Great for a weeknight, slow cooker chicken carnitas don’t need to be pre-cooked. Just combine chicken thighs and spices in the slow cooker and let them go. Right before serving, shred the chicken and broil it until tender and crisp. Use the carnitas in tacos, burrito bowls, or to make taco salads. With Cinco de Mayo this year falling while Kansas City (and many other places in the world) are still under stay-at-home orders, it’s a good year to get creative with some Mexican-inspired food at home! Mexican and TexMex meals are a staple of our weeknight routine (see Slow...

Tejal Rao’s 10 essential Indian recipes

My grandmother cooked in an embroidered cotton caftan and rubber flip-flops, getting all of her prep out of the way in the morning, sometimes enlisting my help with tedious potato-peeling or kneading. Blasting Hindi movie soundtracks on the radio, she built the seasonal Gujarati dish undhiyu, a specialty of the city of Surat, with purple yams and plantains, flat hyacinth beans and teeny eggplants, all of it layered in a giant, lipped stainless-steel pot and left to cook slowly over the charcoal outside. This didn’t happen in India, but in Kenya. I’m a part of the diaspora. Born in London...

Staying put at home during the corona virus pandemic can make you feel a bit stir crazy but it’s also an opportunity to try something fun and new

This week, I experimented with making super easy Chinese barbecued ribs. The idea came from grocery shopping and realizing that people had bought up a lot of chicken and ground beef. Pork wasn’t as popular. I’m prone to ‘pity purchasing’ and ended up buying a nearly four-pound slab of baby back ribs at Costco. Looking for a simple and fun recipe that used pantry ingredients lingering in my fridge, I decided to apply a Joyce Chen Cookbook recipe to the ribs. Filled with unfussy information, the book was written in 1962, and I’ve made a great fried rice recipe from...

Raise your hand if you crushed half racks of BBQ pork ribs on the reg when you were 12 years old

I’m raising my hand. I’ve always loved ribs slathered in BBQ sauce. There is nothing like tender juicy meat and sticky sauce. Yes, it gets all over your hands and face but it’s worth every bite. Well, lucky for you and me, cooking a full rack of pork ribs in the oven has never been easier. Picture sticky ribs, covered in a sweet and smokey dry rub and topped with your favorite BBQ sauce (Sweet Baby Ray’s anyone?). Removing the Silverskin Before we do any seasoning, you’ll want to check to see if the ribs still have the silverskin intact...
