Braised Short Ribs 
with Hoisin-Cranberry Sauce and Asian Coleslaw

I decided to make a main dish with an Asian bent for this third day of #CranberryWeek. So, I created a hoisin-cranberry sauce and slathered it on braised short ribs. And for even more cranberry goodness, I folded dried cranberries into a slaw.

Ingredients
Ribs

  • 6 short ribs
  • 3 to 4 garlic cloves, crushed and minced
  • 1 T minced ginger
  • 1 C beef stock
  • 1/4 C gluten-free soy sauce or tamari
  • 1/4 C rice vinegar
  • 1/4 C kimchi 
  • 1 T hot sauce (here's my recipe)
  • 1 C fresh cranberries
  • 1 C hoisin sauce
  • oil (I used olive oil)
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper

Coleslaw

  • 1/2 C fish sauce
  • 1/2 C rice vinegar
  • 1/2 t dried red chile pepper flakes
  • 2 t organic granulated sugar
  • 4 C cabbage, thinly sliced on a mandolin
  • 1/2 C dried cranberries
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper

Procedure
Ribs
Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees F. In a Dutch oven, heat a splash of olive oil.

Brown the ribs on all sides. Add the garlic and ginger and saute until fragrant. Stir in the ginger and garlic and saute until fragrant.

Pour in the stock, tamari, and rice vinegar. Stir in the kimchi. Bring the liquid to a boil. Cover and place the pot in the oven. Let braise for 1-1/2 hours. Make your hoisin-cranberry sauce in the meantime.

In a medium sauce pan, add a splash of olive oil. Heat the hot sauce, cranberries, and hoisin until the cranberries pop. Process in a blender until a thick paste forms.

After 90 minutes, raise the temperature of the oven to 450 degrees F. 


Uncover the pot and spoon 1 T of sauce on top of each rib. Return the pot to the oven and braise for another 15 minutes.

Coleslaw
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the fish sauce, vinegar, chile flakes, and sugar. Whisk till smooth. Add the cabbage to the dressing and toss to coat completely. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Fold in the dried cranberries and let stand for the flavors to develop for at least 10 minutes.

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!

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
