Rib Night

Don't you just love Rib Night?
I had forgotten completely, to defrost meat for supper last night, so what could be made lickety-split.....hmmmmm....I know, Pork Loin Country Style Ribs.
Please don't ask for this delectable, lip-smacking recipe because there is no way I could even duplicate these sweet, aromatic, lavish and tender to the fork, finger-lickin' ribs., but you can sure bet that I will try. That's why I took a picture of these homemade ingredients. They include my Tomato Basil Sauce and the Apple Jelly, combined with Sweet Baby Rays BBQ Sauce. My memory is not as sharp as it used to be so photo memory has become a blessing.
To do these ribs in a snap, with your favorite sauce, even from frozen, I zapped them in the microwave for 3 min. just to separate them, put them into a pot of boiling water, added salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and a bayleaf. Let them boil for at least 35-40 minutes or until near done and tender.
Remove the ribs from the broth, place on a sheet of foil that has been sprayed with oil so they do not stick during cooking.
Slather with half of the sauce.
Bake or grill for an additional 15 min.
Turn, adding the rest of your favorite sauce. Cook another 5-10 min.

Eat with a warning! These are quick, but deadly to the tastebuds. They are
that good! Please enjoy with a side dish so you don't eat all of them by yourself.

Now, go out and buy some thick Pork Loin Country Style Ribs and have a rib night.
Say your prayers and enjoy!

I love ribs and I love the looks of that sauce. I also like the way you improvise by quickening the time to compensate for the freezing. I also like ribs just seasoned and baked. That is how my mother did it when we butchered a hog. Of course it was on a wood cook stove.

I am praying that you are inviting me over for dinner! Yumm! Those look so good! I had to laugh though cause you cook like me. I can never remember what I put in some of my "inventions".

I'm not much on ribs, but I would surely eat YOURS.... Sounds wonderful... Where in the world do you get nice looking and tasty tomatoes this time of year???? I hate tomatoes until the summer ones come in... George eats those little cherry tomatoes --but I don't eat tomatoes at all until summer....

You must be a fabulous cook!!!

Bless All Of You and Have A WONDERFUL Weekend
