Beef Short Rib, The Nice Cuts

A 1:2 LB. BEEF SHORT RIB MEAT

The meat of the beef short rib is one of my favorites. It’s soft chewy, but if cut across the grain, it is very tender. Great for searing, and cooked medium rare to medium.

A BEEF SHORT RIB SEASONED IN PAN

Seasoned with salt, pepper, and garlic powder, then seared in a hot pan with some cooking oil for about 2 1/2 minutes per side.

Flipped and cooked for another 2 1/2 minutes, the garlic powder makes the whole kitchen smell nice.

Now the presentation here isn’t the best. However, friends can delve in this for pupus. And a glass of Merlot, or some IPA.

Breakfast For 1, Quick Personal Cooking

I do cook for singles, if you are a single, and want a decent breakfast, I’ll whip up something for you fast! Starts for as little as $40.00. Now remember, you are paying for my services. And if you haven’t had a good home cooked breakfast lately it’s well worth the price.

Want two over easy eggs with sausage? Can do. Now, $40.00? OK, I’ll make you a few of the same dish I’ll be cooking for you, and then ziplock bag it, and stick it in the fridge for you, for later eating. Got a microwave? Perfect! Now $40.00 sound like a deal right?

CIGARS AT CRIME SCENE

 

My new pupu (appetizer) creation called, “Cigars At Crime Scene.” How’d I come upon that? Well in my test kitchen, I found 3, ready to expire Maui style hot dogs, the red casing ones. And I had leftover rice papers because a friend hired me to make him some Vietnamese style Spring Rolls. Anyway, I decided to wrap each hot dog with the rice wrappers, and fry them. I tried to fancy the presentation, but the Sriracha I was using somehow wasn’t holding right, it was pretty runny, so instead of a nice steady stream to drizzle like most chefs do, it came out like blood splatters. Hence the name of the dish, hey it worked.

Lunches for 2, Totally Healthy

Sometimes there’s nothing like a great lunch cooked at home. Maybe you’re not a cook, or you are, but just plain tired of cooking! Have no fear, Chef Ron is here. I do the shopping, prepping, and cooking, serving, and clean up.

Recently I cooked for a couple here on Maui. They wanted something healthy. So I suggested a roasted chicken breast, a whole one. Weighed about two pounds with the bone and skin on. Now skin on? Healthy? Well, OK, you got me there, but it’s a little more healthy than eating… fried chicken smothered with mayonnaise.

This is the menu for their lunch.

CHICKEN SANDWICH –¬†Chicken Breast (Whole) Roasted, dusted with paprika, salt, pepper, garlic powder. Sliced. All Grain sandwich bread, tomatoes, lettuce, onions, mustard. Side of chips (Quality Organic brand).

FRESH LIME WATER- Homegrown fresh limes, sliced and squeezed into fresh filtered ice cold water.

In an hour, the chicken breast was roasted, rested, and sliced. Then made into sandwiches. As we waited for the roasting, I sliced up the rest of the chicken. Making stock from the backbone. And sliced off the wings, and legs for them to cook later. The husband said he’d grill it. Hey that’s easy and the best way since it’s summer time.
