Nothing beats the comfort of having a home-cooked meal. And if there’s someone who knows a thing or two about preparing delectable dishes for the family, it’s social media star Ninong Ry. He brings his special recipes to life with the help of GLife, sourcing the best ingredients and kitchen gadgets to ensure his dishes are always outstanding.
Whether he’s looking for the freshest vegetables and meats or he’s on the hunt for new equipment to level up his kitchen, Ninong Ry finds it all on GLife. From everyone’s favorite ninong-chef, here are some tips and a recipe to up your culinary A-game.
Tip 1: Great food needs great cookware, and when cooking steak at home, have a sturdy cast iron pan.
A nice, tender steak doesn’t require a trip to a fine dining restaurant; all you need is a cast iron skillet at home to cook a perfectly delicious and juicy steak. A cast iron pan evenly distributes and retains heat, so when you cook steak, the entire surface takes on a beautifully caramelised sear.
“Lahat ng gusto mong i-sear, mase-sear mo ng maayos dito kumpara sa ibang material,” explains Ninong Ry. “Mas mataas ang searing, mas masarap ang luto, mas mag e-enjoy ang pamilya.”
A nice cast iron pan may be purchased for P630 from Rampage City on GLife.
Tip 2: Make the smart choice with sandwiches by grilling them.
“Madalas ginagamit ko ang waffle iron ko pag sawa na akong mag pancake. Same mixture, babawasan lang ng liquid, pwedeng pwede nang maging waffle. Ginagawa ko din minsan na sandwich bread yung mga waffle na gawa ko para maiba naman,” shares Ninong Ry.
With a waffle iron, the outside part of your sandwich becomes crispy, but the centre remains soft and gooey, especially when you add lots of cheese! Ninong Ry recommends the Sonifer SF-6043, a portable waffle iron that costs only P674.00 on GLife.
Tip 3: Get the finest sirloin or salpicao cuts and homemade steak sauce from Chingolo Deli.
Chingolo Deli is Ninong Ry’s go-to deli for meats since they’re sourced from grass-fed herds. Their meats are hormone and antibiotic free, so they’re not only delicious, but also healthier for you and your family.
The Bolzico meat at Chingo Deli is 100-percent Argentinian certified grass-fed Angus beef, but they also have a large selection of meats from which you can prepare a superb sirloin dish or beef salpicao dinner. They also sell homemade steak sauce to-go with their prime steak cuts.
Tip 4: Make the smart choice for more savings when shopping; choose PureGo for the freshest and most affordable grocery finds.
With thousands of products from hundreds of recognized and trustworthy brands, PureGo makes online grocery shopping simple. “PureGo is incredibly convenient,” Ninong Ry promises.
“Kumpleto sila sa grocery goods, kaya di na naming kailangang lumabas, and sure na sariwa ang mga karne at gulay nila, kaya tiwala ako na maganda.”
