Usually I fry these wonton wrappers to make spicy tuna tostadas but I’ve always wanted to use them to make tacos. I’ve never seen wonton wrappers used like this before but they make perfect bite size hard tacos.

Sundays have always been dedicated to hangovers and good food. This past weekend we grilled up some ginger pork, pork belly skewers and Wagyu beef lettuce wraps with pickled cucumber, daikon and red onions with a sauce made from lemon, scallions, ginger and soy sauce.

The Wagyu beef started melting just sitting in room temperature
who’s down to grill next weekend?
Yakiniku in Japanese means “grilled meat” or in it’s broadest sense, refers to grilled meat dishes. Last night we had Wagyu beef, Berkshire pork sausages and thinly sliced beef tongue. Any Asian male will tell you grilled meat and rice is in the same category as sex, cars and alcohol.
Thinly sliced beef tongue is one of my favorites…
Beef Bourguignon (Burgundy), where have you been all my life? Slow cooking is easy and well worth it- throw everything in a pot for 2-3 hours, stirring every 20 minutes and the outcome is the most tender meat and mouth-watering sauce.

I also added both fresh and black garlic. They make black garlic by fermenting whole bulbs at a high temperature. The results are a umami rich sweet and syrupy flavor. Check out the difference between the two
While the stew was cooking I diced some potatoes, seasoned and steamed. Then left aside till the stew was ready
After about an hour I added some carrots and bacon
Left the pot on low heat for another hour and a half (or longer)
You know the beef is done when it’s tender enough to break apart with a fork. This was definitely done…
I have no clue what cut of beef this is but it’s on sale at Ralph’s right now, this big ass piece was only $4+!! I just marinated it overnight, browned it with butter and oil in a frying pan and threw it in the oven (350 degrees) till the internal temp was at 125 (about a hour). It turned out amazing…
