A Meat Worth Breaking the Rules for

barbecued ribs


His ribs are finger looking good.


Hubby is a meat eater while I love vegetables and pasta. I research alternative medicine and health issues so am quite aware that consuming  red meat to an excess can be detrimental to our health and hubby is beginning to agree with me, so he eats very little beef, and we purchase more fish, fowl, and pork. Hubby loves meat and excels in the cooking out department, while I am the chief cook in the house. I make coleslaw, corn on the cob, potato salad or macaroni salad, and corn bread then serve fresh fruit for our cook outs. But I confess, although I seldom eat meat, I will make an exception for his finger looking good ribs.

 A little of this and little of that makes his sauce so tasty.

My hubby makes the most delicious grilled ribs. We generally cook them on the stove before grilling. He is extremely careful to be sure the meat is cooked all the way through and he says that parboiling them first helps to make them cook quicker and tenderer.  Then he makes the most awesome barbecue sauce to place on them when done.  I get to gather the ingredients for him and then stand back and watch. My husband doesn’t generally cook so this is one of those rare moments I treasure. :-) I can only tell you that he uses brown sugar, fresh lemons, ketchup, honey and store brand barbecue sauce.  He cooks it on top of the stove until it thickens and after a little bit of this and that and few taste tests it is declared ready.

Hubby deserves a new grill.

I was looking at some of the new barbecue grills at the store the other day, as our children borrowed ours, and some of these are fancier than my cook stove. I am thinking about buying hubby a new grill for father’s day and maybe getting one that uses gas cylinders. In fact they even have disposable gas cylinders now. How convenient is that? 

Thanks for visiting me today, take care, stay healthy and God bless!

I eat very little meat too, so I have to take iron supplement.

Good to know about the disposable gas cylinder..that is a great idea.

I'm a meat-eater - though not to excess - and there are a couple of things I would find it really hard to give up - Barbecued ribs, duck in orange sauce and bacon. Even the smell of bacon has made most of the vegetarians in my family drool.
