Spiced Ginger Short Ribs {Pass the Cookbook}
It's Pass the Cookbook time again...this was all started by Kita, the culinary force  Pass the Sushi blog. This month we had the option of cooking one of three recipes from Sunny's Kitchen: Easy Food for Real Life by Sunny Anderson: Loaded Puff Pastry Sticky Buns, Spicy Macaroni and Cheese, and - the recipe I decided to adapt - Honey BBQ Short Ribs. Here's my...

Spiced Ginger Short Ribs

1/4 cup sweet paprika
1 T smoked paprika
1 T garlic powder
1 T freshly ground pink Himalaya salt
1/2 t cumin
1 crushed tepin chile pepper
freshly ground black pepper
3 pounds bone-in short ribs
1/2 C ginger syrup


Combine the paprikas, garlic powder, salt, cumin, tepin pepper, and a few grinds of black pepper in a small bowl.

Rub the mixture all over the short ribs and let rest for no longer than 2 hours at room temperature. 

Preheat the oven to 275°F.

In an baking dish, place the short ribs with the fat side facing up.

Cover tightly with foil and place in the oven.

Roast low and slow for about 2 1/2 – 3 hours until the meat is falling off the bones.

Remove from the oven and, using tongs, flip the short ribs, coating them a bit in their own juices.  Drizzle the short ribs evenly with the ginger syrup and re-cover with aluminum foil, taking care to vent one corner a bit. 

Place back in the oven and roast for 30 minutes more.

Serve with a green salad and enjoy!


  1. The ribs look good! I bet they'd be great served with the mac and cheese too ;-)

  2. Ribs look awesome! I made the mac and cheese, but I may have to make these this weekend!

  3. Oooh... these look so good! The ribs looked the most intimidating of all the recipes, so I didn't make it. Kicking myself now! ;-)

  4. Sounds really tasty, I bet the flavor from the ginger syrup is wonderful! My man would have really loved this too :) cheers glad to meet you!

  5. I had such a hard time picking this month. Your ribs looks like they would warm you right up from the inside out.

  6. What a great adaptation. I love the warm and perfect for fall.

  7. Man I could go for some short ribs tonight.. super cozy.

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Aloo Tiki {Pakistan}

To start off our Pakistani culinary adventure, I started us off with aloo tiki - potato cutlets. I'm always game for tasty street food. I found a couple of different recipes and incorporated those together for this version. Ingredients 6-8 small red potatoes, scrubbed 1 T cumin seeds 1 T fresh chopped parsley 1/2 t ground coriander 1 t minced garlic Procedure Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and let cool. Mash the potatoes. Traditionally they are mashed without their skins. I left the skins on. In a small pan, toast the cumin seeds on high heat until the begin to give off an aroma and begin to darken. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate to keep them from cooking any more. Blend all of the spices into the mashed potatoes, then shape into small patties. If you wet your hands, the potato mixture won't stick to them. Heat a splash of oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Dip each patty into beaten egg and carefully place in the oil. P
