March is National Peanut Month and March 1 is Peanut Butter Lover’s Day.

 

 

 

 

When we think peanut and peanut butter we usually picture PB&J sandwiches on fresh white bread, peanut butter cookies, peanut brittle, boiled or roasted nuts, and other candies and snacks.  But there is much more to peanut and peanut butter than that; peanuts play a major role in many types of cuisine, special Southeast Asian cuisine.

 

In honor of National Peanut Month and Peanut Butter Lover’s Day here are some recipes for you to try. Just click on the picture or name for recipe.

Instructions
  1. Place short rib pieces and beef broth in a large pot. Add 4-5 cups water, or enough to cover the meat.
  2. Bring to a boil. Turn heat down and simmer for about 45 minutes or until meat is tender.
  3. Meanwhile soak annatto seeds in hot water for at least 30 minutes. Water should turn reddish. Strain seeds out of the water. Reserve the reddish water.
  4. When meat is tender add 1 cup beef stock to the peanut butter and stir until smooth.
  5. Stir in peanut butter mixture into the pot.
  6. Add reserved annatto water. Stir well. Mixture should turn a reddish orange color.
  7. Add veggies and cook until the veggies are done. About 10 minutes depending on the veggies you use.
  8. In a large deep pan sautee minced garlic until it starts to turn brown.
  9. Pour the meat and sauce into the pan.
  10. Sautee in pan until the sauce thickens and is reduced by half.
Recipe Notes

Serve hot over steamed white rice with a side of shrimp paste. Shrimp paste can be added to the meat and sauce a little bit at a time as the food is eaten as each diner will prefer differing amounts of it, or none at all.
