Ronaldo, aka Lawn Boy, arrived this morning with his crew to begin the long awaited sprinkler installation and sodding of our front yard. Unlike DAD, on time and ready to work! (Speaking of DAD, I’ve hired him to do another job, but nothing major!) I’ve taken ‘before’ pics of the yard and will continue to until they are finished. Hopefully they will be finished by the weekend, but who knows!
Now, the ribs Mrs Serious made yesterday were TOO GOOD!!!!! We ate the remainder of them tonight and they were just as good! They also are so easy to prepare and you don’t need a bbq!! So here is the recipe from Gourmet magazine.
footnote: Serves 4 to 6 as an Hors D’Oeuvre or 2 to 4 as an entree. And if there is a more satisfying investment of 15 minutes, I have yet to find it!!
Orange Soy Baby Back Ribs
2 Racks baby back pork ribs (2 to 3 lbs total), cut into individual ribs
1/4 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon ground cumin
Put ribs in a large sealable platic bag. Stir together orange juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, honey and cumin in a bowl until sugar is dissolved, then pour marinade over ribs in bag and seal bag, pressing out excess air. Marinate ribs, chilled, turning bag after 30 minutes, for 1 hour total.
Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 375F.
Transfer ribs and marinade to a 13 by 9 inch baking dish and arrange ribs in 1 layer, not touching. Roast ribs 30 minutes, then turn over ribs with tongs and continue roasting until they are tender and well browned and marinade is thick and syrupy, about 20 to 30 minutes more.
I PROMISE that you will love them!!!!!
Have a Great Tuesday!
