eggrolls#GoJunkFood Presents Egg Rolls

With all apologies to the #GoJunkFood crowd, this post is incredibly late (like months late), but as a few sharp people have noticed, I haven’t exactly been posting a lot.  Which is no good.

Most importantly, though, I must say sorry to the egg rolls.  You should have your story told to the world so you can be eaten.  You deserve it.

And if I don’t say something about you, egg rolls, who will?

Egg Rolls

Okay, that’s just silly.  Just about everyone who digs Chinese food (and many who don’t) love egg rolls and why not?  They’re fried.  Fried is awesome.  And they have pork inside.  Pork is awesome.

Homemade Gyoza

Okay, last one I swear.  It’s just having to eat the same thing four days in a row really gets my creativity going.  So in this post for Thanksgiving turkey leftovers, we’re going to make

So, we are taking Turkey to the Orient with this recipe.  It’s just a simple dumpling recipe using storebought gyoza or wonton wraps.  No fuss, no muss.  Just a delicious turkey dish completely different than what you’ve been eating!

Braised Short RibsSo, somehow this week has become braised week…but hey, braising leads to some really delicious food, so why not go with it?  Tonight you can make…

Asian Braised Short Ribs

Okay Cara…this one is for you!

Short ribs are some of the most flavorful pieces of meat that you can get your hand on.  They are thick, meaty, but they can be a little tough.  Of course, that just makes them excellent candidates for braising, which will break apart those tough meat fibers and add some awesome flavor at the same time.
