Menudo Rojo (Red Menudo)

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2015
I love this recioe. This was my first time to make menudo and it was super easy! But I have to admit, I did a lot of tweaking to it because we just like certain things a certain way. I washed the tripe really well and then soaked it in a bowl with salt and vinegar (about 15min) before boiling it. For the next pot, I am going to let it soak for at least an hour or so before cooking. I also 1/2 the water and added beef stock, beef shank, doubled the garlic (because we like our garlic), and added an extra Tbs of the red chili powder because we also like a little heat to it. The other thing I am going to do for the next pot of menudo is add more of the beef and tripe and cut back on the hominy just because I don't like hominy that much. But the amount suggested in the recipe is spot on to what you would normally get in a restaurant. The other thing is what one other reviewer stated: this should not take 8 hours to make. Maybe 8 hrs in a crockpot but definitely not stove top. Speaking of which, I did finished cooking this in a crockpot. Next time, I will be cooking must of it in a crockpot. Word to the wise: since I have never cooked with tripe before, I didn't realize it smelled SO BAD!!! Be sure to ventilate well. Next time I am going to cook the tripe outside first. But overall, it was delicious and we are super pleased with the results. Can't wait to make another pot.

Chef John's Chimichurri Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2014
To give this recipe a 5 stars is an injustice. It really deserves 10 stars! I made this last night to go with a slow cooked beef shank in a wine reduction. It was amazing!!! The only thing I did differently is add more garlic because we like extra garlic. Other than that, this recipe is good to go as is. My boyfriend and I enjoyed it so much, we ate the whole bowl. Couldn't stop. It was THAT good. Thank you, Chef John for sharing such a fantastic recipe. We very much enjoyed it! No doubt we will be making this again very soon.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
What a great, simple, & delicious recipe!! It was easy enough that my 7 y/o could make it. I did make an adjustment to the recipe. Instead of a cup of all purpose flour, I substituted with a cup of almond flour and about 1 T of flour. It changed the consistency a bit but it was still just as delicious. We really enjoyed these pancakes. Will be a staple recipe in our house.
