Inauguration dinner: Momofuku 48 hour short ribs

JohnInCarolinaJohnInCarolina Posts: 19,321
A riff off the recipe in Dave Chang’s cookbook.  Starts with the marinade:



Cook the vegetables down and strain, put about a cup in the vacuum sealed bag with a few ribs.  I don’t always double bag, but when I’m SV-ing for 48 hours, well...



They’re in there for 48 hrs at 60C.  You take them out and save the juice for like a gravy. Strain the juice and reduce at a low simmer.  The ribs come out of the bags, then you remove the bone and slice them in half to get them ready for... FRYING!



Fry in grape seed oil at 365F for 3-4 minutes.  I think that’s actually a bit too long as these turned out darker than I wanted so just watch the color and mind the clock.  

Plated over a small pool of sauce, wasabi mashed potatoes, with a drizzle of homemade Korean bbq sauce:



Not a BGE cook but you could probably do these on an Egg if you really wanted to.  Or not.  Maybe just buy a sous vide and learn something new.  Thanks for looking!

    Wow, just wow.

    Was going to ask a smart ass question to see if frying was still allowed under the Paris Agreement, but then realized it was funnier in my head. 

    Nice cook, I have enjoyed watching some of David’s Netflix shows- need to give this one a try.

    ..you mean there are other types of food other than teriyaki boneless, skinless chicken breasts, teriyaki beef kabobs and half inch steaks?

    Dude! That is my kind of meal. Great work.
    I really like Chang. 
    Thank you for sharing.

    Food looks great. I'm a big fan of Chang, but man the New Orleans episode was hard to watch.

    Great plate of edibles you got there and looks like it was worth the effort.

    I may have misinterpreted it, but something about the New Orleans episode felt like legitimate punching down. I don't want to spoil it for you, but I kind of felt bad for some of the restaurant owners.  Maybe New Orleans cuisine is outdated and there's better methods to cook seafood, I don't know, but putting these old chefs on blast to their face made for awkward television.

    Hmm.  That doesn’t sound like Chang.  I’ll have to check it out.

    Those look most excellent. Tender with the added crispness from frying sounds like a winner.

    Yeah it's interesting Gary how you get that mix with this approach.  The frying step adds quite a bit I think.

    LOR. DEE. Looks incredible!  I love David Chang, and recently bought this Momofoku cookbook.  This might have to be our first cook out of it!! Thanks for sharing the inspiration!

    It’s a good amount of advance planning but definitely worth trying.  Enjoy!

    Wow that looks amazing. 
  • That is one great looking inauguration plate. 

    There was a lot of loose talk here in The 302 of honoring 46 by getting take out from one of his faves, The Charcoal Pit.  See it here:  https://charcoalpit.net/.  Fortunately, we decided to save The Pit for another auspicious occasion.  [Although their black and white malted got us through many a rough month (week/day) over 2 pregnancies (28 years of marital bliss) and, the harmonious mixing of those colors and flavors would have been a nice compliment to some of the themes I hope will be ascendant during this presidency and beyond.]  [But NO POLITICS!!]

    Anyway, as someone new to sous vide and a huge Dave Chang fan, I'm loving this cook.  That said, while I'm pretty sure I can get short ribs in here using a one-time exemption to the prevailing 2021 Healthy Eating Rules presently in effect, I'm absolutely certain I'd get flagged for finishing them by frying.  I bet they'd be pretty good with a nice CI sear, right? 
    It's a 302 thing . . .

    Likely nearly as good with the CI sear.  

    But I would also encourage you to get a little oil going in a pot and just try a single piece fried.  I mean, anything is OK in moderation, right?  ;)
