We love food, and this post marks the beginning of how we'll show it. Once every two weeks (or more) we'll highlight a favorite food, giving us a chance to share some great recipes as well as showcase some amazing eateries. Below are two different favorites: barbecued beef ribs and potato skins.
Beef ribs can be found in most grocery stores with the refrigerated meats. I begin with a dry rub that includes brown sugar, dill, garlic and more. Then I stand the ribs up in a slow cooker with about an inch of water at the bottom. Then I wait six or more hours... When they're ready I have two options: pull the meat off the bone or BBQ them and throw them in the oven for twenty minutes at 400˚. Enjoy!
Potato skins are simple! Begin with a bag of potatoes, clean them and halve them. Bake them for two to three hours at 300˚. When they're soft and cool, scoop out the center to make "boats". Next, clean and dice your favorite vegetables. We chose bell pepper, onion, tomato, broccoli and... bacon! Start filling the potato skins with your selections, cover them all with cheese and bake them for twenty to thirty minutes at 350˚. Buon appetito!
