Japanese Style Short Ribs
Last weekend we had a couple of my husband works colleagues over for dinner and wanting to impress them with my culinary skills I went in search of a recipe that would knock their socks off. As luck would have it, one night a couple weeks prior to the dinner party I was looking for something to watch and came across a tv show on Netflix called Salt Fat Acid Heat. The first episode drew me in as it took me on a journey to Italy and talked about the role of Fat in food and how it makes particular dishes delicious. The host of the show is a food column writer and book writer Samin Nosrat. Her quirky genuine personality draws you in and makes you feel so comfortable. In the second episode, she takes you on a journey to Japan where you learn the purpose of salt and how not all salts are created equal. This is where I found the recipe for the short ribs. My mouth was watering and I knew I had to make them for our quest. My guest loved them and couldn't stop praising how wonderful they were! Now short ribs aren't cheap to make, but if you have a special occasion these are so worth the few extra dollars. I promise you won't regret it. The only thing I would maybe tweak in the recipe is up the amount of ginger to give the meat just that extra zing. I served the meat with garlic green beans and white rice. Enjoy! Have a great weekend! It's President weekend here in the states, the kids have off till Wednesday. We are hanging low! Addy has been sick with the flu and I am taking a photography course from a really well-known photographer. Can't wait!
