Beef Short Rib Tamales

Thursday, June 2, 2011

22 Comments

I am really quite a tamale snob. Let me explain.  You see, the ratio of well prepared tamales to terrible tamales is currently around 1 to 100.  What makes a bad tamale?  First, the masa.  A bad tamale has either dry, crumbly masa, or gooey, undercooked masa.  Typically you see the former, which is why […]

Shredded Beef Sliders with Carrot Apple Slaw

I think the best way to cook a beef roast is in the slow cooker. I love that I can spend about ten minutes puttering in the kitchen, then I sit back for eight hours and, as if by magic, I have a pot of juicy, tender, wonderfully flavorful beef.  Speaking of beef, this is […]

I think we got about eight inches of snow overnight. Some of you may read that and say, ‘So what?’  So plenty!  You see, this is Dallas and in these parts even the lightest dusting of the white stuff can bring our bustling metropolis to a screeching halt.  Imaging what four days of ice, topped […]

I was lucky enough to make it through to the second round of Project Food Blog!  Many thanks to the generous people who voted for me.  Your reward is something delicious! Last year my husband and I went to Bavaria.  Munich to be precise.  A good part of my family came to America from the […]

Shredded Garlic Beef Tacos With Pickled Onions

I am developing an obsession with tacos. A few weekends ago my husband and I spent a VERY long afternoon at Mayfest, an art and sports fair, where I was preforming with my belly dance class.  Did I say it was a long day?  By the time I was finished I was hot, dusty, blistered, […]

Coconut Curry Braised Short Ribs

I love coconut curries.  They are common on Thai menus and I adore their rich, creamy, and spicy flavors. Thai flavors have become rather common in my kitchen in recent years.  After I have my first bite of Pad Thai nearly ten years ago I became almost obsessed with trying new dishes and deconstructing them […]

Zinfandel Braised Chicken Thighs with Mushrooms and Polenta

I am something of a comfort food junkie. I have discovered, over the last year, the delightful bliss that is polenta.  I have also discovered that I am passionately in love with chicken thighs.  So, when I was craving something rich, creamy, and comforting the other night I decided to take my two new comfort […]

Porchetta

When I was at the FoodBuzz festival back in November I had something that was life-changingly good.  It is called porchetta. Porchetta is a pork shoulder with the fat and skin attached.  It is slowly cooked so the skin becomes crunchy while the meat becomes ridiculously tender.  The skin, attached to the fat cap, is […]

**UPDATE**  The winner of the Microplane was #43 (as chosen by Random.org).  Congratulations to Amanda from The Two Boos Who Eat! We have ham today, but first … how about a giveaway? Because it is the Holidays, and because I appreciate all my readers more than I can express, I am giving away one of […]

Slow-Cooker Braised Short Ribs with Honey Garlic Glaze

Braising is one of my favorite ways to prepare tough cuts of meat. This slow method of cooking breaks down the connective tissues and fat making otherwise tough cuts of meat tender, juicy, and very flavorful.  I almost feel bad for people who have no idea how wonderful cheap cuts can be.  Of the cheap […]
