Summer is here and you can find meat on sale. The "other" white meat that is the most affordable is pork. I bought a family pack of pork ribs and used on side of ribs for Lentil Stew dinner and froze the other side of ribs until tonight. I love Sundays in the kitchen to make a gourmet dinner . The family pack of ribs were under $10.
Barbeque Pork Ribs Recipe
Marinate pork ribs with barbeque sauce and let it sit for at least 30 mins (longer the better). Then place in a 350 degree oven and cook for 1 hour. Turn halfway through.
Roasted Carrots Recipe
The recipe came from the Food Network.
Cut up carrots diagonally and toss with olive oil, pepper, salt, parsley and dill. Wait until the ribs are halfway cooked and then toss in the baking sheet of carrots to roast for about 20 minutes. You can take both out at the same time.
Kale, Pepper, Tomato Side Dish Recipe
This dish is actually from Oxygen Women's Fitness Slimming Soba Salad. I decided take the ingredients but not include the soba noodles for a nice side dish.
Cut up kale and saute on medium heat. Add cut up yellow/orange pepper, juice from 1/2 lemon and saute for 5 more minutes. Then add 1 chopped tomato and saute til tender. Season with salt and pepper. Kale and lemon are a winning combination.
Boil potatoes, mash with butter and sour cream or milk or cream cheese. Optional to add cheddar cheese.
Place barbeque pork ribs on top of the mashed potatoes. Put the roasted carrots and kale side dish beside the potatoes and pork for a colourful and healthy gourmet dinner on a budget.
