Braised Short Ribs and Grilled Persimmons #FeastNearby #Sponsor

I created this recipe with complimentary items from Melissa's Produce. All opinions are my own.

Thanks to Melissa's Produce for some lovely persimmons. While I was tempted to just peel and eat them straight from the box, I decided to showcase them in a savory dish...my main dish for the November #WinePW #FeastNearby event. Please note, these are the short Fuyu persimmons and not the more conical Hachiya ones.


Ingredients serves 6
  • 2 to 2-1/2 pounds beef short ribs
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 1 organic onion, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 T butter
  • 1 C beef stock
  • 1/2 C red wine 
  • 1/4 C freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 to 3 organic persimmons, peeled and quartered
  • 2 persimmons, thickly sliced


Procedure
Preheat an oven to 350ºF. Season short ribs liberally with salt and pepper. Set aside.

In a Dutch oven, melt 1 T butter in 2 T olive oil. Add the onions and cook until just translucent. 


Add the short ribs to the pan. Sear for 2 to 3 minutes per side. Pour in the stock, red wine, and orange juice. Bring liquid to a boil. 


Add in the persimmons and cover the pot. 


Place it in the oven to braise for 2-1/2 to 3 hours. The meat should be tender and almost falling off the bone. 


Just before serving, grill your persimmon slices just enough to get pronounced grill marks. I used a cast iron grill pan.


Serve over a bed of polenta or rice...whatever you prefer.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
