Prepare a Comforting Bowl of Refried Beans

Refried Beans recipe

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

Growing up in California, a refried bean burrito and hot sauce was a staple lunch that got me through high school and college. After moving to Japan where Mexican restaurants are rare, and a can of beans at a specialty foods shop costs $6, I got to a point where I would have traded in all the sushi and wagyu in the world for a comforting bowl of frijoles refritos with some crumbled queso Cotija and a giant bottle of Valentina salsa picante.

The other day I was shopping at the local market when I saw some hangar steak in the meat case. It’s a cut of beef that literally hangs off the diaphragm of a cow, which is probably where it got its name. With a ragged bloody appearance, it looks about as appetizing as it sounds, but hangar steak is hands-down the most flavorful cut of beef.

If you don’t know what to cook for people, the answer is always enchiladas. It’s always a crowd-pleaser because there aren’t many people in the world who hate flavorful salsa, tortillas and cheese. Even my good friend, Lara, a hater of dogs and Mexican food loved these.

Make Red Onion Jam for a Versatile Condiment

The mere thought of an onion jam may sound crazy to some, but it’s a real thing, and it’s delicious. If you’ve ever tasted fully caramelized onions before, you know they’re incredibly sweet and flavorful. The thing is, when you drive enough moisture out of the onions to get them to caramelize, the onions turn into a thick paste when they cool. This is fine if the onions are going into a soup or sauce, but it makes them hard to use otherwise.

Toss Together a Spring Sunchoke Fava Bean Salad

While spring is one of my favorite seasons, it’s the brief overlap as winter morphs into spring that’s truly magical. It’s a sentiment that’s perfectly captured by verdant crocuses poking their bulbous purple blossoms out from under a blanket of melting snow. In the food department, it’s a similar scene, with the last vestiges of winter’s root vegetables for sale alongside spring onions and peas.
