In Vancouver there is no shortage of any ethnic groups and I am proud to say that I have more than one Portugese friend. Thankfully they are all of the female variety.

From the late '70s, i recall someone who figured diet margarine was so more healthy, that she put several times as much on her sandwiches (no kidding)

julia child used to say that you could fix any recipe with either butter or white wine.

[edit] we have beaucoup of Portuguese restaurants in Newark, NJ.

Default Ribs?

Or fix any recipe with ...


BACON!


Gonna make some ribs tonight, any good rib recipes out there?


They're pork back ribs (baby?) and I don't have a smoker or anything.

Last time I scored the membrane, sprinkled salt and pepper and slathered in lots of regular mustard (condiment not powder). Wrapped them tight in aluminum foil then baked them for ~2 hours at ~325 in a toaster oven (to save electricity) meat side down (to keep the meat moist) and then finished them with some more mustard on the BBQ for ~20 min to get the nice char and grill marks. Wife loved them!

What's the verdict on the back membrane: leave it, score it or remove it?

Cheers,
Jeff

Hi Jeff,

Back ribs are not bad. We had them last night. They are a fast cook. All I do is yes, remove the silverskin with a butter knife and a paper towel and just pull it off. Then I cut off the excess fat and rub it with liquid smoke and then a meat rub. Leave for a few minutes and pop them in the oven at 500 on a rack, face down for a few minutes. Turn the heat down to about 300 and turn them face up after about 30 minutes. Leave for another 20 and then sauce them for the last 40. You have to do it once or twice to get things right as every oven is different.

Spare ribs OTOH are a different story. Those are made for the smoker, they take a lot longer but are worth the effort. You can't use back ribs that way, or at least I haven't had much luck. The best I can do for back ribs is the method above but if you are adventuresome you can drench them in liquid smoke then brine them for two days (salt and sugar) before putting them in the dehydrator for about 18 - 24 hours at 165F then place them in a steamer to warm up when you are ready.

- to taste chili powder or other spicy sauce

1.put the Vineyard d' Garlicthe over the ribs and pour the red wine. Leave to rest the marinade approximately 2 hours.

2. Heat the butter and aloure therein the ribs on both sides. Go by adding a little liquid from marinating.

3. Once fried, remove them and add to the sauce the pickles cut into tiny pieces very small and the olives. Sprinkle with the piri-piri or other spicy sauce to taste. Let the mixture thicken.

4. Serve the ribs irrigated with the sauce and accompanied with mashed potatoes or fries.

Analog was staffed in the 60's from our huge Portugese community, Brazil, Azores, Portugal, etc. I have many Portugese friends too.

We used to drive to the Illinois state line to buy colored oleo since the dairy lobby made colored oleo illegal in the state of Wisconsin. My grandmother OTOH made liberal use of the 70 cent* spread.

* For those that might not know margarine was also pushed on price.
