1 ⅔ tbsp. + ½ tsp. kosher salt
17 eggs, separated, discard yolks
1 lb. + 5 ½ oz. cornstarch
8 oz. minced serrano peppers
2 lb. + 11 oz. diced yellow onion, unpeeled
2 lb. + 11 oz. diced green peppers
2 lb. + 11 oz. diced red peppers
2 qt. Thai chili sauce
2 ¾ cup creamy peanut butter
½ cup + 2 ⅔ tbsp. pure sesame oil
5 ½ oz. salad oil
11 oz. green onions

Steps

  1. Mix beef with salt, egg whites and cornstarch.
  2. Preheat both fryer and grill to 350°F.
  3. Mix chili sauce and peanut butter together; hold.
  4. Carefully place short loin into fryer, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Fry for 3 to 4 minutes and drain in perforated pan.
  5. As soon as beef comes out of fryer, spread vegetable oil over grill. Add serranos, bell peppers and onions to grill. Stir-fry for two to three minutes. Add beef to vegetable mixture. Pour sauce mixture over and stir-fry for 2 to 3 minutes, or until heated through.

For some operators, the move was too little, too late. Now, they have to answer to employees who had been briefed on promised wage increases.

With a budget and timeline in place, and the support of the university behind them, the foodservice team at the University of Chicago Medical Center was ready to get rolling with the renovation of one of its patient services kitchens.

But that didn’t mean immediately jumping in with steel and screws.

When the FoodService Director editors first started tossing around the idea of an “influencers” issue, our minds immediately turned to, well, foodservice directors. After all, so much of the learning in this industry is a peer-to-peer experience, and it’s your influence that inspires the content in every single issue of this magazine.

Then we imagined the massive infighting that would occur if we tried to whittle ourselves down to a list of just 20 influential operators and thought better of it. There’s already enough arguing for us to do about which pizza toppings are best (...

Where possible, we make grab-and-go items reimbursable. For example, if we’re serving a fruit and milk smoothie, we let students take a granola bar or other grain component to make it count as a meal.
