The Big Easy

Not New Orleans, honeychild, but a nice big package of ribs in barbecue sauce from Niman Ranch. Looking for something I could cook on the grill and not start the oven during our recent unlamented heatwave, I stumbled upon these pre-cooked and pre-sauced pork ribs. All I did was light the charcoal and flip them once. They were done to a turn in 10 minutes flat - even beat the veggies to the table!

They were good. Seriously, stickily, finger-licking, red mustache-making, three paper napkin using, bless my soul good!

If I were the nitpicking kind, I might suggest that you baste them with a little of their sauce from the package mixed with a tiny bit of apple cider vinegar to just slightly temper the sweetness (that's what I'll do next time) but I'm not the nitpicking kind. We tucked right in to these big beauties and enjoyed every bite. One rack of these meaty darlings was plenty for the two of us and you could easily stretch them further if you served them with more sides than we did - maybe some cornbread or hush puppies?

Anyway, they were big in flavor and dead easy.

Morgan, colloquialism. A Southern favorite in our country are hushpuppies, a fried corn sort of a dumpling. Delicious when done properly and they are filling!

Nancy, you can find them at Andronico's or, if you don't have one near you, any market that sells Niman Ranch stuff might have them.

KatieZ, hope you get your ribs while you are Stateside.

Chilebrown, I know, I know! Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. But they were maxima delicious.

Blushing hostess, welcome and, yes, Morgan is a card!
