Slow Cooker Asian Baby-Back Ribs

If your family is a fan of both ribs and Asian flavors, here’s the perfect slow cooker meal idea for you and yours — keep this one in your back pocket for Sundays when pork ribs will be on sale for a ridiculously low price during the Seven Days, Seven Ways to Save Sale. Stop in to the Store early enough in the day that you can set up all of these ingredients in your slow cooker. Then walk away from your kitchen and revel in the fact that your house is going to smell amazing all day long, and dinner will be ready when you want it with hardly any fuss, and very little expense. Enjoy this one; we sure did.

Favorite Baby Back Ribs

The husband and I went to dinner at another couple’s house this past Friday night. We had brats on the grill and they were fabulous – my first brat of the season in fact, yum. Our hostess (we’ll call her ‘A.G.’) mentioned grilling anything more complicated than basic burgers and brats (like ribs, for instance) sends her into a total tiz. She said she has never and would never attempt ribs because she is convinced she would wreck them and not do it right and spend a lot of money on an inedible disaster. Well that’s a bunch of hooey, said I. Total and complete baloney. I’ve got the perfect recipe for foolproof ribs, and here you have it. Anyone can make them …. anyone!

Chili-Rubbed Ribs, Revisited

I would have loved to have brought you a brand-spankin’ new recipe today, but I still have company from Christmas. Company makes for a congested kitchen and writers block and although I’ve been to the grocery store too many times to count over the past week, we have absolutely nothing in the house to eat (how does this happen?). I give up. I’m abandoning ship. I don’t want to unload the dishwasher anymore. Before cabin fever drives us all batty, we’re setting off to do the Milwaukee thing — frogs and mummies are on display downtown, have you heard? I like to show my guests a good time, so that’s where we’re headed.
