Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w Potatoes Au Gratin and Cut Italian Gr 006
Had a light Breakfast to start the day. I had a toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. Along with the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After Breakfast I ran Mom to Kroger and on the way home had to stop by the bank and update our credit cards and change the passwords. Back home gave Mom a hand with a couple of loads of laundry. Then did some cleaning of the house. This morning I put our dinner in the Crock Pot. Tonight it’s Mom’s favorite Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Potatoes Au Gratin and Cut Italian Green Beans.

 

 

Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs Seasoning

 

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. 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. I would like to thank who ever invented the Crock Pot Liners! I always use them when using the Crock Pot.

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.

Then I opened up a Mason Jar of our Canned Green Beans, canned in the Summer of 2013. Love these Beans, they taste just as fresh as the day we bought them. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury Rustic French Bread, Mom’s favorite. For dessert later tonight a Healthy Choice Frozen Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

It’s been one of those long days around here today. This morning after I got the Ribs cooking in the Crock Pot we were going to take my Dad to the doctor, with flu-like symptoms. But he got dizzy and almost fell so we called 911 and let them take him on to the hospital. They did release him after about 4 hours, still waiting on results of the tests. Hopefully good news! For dinner tonight, Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Potatoes Au Gratin and Green Beans.

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.

From Jill O’Brien of Wild Idea Buffalo, Everything I know About Cooking Buffalo Ribs. Some great info and tips on Buffalo Ribs, Enjoy!

 
Everything I know About Cooking Buffalo Ribs
By: Jill O’Brien

 

Wild Idea Buffalo Ribs
Ribs are enjoyed year around, but with the grilling season in full swing, I have received a few good questions recently on the preparation of them. Hopefully it will clarify some of your questions too.

The first lesson is: 100% Grass-Fed Bison Ribs are not like corn finished bison or beef ribs. If you are following a recipe that is formulated using pork or corn fed meat and are using Wild Idea Buffalo 100% Grass-Fed Ribs, and it doesn’t turn out, this could be why. When you find a recipe that sounds good to you, it doesn’t mean that you have to abandon the idea of the recipe. Use the seasonings, liquids or sauces, but for best results, follow one of the techniques listed below.

Before we get to techniques, here are a few other options you have in preparing ribs.

*Removing membrane from the backside of ribs: I do this only occasionally, if I’m preparing for a fancier affair, otherwise I leave the membrane intact. It will become soft during cooking process and is easy to remove after cooking or while eating. If you choose to remove the membrane, slide a knife between membrane and meat, preferably at a corner, until you can easily grab a hold of the membrane with your fingers. Drop your knife and use one hand as resistance on ribs and the other to pull the membrane away from the meat.

*Trimming: Some people choose to trim the ribs of exterior fat. I do not, unless there is an excessive layer of fat on the ribs. During the cooking process the fat will become very gelatinous and buttery, which my family likes. This however is a personal preference.

*Scoring ribs: I score the ribs if I am marinating, to tenderize or to get more of the marinade flavor or rub into the meat. Score buffalo ribs by making about ½ inch deep and 1 inch long cuts in the meat or fat.

*Marinating: If you are using a marinade to tenderize and not just flavor the buffalo ribs, my recommendation is pineapple juice, or better yet pureed pineapple. The enzymes in pineapple will assist in breaking down the connective tissue. For ribs you can marinade in pineapple for up to 24 hours, but watch marinating time on other cuts of meat, as pineapple can turn a roast or steak into mushy meat. If you are interested in marinating you might want to try my recipe for Wild Idea Buffalo Jerk Ribs, located here, http://wildideabuffalo.com/2014/grilled-jerk-buffalo-ribs/.

Wild Idea Buffalo Ribs 2

The following techniques, for the listed Wild Idea Buffalo rib cuts, I have found to be very successful.

*For Un-Cut Short Plate and Short Ribs:

*Braising Technique: Cook ribs in liquid in a heavy roaster, Dutch oven or Crock Pot, covered with lid or heavy foil. Braising achieves tenderness, and keeps meat moist and juicy. If braising is done in oven, set oven temperature to 375° and braise for 3.5 to 4 hours, for fall of the bone tender ribs. Use less time if you want buffalo ribs a little chewy. Lower temperatures can be used, but time will need to be increased, which works well for Crock Pots or lower oven settings of around 190°. Adjust time and temperature based on poundage of product. Also know your slow cooker, as each preform a little differently. I have braised ribs in a slow cooker for 6 to 8 hours depending on setting and poundage. Product is ready when you can easily pull meat apart with two forks. Continue braising until this is achieved. Additional liquids may be needed. After braising is complete, you can finish on the grill and baste with sauce. Preheat grill to 400°, and place foil over grill grates. Place ribs on top of foil and make slits with I knife in the foil. Baste with your favorite sauce, keep grill lid closed during cooking time and turn every couple of minutes. Grill for about 6 minutes, or until desired charred stickiness is accomplished.

*Foil Wrap Steaming over Indirect Grilling: Place bison ribs on top of 2 sheets of heavy foil. Add a quarter to a half-cup of liquid, and seal edges tightly. Place foil wrapped ribs in 500° preheated grill, close grill lid and cook for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 375° – 400°, and move foil wrapped ribs to an indirect heat area of the grill.

Cook ribs for 3.5 to 4 hours, or until ribs are to your desired tenderness. About 4 hours for fall of the bone tender ribs. Remove from grill and drain juices from foil. (Pan juices are great to add to a sauce). Increase grill heat to 450°, open foil and move ribs over direct heat. Baste with your favorite sauce, closing grill lid during cooking time, turning every two minutes until desired charred stickiness is accomplished.

*Buffalo Back Ribs: Braising or Foil Steam is optional, but not necessary. My preference is grilling. Ribs will have a little chew to them, but my guys prefer their Back Ribs this way. If you choose to braise or foil steam, decrease your time to 1/3 of above suggested.

*Grilling: For a more tender result, marinate first. Preheat grill to 400°, and place foil over grill grates. Place ribs on top of foil and make slits with I knife in the foil. Turn ribs every 3 minutes, keeping grill lid closed during cooking. Do this for about 6 minutes total. After initial cooking you can start basting ribs with your sauce, again keeping grill lid closed during cooking time, and turning every couple of minutes until desired charred stickiness is accomplished.

Here is another more traditional recipe that will produce a successful outcome. http://wildideabuffalo.com/2012/buffalo-short-ribs-un-cut-short-plate/

I do hope you find these tips and recipes helpful. If you have a technique or recipe that you have found to be successful, I would love to hear from you. Cheers! Jill.

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Mini Ears of Sweet Corn, and 3 Bean Salad

 

 

 

Crock Pot Ribs 002

 

The temps weren’t too bad this morning when I ventured out to fetch the paper, above zero at least and little to no wind. But as the day went on it gradually got colder and it’s supposed to keep dropping, minus 10 by Tuesday morning! Everyone wanted Ribs for dinner so I cut the rack of ribs up and let them marinate overnight in the fridge. Dinner tonight, I prepared Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Mini Ears of Sweet Corn, and 3 Bean Salad.

 

 

 

Crock Pot Ribs 001

Ready for the Crock Pot

I purchased the Ribs from Kroger the other day. 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, 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 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 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.

 

 

 
For one side I heated up some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes, just microwave for a total of 6 minutes and their ready. Then I boiled some Green Giant Mini Ears of Sweet Corn. A great replacement, and sometimes better, for fresh Corn on the Cob. Then I opened up a can of Read 3 Bean Salad. A delicious Sunday Dinner! For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.

 

 

 

 
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.

For one side dish I prepared Idahoan Premium Parmesan and Herb Red Potatoes. As all the Idahoan Potato Products the Parmesan and Herb Red Potatoes are easy to fix and a delicious Potato Dish. The box contains the Potatoes, Sauce, and Topping. I added 2 Tbsp. of Butter, 1/2 cup 2% Milk, and Water. Just mix all the ingredients, pre-heat the oven to 450 degrees, and bake uncovered for about 25 minutes. Let it set for 5 minutes before serving, that lets the Sauce thicken up. I also heated up some Del Monte Cut Green Beans and I baked a loaf of Pillsbury Simply French Bread for Mom and Dad, I passed on the Bread to save on the carbs and calories. One fine meal that everyone enjoyed! For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.
