The Best Spare Ribs

This Barbecue Spare Ribs recipe is fall off the bone tender and absolutely delicious.  The best part is, you can use any barbecue sauce you want and still get the same results.  So if you’ve already got a favorite recipe you like to whip up or one that is already bottled, you can skip the barbecue sauce preparation altogether.  Just a rack of ribs and a cup of sauce is all you’re going to need to bake these ribs to perfection.

How to make Barbecue Spare Ribs Tender

The secret, for Barbecue Spare ribs, lies in the slow and low method.  This recipe takes a total of 3 hours from beginning to end but it is worth it.  As you can see in my video recipe tutorial, the meat will just melt in your mouth.  And as far as P.F. Chang’s recipe is concerned, the truth is, this recipe is better and I say that for two reasons.  First, Chang’s doesn’t season their ribs; just a barbecue sauce marinade for 24 hours. Second, they cook their ribs in half the time I’m recommending and at a higher temperature, so the ribs aren’t as tender.  That being said, I highly suggest that you use this slow and low method if you want the best results.

Barbecue Spare Ribs Ingredients:

1 rack Spare Ribs
1 cup Barbecue Sauce
1 tbsp Seafood Boil Seasoning (Zatarains, Slap Ya Mama or Old Bay), optional

Double Ground Beef Burger (DGB Burger)

DGB Burger Main Pic

A Great Burger

I love a Double Ground Beef Burger. Some people don’t and they’re very particular about how they want their meat. Some people think they know but really don’t.  And because a hamburger is so commonly found on just about every street corner in America these days, everyone’s an expert. So If you know how you like your burger, by all means, have it your way.  But, If you want to try something fun and different then try it this way, because this burger is Plump, juicy and full of flavor.

Burger Toppings are up to You

I didn’t add “Exact” amounts of anything in this Burger recipe.  Hamburgers are pretty self explanatory and I’m sure you know what you like on it and what you don’t so use this as a basic guide only.  I will mention that you should definitely salt and pepper both sides of your meat patties thoroughly and absolutely butter and toast your buns.  But, that’s all I’m going to say as a must do.  Toppings, from there on out, are going to have to be up to you and the way you think you like your hamburgers.  Personally, I do recommend everything that is listed, down below the video.

If you’re interested in cooking some sides to go along with your DGB Burger, try my Onion Rings or Sweet Potato fries.  I swear that they are, absolutely, the very best of recipes.  The onion rings are crispy and tasty as ever and the Sweet Potato Fries have two dipping sauce recipes that are unmatched.

Teriyaki and Mesquite Shish Kebabs

Shish KabobsGrilling Shish Kabobs!

I love Shish Kabobs!  It’s all in the marination.  Okay, so the meat cut matters too, but if you have a great Teriyaki or Mesquite marinade, you’re already half way there.  Here I’m using Yoshida’s and McCormicks for the Meat, and a little Olive Oil and Herb blend I like to whip up for the vegetables.  Oh, you don’t normally marinate the veggies?  No big surprise.  Most people don’t even think about it.  But, if you do, kuddos!  If not, you’re going to want to pay attention to this little tutorial, because this recipe is off the hook!  😉

Shish Kabobs MarinadesIf you’ve had Yoshida’s before, then you know they make a real fine Teriyaki sauce that just melts anything you put in your mouth.  And if you didn’t know, well, you do now.  I like it best with beef and chicken, but in my opinion, it’s better with chicken.  The McCormicks I’m using here is the Mesquite I mentioned.  But on the back of the package it gives a suggestion to mix ketchup and honey with the standard ingredients.  McCormicks is just one of those 98 cent dry rubs you mix with water and oil so the other two ingredients were a no-brainer because I was planning on using the Mesquite on the pork Shish Kabobs.  The Olive Oil marinade I mentioned has several different herbs in it, both dry and fresh.  Just a little something I picked up from my Italian studies.  In fact this marinade is great with bread.  I only recommend you add Balsamic Vinegar to it if you’re going to use this for that; what ever you decide. Just remember to use it for the Vegetables in this recipe.  The tip of the day is Wrights Liquid Smoke.  If you’re not able to grill outside but you still what that Hickory flavor when you are cooking indoors, just add a few drops of this Liquid magic to your marinades and no one will be able to tell the difference, I promise!

 

Olive Oil and Herb Marinade for Shish Kabobs:

1/2 cup Olive Oil
3/4 tsp Salt
3 chopped Garlic Cloves
1 tbsp Italian Seasoning
1 tbsp Oregano
1 tbsp fresh chopped Parsley
1 tbsp fresh chopped Basil
a few shakes of Black Pepper

Mix thoroughly and poor over the cut vegetable chunks before you skew the Shish Kabobs, and marinate for 20 minutes.
