Feb 9: Shin Ramen; Smoked Short Ribs with Apple Radicchio Salad and Baked Beans


A cold start to the day made hot noodles an attractive proposition. A pack of four Shin Noodle Bowl was $3.69 or 93c per serve ($1.23 with vegetable), which proved to be quite generous and a satisfying – if spicy hot – meal. We do, however, only use one of the two flavor pouches.


We were able to procure some Short Ribs on special from Whole Foods, so we smoked them on our stovetop smoker, before cooking for an extra 90 minutes. We served with an Apple Radicchio Salad and the remaining small serve of Baked Beans.

  • The Short Ribs were $8.57 after Prime discount, or $4.29 per serve
  • The Radicchio was $3.49, but half makes four serves of the salad, or 44c per serve
  • The Apple adds 20c per serve
  • Add 40c per serve for Rub, and Dressing ingredients.

The Short Ribs came out perfectly, with a good smoke flavor and fall off the bone tender. A very good meal for $5.33 per serve.
