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.

vote buttons pins

On every other Thursday of our four-week cycle menu, we allow K-8 students to pick the entree choices. The media center specialist for each of the participating schools sets up the list of entree items on a computer for voting, and the winning entrees are given to cafeteria managers two weeks before the upcoming month to put into production. Students really like this, as it promotes ownership of the menu.

raised garden beds

We have raised garden beds that residents can reserve and use to grow their own plants. Whenever a resident brings me fresh produce from their own garden, I try and incorporate it into a dish. If I do end up using it, I will display the resident’s name and what the produce was next to the dish on the menu.

Curriculum for the mobile teaching kitchen centers around a single kid-friendly recipe, using ingredients that can provide talking points for nutrition, sustainability and food origins. “The recipe is the lesson,” Saidel says. “Every ingredient is an opportunity to talk.”

Earlier this year, Saidel, Perkins and Harvey did a student demo featuring roasted chicken and white bean tacos with greens and citrus salsa. “We can say, ‘Why are we using chicken instead of beef? Why are there some beans in here?’ You can talk about plant proteins and the sustainability and health message around...
