Using Olive Oil as an Alternative to Butter & a Giveaway

Do you cook with olive oil?  I will say that the only time I use anything other than Extra Virgin Olive Oil is in our deep fryer to make homemade french fries.  Otherwise, it is Extra Virgin Olive Oil all the time.  I mainly use it because it’s a healthier alternative to butter and vegetable oil.   Did you know that there are olive oils specifically designed to pair with vegetables, beef, and chicken?  I didn’t either, until I noticed the Star Usage Pairings Olive Oil varieties at my local WalMart.  I want to share three delicious recipes that can use the Star Hojiblanca Extra Virgin Olive Oil !

The sweet, hojiblanca olives that are cold pressed for the Star Hojiblanca Extra Virgin Olive Oil for Poultry and Fish produce a smooth, fruity oil that is perfect for chicken dishes.  I used it in my White Chicken and Roasted Garlic Pizza and the Southwest Chicken Stuffed Peppers.  It gave each of them more flavor than just using Extra Virgin Olive Oil.  The chicken, along with the other seasonings in these recipes tasted richer, but it wasn’t an overpowering olive oil taste.

 Fabulous alternative to traditional pizza.  So easy, and the beer battered crust makes it awesome!

 I didn’t even know there were specific types of olives that when pressed into olive oil would add enhancement to your food.  I’ve always used regular EVOO, but now I am loving this Hojiblanca Extra Virgin Olive Oil for Poultry and Fish!  I’m anxious to try the Star Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil for Vegetables as well.   I wonder how it would pair with the Hojiblanca version with my Southwest Chicken Stuffed Peppers?

If you prefer beef and lamb dishes, you can try the Star Picual Extra Virgin Olive Oil for Beef and Lamb.  Since my Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers calls for sauteeing the onions and roast beef in olive oil, this version of Star Olive Oil would be perfect for that!  We also marinate our steaks using olive oil and a steak rub.  Look at all these ways you can use Star Olive Oil Usage Pairing Extra Virgin Olive Oils in the recipes you already love, but give your dishes an extra flavor boost!

What about Chicken Scampi?  The Hojiblanca Extra Virgin Olive Oil for Poultry and Fish would work well in a recipe like that, too!
