It seems like everywhere you turn at the grocery store or your local restaurant you see meat substitutes popping up. But, isn’t beef really the ultimate substitute? It can make any dish more delicious, more special, more of a celebration. Chef Kaleena Bliss shows off how anyone can beef up an all-American staple. She levels up BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Kalbi Braised Beef Sandwiches for the flavor win. The Substitute: Beef Short Ribs braised in an umami-rich Kalbi sauce before building a delicious sandwich that will be your new favorite hand-held meal.
In a small sauce pot, heat 16 ounces red wine vinegar, 10 ounces water, and 4 ounces sugar until dissolved. Cool down viegar mixture to lukewarm and add 1 julienned red onion. Lay a layer of saran wrap loosely over the surface of the liquid and onions to ensure that all of the onions are submerged. Put in fridge and let cool completely.
