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

 

Crock Pot Ribs 009
Went out early this morning to get the morning paper and a large Doe Deer was coming across the street and going on into woods behind us, beautiful site to start the day! Had a Simple Truth Breakfast Sandwich to start the day, really enjoy these. It wasn’t humid out until the sun finally broke through the clouds and the humidity shot up. A lot of rain again overnight, now we are getting too much rain. There was an article in the paper talking about with all the rain its hampering Yard Care Businesses and local Farms. Usually we don’t seem to get enough rain but not this year. For dinner tonight Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Potatoes Au Gratin and Green Beans.

Mom had been wanting some Ribs so what my Mom wants my Mom gets! So I picked up a package at Kroger yesterday, they always have top quality Pork. And these were some Pork Back Ribs, 4 1/2 lbs. worth! 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 little to no clean-up. Just wipe it down and store it for the next time.

For side dishes I prepared some Idahoan Au Gratin Homestyle Casserole. I left the Idahoan Product info and instructions at the end of the post. Then I heated up a can Del Monte Cut Green Beans. For dessert a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.
