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

Rain and more rain has started here, for the next 5 days! Started the morning off with some Turkey Goetta, 1 Egg Sunnyside Up, and some lightly buttered Whole Wheat Toast. Then for lunch a Salmon Burger on a Whole grain Bun and for diner Ribs! My Mom purchased the Ribs yesterday at Kroger. She said it had been quite a while since I made any for her so as I always say, “What Mom wants Mom gets!” So I prepared Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Potatoes Au Gratin, Green Beans, and Whole Grain Bread.

 

 

 

I love fixing these Ribs! The night before I cut the rack in half so they fits in the Crock Pot. I then rub in JB’s Fat Boy Haugwaush BBQ Crock pot Ribs 003Sauce and place them in Hefty Zip Lock Bag, then into the fridge to marinate all night. JB’s Fat Boy has several sauces and rubs for all meats. I’ve use them all and purchase them at a local Kroger. So back to the ribs. Next day I line my Crock Pot with a Reynolds Crock Pot Bag. Another fantastic invention! No scrubbing the Crock Pot with these after using just throw the bag away and wipe out the Crock Pot of any moisture, clean up done! I spray the bag with Pam Spray and add my ribs to the Crock Pot. I just tighten the lid, turn it on low, and I’m done. I cook them anywhere from 7 – 8 hours, I cooked these for dinner tonight for 8 hours. After about 5 hours I poured about a half bottle of the BBQ Sauce over top the ribs. The aroma through out the day is amazing! The only hard part is trying to get the ribs out whole, they’re so tender they fall apart and no knives needed, the bones just fall or pull out. Fantastic flavor, moist and tender, and very easy to prepare.

 

 
For side dishes my Mom prepared some more of the fresh Green Beans, or a Mess of Beans as she says, she had purchased from Jungle Jim’s Market and i prepared some Idahoan Au Gratin Homestyle Casserole,along with Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. I left the Idahoan Product info and instructions at the end of the post. For dessert a slice of baked Pillsbury Nut Quick Bread with 2 scoops of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream.

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Bison Short Ribs w/ Red Potatoes, Mini Carrots, and Garlic Knots Bread.

 

 

Crock Pot Bison Short Ribs 008

Pork Baby Back Ribs are just flat out drooling delicious out of the Crock Pot so I thought I would try Short Ribs in the Crock Pot, Bison Short Ribs! First time I’ve tried Bison Short Ribs, I purchased them from Buffalo Gal and them froze in the freezer. After letting them thaw Saturday, before I went to bed I Seasoned them with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper. I then rubbed J B’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce on them and placed them in a gallon size Hefty Zip Bag, I added the remaining Sauce in the bottle to the bag and sealed it and placed it in the fridge to marinate over night.

 

 
Sunday morning I quartered about a half a bag of small Red Potatoes and placed them in the bottom of the Crock Pot along with 1 large White Onion that I also cut into quarters. Not only will this serve as base for my Bison Short Ribs, so they are not sitting on the bottom of the Crock Pot, but will also add some great flavor. Then I added a 1 can of Swanson Low Sodium Beef Broth, more added flavor and to help to tenderize the Short Ribs. I then removed the Short Ribs from the fridge and the marinade and placed them on top of the Potatoes and Onion in the Crock Pot and put the lid on the Crock Pot. The rest is easy, waiting! I set the Crock Pot on Low and let them simmer for 8 hours. The Ribs came out moist and delicious! Huge difference between the Bison Short Ribs and the pork or Beef Short Ribs, the Bison is so much leaner and meatier than the others. I’ll take the Bison over the other types anytime! Lots leftover for some great sandwiches for lunch tomorrow.

For side dishes along with the Red Potatoes that were at the bottom of the Crock Pot I prepared some boiled Mini Carrots and baked some of the, Walmart Bakery, Savory Garlic Knot Bread. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.
