It’s Rib night. I am dressing these to impress. The last batch of ribs wasn’t as great as I had hoped. So I am trying a new recipe and plan to wow the children.
The recipe I used is adapted from the Ted Reader Book, Sticky Fingers and Tenderloins, I didn’t have everything on hand, so used what was in my pantry, and improvised a little.
|My braising liquid ran out about two thirds of the way through the cooking time. Keep an eye on the liquid levels and make sure to keep them up, or your favorite baking pan may get ruined.|
Maple Bacon BBQ Sauce
I didn’t like the chunks of onion and bacon in my sauce so I used a hand blender to make the sauce smooth.
Also, I did not have applesauce on hand, so I peeled and cored two large apples. Using my blender I puréed them until I had something resembling applesauce.
After cooking the sauce, it was still very tangy. Thankfully I was prepping them ahead of time, for grilling the next day. Leaving the sauce overnight allowed the flavors to mingle. So the pretty good sauce is absolutely amazing the next day.
This recipe just goes to show you that with a little creativity and determination, you can create something totally amazing. We had 2 racks of ribs between 3 of us. There were barely enough leftovers, and really we could have split what was left and finished the ribs right then and there. These were the best ribs I have ever made, ever.
These ribs were served with a light salad and some veggies and dip. Really the healthy sides that went with this dish were largely forgotten due to the spectacularity of the ribs.
Did I mention they were really really good?
