It’s cold outside! It’s also raining and Hannah has managed to pick up yet another cold. We aren’t venturing out of the house, so there’s only one thing to do – cook something delicious! This week’s My Sunday Photo is part photography, part World’s Worst Food Blog! It’s all about ribs.
Cold weather is the perfect excuse to put a large chunk of meat in the oven and cook it for hours on end. This weekend, I decided to try ribs. I have only ever cooked ribs once before and the result wasn’t great. They came out very dry and hard. After a bit of research, it turns out my mistake was to marinate them, then stick them in the oven.
For tender, juicy ribs that fall off the bone, a dry rub is the key. The home-made barbeque sauce is only brushed on at the end, to create that mouth-watering sticky glaze. I followed Curtis Stone’s excellent recipe and the results were outstanding! The only thing I didn’t have was the smoky flavour, because I cooked them in the oven and not the barbeque. I didn’t feel like I was missing out.
Try not to drool as you feast your eyes on this work of culinary art…
Ribs, Glorious Ribs
As if the ribs weren’t enough, I partnered them with home-made oven-baked chips, coleslaw and sauerkraut. A big bowl of the home-made barbeque sauce on the side for dipping completed the dish. It’s fair to say I was one satisfied man after dinner last night! Best of all, there’s left overs, so I’ll be right back into it again today!
