So, I had bought ribs from Costco a while back and still had some left over -duh I bought them at Costco. Which for a family of 2 seems ridiculous, but it means I ALWAYS have some kind of meat in the freezer! So I called my Mum and asked her for her rib recipe. Which I couldn't make the last time I made ribs because this recipe requires you to marinate the ribs overnight, ideally.
2 Tbs grated lemon rind
1/3 C fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/4 C grated onion
1/4 vegetable oil (olive oil)
2 Tbs Oregano
1 1/2 tsp garlic salt/powder
2 Tbs liquid honey
Turn the ribs occasionally and baste with liquid. NOTE: make sure to line your baking pan with tinfoil! The sugar in the honey will stick and burn onto your pan!!! Save your baking sheet!!!
Now while the ribs are cooking I decided to make roast asparagus and rice pilaf. The asparagus is easy. Trim the woody ends and place on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place on the top rack of the oven for the last 15-20 minutes of the ribs cooking time. Take out and turn asparagus while cooking if desired! You can do this same method on the BBQ in a BBQ basket!
Not the best presentation, but I was hungry and didn't care what it looked like. Next time, I promise a better presentation! PS these are the tail ends of the ribs-riblettes?-and are quite crispy (personal preference)
Ty had 'real' ribs, so his plate looked different than mine!
