Did you say “ribbed”??? and saying “Thanks”


Again it has been a while since my last posting here on burned cornflakes however I assure you I have been creating in the kitchen from delicious homemade soups, to chilli experiments and discovering how hard it is asking for help. Quite frankly when I get the help (whether asked for or not) I realise now just how awesome it is to have it. I broke my hand just 2 weeks ago, it has been a learning curve to get things done one handed and asking for help on the simplest of tasks and I have been dealing out gratitude by the truck load. Some of the many things I needed help doing have been cutting, slicing, grating, turning lids, pulling lids off, holding the plate/pot/misc item still while I work which probably looked a tad ridiculous….. Which is why sometimes the task was simply lifted from my fingers, which I gotta admit, is kinda nice.

So I have a recipe for you that hubs has recently perfected, taste tested by the family and has an overall 5 star rating for ease, simplicity and yumminess. It is a pork rib recipe I was taught by my cousins and hubs nailed the new cooking process.

This is how it goes:

Kitchen stuff you will need: sharp knife, cutting board, large bowl, tongs, grill, large pot, stove top (possibly hot plate depending on its heat abilities)

Ingredients:

  • Pork back or side ribs (bone in)
  • water
  • Fresh Ground Sea Salt to taste
  • Lemon juice (hubs used juice from 7 lemons)
  • Fresh Ground Pepper (if desired)

Directions:

In a large pot bring ribs to a boil and bubble on med-high heat for 45 min

During the last 5 (or so) minutes preheat your BBQ to high (about 500 degrees)

Remove ribs from pot and take out to your hot grill, cook 10 minutes per side for a total of approx. 20 min.

On cutting board slice ribs to individual pieces and place in large bowl. Douse in lemon juice and salt (and pepper), toss and mix (careful these will be hot)

Place on table and bask in glow of awesomeness as the “mmmmm’s” and “nom nom nomming” start rolling in!

I recommend serving with corn, green beans and mini potatoes.

Happy Eating!
