    Invented in Cuba in the 1990s bistec de toronja, looks like a breaded cutlet but is made of the white spongey pith of the grapefruit. Here's how to prepare and the deets on how it tastes.

Ooo Emmy, you should make spaghetti with sugar and breadcrumbs. Also a "hard times" recipe from Romania. It's super tasty ! You just need to fry the breadcrumbs and sugar together before adding the already made spaghetti !! (For a fancier take on the recipe, add some cinnamon and finely chopped nuts).

This reminds me of Chinese Braised Pomelo Pith (燜柚子皮) where you blister the skin off the pith over a flame and then soak in water to remove the bitterness before cooking. The texture is very similar to very soft squash with a slight bitterness. I remember a lot of my relatives really enjoyed this dish at restaurants in Hong Kong.

Reading the comments in the original video, the person let the pith soak in vinegar for a couple days to help with the bitterness. Hope that helps!

I wonder if using a pomelo might be better because of the larger pith? Could make a cutlet sandwich with it

I wonder if you used a pommelo if it would be milder. Pommelos also have a super thick pith.

Pretty sure it’s bitter because you left lots of skin on still when you peeled it. There were lots of little lines of skin left between where you used the peeler. The bitterness is quite intense from grapefruit so you have to make sure allllllll of the skin is gone

There are some 1940s ration cookbooks. They have some very interesting recipes in them. I have some of the recipes that I can send to you, if you want to try them.

I wonder if some mushroom powder seasoning would help make this taste a little meatier?

Im vegetarian so i would leave the egg alone but that looks amazing. I'm not sure texture wise but worth trying. I'm surprised I've never seen this before.

Emmy, I definitely recommend you check out Great Depression Cooking on YouTube. Sadly, the woman has since died, but I think you’d enjoy her little recipes from her youth during the Great Depression.

as a child of cuban immigrants i’m always taught to appreciate the amazing food choices here. also, we eat grapefruits all the time at home 😂 mom likes to make candied grapefruit and we eat it with cheese :P yum edit: i asked my grandma about this and she said she used to soak the grapefruit in mojo. it’s basically marinade.

Try to make the famous pizzas found anywhere in Havana! There are tons of myths around them, like the "cheese" on them is actually cardboard. I think they were also invented during the Periodo Especial (the same crisis in the 90's when Bistec de toronja saw the light). Nowadays is still a very popular and cheap fast food option in Cuba. If someone have an accurate recipe on this or more info about this pizzas, let us know. I'd love to make them by myself too!

this is so interesting. My parents used to do the same with pomelo peels. The pith on those are a lot thicker. They would soak it in water.

Congratulations your choice of hard times cookery! My area is WWII hunger and I have lots of resources for just that kind of information in rationed UK and Italy of the era. Contact.me if you want to check anything out. Meantime, my friend from Appalachia talks of Flour Gravy which contains only browned flour, salt, bacon grease and milk or water and is served over biscuits.

I love grapefruit, but I can't eat it. I take Pravastatin for high cholesterol and grapefruit, even the juice, can make me deathly ill. Life sucks.
