Mongolian Short Rib Pizza

Menu Part: 
Cuisine Type: 

Short ribs are cooked until so tender they fall off the bone to top this pizza. The sweet and spicy meat works well with the creamy and mellow mozzarella cheese.


For Mongolian marinade:
1 1⁄2 cups hoisin sauce
1 tbsp. garlic, minced
1 tbsp. ginger, minced
1 tsp. hot chili sauce

1 cup short rib pieces 
1⁄2 cup teriyaki sauce
1⁄2 cup tomato sauce
4 3-oz. pizza dough balls
1⁄2 cup mozzarella cheese
4 tsp. parmesan cheese
2 oz. red bell pepper, julienned
2 oz. yellow bell pepper, julienned
4 shiitake mushrooms, sliced
Green onion, thinly sliced, as needed
Fried lotus chips, for garnish


1. For Mongolian marinade, mix together hoisin sauce, garlic, ginger and hot chili sauce. Reserve.

2. In a pan, toss short rib pieces with teriyaki and 1⁄2 cup Mongolian marinade. Cook and reduce until meat becomes tender and falls apart, resembling pulled pork.

3. In a separate bowl, mix together tomato sauce with 1⁄2 cup Mongolian marinade; roll dough out and spread sauce evenly over top.

4. Top pizza with mozzarella, parmesan, red and yellow peppers, shiitake mushrooms and short rib mix.

5. Bake in a 550° F. oven for 3-5 min. Remove from oven, top with green onion and fried lotus chips.

We wanted to add sushi, but that’s not really my expertise. So we found a great local company that offered to put three sushi chefs on-site every day. They supply the ingredients, and if we meet the minimum revenue each week, than we receive a percentage of sales. We have been exceeding the weekly minimum sales, which we track in our POS, in two days.

Whether it’s a morning routine, an afternoon pick-me-up or an evening social ritual, few things are as universally appealing as coffee. Sixty-five percent of respondents in Technomic’s 2016 Beverage Consumer Trend Report say they ordered a cup of hot joe from a foodservice location in the past month, and 59% say the same about cold coffee. Everyone has an opinion about what makes it good, whether it’s a low price, a unique blend or a friendly barista.

“Coffee is so personal. There are a lot of people that are Dunkin’ fans. There’s a lot of Starbucks people,” says James Dravenack,...

My favorite event—because I’m kind of dorky—is our “May the fourth be with you” (aka “Star Wars”) day on May 4. The whole dining team dresses up, and we offer things like Chewbaklava, Boba Fettuccine and BB-8 Buckeyes. We had a guest cry because they got to take a picture with Chewy.

Following an initial test at the end of May, Starbucks announced that more than 500 of its stores will be pouring nitro coffee by the end of summer. Capitalizing on the cold-brew coffee trend—which reached $7.9 million in sales in 2015 on 115% growth from the previous year, according to researcher Mintel—select U.S. cafes will give up the counter space to serve the creamy, nitrogen-infused java made from the cold-brew base. But how did nitro become the hottest new thing in coffee?
