Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Potatoes Au Gratin and Green Beans

 

 

Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs 005
Very cold and windy out today, our streak of good weather is over! Even colder as the week goes on, near 0 by Sunday morning. Today is my Mom’s Birthday! So this morning I made her and Dad French Toast, Sausage Links, and diced up a little Fruit for them. Then for Dinner I told Mom to pick out her favorite Dinner and she chose Crock Pot Ribs. Tonight I prepared Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Potatoes Au Gratin and Green Beans.

 
Mom had been wanting some Ribs so what better day to have them than on her Birthday! So I picCrock Pot Pork Back Ribs 002ked up a package at Kroger yesterday, they always have top quality Pork. Last night before I went to bed I cut the Ribs in half, so they’ll fit in the Crock Pot, and put each half in a Hefty Gallon Plastic Bag then seasoned them with Sea salt and Black Pepper and then covered the Ribs in JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce to marinate all night in the fridge. Then this morning I got out the Crock Pot, lined it with a Reynold’s Crock Pot Plastic Liner, and sprayed that with Pam Non-Stick Spray. Got the Ribs out of the fridge, discarded the Hefty Bags, and put them in the Crock Pot where I let them cook and simmer, on low, for about 8 hours. Long up in the afternoon you can start smelling the aroma of the Ribs, intoxicating! After 8 hours their ready and now for the hard part of cooking them, getting them out whole without breaking them up! Their that tender, when eating them you need no knife, the bones just slide out. Tender, moist and just full of flavor! For all of us JB’s Fat Boy Sauces and Rubs can’t be beat. The Ribs were incredible! Plus I love using that Crock Pot, no mess and with the plastic liner in the Crock Pot no clean-up. Just wipe it down and store it for the next time.

 

 

Idahoan Au Graten Potatoes 002
For side dishes my Mom prepared some more of the canned fresh Green Beans, or a Mess of Beans as she says, she had purchased from out in Ross at Farmer’s Stand and canned during the Summer. Then I prepared some Idahoan Au Gratin Homestyle Casserole. I left the Idahoan Product info and instructions at the end of the post. For dessert a Healthy Choice Vanilla Bean Frozen Greek Yogurt. Happy Birthday Mom, love you!
