Jo's marinade though since BB doesn't like overly spicy foods I cut the chili sauce down to 1 tbl. Then over medium-high heat I quickly browned both sides of the ribs in a tablespoon of canola oil to seal them. I then covered them in the marinade (I saved about a quarter cup for later) and placed them, bone side down, in a baking dish and covered it very tightly with aluminum foil. The point is to steam the ribs, slowly, in their own juices and if they aren't covered tightly enough all that lovely steam is going to escape. I put the dish in the oven at 250 degrees and then waited.
America's Test Kitchen cookbook and made the potato salad from scratch using a recipe I've made and adjusted many a time over the years. Something weird--I'm allergic to mayonnaise but only the commercial buy-it-in-the-store-in-a-jar type stuff. I can eat homemade mayonnaise without problem. However one bite of the store stuff and...well let's just say it isn't pretty.
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp yellow mustard
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tbl vinegar (I use apple cider vinegar)
- 1 cup oil (I used canola but have also used light extra virgin olive oil)
- 1/4 tsp paprika
- 1/4 tsp granulated sugar
This makes about a cup and a half of mayonnaise which is perfect for making a decent sized batch of potato salad (enough for 6 people). However, tonight I halved my own recipe so I didn't end up eating potato salad for the rest of the week. The whole recipe is as follows:
- 2 - 2.5 lbs potatoes
- 1 cup chopped celery
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 6 sliced of cook bacon, crumbled
- 1.5 cups mayonnaise
- 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 2 tbl stone ground mustard
- 2 hardboiled eggs, chopped
- 2 tbl sugar
- 1 tbl garlic
- salt and pepper to taste
I pulled the ribs out of the pan and as you can see from the picture, the meat had pulled back from the bones and was so tender that because I was a bit careless in lifting the ribs from the pan, you can see how they started falling apart.
Oh boy, let me tell you they were GOOD. I love the whole salty/sweet combination of the soy and sugar. Only wish I could've used a bit more of the chili sauce because I could tell that just a bit more bite (there was a bit of the chili flavor but none of the heat) they would've been out of this world. As was, my daughter informed me it was "De. Lih. SHIS!" and I was rather moany groany ate too much myself for a couple hours later.
