Yukon Jack Bone Dust Beef Ribs
Here is the rather long recipe but it is really good

4 lbs beef spare ribs or short ribs can be used

Trim fat from ribs. Cut into 1, 2, or 3 rib portions. Place ribs in a 6 qt Dutch oven.

Add enough water to cover ribs. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, about 1-1/2 hours or until tender.

Drain ribs; let stand until cool enough to handle then put on the rub.
While waiting make sauce:

1 tbsp. olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
3 tbsp. finely chopped onion
3 fresh jalapeño chilis, finely chopped
1/4 cup honey
1 cup chicken broth
1/3 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup Yukon Jack
1 tsp. powdered ginger
1 tsp. dry mustard
1 tsp. mustard seeds
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tbsp. cornstarch
1 tbsp. cold water
Salt as desired

to make the Sauce:
In a med saucepan, heat oil over med-high heat. Add garlic, onion and jalapeño peppers; cook for 2 – 3 min or until tender. Stir in honey, broth, vinegar, Y. Jack , ginger, dry mustard, mustard seeds, black pepper and cayenne pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat to low. Simmer, covered, for 10 min. Stir together cornstarch and cold water; add to mixture in pan. Cook and stir until slightly thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 2 min more. Season to taste with salt. Remove from heat.

The spice rub:
4 tsp. paprika
2 tsp. chili powder
1-1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground coriander
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. curry powder
1 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. dried basil, crushed
1/2 tsp. dried thyme, crushed
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper

In a small bowl, combine all rub ingredients

then when the ribs come out of the dutch oven you rub all over the meat and send them off to the grill.

Place ribs, bone sides down on the rack of the grill directly over med coals.

Brush with some of the sauce, grill for 10-15 min. (mine were done in 10) or until ribs are heated through and glazed with sauce.

To serve, reheat remaining sauce until bubbly; serve with ribs.

Makes 4 – 6 servings

Of course so it fits the pan

Comment by Aggie on February 8, 2019 at 10:07am

One day a little girl was watching her mom make a roast beef. She cut off the ends, wrapped it in string, seasoned it and set it in the roasting pan.
The little girl asked her mom why she cut off the ends of the roast. Mom replied, after some thought, that it was the way that her mother had done it.
That night grandma came to dinner and the little girl and her mom went to her and asked why she had cut the end off of the roast before cooking. After some thought grandma replied, that was the way her mother had done it.
Now great grandmother was quite old and in a nursing home. But the little girl went with her mom and grandma to see her and again asked the question.
Grandma looked at them a bit annoyed and said, "So it would fit in the pan, of course."

Layla, do you date your freezer food? 

Comment by Layla on February 4, 2019 at 5:50am

We have made some changes in how we get our food and use our food.

first involves cost. We are going to find ways to lower the bill without lowering food quality.

second our freezer is too full. We are gonna try too use that stuff up before adding more to the top and forgetting what is at the bottom.

third we are gonna make something "different" once a week. It will not be exotic or weird just different to our norm.

Those are our changes. I look forward to any ideas you have on how to make these better/easier.

I am back. I (my daughter and I) have been creating my new internet profile for the last couple of weeks. It turned out to be a very complicated process.

For more online security, I have all new emails, new more secure password and even new website questions with answers unrelated to the question so no personal information can be gleaned from there.

This doesn't affect anything here. we can get back to what ever you feel like sharing.
