Asian Fusion Instant Pot Short Ribs

I have an irrational fear of unfamiliar cuts of meat. Yet there they were: the short ribs, lying in a brick of frost, daring me to grab them and attempt something. When in doubt, I always turn to big, bold flavors. The sauce is kinda like Asian BBQ — thus, “Asian Fusion”. Whatever it is, you can’t go wrong!

Trout, Bacon, & Corn Chowder

When our son was invited to go trout fishing on the last day of the season and caught some, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them. With the sweetness of corn and the smokiness of bacon, this trout chowder is nourishing, hearty, and not fishy AT ALL!
