Slow-Cooked Korean Short Ribs With Green Onion and Pear

Sunday Supper Jennifer Olvera 5 comments

Braised short ribs are one of the most comforting of comfort foods, but they're not exactly summer fare. By borrowing some tricks from Korean cooking—such as flavoring them with a kalbi-style sauce and topping them with refreshing green onion and pear—this version transforms them into a warm-weather-friendly main course.

Slow-Smoked Porterhouse Steaks

J. Kenji López-Alt 2 comments

Smoking is generally a method reserved for long-cooking, tough cuts like pork shoulder, ribs, or beef brisket, intended to deeply flavor and tenderize the meat over the course of a half day of cooking. But with a bit of finesse and a couple hours of free time, it's perfectly possible to get that same smoky flavor into a thick-cut steak and still have it come out perfectly medium-rare and juicy, so long as you play your cards right. Here's how it's done. More

Cowboy Beans From 'The Homesick Texan's Family Table'

Kate Williams 10 comments

Cowboy beans, for the uninitiated, are Texan baked beans, spiked with coffee and often some kind of beef. Lisa Fain's recipe in her new cookbook, The Homesick Texan's Family Table, offer a bit of a twist on the usual dish—instead of using fresh beef in the beans, she stirs in diced beef jerky. More

Seared Skirt Steak With Blistered Cherry Tomatoes and Polenta

J. Kenji López-Alt 8 comments

Polenta is the kind of stuff that's just begging for a flavorful sauce to be spooned into it. But pan-seared steak doesn't really provide much sauce of its own. The solution: Toss some juicy cherry tomatoes and chilies into the skillet as the steak finishes cooking. Their natural juices pick up the flavorful pan drippings and—with just a touch of olive oil—emulsify into a rich, flavor-packed pan sauce. More

Shredded Beef Enchiladas With Three-Chile Sauce From 'The Homesick Texan's Family Table'

Kate Williams 5 comments

I didn't grow up in Texas, but I did eat my fair share of Tex-Mex as a kid. Saucy burritos, sizzling fajitas, and giant bowls of cheese dip all hold fond places in my heart, even as I have grown to love a two-bite chorizo taco much. One of my favorite dishes to order at these restaurants was the enchilada platter, drenched in red sauce and smothered in melty Mexican blend cheese. More

Stir-Fried Beef With Kale and Frisée in Black Bean Sauce

Shao Z. 5 comments

This dish, which is made up of equal parts beef and greens in a light but flavor-packed black bean sauce with garlic doesn't quite qualify as a side dish, and seeing as I'm using a mixture of kale and frisée—two decidedly Western greens—it doesn't quite qualify as "Chinese greens" either. But the basic techniques I use in ut—just a quick stir-fry with no blanching—is a method that works with any kind of hearty green leafy vegetable, whether it's Chinese or not. More

Grilled Steaks With Roasted Tomato Dipping Sauce (Crying Tiger, or Suea Rong Hai Kap Jaeo Ma-Khuea Thet) From 'Simple Thai Food'

Kate Williams 2 comments

Like son-in-law eggs, this "crying tiger" dish of grilled steak with spicy tomato sauce has a mysterious name. No one really knows if the tiger is crying because the steaks are good or bad, or if the sauce is just so spicy that it generates tears. I'm inclined to believe the latter, because if you're grilling rib-eye, it'd be a shame to serve it tough. More

Homemade Italian Beef

Nick Kindelsperger 7 comments

Recreating an authentic Italian beef at home sounds easy, but it's surprisingly hard to do without an industrial meat slicer. I don't know about you, but that's one piece of kitchen gear that I don't have. Fortunately, if you give up on roasting the beef yourself, there's another way. More
