Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Ribs w/ Shredded Potato Casserole

 

 

 

For Breakfast I Scrambled a couple of Eggs that I topped with Sargento Off the Block 4 State Cheddar and Ortega Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce. I also toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly cloudy and a high of 55 degrees out today. They say that coming in Monday is our first snow fall. I’ve heard predictions of 3-5 inches. But we’ll see. After Breakfast I got the cart out of the shed and covered up the air conditioner with a tarp. And in case it does snow I got the snow shovel and rock salt out of the shed and set it by the ramp. Sat back and caught up on some shows I had recorded the rest of the afternoon. For Dinner tonight its Crock Pot Ribs w/ Baked Shredded Potato Casserole.

 

Mom wanted some of my Crock Pot Ribs, her favorite, so that’s what we are having for Dinner tonight. I had purchased the Ribs from Meijer yesterday and had them in the freezer. Then Last night before I went to bed I put half racks in a Hefty Gallon Plastic Bag then seasoned it with JB’s Fat Boy All Purpose Rub and then covered it 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 and added a 1/4 cup of water. Got the Ribs out of the fridge, discarded the Hefty Bags, and put the racks in the Crock Pot where I let it cook and simmer, on low, for about 7 hours. Long up in the afternoon the aroma of the Ribs and BBQ Sauce start to fill the air!

 

After 7 hours the ribs are ready and now for the hard part of cooking them, getting them out whole without breaking them up! They’re that tender and when eating them you need no knife, the bones just slide out. These Ribs were huge, some of the biggest I’ve prepared. The Ribs are so tender, moist and just full of flavor! For 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. And as always I would like to send out a big thank you to whom ever invented the Crock Pot Liners! I always use them when using the Crock Pot. Again just flat out delicious Fall off the Bone Ribs! And the JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce and Seasoning is so good on these Pork Ribs!

 

For a side dish we tried something new I came across at Meijer yesterday, RESER’S MAIN STREET BISTRO – BAKED SHREDDED POTATO CASSEROLE. I had seen this before at Meijer and decided to give it a try, and glad I did. It comes in a tray that you can microwave or bake in the oven. As usual I’m going with the Oven Baking way.

 

 

Very easy to prepare. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Just remove the tray from the package and remove the film covering the tray. Place the tray on a baking sheet and heat in the oven for 22 minutes. And it’s ready to serve!

 

 

 

 

Seasoned with a shake of Salt and Pepper along with a sprinkle of Kraft 2% Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. This turned out delicious! Came out bubbling hot. Plenty of Potatoes and loaded with flavor! Fantastic Potato item to have in the fridge. I also baked a loaf of La Baguette Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. Perfect Bread for Gumbo. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels along with a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pork 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.

Is it a Crock Pot or Slow Cooker………………………..

A Crock Pot is a type of slow cooker; however, not every Slow Cooker is a Crock-Pot. A Crock Pot has a stoneware pot that is surrounded by a heating element, whereas a Slow Cooker is typically a metal pot that sits on top of a heated surface.

Let it sit……………….

Many soups are better on the second day because the flavors have had more time to develop. Also, meat dishes like chili, or a brisket with all that sinewy tissue, will be even better the day after it’s been made. Let it sit in the fridge until the next day, and enjoy!

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Ribs w/ Shredded Potato Casserole

 

 

I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for my Breakfast. 93 degrees, humid and mostly sunny out. After Breakfast we had to go pick Mom’s car up at the mechanic’s. She had the starter replaced in her car and it was faulty. So it was replaced for free. Afterward I took Mom’s car up and had it washed, filled it with gas, and stopped at Wendy’s and picked up Breakfast for her. Got the cart out of the shed and did a few things around the yard. I’m preparing Crock Pot Ribs today! For Dinner tonight its Crock Pot Ribs w/ Baked Shredded Potato Casserole.

 

Mom wanted some of my Crock Pot Ribs, her favorite, so that’s what we are having tonight. I had purchased the Ribs from Meijer yesterday and had them in the freezer.

When using your Crock Pot……………..

Brown the meat first. Searing the meat first will produce delicious flavors when high heat interacts with the proteins. It will also give the meat that caramelized skin and look even more delicious when you remove it from the crock pot. Sear your meats in a heavy duty pan, like a cast iron skillet.

Kitchen Hint of the Week!

Keep your lid on…………….

When using your Crock Pot resist the urge to remove the lid and peek at your meal. Opening the slow cooker lets heat and moisture escape, and it slows the cooking process. Once you put the lid on, leave it there until your dish reaches the low end of the recipe’s cooking range. In other words, if the instructions recommend cooking the recipe for six to eight hours, don’t be tempted to remove the lid until you reach hour six. When you reach that point, feel free to lift the led, test temperatures and tenderness. Put the lid back on if it needs more time, and only remove the lid every 30 to 45 to check doneness again. Constant lifting and stirring may slow your cook time and interfere with how ingredients cook.

Crock Pot Boneless Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans

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

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Well our streak of perfect weather is over. Showers and Thunderstorms through out the day and 79 degrees. This afternoon did laundry and it was house cleaning day. For Dinner tonight its Crock Pot Boneless Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes and Green Beans.

 

 

 

 

 

I had tried Boneless Ribs in quite some time. So while at Meijer the other day I noticed how beautiful they looked and they were on sale, so why not buy a package. I’m preparing them basically the same way I do my Pork Back Ribs with the bone in.

 

 

Last night before I went to bed I put the Ribs in a Hefty Gallon Plastic Bag then seasoned it JB’s Fat Boy All Purpose Rub and then covered it 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 and added a 1/2 cup of water. Got the Ribs out of the fridge, discarded the Hefty Bags, and put the racks in the Crock Pot where I let it cook and simmer, on low, for about 4 hours. In the afternoon the aroma of the Ribs and BBQ Sauce start to fill the air!

 

 

 

 

 

After 4 hours the ribs are ready! Tender, moist and just full of flavor! For us, JB’s Fat Boy Sauces and Rubs can’t be beat. The Ribs were incredible! I’ll be buying the Boneless Ribs more often! 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. And as always I would like to send out a big thank who ever invented the Crock Pot Liners! I always use them when using the Crock Pot.

 

 

 

 

 

For a side dish I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just microwave for 6 minutes and serve, just as good as homemade, if not better. Mashed Potatoes are perfect to go with Ribs!

 

 

 

 

 

 

And what’s perfect with Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans! I had also opened up a Mason Jar of our Canned Green Beans, canned last summer, and got them cooking. Love these Beans, they taste just as fresh as the day we bought them. Just heat them up in a large sauce pan and serve. Fresh Green Beans any time you want, I love it! Quite a Dinner tonight! For Dessert a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Pork 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.

Baby back ribs (also back ribs or loin ribs) are taken from the top of the rib cage between the spine and the spare ribs, below the loin muscle. They have meat between the bones and on top of the bones, and are shorter, curved, and sometimes meatier than spare ribs. The rack is shorter at one end, due to the natural tapering of a pig’s rib cage. The shortest bones are typically only about 3 in (7.6 cm) and the longest is usually about 6 in (15 cm), depending on the size of the hog. A pig side has 15 to 16 ribs (depending on the breed), but usually two or three are left on the shoulder when it is separated from the loin. So, a rack of back ribs contains a minimum of eight ribs (some may be trimmed if damaged), but can include up to 13 ribs, depending on how it has been prepared by the butcher. A typical commercial rack has 10–13 bones. If fewer than 10 bones are present, butchers call them “cheater racks”.

Serve the pulled pork with potato salad, collard greens and grits. Or make it into a sandwich and serve it on a bun with coleslaw…………

This slow-cooker chicken recipe makes a perfect alternative to standard tomato-based barbecued chicken. Both kids and adults will devour these drumsticks, doused in a honey-sweetened sauce spiked with orange, ginger and garlic………

Slow-Cooker Baked Beans
A must-have dish for any backyard barbecue, this classic baked bean recipe is made simple by simmering in a slow-cooker. Spiked with bourbon, maple syrup and molasses, these healthy baked beans have just the right amount of bacon to add a salty touch of smokiness………
