Recipe ~Friday ๐Ÿฅ˜ Country Style Ribs ‘n Beer-with a twistย 

Hello my lovely friends  ๐Ÿ’• Thanks for peeking in ๐Ÿค—

Maybe you remember the recipe for Country Style Ribs ‘n Beer I shared a while ago. Did you cook the ribs? I hope you liked it. ๐Ÿ˜€

Today I have a variation to share with you. It was a spontaneous add-on last night…let me tell you how that came about. 

See, once in a while hubby and I like to go to the casino. ๐Ÿ˜Ž He likes to smoke his cigar, away from the cold/heat/wind, and I’m addicted to their cappuccino. ๐Ÿ˜ Anyway – usually I prep dinner, we eat when he comes home, and off we go. Well, yesterday he came home at 4:30 – a bit too early for dinner. So I decided to throw the (alread cooked) ribs into the Crockpot. Easy peasy! โ˜บ๏ธ Only problem….there wasn’t enough liquid in the pan. Out of broth,  I dove into the pantry and came up with a jar of ‘Chipotle & Lime’ Salsa. Hmmm…. maybe! ๐Ÿค”I enjoy a little ‘tastebud’ adventure….so I added that and 1/3 cup of water….oh my! That is awesome!!! ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿป

We will try different Salsas – but from here on out Ribs will always have Beer & Salsa in it! ๐Ÿ˜

Is your mouth watering yet? ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Will you have ribs for dinner? I sure hope you enjoy them! 

Have a wonderful day! ๐Ÿค— See you next time 

Until then ๐Ÿ’•

Recipe Friday ~ ‘Country Style Ribs’n Beer

Hello my lovely friends ~ it’s Friday…that means (at least in this house) cook once, eat 2, 3 times!
*Before you start, just one word of advice….

Bahahahaha ๐Ÿ˜‚….nah, didn’t happen!

Everything went well, so tonight we’re having ‘Country Style Ribs ‘n Beer’
(The beer comes in before the cooking – so it is safe for the kiddos!)

Here’s what you need

~2 pounds Country Style Ribs
~seasoning (I use Steak seasoning)
~1 bunch green onions (cut in 1/2″ pieces)
~ 12 oz. Beer
~Coconut Oil (or whichever one you normally use)

1. Start by rinsing and seasoning the ribs (I found that in a lot of seasoning mixes the sodium content is real high, so I only season one side of the meat!)

2. Heat the oil in a large pan, and add the meat (beware of grease spatters) ๐Ÿ˜ณ

3. Brown the meat on both sides…

…and add half of the green onion.

4. Add the beer, cover, and turn down the heat to low.

5. Simmer for 1 – 1 1/2 hours, turning the meat once half way through.
or spoon everything into a crock-pot, and cook on low 3 – 4 hrs.

While the meat is cooking, and filling your house with the most delicious smells, you can take a little break  ๐Ÿ˜Ž and then prepare the side dishes.

Recently I discovered frozen, diced Butternut Squash….eeeek! ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿป Needless to say, we’re now having a lot more squash for dinner than in the past!

Defrost the squash in the fridge overnight (can be done in the cooking dish),
season it with pepper, add butter, and cook it at 350ยฐ for 40 minutes. Done! Easy-Peasy!

So easy – yet delicious….and enough for tonight and tomorrow! ๐Ÿ˜

Garnish with the rest of the green onion, and it’s time to eat…
