Boil the gizards with 1 cup of red wine, (cabernet sauvignon was used in this article) and water, enough to submerge the gizzards. A dutcht oven is recommended. for 1 hour with medium heat
Pour the gizards into a strainer, rinse the gizzards.
Pour 1 cup of chicken broth, and 2 cups of water into the empty pot or dutch oven. Add a cup of slides onion, 1 crushed garlic, 1 tablespoon of soy sauce, 1 tablespoon of siracha, 1 teaspoon of peper and 1 table spoon of brown sugar. Bring it to a boil
add the gizzards back to the pot/dutch oven. Boil the gizzards with low heat for 2 hours, until the liquid is evaporated.
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Little Saigon. This quan nhau is specialized in goat meat (thit de), but other dishes are good as well. Some of my favorite dishes are goat curry, grilled goat chops, long heo luoc, tiet canh de and lau de.
If you like Vietnamese food that go with beers, you should check this restaurant out.
Each of us may have our own top 10 list of Pho restaurants in Little Saigon. OC Weekly created a top 10 list of pho restaurants four years ago, 11/26/11. Look at the following list and let us know which restaurants you want to replace, because you may agree with some of the restaurant
Pho Thank Lich
Pho Quang Trung
Pho Da Kao
Pho Nguyen Hue
Pho Vinh Ky II
Pho Kim Loan
Pho Hien Vuong
Personally, I would replace the Pho Vink Ky II with Pho Thang Long. Also I would rank Pho Thanh Lick lower than Pho 79, Pho Nguyen Hue, and Pho 86.
I tried to google about this topic this morning and my finding is as follows:
It may not be at a large scale but it is happening
desalination projects are only one of many efforts that California takes on to free itselft from drought-depedent water sources
While tradition desalination process consumes significant energy and thus is expensive. Newer desalination methods needs much less enerny. An article on 360.yale.edu by Cheryl Katz shows Trevi Systems use a method called “energy skimping desalination”. This method use 1/4 of the energy and can be driven by solar energy. Trevis Systems is part of a Bay Area start up. A pilot plant of Trevis System is being built in United Arab Emirates “to desalinate seawater”, using solar energy.
Trevi Systems can also be used to desalinate sewage water: “can economically cleanse brackish groundwater, industrial effluent, and other forms of liquid waste”
A desalination project is being tested t in California’s agricultural Central Valley. It uses parabolic solar mirrors and captures water evaporates.
The largest desalination plant in the US will be in operation in early 2016. It will produce up to 50 millions gallon of drinkable water a day, using Isrealis technology. Santa Barbara restart its desalination plant, which passed a pilot test in the 90’s
There are other smaller projects that are in planning stages. Desalination research projects are also thriving at MIT, UC Berkeley, University of Texas and Standford. These research may result in new implementations in California in the near future.
