Week 11 – 2011

This week finds a great slate of games for Sunday with our Pats playing on Monday. Since KC is coming to town we’re going to enoy slow cooked beef ribs and on Monday a special baked apple. Read on and see how we’re going to enjoy our sunday.

Ribs
4 beef ribs with a good layer of fat on them – sometimes found as short ribs, our preference is full sized beef ribs
dried cayenne
BBQ sauce – we’re going for a sweet and hot effect so we’re going to go with simple thick kraft hickory smoked sauce.

Rub ribs liberally with cayenne. Wrap each rib in tin foil and place on a tray fat side up. Cook for 5 hours at 250 degrees. On a warmed grill set for a medium heat, place ribs on grill, slather with sauce and cook for 16 minutes, 8 minutes each side.

Sides
Mashed potatoes – 4 red potatoes cubed, boiled and unpeeled. 1/4 teaspoon of garlic, 1 jalepeno diced in a food processor real small, 2 tablespoons butter and a dash of milk. Blend till smooth with a blender.
Mexican corn – a quick and easy warm up dish. We get ours in the ethnic food aisle at the grocery store. If this was summer we’d go with fresh BBQ’d corn on the cob but simple is sometimes great too.

We’ll enjoy our creation with a Route 6 ESB and for the late game we’ll be enjoying a Hooksett ale.

Monday’s Game – Baked Apples

Baked Apple
Tart apples work better than sweeter varieties unless you prefer a sweet apple pie minus the pie flavor.

1 apple per person.
Brown Sugar
Butter
Cinnammon

Core the apple and place in a deep baking dish. Pack core with brown sugar leaving about a 1/4 inch of space from the top of the apple. put a topping of butter over the brown sugar. liberally sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake for 20 minutes at 350.

We’ll be enjoying our baked apple with a Tripel.

Two days of football, fine food and great beer! Hope you enjoy too. Cheers
