It’s all in the sauce!

23 Aug

So I’m counting down the last days of summer and thinking of all of the last minute recipes that I can try before it is time to put the grill away. A couple of weeks ago I tried a recipe that I found for Carolina Barbecued Ribs. I have to tell you that the sauce was so simple, but yet so amazing, so much so that I had to pass it along to my Simply Studded family. This recipe will employ almost all of your taste buds. From the initial marinade you will taste hints of tanginess from the white vinegar and crushed red pepper flakes. And the sauce will give you notes of sweet with a subtle pop of spicy that will lead you to believe that a Carolina festival is happening in your mouth.

 

Carolina Barbecued Ribs

Carolina Barbecued Ribs…
Salt and Pepper     To Taste
Crushed Red Pepper Flakes     1 Tbsp
Pork Back Ribs (3-4 lb.)     2
White Vinegar     1 pt

Sauce

Onion, chopped     5 oz
Garlic Cloves     3
Green Bell Pepper, chopped     4 oz
Plum Tomatoes, canned     1 pt
Red Devil Hot Sauce     8 oz
Brown Sugar     10 oz
Lemon Juice     2 oz

Combine the salt and pepper and red pepper flakes. Rub this mixture over both sides of the ribs, coating them well. Place the ribs in a nonreactive pan and add the vinegar. Cover and refrigerate for several hours or overnight. Uncover the ribs and turn presentation side down and bake in a 375 oven for 1 ½ hours.

Meanwhile, prepare the sauce by pureeing the onions, garlic, green pepper and tomatoes in a food processor or blender. Pour this mixture into a nonreactive saucepan and add the remaining sauce ingredients. Simmer the sauce over low heat until it thickens, approx. 15-20 minutes.

Remove the ribs from the liquid and place on the grill presentation side up. Brush the ribs with sauce and grill to desired doneness. Additional sauce can be served on the side.

BEERy Tender…

9 Aug

These summer days can be really brutal in the kitchen even if your home is air conditioned. There is nothing like battling in an even hotter kitchen in the summer time in the name of good grub. This week’s recipe calls for very little prep work, and can even be finished outdoors. So lets head to the grill to make this tasty beer marinated masterpiece…

Beer Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Pork Tenderloins 3: 14oz pieces

Marinade
Light Soy Sauce 4oz
Beer (Room Temp) 12oz
Light Brown Sugar 2oz
Fresh Ginger (Grated) 1 ½ Tbsp

Clean the tenderloins removing all visible fat and silverskin. Combine the marinade ingredients, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Place the tenderloins in a large bowl and cover with the marinade. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 2-6 hours. Remove the tenderloin from the marinade and grill over medium-hot coals, turning as needed. Allow the cooked tenderloins to rest for 5 minutes, then slice thinly on the bias.

Here are some suggested sides for your tenderloin…
