BBQ'd Pork Country Ribs

Pork Country Style Rib Dinner

Pork is without a doubt my favorite BBQ meat. Spare ribs are my favorite. But running a close second are Pork Country Ribs. 

Pork Country Ribs are not true ribs. They are cut from the front end of the baby backs at the shoulder. They typically will have part of the shoulder blade bone in them. But they are short at around 5 to 6 inches long and about 1 1/2 inches square. They are meaty and grill fantastically. They are also excellent for low and slow cooking. But I also like them because they are about a 30 min. grill. So if you are in a hurry and want to chow on some great "ribs", this is the cut for you. Fat, Juicy and Tasty. A great "Triple Threat".

Well, my wife Lupe had a long day at work. I asked her if she was up for some country ribs. She said she was definitely game. So I figured I would grill the ribs, heat up some fresh, garden picked long green beans in butter and serve with a little bit of butter/herb mashed potatoes.

Long beans (asparagus) harvested from our garden. Heated in butter with a little salt and pepper.

Well about 30 minutes later, dinner was served.

Though this was a very simple menu, it was very tasty and quick to put on the table. We were more than satisfied.

Until next time.
