Ribs R Us!

It’s not summer without at least one night of spare ribs on the grill. Since ribs are not the most heart healthy this will be our one time indulgence and indulge we did!


Honey-Chipotle-Glazed Ribs
Bleu Cheese Slaw
Pesto Green Beans

Honey-Chipotle Glazed Ribs

¼ cup minced canned chipotle chilies in adobe
½ cup honey
¼ cup dried mustard powder
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1 rack of spareribs

Oven: 400

In small bowl, combine the chilies, ¼ cup honey (save a ¼ cup for later)
Mustard powder, 2 T salt and 2 t pepper.

Place a large double layer of foil on a big cookie tin. Place ribs on top and coat with chipotle mixture. Wrap ribs tightly in foil and bake on sheet for 2 hours.

Heat grill to medium. Remove ribs from foil, brush ribs with ¼ honey and grill until lightly charred—2 to 3 minutes each side. These are quite tasty! (and no dirty pan)

Bleu Cheese Slaw

1 small pkg of cabbage slaw mix from grocery
Several heaping T Marzetti Bleu Cheese Salad Dressing
A few splashes of champagne vinegar

Mix it all up and refrigerate several hours before serving

Pesto Green Beans

Microwave some whole green beans and toss with sliced cherry tomatoes and homemade pesto (see earlier post-July 25,2009)
