Last night was the first time I'd ever made ribs (sad, considering I've lived my whole life in Texas!). My college-aged daughter, her fiancé, a couple of their friends, and my 25-year-old son ate with us. I was tired, so I cooked dinner, then headed to bed, leaving them to put away leftovers. To my surprise, there were hardly any!
I followed the suggestion to bake the ribs for a course hours instead of braising them. I also followed a couple other posted ideas...I doubled the recipe, seasoned the ribs with onion & garlic powder, herb blend, and paprika, baked them tightly covered at 300* F for 2 hours, drained off the fat, then mixed the sauce. I added 1/2 the sauce and baked covered for 30 minutes, then added remaining sauce and finished baking uncovered for about 45 minutes until they were done. I made the sauce from 2 cans cola, 2 cops low carb ketchup, not quite 1/4 cup BBQ sauce, and a couple Tablespoons of honey. I served the ribs with baked beans, broccoli slaw (added a squirt or two of honey to the pre-made dressing, corn on the cob, watermelon, and my daughter brought warm brownies with vanilla ice cream.
There are few things that make me as happy as feeding a group of college kids and having no leftovers to put away!!!!!
