Cuban Braised Shredded Beef (Ropa Vieja)

Cuban Braised Shredded Beef (Ropa Vieja) I loved braised beef. I adore Cuban food. Mixing them together makes this boy very happy. Traditional Cuban Braised Shredded Beef or more commonly known in Cuba as Ropa Vieja it a two step process and adds considerable time to making the dish. I think taking the extra steps to deepen the flavor profile can be excellent if you have all day to do it. I ain’t got that time folks. I suspect that neither do you. This is why I love this recipe as it combines building a beef stock and blooming...

I believe that braising transforms basic cuts of meats (Pork Shoulders, Beef Chuck Roasts, Lamb Shanks) to...

Pork and Pineapple Fried Rice

Pork and Pineapple Fried Rice I love fried rice.  When ever I go to a Benihana style Teppanyaki Japanese steak house, I make it a point to get BOTH friend noodles and their fried rice dish. I do find that most restaurants make their friend rice with generic pieces of meat. In this recipe we combine the use of both seared ground beef and sweet, Chinese sausage.  You can find a wide assortment of sausages at many mega-mart stores like Costco and Sams Club that you could substitute by using the thick cut maple-cured bacon. Here is our adaptation of...
