Today’s Menu: Crock Pot BBQ Baby Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Whole Grain Bread

 

 

My Mom requested Ribs so Ribs it was, Crock Pot Ribs for dinner! We purchased some Pork Baby Back Ribs from a local Kroger and used J B‘s Fat Boy Haugwaush Barbecue Sauce on the ribs. Last night I cut the Ribs in half so they would fit the Crock Pot and then used a half bottle of the JB’s Fat Boy Haugwaush Bar B Cue Sauce, rubbing it by hand on to the Ribs. I put the Ribs in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag and let them marinate over night. The next morning put the Ribs in the Crock Pot and cooked them on low for 8 hours. After 5 hours I applied the other half a bottle of Haugwaush to the Ribs. The ribs came out perfect! Tender fall off the bone delicious. No knife needed as the bones could be removed by just pulling on them. The hardest part of this is getting the Ribs out of the Crock Pot without them falling apart. At the end of the post I left the J B’s Sauce description and web site link.

For sides we had Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Whole Grain Bread. For dessert I grabbed a mini loaf of Pillsbury Nut Quick Bread out of the freezer and let it thaw. Then had a slice of Nut Bread topped with a scoop of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream.

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Falling Off the Bone Ribs w/ Potato Pancakes, Sugar Snap Peas, and Whole Grain Bread

 

 

 

My Mom purchased some Ribs yesterday so it was decided yesterday what was for dinner tonight! Just not Rib but Crock Pot BBQ Baby Back Ribs! I used Kroger Pork Baby Back Ribs. While I had the crock pot warming up I cut the rack of Ribs in half, to fit in the crock pot, and seasoned the Ribs with JB’s Fat Boy Premium Rub and I then brushed on a half a bottle of JB’s Fat Boy Haugwaush Bar B Cue Sauce. I cooked the ribs for 8 hours on low in the crock pot. After 5 hours I applied the other half of Haugwaush to the Ribs. The ribs came out tender fall off the bone delicious. No knife needed as the bones could be removed by just pulling on them. The aroma of the Ribs were throughout the house. My rub and sauce are both J B’s Fat Boy products.If your looking for an easy and delicious Rib recipe look no further!

For sides I prepared Sugar Snap Peas,Idahoan Scalloped Homestyle Casserole, for Mom and Dad, and I baked the other half of the Walmart Bakery Marketside Everything Italian Loaf Bread. The Sugar Snap Peas were left over from a previous meal. The Idahoan Scalloped Potatoes are an easy and quick way to have a delicious Scalloped Potatoes. I’ve left the item description along with instructions at the end of the post. Instead of the Scalloped Potatoes I had Potato Pancakes that were leftover from last night’s dinner. For dessert/snack later a 100 calorie mini bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn.

 

Idahoan Scalloped Potatoes

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot BBQ Baby Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Whole Grain Brea
While relaxing and watching TV and working a crossword last night my Mom came in from the grocery and brought me a bag and said “Fix these for dinner tomorrow”. So as I always say what Mom wants Mom gets! So Ribs it was for dinner Wednesday! Last night before I went to bed I cut the rack of Ribs in half and put them in a Hefty Zip Bag along with about a half a bottle of JB’s Fat Boy Haugwaush Bar B Cue Sauce. I love using JB’s Sauce for any meat, it’s by far my favorite! This morning I already had the Ribs and the Crock Pot ready. So after a light breakfast I had the Ribs in the Crock Pot by 8:00 a.m. cooking on low. By lunch the aroma of the Ribs were all through the kitchen and dining room. My parents wanted to eat early to make a Church function this evening. The Ribs were ready and falling off the bone by a little after 4 p.m. I was tempted to eat then also but I waited to later. The Ribs as usual were incredible! Using the Crock Pot for the Ribs produces the most tender and moist Ribs you’ll ever have. Include the JB’s Fat Boy Haugwaush Bar B Cue Sauce and you have the tastiest also! The only problem, getting them out of the Crock Pot without them falling apart!

 

For sides we had Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes, Shellie Beans, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. I baked a loaf of Pillsbury Rustic french Bread for my parents. For dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream topped with Del Monte No Sugar Added Sliced Peaches.

Today’s Menu: Chinese Country-Style Pork Ribs w/ Diced New Potatoes, Buttered Corn, and Whole Grain Bread

Tried a new recipe for dinner tonight, Chinese Country-Style Pork Ribs. I saw the recipe in an issue of Taste of Home and it sounded delicious! I’ll leave the original recipe and Taste of Home recipe link at the end of the post. I made one addition and changed one thing from the original recipe. I also added 2 teaspoons of Chinese 5 Spice to the seasoning and I baked the ribs instead of putting them in the microwave before grilling them. I purchased the ribs from our local Kroger. I seasoned the ribs with Sea Salt, Onion Powder, and Chinese 5 Spice and I then baked the ribs for 40 minutes at 400 degrees, turning once. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, I combined 1/2 cup chili sauce, 1/4 cup hoisin sauce, 2 tablespoons honey, and 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper bringing it to a boil. Reduced the heat and simmered uncovered, for 5-8 minutes until it was slightly thickened, stirring occasionally.

Moisten a paper towel with Pam Grill Spray; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack. Grilled the ribs,  covered, over

Hot off the grill!

medium heat for 4-5 minutes on each side, basting with sauce and turning occasionally. These came out fantastic! Tender and just bursting with flavor! Excellent recipe and the sauce is incredible.

For sides we had Margaret Holmes Buttered Corn, Boiled Diced New Potatoes, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. For dessert later a Smart One’s Fudge Brownie Chocolate Sundae.

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot BBQ Baby Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Roasted Asparagus, and Whole Grain Bread

What better for a Sunday Dinner than “No Knife Needed” Crock Pot Baby Back Ribs! I had purchased some Pork Loin Back Ribs at Meijer earlier this week and was looking forward  to having them today. I seasoned the Ribs with JB’s Fat Boy Premium Rub and then brushed a half a bottle of JB’s Fat Boy Haugwaush Bar B Cue Sauce. I cooked the ribs for 8 hours on low in the crock pot. After 5 hours I applied the other half of Haugwaush to the Ribs.  The ribs came out perfect! Tender fall off the bone delicious. No knife needed as the bones could be removed by just pulling on them.

For sides we had some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes, fresh Roasted Asparagus, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. Love those Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes, their hard to beat for convience and taste. I roasted the Asparagus at 450 degrees for about 10 minutes. I seasoned them with Sea Salt, Ground Black Pepper, and topped them with Kraft Shredded Parmesan Cheese. I also had Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. For dessert/snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Jolly Time Pop Corn.
