Steps

Idaho® potato J&B Hash

  1. Fry the potatoes at 350°F for 12 minutes, or until potatoes are golden brown.
  2. While frying potatoes, sauté onions and peppers until translucent.
  3. Combine all ingredients except the eggs in a large bowl and season liberally.
  4. Place the hash into a mold on each plate and top with two eggs over each mold.

Braised Beef Shortribs

  1. Trim shortribs of excessive exterior fat then coat liberally with barbeque rub.
  2. Place in a cold-smoker and let meat absorb smoke for 2 hours.
  3. Remove and immediately sear shortribs on a very high heat just until evenly browned on all sides.
  4. Place shortribs in a deep-rimmed braising pan and fill halfway with barbeque sauce. Cover with plastic wrap and then foil to form a tight seal. Roast in oven at 300°F for 4.5 hours or until meat falls off the bone.
  5. Remove from oven and shred shortrib meat immediately, using two forks if necessary.
  6. Fold in enough of the cooking liquid to create the desired level of wetness to your shortribs. Note: this may be used as a filling for a delicious barbeque sandwich!

Barbeque Rub

  1. Toss all ingredients together in a large bowl, being careful to break up large pieces of brown sugar.
  2. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 months and can be utilized in any seasoning application.

Barbeque Sauce

  1. Sautee onions and peppers until translucent then add garlic and cook until browned.
  2. Add all remaining ingredients and simmer for 30 minutes, seasoning with salt and pepper.
  3. Remove from heat and blend thoroughly to create your own homemade barbeque sauce.
  4. Store tightly covered and refrigerated for up to 2 months.

Stealth health is so 1998. When author Evelyn Tribole’s original book on sneaking healthy add-ons into meals was published nearly 20 years ago, there may have been a genuine nutrition need to fill. But as today’s diners are increasingly requesting more produce at the center of the plate, another need has taken the lead: a desire for creativity. Here’s how operators are openly blending meat with other ingredients—or eliminating animal products entirely—to take protein to another level.

In April, dining halls at Yale University in New Haven, Conn., began offering the Beyond Burger, a...

Aside from Black Friday shoppers, there may be no crowd of people more eager to get to their bounty than wedding guests headed for the passed appetizers. While they’re surely thrilled for the bride and groom, that feeling comes second to the thrill of landing that first shrimp skewer—especially after a long ceremony. Same goes for work-related cocktail parties. Caught up in an awkward conversation? Oh look, it’s the mini-grilled cheese guy!

Ohio University Director of Culinary Services Rich Neumann was on Wednesday evening awarded NACUFS’ 49th annual Theodore W. Minah Distinguished Service Award, the association’s highest honor.

Neumann’s foodservice career began as an undergraduate at University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point. After his first day as a student cook, he says, his production manager wanted to fire him because he was striving for perfection, not—as she put it—“now and fast.” But he kept with it, eventually moving up to student manager. “If I had quit, I would not be here today,” he says.
