Frog Legs

Frog Legs in Restaurants

My personal experience with Frog Legs has been, up close and personal, in the South, where all good things seem to get bigger, better and bolder with egos and good old fashioned Southern Hospitality(which is amazing by the way).  Frog Legs are on the menus at many of the localized restaurants, including Chinese Buffets.  So I’ve had my fair share of recipes out there and I have learned a lot about what folks expect them to taste like.  So trust this recipe, because, I think you’re really going to enjoy it!

If you’re interested in another bizarre recipe, check out my Fried Chicken Feet.  And while you’re busting out the fryer for these frog legs, consider making my Crispy Fried Onion Rings or my Sweet Potato Fries.  Both recipes are excellent.

Fried Frog Legs Ingredients:

6 whole Frog Leg halves or 12 Legs total

1/2 cup Corn Flour
1/4 cup Potato Starch

Braised Short Ribs – Northern Style Recipe

Braised Short Ribs

These Short Ribs Rock!

Braising Short Ribs usually calls for some sort of pan fry before they’re cooked in vegetable broth, right?  The only difference here is that the frying is done after and as strange as that may sound, the benefits are phenomenal. They are different from most recipes out there, I’ll give you that one, but if you sink your teeth into this Short Ribs recipe, you are going to get flavor beyond flavor, with a texture and tenderness your mouth and stomach just won’t believe.

This Short Ribs recipe also has an Asian influence.  For example, there’s Soy Sauce and Sugar.  But So what!  What Barbecue Sauce doesn’t have sugar in it?  None! Everybody sweetens up their sauce with something.  And I don’t think Corporate Chains like P.F. Chang’s would have a recipe like this one on their Menu if these ribs weren’t amazing.  And that’s exactly what they are.  These Braised Short Ribs are amazing.  But don’t take my word for it, though.  Look up Northern Style Short Ribs, yourself, and tell me what you find.

Braised Short Ribs Ingredients:

1 Rack of Pork Ribs
1 1/2 qt. Chicken Broth
1/3 cup Soy Sauce
1/3 cup Rice Wine
1/3 cup Sugar (Optional)
3 or 4 Garlic Cloves
1/2 tsp Ginger, chopped (optional)
1 bunch Green Onions, 6 to 8
1 Sprig Cilantro
1 tsp Anise
1/2 tsp Black Pepper
1 tsp Sesame Oil
Water for Poaching

Topping

2 tbsp Sugar
1/2 tsp Five Spice Powder (or cinnamon)

In a large cooking pot, fill halfway with water and bring it to a boil on the stove.  Clean the rack of ribs with a clean water rinse, then remove the membrane using a paper towel.  Score the back side of the ribs(bone side) with your knife, then cut in between every rib bone, separating one from the other.  Place the ribs into the boiling water and Poach for 20 to 25 Minutes.  Remove from heat, strain and rinse the ribs and clean off any cooked blood.  Place the ribs back into the same pot and add all the above ingredients.  Bring the Broth to a boil then reduce heat to medium and cook for approximately 1 hour.  Then pull out every individual rib and place them on a pan.  At this point the ribs can be eaten or refrigerated if you’d like to wait or skip the frying process, otherwise fry the ribs, 6 at a time at 350 degrees for about 2 minutes. Mix the Topping ingredients together and toss the ribs in a bowl with 1 tbsp of the Sugar and Five Spice mix and serve the Braised Short Ribs, Log Cabin style, 2 over 2, over 2.
