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

 
For Breakfast on this Sunday Morning I toasted a Healthy Life English Muffin and topped it Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w Potatoes Au Gratin and Cut Italian Gr 006with a Poached Egg. Also had that every morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Our rain yesterday fizzled out, a lot of rolling thunder with a couple of brief down pours. All that it did was make the humidity higher! Today we got dumped on though. It poured on and off all day. We do need the rain though. Still very humid out again. I did manage to go to Kroger in between showers and pick up a few items for tomorrows Dinner. Not much else going on today but sitting back and watching the storms pass by! For Dinner tonight Mom’s Favorite, Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Potatoes Au Gratin and Cut Italian Green Beans.

 

 

Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs Seasoning
Yesterday Mom made the comment “You know what sounds good?” So when she says that I know It’s time to make my Crock Pot Ribs. Mom’s favorite meal is my Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs and she’s been wanting some Ribs. So “what Mom wants Mom gets”. So Ribs it is for dinner tonight. She 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. I would like to thank who ever invented the Crock Pot Liners! I always use them when using the Crock Pot.

 

 

Idahoan Au Graten Potatoes 002
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 of Allens Cut Italian Green Beans. For dessert/snack later I had a ball of fresh Mozzarella that I sliced thin and served on Ritz Whole Grain Crackers.

BBQ Country Style Ribs w Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Baked 007
After Breakfast I went to McDonald’s to pick up Mom and Dad’s Breakfast. As I was leaving McDonald’s I was coming to a red light and started slowing down and my brake line busted. I wasn’t going very fast so it was easy to stop, and I was close to home. Called a tow truck when I got home and had it towed to the mechanic I always use. My car has 148,000 miles on it and I’m replacing a few things on now and then but still cheaper than a car payment. Just hope my run of car problems don’t continue! Anyway for dinner tonight it’s all comfort food! I prepared BBQ Country Style Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Baked French Bread.

 

BBQ Country Style Ribs w Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Baked 001
While in Kroger yesterday I noticed they had Country Style Pork Ribs on sale so I picked a package up. So tonight I’m preparing BBQ Country Style Ribs. A simple and easy recipe to prepare. I’ll need: 1 package Country Style Pork Ribs, Minced Garlic, Sea Salt, JB”s Fat Boy HaugWaush BBQ Sauce, and JB’s Fat Boy Premium All Purpose Rub.

 

 

 

BBQ Country Style Ribs w Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Baked 004
Then to prepare them I preheated the oven to 250 degrees F. In a shallow baking pan I placed the ribs in a single layer; salted and applied the Rub. Spread the garlic on the ribs. Bake in a preheated oven for 2 hours – the ribs should be tender. Drained the grease and liquid. Poured the BBQ sauce over the ribs. Returned to oven and bake one more hour at 200 to 250 degrees F. And let’s eat! Fantastic BBQ flavor and the ribs were so moist and tender! We have a good “Keeper Recipe” for Country Style Ribs!

 
For one side I heated up some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve. Just as good as homemade, if not better.

Buffalo Short Rib Sandwich Steak Fries 005

We ended up with 5″ or 6″ of snow, 10″-12″ just south of us. They’re calling for another 1″ overnight plus the bitter cold Artic blast comes in with it. They said it will struggle to hit 5 degrees for at least a couple of days. Finished up some laundry early this morning after Breakfast. Then I took Mom to Kroger to pick up a few items we needed. The main roads were all clear, just snow on the side roads. For dinner tonight I used the leftover Buffalo Short Ribs from last night’s dinner. I prepared BBQ Buffalo Short Rib Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

Yesterday’s Buffalo Wine Braised Short Ribs makes today’s BBQ Buffalo Short Rib Sandwich. I used the leftovers and reheated it in a small sauce pan on medium heat. Served it on an Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole grain Bun. Topped it with JB’s Fat Boy Chipotle BBQ Sauce. JB’s BBQ Sauces are the best I’ve ever found. They have several different kinds and all are incredible! To go with Sandwich I baked some Ore Ida Steak Fries.

JB’s Fat Boy All Natural BBQJB's Fat Boy BBQ Sauce

JB’s Fat Boy is a line of products created to enhance every meal and barbequing experience. From our variety of barbecue sauces and rub you will find an excellence of product that is hard to surpass in today’s market.
While traveling the country in barbeque competition, we learned about the benefits of adding seasoning to any meat. Doing so not only adds flavor, but also seals in the precious juices that keep the meat moist. After much experimentation we developed a line of seven rubs that have what we believe to be the perfect combination of ingredients to complement the flavor of any meat they are used on. Beyond meat, these rubs make a great addition to casseroles and everyday family recipes. When added to sour cream they also make a delightful dip.
Our line of sauces are distinctly different from those of our competitors. We use very little water in production, which results in a sauce that is thicker in texture and more fully flavored. When applied to a meat product and heated briefly this thicker sauce caramelizes on top of the meat. This keeps our distinctive sauce on top of the meat, which is where we believe it belongs.
Our goal is to make every meal distinctively memorable and we hope our products can help you achieve that. Be sure to try each and every one of them, and see for yourself.
Chipotle SauceJB's Chipotle Sauce
Kick a little heat into the everyday meal by adding some chipotle sauce to any meat product. Serve directly as a condiment or coat on grilled meats during the last few minutes of cooking. Sauce will caramelize on meat when heated through.
Warning: Consumer should keep food area open and available, as frequent use of this sauce may result in unanticipated charging back to the table for more.
Shake well before using. Refrigerate after opening. Made in the USA.
Ingredients: Red ripe tomatoes, brown sugar, mustard, natural smoke flavor, filtered water, vinegar, honey, chipotle, kosher salt, onion, garlic, natural flavor, turmeric, tamarind and spices.

Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwiches 009

 

It started off a cold morning, about 12 degrees, and didn’t get a whole lot better through out the day! Ran Mom to a couple of errands and back home for the day with my remote and College Football for the afternoon. For dinner tonight it was the Crock Pot to the rescue, I prepared Pulled Pork Sandwiches with JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce and Fried Gourmet Golden Potatoes.

 

 
They say Chicken Soup is Good For The Soul, I say Pulled Pork Sandwiches with JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce ain’t too bad for the Soul either! Which happens to be what I prepared tonight for dinner. To start I prepared a rub and needed the following; 3 tablespoons Splenda Brown Sugar, 1 tablespoon Ground Coriander, 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder, 1 teaspoon Chili Powder, 3/4 teaspoon Morton’s Salt Substitute. Then I also used 1 Boneless Pork Shoulder (Boston Butt), trimmed and cut into 2 pieces, Healthy Life Whole Grain Hamburger Buns, and 1 Bottle JB’s Fat Boy Haugwaush BBQ Sauce.

 

 

Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwiches 002

To prepare it, last night, I cut the Pork Shoulder in half. I then combined the first 5 ingredients in a small bowl and rubbed the pork with sugar mixture. I put both halves in a Gallon Size Hefty Plastic Bag along with a 1/2 bottle of BBQ Sauce and sealed it and let it marinate in the fridge overnight. In the morning I got the Crock Pot out and lined it with a Plastic Crock Pot Liner and sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray. I removed the Pork from the bag and added both halves to the Crock Pot. Added the remaining 1/2 bottle of BBQ Sauce and put the lid on and let that baby cook! Cooked on low for about 8 hours until it was so tender it started to fall apart. Skimmed the fat from surface of cooking liquid. Removed pork from cooker. Stirred in another 1/4 Bottle of BBQ Sauce. Shred the pork; and returned it to BBQ mixture. Then when it was time to eat I pulled out what we needed for Sandwiches, served it on Healthy Life Whole Grain Buns.

 

Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwiches 003

The Pork was just incredible, tender and moist! A Crock Pot, Pork Shoulder, and JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce is one winning recipe. And I hope whoever invented the Crock Pot Liners was well paid, one of the best add on Kitchen Aids I use. Virtually no cleanup involved. Just pull the liner out of your Crock Pot and throw it in the trash and wipe down the inside of your Crock Pot and cleanup is done! Mom and Dad wanted a side dish so I had some Gourmet Golden Potatoes that I sliced up. Seasoned them with Sea Salt, Ground Pepper, Garlic Powder, and Dried Parsley. I then pan fried them in a Cast Iron Skillet in Extra Virgin Olive Oil until both sides were golden brown. Served with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Mousse.

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Baked Potato and Green Beans

 

 

Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs 006
It’s been a very laid back Sunday around the house. Woke up starving this morning so I made a Breakfast Sandwich along with a cup of hot brewed Decaf Green Tea. Used a toasted Healthy Choice Multi-Grain English Muffin along with a fried slice of Turkey Spam, a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Sharp Cheddar Cheese, and a (medium size) Scrambled Egg. A delicious way to start the day! Later got in an on-line Scrabble Tournament and that was about it for the afternoon. Yesterday Mom had stopped at the store and brought home some Pork Back Ribs si I knew what I would be preparing for dinner, Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Baked Potato and Green Beans.

 

 

 

Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs 002
Mom had purchased the Ribs from Kroger. They always have some of the best top quality Pork, too bad their Beef isn’t as good! 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 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 out, 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 and the bags, discarded the Hefty Bags, and put the Ribs 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 here, JB’s Fat Boy Sauces and Rubs can’t be beat. These Ribs are 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.

 

 

Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs 001
For one side I had the other half of the baked Potato from last night. I made Mom and Dad some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Then I cooked up some fresh Green Beans, we purchased these at a farm out in Ross, Ohio. Then I baked a loaf of Pillsbury Rustic French Bread, I passed on the bread. For dessert later a slice of Mom’s Apple pie, it’s made with Splenda Sugar!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pork Ribspork-back-ribs

 

Pork ribs are a cut of pork popular in North American and Asian cuisines. The ribcage of a domestic pig, meat and bones together, is cut into usable pieces, prepared by smoking, grilling, or baking – usually with a sauce, often barbecue – and then served.
Several different types of ribs are available, depending on the section of rib cage from which they are cut. Variation in the thickness of the meat and bone, as well as levels of fat in each cut, can alter the flavor and texture of the prepared dish. The inner surface of the rib cage is covered by a layer of connective tissue (pleura) that is difficult to cook tender; it is usually removed before marinating or cooking.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Pork Chops w/ Roasted Asparagus and Roasted Herb Potatoes

 

 

Grilled Chops, Red Potatoes 004

Wow what a gorgeous day to start off the early Memorial Day Weekend! Sunny, not a cloud in the sky, and a high of 70 degrees. A perfect day! Went to Kroger for a few items for myself and my Mom and back home. Did a little price comparison update between Kroger and Walmart, more on the results later. Took the cart out for a while and went down to the lake. For dinner tonight it was Grilled Pork Chops w/ Roasted Asparagus and Roasted Herb Potatoes.

 

 

 

Grilled Chops, Red Potatoes 001
Fired the grill up for part of the meal. I had bought a package of Kroger Center Cut Pork Chops while at Kroger earlier, beautiful looking Chops! I seasoned the Chops with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn, after seasoning I sprayed a light coat of Pam Cooking Spray on both sides of the Chops. I always do this when grilling to help the Meat not to stick on the grill grate. I grilled the Chops till a thermometer read 150 degrees, grilled about 4 1/2 minutes per side. I flipped them one time and after flipping them I brushed on some JB’s Haug Waush BBQ Sauce on them. JB’s is my favorite BBQ Sauce, it’s a flavorful and a nice thick sauce with several different kinds. The Chops came out moist and full of flavor!

 

 

 

Roasted Red Potatoes
Then for sides it was 2 of my favorites, Fresh Roasted Asparagus and Roasted Herb Red Potatoes. For the Red Potatoes, preheat oven to 400 degrees, I needed 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 tablespoon minced fresh or Dried Rosemary, 1 tablespoon Dried Thyme, Rubbed Sage, and 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt, and 1/4 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper. I start by heating up a Cast Iron Skillet on medium heat and as that’s heating up quartered the Red Potatoes. Combined all ingredients in a large bowl and added the Potatoes. Toss to coat Potatoes and add them to the Skillet. Fry them about 4-5 minutes and transfer the Skillet to the preheated oven. That’s why I love using Cast Iron Skillets, from the stove to the oven. I skillet and easy clean up! Bake them for 20 minutes or until their fork tender.

 

 

 
With your oven already at 400 degrees you can make the Roasted Asparagus also. To prepare the Asparagus I just needed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Cloves Garlic (minced), Sea Salt, Freshly grated Black Pepper, Lemon Juice, and Shredded Parmesan Cheese. Rinse clean the asparagus. Break the tough ends off of the asparagus and discard. Lay the asparagus spears out in a single layer in a baking dish or a foil-covered roasting pan. Drizzle olive oil over the spears, roll the asparagus back and forth until they are all covered with a thin layer of olive oil. (Alternatively you can put the asparagus and oil in a plastic bag, and rub the bag so that the oil gets evenly distributed.) Sprinkle with minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Rub over the asparagus so that they are evenly seasoned. Place pan in oven and cook for approximately 8-10 minutes, depending on how thick your asparagus spears are, until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Drizzle with a little fresh lemon juice and shredded Parm Cheese before serving. Chops, Red Potatoes, and Asparagus, What is not to like! For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

Today’s Menu: BBQ Pulled Chicken Breast Pita Bread Pizza

 

BBQ Chicken Pita Pizzas 010

 
Went to the store and bank early, before the rain moved in. Then it was a day of cleaning. We have a walk-in closet that was packed full of basically junk. So that took up all afternoon. 1 more junk closet to go. For dinner tonight, BBQ Pulled Chicken Breast Pita Bread Pizza.

 

 

 

 

BBQ Chicken Pita Pizzas 005

Just add the Cheese and ready for the oven!

Pizza, Pizza, tonight for dinner! I used the leftover PERDUE OVEN READY Whole Seasoned Roaster Bone-In Breast, from dinner 2 nights ago. We had quite a bit of it leftover so we’ll get a couple of Pizzas and Chicken Sandwiches out of it. I pulled the Breast Meat apart and took enough to make 2 small Pita Bread Pizzas out of it. Covered it in a bowl and reheated it in the microwave. I used a Joseph’s Oat Bran and Stone Ground Whole Wheat Pita Bread for my Pizza Bread. I love using Joseph’s pita Breads, always fresh and they’re only 60 calories, 1.5 grams fat, and 5 net carbs! Then along with the Pulled Chicken for toppings I used; Sliced Green and Black Olives, Sargento Reduced Fat Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, Sliced Mushrooms, and instead of normal Pizza Sauce I used JB’s Sticky Stuff BBQ Sauce. If you’ve never had this Sauce you have to give it a try! For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding

 

 

 

 

BBQ Chicken Pita Pizzas 008
I preheated the oven on 400 degrees. To bake the Pizza I used a large Cookie Sheet. To prepare them I brushed them with a light coat of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, the coating of Oil browns it up just right. I then baked it for 5 minutes, just to brown it up a bit. Removed them from the oven and made my Pizzas. I put a layer of the Sticky Stuff BBQ Sauce, added the Chicken, the Olives, Mushrooms, and topped it with Shredded Mozzarella Cheese. It took less than 10 minutes in the oven until everything heated up and the Cheese melted.Pizza is served! The Pita Bread makes one fine Pizza, along with the Chicken and JB’s Sticky Stuff BBQ Sauce. Delicious! For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.
