Rack of Ribs oven roasted with homemade bbq sauce
served with Homemade Coleslaw, Buttery Corn on the Cob and Anya Potatoes, boiled in their skins.
Raspberries, Blueberries and Vanilla Ice Cream...
I did think of making a key lime pie or a pecan pie. I love the name pecan pie it always reminds me of the film When Harry Met Sally when they start talking in silly voices peeecan pyyyyyy.... So I guess I have to make this before we move on to another country.
Hubby, Little and Small are loving all of this meat but I'm feeling a little over indulged in the meat department. Our next country is going to need careful consideration, I want lean and fresh. For a start my cousin is getting married in France in just over a month, we'll be there and then we're heading off down to Spain for a few weeks so I am rather desperate to be feeling a little slimmer. Note, I didn't say to actually be slimmer, just to feel it!
Little Foodies Homemade BBQ Sauce (I hadn't realised the time. I'll post the recipe later as off for a drink in my favourite country pub.)
6.20pm 5 July 07 - Where was I... yes the BBQ Sauce we made this time included...
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 tablespoon english mustard
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon runny honey
1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon teriyaki sauce
2 cloves of garlic crushed or crushed with a knife and a sprinkle of salt to make a paste
4 tablespoons tomato ketchup or 2 tablespoons of tomato puree
2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar
Mix all together in a medium size bowl and then pour over your chosen food ready to cook.
If you're going to be using this to marinade and cook with don't bother cooking it. However, if you want it as a dipping sauce you need to put it in a pan and cook on a medium heat for 5 to 10 minutes. Until it changes colour to a deeper red/brown colour.
I like to play with bbq sauce. I've made it with just sugar, mustard, tomato puree and vinegar and I've made it with an even longer list of ingredients to what you see above... The one above was very nice smothered over the ribs but I realise it's a lot of ingredients.
Happy July 4th - Happy Independence Day!
