We hear many things in our day and wonder how real. Many years ago I heard of a drastic difference between ulcers in the USA and Mexico. Even those who consumed too much alcohol in Mexico seemed to have much less problems with ulcers. The investigation was many years ago when one could… MORE

About this Cook
My wife is Filipino and a fantastic cook. She has even taught cooking on television in the Philippines. I, she says, make better spaghetti sauce and chili but all the rest, she has me beat!
My favorite things to cook
I am a super meat eater as many of us men are. I love fish but American prices are insane for fish. I have yet to ask my wife how to make Polabok sp? and it is knock out good. My wife likes it with her prawns and I like it with beef.
My favorite family cooking traditions
One my Mom use to make that was really good was a beef goulash with kidney beans. The beans were a small add in. She used elbow mac for the pasta. It was great. Her secret? Sweet paprika at the end. I liked that better than my five star chili at times.
My cooking triumphs
As Wolfgang Puck always told us, experiment gives the best of cooks. One of my favorites, of course is chili. My neighbors, mostly the men for all the meat in it, came and asked, Brother, you have chili today? I have checked many many world class chili recipes and mine always were better. Of course it would depend on how hot one likes their food. Cayenne is a good, yet hot spice that actually is proven to heal the stomach! God or nature, whatever you want to suggest made some wild things that act the opposite of what one would suspect! I would suggest nature is only a product of design just like our recipes.
My cooking tragedies
My Step Father and Mother are with God now but one time they came to visit. I had chili on the stove. But Mom had made some goulash. Dad asked to trade for my chili. Well, he did not know the cayenne was good for him! It was too hot because he had the idea hot means stomach damage. Truth is it can, but not with cayenne! He ate some and had to leave the bowl. Cayenne users, especially male cooks tend to make chili very hot, but with the cayenne and not other peppers.

Ronaldo's Beef Carnitas
I looked at the ingredients and do not see Cayenne pepper but just chili pepper. I use a little chili mix and add the Cayenne. Sweetness is obtained by the use of Paprika at the end of cooking. I seldom bake anything. You must stir any recipe with Paprika or/and cumin. The cumin is added about half way and the paprika near the end, but stir! I use ground beef instead of sliced as it is easier to eat!

Classic Goulash
I add two tablespoons of Paprika! It was Mom's recipe... she finally told that secret! It gives that sweetness without the sugar!

Cliff's Hot Sauce
The hotness of the sauce depends on the peppers. Make sure you go to where you have experienced their peppers so it will be closer to the hotness you desire. I would add more onion and I mean the small white hot kind along with a touch of apple cider vinegar. We should note there is no sugar!!! Thus the 4 stars!
