Just Another Manic Monday…
Yep, it is. I had a rather jam packed weekend. I went to four baseball games (my goal is to attend all WSU home baseball games this year.) and got lots of sun! Well, not the type of sun that makes us TAN, but the type that gives you lots of happy happy vitamin D. I have very fair skin, and unless I wear SPF fifty, I may as well be a potato chip.
Good news is that we also won three of four games against Utah. YAY!
Put Some Meat On Those Ribs!
Saturday night I had some AWESOME ribs. It was an easy recipe, and I think you all need to try it. I let them bake while I was at the baseball game, very convenient!
Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
In a bowl, combine all dry ingredients and mix well. Place each slab of baby back ribs on a piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil, shiny side down. Sprinkle each side generously with the dry rub. Pat the dry rub into the meat. Refrigerate the ribs for a minimum of 1 hour. In a microwavable container, combine all ingredients for the braising liquid. Microwave on high for 1 minute.
Place the ribs on a baking sheet. Open one end of the foil on each slab and pour half of the braising liquid into each foil packet. Tilt the baking sheet in order to equally distribute the braising liquid. Braise the ribs in the oven for 2 1/2 hours.
Transfer the braising liquid into a medium saucepot. Bring the liquid to a simmer and reduce by half or until of a thick syrup consistency. Brush the glaze onto the ribs. Place under the broiler just until the glaze caramelizes lightly. Slice each slab into 2 rib bone portions. Place the remaining hot glaze into a bowl and toss the rib portions in the glaze.
And Finally, a Poem To Get Ya Going this Fine Monday!
