Well hello y'all!
Why do I say y'all?
I was in Chattanooga all weekend visiting my mom and dad!
We had such a good time and enjoyed every minute of my family and the beautiful scenery.
It was amazing.
And the people were even more amazing.
Annnnd it was my Ellie's first airplane ride and she did amazing too!
It was the first time Ellie cried (sobbed really), when leaving her "mamie" and "papa"'s house and it broke all of our hearts and made us cry a little harder.
As we were taking off, she looked out the window and said softly, "bye bye mamie and papa".
Big, fat gulp.
So I missed you all so much and am glad to be back to blogging!
I have a little secret.
Until about a year ago, I never liked ribs.
In fact, I didn't like any kind of BBQ rib or pork.
To me, the existence of Famous Dave's or Smoky Bones was unthinkable.
How does a restaurant that makes its livelihood on ribs or BBQ pork-like concoctions even keep afloat??
I just hadn't had the perfect rib yet.
My mama and gramma made ribs growing up and they were indeed yummy.
But to me?
It wasn't the recipe, it wasn't the cook, it was me.
Until last year when my bestie Rebecca told me about this amazeballs rib recipe that is so good it would make even me, the ultimate rib hata swoon.
And swoon I did.
And the best part?
Four-ish Ingredients and easy as pie to make.
Or really, easy as Kraft Mac and Cheese to make because we all know pie isn't easy to make.
Four-Ish Ingredient Lick Your Fingers, Smack Your Lips Cuz Its All Good Ribs
1- 1 package of pork country ribs (I use five to six ribs for our family of four)
2- 2 bottles of your fave BBQ sauce ( I used 2- 99 cent bottles of Open Pit and these were amazing so imagine how good they would be with 4 dolla a bottle sauces? )
3- 1 onion, quartered
4- 1 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. pepper
Get a large stockpot and put ribs, sauce, onion and spices into the pot.
Add enough water to cover the ribs.
Bring to a boil.
After coming to a boil, boil on medium-high for an hour.
(the original recipe calls for less boil time but when my mom made the recipe the ribs weren't cooked enough. So an hour is perfect, trust me.)
Then take off heat and transfer to the grill.
Grill on an oiled grill for 20 minutes until brown and crispy outside.
It will be tender inside and caramely and sweet on outside.
It is insane how good these taste.
You will love this so much and it is so easy to make.
And they are that good.
Take that Famous Dave.
