Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes and Texas Toast (Lite)

 

 

 

I was starving this morning so I wanted a full Breakfast! So for Breakfast this morning I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off! One delicious Breakfast! Did some yard work before the rain showers moved in for the day. For Dinner tonight – Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes and Texas Toast (Lite).

 

 

 

I purchased a 1/2 Rack of Pork Loin Back Ribs from Meijer yesterday and having them for Dinner tonight. Mom and Dad wanted Steak from the Outback Steakhouse, so I placed a delivery order for them for their Dinner.

 

 

 

Last night before I went to bed I put half rack 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 1/4 cup of water. Got the Ribs out of the fridge, discarded the Hefty Bags, and put the rack in the Crock Pot where I let it cook and simmer, on low, for about 7 hours. Long up in the afternoon you can start smelling the aroma of the Ribs, Rib intoxicating!

 

 

 

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, when eating them you need no knife, the bones just slide out. 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. I would like to 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. Then I also baked a couple of slices of New York Bakery Lite Texas Toast, It’s fewer calories, carbs, and fat than normal Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and 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.

Baby back ribs served with fries and cornbread

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”.

(Crock Pot Ribs) – Barbecue Rib Nachos

Today’s Menu: (Crock Pot Ribs) – Barbecue Rib Nachos

 

 

Had a toasted Healthy Life English Muffin, lightly buttered, and a cup of my Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Right after Breakfast Me and Mom headed to Jungle Jim’s Market in Fairfield. The most amazing grocery store you could ever be in! It’s tough going in and leaving with what you wanted, you always end up with more! We didn’t stay long though, we can’t leave Dad alone too long. Outside it is miserable! It’s sunny and 92 degrees with the humidity at 88%! So no outdoor activities today. Did a few things around the house and watched a couple of shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight a new recipe, and one I was looking forward to try. Tonight its Barbecue Rib Nachos.

 

 

I came across this recipe on Facebook and could not wait to try it, Barbecue Rib Nachos! This has no choice but to be good, Ribs and Nachos, no choice! I purchased the Pork Back Ribs at Meijer yesterday. I’m using Meijer Pork Back Ribs. The Meijer Pork products always turn out great, very moist and tender. I’m preparing them the same way I always do Ribs, in the Crock Pot.

 

 

 

 

 

I started by Marinating the Ribs in JB’s Fat Boy HaugWaush BBQ Sauce. My favorite BBQ Sauce, I purchase this at Kroger. I Ribs came packaged as 1/2 Racks. First time I’ve seen 1/2 Racks like that, good idea though if you are just cooking for one. Plus it saves me time by not having to cut the Ribs, which I have to do to fit in the Crock Pot. So I put the Ribs into a gallon Hefty Bag, added the BBQ Sauce to them, sealed the bag, and let them Marinate overnight in the fridge.

 

 

 

Next day to prepare them I first got out the Crock Pot and put the plastic liner in. I love these liners, they make clean up a breeze. I then sprayed the liner with Pam Cooking Spray, added a 1/2 cup of Water, and turned the Crock Pot on to low and put the lid on. Got the Ribs out of the fridge and let them sit for about 20 minutes before adding them to the Crock Pot. I shook off the excess Sauce before putting them in the Crock Pot. The Ribs are in and I put the lid on and let them cook for 7 hours. In about the 4th hour the you can start to smell the aroma of the Ribs!

 

 

Ready to bake!

 

As the Ribs were cooking I gathered my Ingredients to make the Nachos. I’ll need Ribs (which were already coking), JB’s Fat Boy HaugWaush BBQ Sauce (Some for the Ribs and extra for the Nacho Dish), Sargento Shredded Mozzarella, Tostito’s Whole Grain Scoops , Litehouse Spring Onions, Lettuce, and Jalapeno Slices.
 

 

 

 

After 7 hours of Slow Cooking the Ribs are fall off the bone Ribtastic! I removed the Rib Meat from the bones, which was very easy as the bones just pulled out, and set aside. I got out the large Cast Iron Skillet and gave it a light coat of Pam Cooking Spray. Set the oven to Broil. Layer 1/3 of the Scoops with 1/3 of the cheese and BBQ Sauce into the Skillet. Repeat 2 more times until the nachos are built. Broil for 90 seconds or until the Cheese is melted and bubbly. I garnished with some Litehouse Spring Onions, Lettuce, and some Jalapeno Slices.

 

 

 

…and ready to eat!

All I can say is INCREDIBLE! Hats off to the Seasoned Sprinkle website, nothing less than excellent recipe! The Ribs, BBQ Sauce, Cheese, and Scoop Chips all blend together to make this one delicious dish. Ribs and Nachos, go figure! The original recipe and web link is at the end of the post. The original recipe has a recipe for the BBQ Sauce, where i used the JB’S Fat Boy Sauce. Also they used Spare Ribs and I used Pork Back Ribs. It all turned out to be a winning recipe! For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes and Bourbon and Brown Sugar Baked Beans

 

 


For Breakfast on this Saturday Morning I toasted a Healthy Life English Muffin and topped it with a Poached Egg. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly sunny and 78 degrees outside, had some more rain late in the day. I had bought a couple of Tomato Plants at Meijer, and they were in sad shape. But I bought them anyway, so I repotted them today. All caught up on cleaning so I had the cart out most of the day. For Dinner tonight Mom’s Favorite, Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes and Bourbon and Brown Sugar Baked Beans.

 


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 JB’s Fat Boy All Purpose Rub and then covered the Ribs in JB’s Fat Boy Haug Waush BBQ Sauce to marinate all night in the fridge.

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

Crock Pot Pork Back Ribs 005

 

 
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.

Mom had been wanting some Ribs, so I picked up some at Kroger the other day, they always have top quality Pork. 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, discarded the Hefty Bags, and put them in the Crock Pot where I let them cook and simmer, on low,e. 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 no clean-up. Just wipe it down and store it for the next time.

 

 

 
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 out in Ross at Farmer’s Stand and I prepared some Idahoan Au Gratin Homestyle Casserole. I left the Idahoan Product info and instructions at the end of the post. For dessert a Healthy Choice Vanilla Bean Frozen Greek Yogurt.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
