I recently had the chance to get a copy of Guy Fieri Food from MorrowCooks. Be sure to check out their blog titled, The Secret Ingredient Blog!
Bursting with personality, fun, and flavor, Guy Fieri Food is the first-ever cookbook from the Food Network superstar, host of NBC’s popular game show “Minute to Win It,” and #1 New York Times bestselling author of Diners, Drive-ins & Dives and More Diners, Drive-ins & Dives. Filled with more than 150 original recipes, gorgeous full-color photos, and loads of great cooking tips, Guy Fieri Food is an absolute must for any Fieri fan!
If you’ve checked out my Diners, Drive-ins and Dives books or visited my restaurants, Johnny Garlic’s and Tex Wasabi’s, you know I’m down with all types of good food—and that I’ll do what’s required to track it down. In Guy Fieri Food, I’m cookin’ it my way, from the perfect recipe for Pepper Jack Pretzels (from Mr. Awesome Pretzel himself—that’s me) to how to pull together a Red Rocker Margarita Chicken sandwich to a full-on vegetable Guy’d (bet you didn’t see that one comin’!). Before I’m finished I’ll have you throwing parties with everything from Bacon-Jalapeno Duck appe-tapas to Chicago Beef Pizza to Johnny Garlic’s Cedar Plank Salmon.
Fact is, I’ve been cookin’ it, livin’ it, and lovin’ it since I was just a kid, and it’s a privilege to help you bring home some of my own classic, big, and bold flavors.

My Thoughts …
We love to watch Guy’s shows here at our house. He is a lot of fun to watch and not the same old boring cooking or food show. So when I heard Guy was coming out with his first cookbook, I knew we had to make room on our cookbook bookcase (yes, they have their own bookcase) for his book. Looking at the cover of the book, I knew the book was really part of Guy. The cover just screams his personality! That theme continues through the book. The cookbook does contain many great recipes but it also has many great stories from Guy. This makes it a great read and not just a reference book to sit on your cookbook bookcase! 😉
I am excited to share a recipe from Guy Fieri Food. Here is Guy’s Watermelon Pork Tacos!
Watermelon Pork Tacos
1 pork tenderloin, silverskin removed, cut into 1-inch-thick slices
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 teaspoon red chili flakes
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons chopped ginger
1 tablespoon seeded, minced serrano chile
2 tablespoons minced garlic
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1 cup watermelon cut into 1/4-inch cubes
1 cup seeded English cucumber cut into 1/4-inch cubes
1 Haas avocado, pitted, peeled, and cut into 1/4-inch cubes
1 romaine lettuce head
1. To make the pork, combine all the ingredients in a resealable 1-gallon plastic bag and marinate for 30 minutes.
2. While the pork is marinating, whisk together all the ingredients for the vinaigrette. In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients for the salsa. Very gently fold in the vinaigrette. Chill.
3. Trim off the soft dark green end of the romaine. Cut off the root end and separate the leaves to create 4-inch-long lettuce “shells”. Rinse, dry, and chill the leaves.
4. Preheat a grill to medium. Discard the marinade. Grill the pork for 3 minutes on each side. Remove from the heat, let rest 3 minutes, and roughly chop into 1/2-inch pieces.
5. Fill the lettuce shells with the pork, top with the salsa, and devour!
If that doesn’t sound yummy to to then, I am not sure what would. I honestly can’t wait to add this our menu next month. We will have to leave out the oyster sauce as I am allergic to oysters but I think it will still taste great.
