Adam's Rib: Beef and Pork Ribs

"There is a biblical reference to "Adam's Rib"; I just thought that would be a catchy name for this dish. Here, I've created two wet rubs; New Mexican with chipotle and other classic Latin seasonings. And a Korean-spiced wet rub of low sodium soy sauce, ginger and red pepper flakes. This recipe is similar to what I use in my restaurant where I sear the ribs in a saute' pan, then flambe' with sake for the pork and tequila for the beef before putting the whole pan in a 400 degree oven. (That trick can be dangerous so please stick to the recipe below) Two continents: One dish! Tip: For added tenderness, marinate ribs for up to 10 hours. Bake (Roast) covered in foil at 300 degrees for 30 minutes and then uncovered for an additional 30 minutes to brown. Beorn Hockenhull is the executive chef at DrinkTapasBar in Pomona, CA."

Everyone knows me as "Chef Beorn". I've been cooking professionally since 1994; I attended Le Cordon Bleu at the California School of Culinary Arts in Pasadena. It's great working as a chef because I enjoy making my living "playing" with food. Favorite Dish (this month): Won Tons stuffed with Curry Turkey, Serrano Peppers, Feta Cheese and Cranberry. Pet Peeves: Restaurants who aren't passionate about food and good service. You'll find me teaching culinary arts at Don Lugo High in Chino, Ca or catering special events throughout Southern Cal with I enjoying food and the wonderful atmosphere it creates when combined with great friends. I hope to cook for you soon! Contact me at or 909.236.COOK
