Skirt steak is anything but typical basted with oil and MINOR'S® Red Chile Adobo Flavor Concentrate. Grilled to medium-rare perfection, sliced and served atop Spanish rice with a side of mixed roasted vegetables tossed with fire-roasted poblano, olive oil and sea salt.

Ingredients

24 oz Beef loin, Skirt Steak
3 oz Olive oil
1.25 oz Minor's® Red Chile Adobo Flavor Concentrate Gluten Free (6x13.6oz)
2.75 oz Minor's® Fire Roasted Poblano Flavor Concentrate Gluten Free (6x13.6oz)
1 oz Olive oil
16 oz California blend vegetables, frozen

Steps

  1. Mix together the olive oil and Red Chile Adobo Flavor Concentrate. Rub on steak. Set aside for at least 30 minutes up to 24 hours.
  2. Combine Fire Roasted Poblano Flavor Concentrate and olive oil in a large mixing bowl. Toss the vegetable blend in the poblano oil and mix until the vegetables are evenly coated.
  3. Roast vegetables in a convection oven at 375°F for 10-12 minutes or until hot and slightly caramelized.
  4. Place steak on a preheated grill and cook over high heat to medium rare. Let rest.
  5. Slice steak and plate with vegetables on the side.

“This is the best meatloaf I’ve ever had,” a diner at Alcatel-Lucent telecommunications in Naperville, Ill., once told chef Iraj Fernando. The dish was rooted in a tried-and-true source—the “Betty Crocker Cookbook.”

“I just seasoned the breadcrumbs differently, used fresh parsley and beat the eggs to make them frothier,” says Fernando, executive chef and manager for Southern Foodservice Management.

Consumer interest is up for classic and comforting meat dishes like meatballs (16%), beef pot pie (26%) and meatloaf (12%) for dinner now compared to two years ago, shows...

With all the hype around probiotics, we decided to create a daily dish that incorporates probiotics in addition to prebiotics. You rarely hear about prebiotics, and this was a great way to highlight how the two work synergistically to maintain a healthy gut. Our chefs have developed menu items such as roasted salmon with yogurt and mint vinaigrette; kale and quinoa salad with warm maple dressing; and leek soup with pickled cucumbers, to name a few.

While the multiple-choice questions on FoodService Director’s annual census surveys are a great way of gathering data on trends, I’ve always been rather partial to the open-ended queries. We can’t possibly think up every answer operators might have to a particular question, and it gives respondents a chance to show some personality as well. (A special nod to one cheeky operator’s not-quite-safe-for-work response to how they’re tackling shortened lunch periods—you made my day.)

So this year, for the first time since I’ve been at FoodService Director, I chose to include a very open-...

chicken dinner

For the last three years, we’ve hosted an event called Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner. We sponsor the local chapter of Future Farmers of America to raise the chickens, and we have to arrange all the transporting from farms to the distributor, which keeps the birds in a freezer until we’re ready. We build hype by having students vote on the proprietary spice blend they would like on the chicken. It helps the nutrition team get involved in the educational process and showcase local food purchasing.
