A Nod to Aunty Marialani

Waaaay back when, there was a local comedian that did a skit, “Aunty Marialani’s Cooking Show” (I think it’s still on YouTube).

Anyways that was the inspiration for today, except instead of turkey or chicken, the protein of choice was …

Beef Shank

Beef Shank

I was going to do another beer braise but then I remembered we had a bottle in the back of the pantry.

Wine

Wine

A little more pricey than “two-buck chuck” but not by much. Plus, since this is SPAM land, barefoot is appropo.Β Hee hee.

Winner!

Winner!

Should be good, right?

And, following Aunty Marialani’s instructions, I did taste first, just to see if “just right”.

Beef shank, wine, miso, mushrooms, all in.

Not the most photogenic, but The Cat approves (not of the picture, but of the food). The “broth” will be used for The Cat’s noodles during the week.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Braised Pork

You’ve seen it done here, at least a couple of times. One of our favorite ways.

This time, a little pork belly, a little pork loin (leaner), miso paste, and some little “extras”.

Peanuts

And …

Beer

Wanted an Asian beer (Sapporo, Qingdao, Kirin, something), but none at the market.

Hauled out “the Martha” …
