This recipe is a spin off from a recipe from Edward Lee's cookbook. He makes delicious pork curry pies. We loved the pie vehicle and decided on jamaican flavors. Our main ingredients are beef shank, scotch bonnet peppers, pimento berries and onion.

Short Ribs cooked in Barolo wine is a delicious version of a ragu. You can make the Short Rib a few days before you serve. This recipe serves 4 with room for leftovers!
This chili is not to be confused with our Arrogant Bastard Chili. This is a whole new thing. We made a roux and cooked our fresh veggies in this to make this dish rich and flavorful. The roux gives the chili its red velvet color. Like any FullBellyBlog dish this is no ordinary dish. This chili is made without beans, hamburger meat, and tomatoes. We used our pressure cooker to speed up the cooking time but if you don’t have a pressure cooker (get one) you can cook this on the stove until the meat is tender.
Danny and I have started playing a new game when we make dinner. It is very similar to the Food Network show “Chopped”. Danny picked out ingredients, presented them, and I had to cook a dish with them. These ingredients weren’t as difficult as you see on the show but this is a great way to challenge yourself to be creative.
Most Gringos, ourselves included, don’t know much about Mexican food. The elaborate preparations and regional intricacies are usually lost in the typical, one-size-fits-all “joints” one finds north of the border. It’s a shame. Mexican food: the soulful child of European and Mayan parents, rivals any cuisine in assertive style and compelling flavor. Lizzie and I are two certified “Gringos” from the tri-state area and have begun the journey into our southern neighbor’s cuisine with Rick Bayless, author of Everyday Mexican, as our guide. We have customized one of his recipes for Enchiladas from Mexico City, for our Enchiladas De Dos Gringos.
A friend of ours is currently living in Thailand. Since we are obsessed with different types of food we started wondering what great stuff she had been eating out there. Asian food is something that Danny and I have barely explored. When our friend said she loved Pad Krapow Moo we decided lets make this into one of our favorite things. A sandwich! Danny loves using the pressure cooker I got him for Christmas, so we decided to cook the pork with this. We got our ingredients at an Asian market in town. If you don't have any near you, you can always substitute any thing you cant find. Be creative!
