Today’s Menu: Montgomery Inn Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich w/ Baked Fries
Another cool morning, in the 30’s and overcast. After Breakfast and my morning workout i took Mom up to Kroger, she needed just a few items. Back home I had to get the leaf blower out, lot of leaves on the deck and driveway. It finally looks as though the leaves are about finished! I have a bit of a health concern that has popped up. I have a cyst that has started on the back of left leg stump. It came up very quick. I called my Dermatologist and he’s going to get me in Tuesday morning at 9:00 am. Hopefully nothing, but I still have to be very cautious. Then Wednesday afternoon I go to a General Surgeon to have that knot removed from my left index finger knuckle. Just a cyst, nothing serious. Too many Doctors for me. Anyway for dinner tonight it’s Montgomery Inn Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich w/ Baked Fries.
I used the Montgomery Inn Hardwood Smoked Pulled Pork w/ Barbecue Sauce. Montgomery Inn is one of the Montgomery Inn original Barbecue and Ribs Restaurant in the Cincinnati area. It has some of the finest food, love them Ribs anywhere! They also sell their Ribs and Pulled Pork and Chicken at all Kroger. So when it’s Pulled Pork I almost always use the Montgomery Inn brand. Anyway you just heat it in a medium sauce pan until it’s warmed and you have BBQ. It’s the perfect combination of the Pork and the mouth watering Montgomery Inn Sauce that makes this so delicious! Plus it’s only 110 calories and 8 carbs per serving. I served it on a Kroger Lite Wheat Hamburger Bun. I also baked up some Ore Ida Crinkle Fries. Served these with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup and also had an Ice-Cold Dr. Pepper that I let set in the freezer for about 10 minutes. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Mousse.
Just heat & eat! US inspected and passed by Department of Agriculture. Previously frozen for your protection. The world’s greatest pulled pork barbecue is now all yours! We slow-smoke our choice cuts of pork for hours over hardwood coals; blend the lean, juicy meat with our secret spices; and then add our world-famous Montgomery Inn Barbecue Sauce to give it that special flavor. Enjoy!
Refreeze or keep refrigerated. Microwave Oven: 1. Remove desired amount of barbecue from tray and place in microwave safe bowl. 2. Cover with plastic wrap and heat on High power (100%) for two (2) minutes. 3. Pull film back from edge of container and stir product thoroughly. 4. Replace film and heat for an additional 1-2 minutes or until hot! 5. Remove from oven and stir well before serving. Stove Top: 1. Place desired amount of barbecue in a medium size sauce pan. 2. Heat over medium low heat 6-12 minutes (covered) and occasionally stir so as not to burn. 3. Remove product from stove and serve. We highly recommend cooking our barbecue from a thawed state. Remove any uncooked barbecue from original packaging and place in a sealable container and refrigerate.

Today’s Menu: BBQ Country Style Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Baked French Bread
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.
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.
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.

The St. Paul sandwich can be found in many Chinese American restaurants in St. Louis, Missouri, as well as other cities in Missouri, including Columbia, Jefferson City, and Springfield. The sandwich consists of an egg foo young patty (made with mung bean sprouts and minced white onions) served with dill pickle slices, white onion, mayonnaise, lettuce, and tomato between two slices of white bread. The St. Paul sandwich also comes in different combinations and specials, such as chicken, pork, shrimp, beef, and other varieties.
One source has the origin of the St. Paul sandwich dating to the early 1940s, when Chinese restaurants created the sandwich as a unique dish that was in a more familiar sandwich form that would appeal to the palates of Midwestern Americans, an early example of fusion cuisine. According to local legend, the St. Paul sandwich was invented by Steven Yuen at Park Chop Suey in Lafayette Square, a neighborhood near downtown St. Louis; Yuen named the sandwich after his hometown of St. Paul, Minnesota.
Food writers James Beard and Evan Jones believed that the Denver or Western sandwich was created by “the many Chinese chefs who cooked for logging camps and railroad gangs in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries” and was probably derived from egg foo young. They believed that the early Denver sandwiches were actually St. Paul sandwiches.
This sandwich was featured in the PBS documentary Sandwiches That You Will Like in 2003 and will be feature in a book by artist Kelly Pratt to be released in 2016 called Stately Sandwiches as the sandwich chosen to represent the state of Missouri.
It is usually only available in Chinese restaurants in the St. Louis metropolitan area as well as at least one Chinese American restaurant in Columbia, Missouri, Chinese Wok Express on Broadway, at Happy Garden in Jefferson City, Missouri and at Yen’s Chinese Food restaurant in Springfield, Missouri, the owners of which are originally from St. Louis. It is also available in Chinese-American restaurants in California and Oregon with regional names such as “Egg Foo Young on Bun” at Lung Fung in the Kenton neighborhood of Portland, OR.

A sloppy joe is a sandwich consisting of ground beef, onions, tomato sauce or ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, and other seasonings, served on a hamburger bun. The dish originated in the United States during the early 20th century.
Early 20th century American cookbooks offer plenty of sloppy-joe type recipes, though they go by different titles: Toasted Deviled Hamburgers, Chopped Meat Sandwiches, Hamburg a la Creole, Beef Mironton, and Minced Beef Spanish Style.
Marilyn Brown, Director of the Consumer Test Kitchen at H.K. Heinz in Pittsburgh, says their research at the Carnegie Library suggests that the sloppy joe began in a Sioux City, Iowa, cafe as a “loose meat sandwich” in 1930, the creation of a cook named Joe.
References to sloppy joes as sandwiches begin by the 1940s. One example is a 1944 Coshocton Tribune ad under the heading “Good Things to Eat” says “Sloppy Joes’ – 10c – Originated in Cuba – You’ll ask for more – The Hamburg Shop” and elsewhere on the same page, “Hap is introducing that new sandwich at The Hamburg Shop – Sloppy Joes – 10c.”
The term “sloppy Joe’s” had an earlier definition of any cheap restaurant or lunch counter serving cheap food quickly, since 1940 or a type of casual clothing.
Food companies began producing packaged sloppy joe sauce, such as Manwich, by the 1960s.
Several variations of the sloppy joe exist in North America. In Quebec, Canada, sandwiches of stewed ground beef
such as pain à la viande and pain fourré gumbo are usually served on hot dog buns. A similar sandwich, the “dynamite,” exists in the area around Woonsocket, Rhode Island, and is distinguished by the use of onions, bell peppers, and sometimes celery.
Stewed meat sandwiches are common in several other culinary traditions as well. The rou jia mo, from China’s Shaanxi Province, consists of stewed pork, beef, or lamb on a steamed bun. Keema pav of Indian cuisine uses a pav bread roll filled with keema, a minced, stewed, curried meat.
Ground turkey or textured vegetable protein may be used as a substitute for ground beef.

A BBQ Hint…..
It takes time for your caramelised BBQ crust to develop and this won’t happen if you’re continually flipping your steaks or burgers. Only turn once or twice. And definitely don’t squash everything down as this forces the juices to run out and leaves you with sad dry meat. Sausages are also best left alone – piercing the skins dries them out.
Thanks to Bubs for passing this grill tip along!
