get a nice browning on the outside.
  7. When the chicken is done, set aside.
  8. Give the Basil Olive Oil a few minutes to cool, add the tomatoes, and return to heat.
  9. Simmer to cook the tomatoes down into a chunky-sauce-like-mixture.
  10. Add the garlic and butter and stir to combine until the butter is melted.
  11. Add the chicken back in to soak in the sauce for a few minutes.
  12. Just before serving, stir in the basil.
  13. Top servings of pasta with the chicken and the sauce.

  2. Stir in the rest of the stuffing ingredients and set aside.
  3. Cut a pocket in each pork chop by making a horizontal slice almost to the bone; fill with stuffing. (Pack it in there as tightly as you can.) Secure with toothpicks if necessary.
  4. Drizzle or brush with the Basil Olive Oil and Cranberry Balsamic; then sprinkle the rest of the seasoning ingredients on top of the pork chops.
  5. Put the pork chops into the prepared dish (uncovered) and bake for 35-40 minutes (or until the meat juices run clear). (If you have extra stuffing, you can mound it next to the pork chops in the pan.) If they're not as brown as you'd like, you can stick them under the broiler for a couple of minutes right before serving.

Prep Time
5 min
Cook Time
4 hr
Total Time
4 hr 5 min
Ingredients
  1. 3 lbs chuck or round roast beef (or any similar beef cut suitable for slow roasting)
For the Sauce
  1. ½ cup Olivia's Fig Balsamic
  2. 1 cup water
  3. 3 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  4. 2 tbsp. soy sauce
  5. 4 cloves garlic, minced
  6. 1 tbsp. honey
  7. ½ tsp. ground black pepper (optional)
  8. 1 tsp. chilli flakes (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees C (320 F)
  2. Place the beef in a large roasting dish, preferably one that has a lid. (you can use foil if it doesn’t have a lid).
  3. Mix all the ingredients for the sauce well in a bowl, then pour over the beef. Cover the dish and cook in the oven for 3-3½ hours, covered.
  4. After 3 hours, remove the dish from the oven. The meat will have shrunk a bit and there will probably be a good amount of fat on the surface of the sauce. Skim off as much fat as you can off the liquid.
  5. Using two forks, shred the beef as finely as you like, removing any excess fatty bits and spread out onto the bottom of the dish to soak up all the sauce.
  6. Return the dish to the oven, and roast for a further 30-40 minutes, this time uncovered, until darkened and the sauce is reduced slightly.
  7. Serve on rolls as an appetizer or an entree.
Notes
  1. Serve with potatoes, rice or in sandwiches. Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge up to 5 days, or in the freezer for 3 months.
