Dining in the Next Normal: A Savory Feast at Home with Premium Sterling Silver Brand US Bone-In Beef Short Ribs from Alternatives Food Corporation

With the continued rise in fresh new cases, the metro is once again placed under Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine for another two weeks. This is how it's going to be in the new normal, and dining at home will be part of the safety protocols. As the national health system strains under full capacity, one never knows exactly how long the stricter quarantine will be enforced. But online access and ramped up food deliveries will keep family meals at home humming with a wide variety of options, including premium US meats delivered to your doorstep by Alternatives Food Corporation.

The quarantine experience forced dining at home as families stayed indoors preparing home-cooked meals or opting for the convenience of food deliveries. With online access to a wide variety of sumptuous options, families can celebrate milestones with a festive feast at home even during the quarantine. These savory options include premium US meats from Alternatives Food Corporation (AFC Phils) like this Sterling Silver Brand US Bone-In Beef Short Ribs that's perfect for the home grill...

Alternatives Food Corporation is a leading top-tier broad line food supply integrator offering world-class quality meats, poultry and seafood since 1998 bringing world-class products to your table (for more on Alternatives Food Corporation and their wide selection of premium US meats, see my previous post, Dining in the Next Normal: Alternatives Food Corporation (AFC) Brings Premium US Meats to Your Table featuring their Applewood Smoked Bacon from Niman Ranch, US Excel Brand Prime Grade Ribeye and the Swift US Boston Butt Pork Steak). Despite being isolated at home for the duration of the quarantine, we've never enjoyed such a wide and diverse array of options thanks to social media and the net. And everything can be delivered conveniently to your doorstep. For premium meats, seafood and poultry, you can rely on Alternatives Food Corporation to offer the very best... 

Recently, I sampled their Applewood Smoked Bacon by Niman Ranch, the Swift US Boston Butt Pork Steak and the US Excel Brand Prime Grade Ribeye (see my earlier post here) and thoroughly enjoyed each dish. The superior quality of premium US beef and pork becomes immediately apparent from that very first slice and bite. The tender and juicy texture of the US Excel Brand Prime Grade Ribeye and Swift US Boston Butt Pork Steak remain an experience I remember to this day, followed by its rich and savory notes. The thick slabs of Applewood Smoked Bacon also sets it apart from the local variety, with bold and robust notes and just a hint of smoke to complete the flavors. Alternatives Food Corporation offers so much more to make dining at home memorable during the quarantine...

For the whole month of August, Alternatives Food Corporation will have available a sumptuous array of savory offerings from US Wagyu Beef, US Angus Beef, Canadian Beef, US Kurobuta Pork, Iberico Pork, US Lamb and New Zealand Lamb... Chicken, Duck, Potato Fries and Seafood including plump New Zealand Greenshell Mussels, Blue Codfish, Lobster Tails, Baby Squid Calamari, Popcorn Shrimp and Alaskan Pollack Fish Fillet.

Today, it's the premium Sterling Silver Brand US Bone-In Beef Short Ribs that's prepped for the home grill. A popular option for Korean style barbecue or savory braised dishes, the US Bone-In Beef Short Ribs is so called because the cut only includes a portion of the long rib. I prefer my short ribs simple, seasoned with salt and pepper and laid on a grill. With quality beef, the simpler the better. No need to complicate a good thing.

Unlike steaks, it takes a while to grill or sear the beef short ribs. One last flip for the crossed grid marks and your beef short ribs are ready to serve.

Sides of marble potatoes, buttered green peas and French beans complete the dish. Mashed potatoes, a salad or some baked beans, pickled vegetables or kimchi also works, just take what ever is available in your quarantine pantry.

Fresh off the grill, the beef short ribs are tender and juicy delivering rich and beefy notes with every bite. The beef short ribs are best enjoyed as soon as you take it off the grill when it's at its most tender and flavorful peak.

A special meal doesn't have to be complicated, just good quality beef, a liberal drizzle of salt and pepper and a slow dance with the flames on the home grill are all you need. Alternatives Food Corporation makes it easy for you as we transition to the MECQ and the next normal. 

If you still have a few strips of short ribs left the next day, why not have a sumptuous breakfast or brunch with your own spin on a customized silog? It's a beefy variation on the usual, and the perfect start for another day at home in quarantine. 

The premium Sterling Silver Brand US Bone-In Beef Short Ribs from Alternatives Food Corporation is a welcome addition to your meat supply at home for the quarantine. A few taps on your mobile device brings it home to your table. Next up, we'll prep the US Lamb Shoulder and the Snake River Farms US Kurobuta Pork Belly for another memorable meal at home delivered fresh by Alternatives Food Corporation so stay tuned.
