GRILLED CHEESE SUPREMO
one of ann's simple eating pleasures is a grilled cheese sandwich. most of the time, i bow to the simple goodness of the dish & don't meddle too much in making them for her. sometimes i experiment w/the cheeses. i'm convinced that texas toast bread is the superior vehicle for the cheese.
this sandwich takes things in another direction: beef short ribs, long-braised(four hours) in lagunitas' cappucino stout, red onions caramelized & pickled into an onion marmalade, a soft, organic jack cheese & the delicious bite of baby arugula.
the end result looked pretty good to me. ann says it tasted pretty good too.
