Ribs and Sauce


Ribs & Sauce — a perfect relationship

Everyone has a favorite way to serve ribs. Some like it dry with just a rub, others will dip dry ribs and wet them down with a vinegary sauce; or slather them up with a sugary sticky sauce right before coming off the grill. I'm often asked how I like my ribs the best. Really, I like them both ways, it just depends on what mood I'm in. It's definitely going to be a sticky rib weekend!


Ribs cannot be prepared in a hurry, so toss a burger on a separate hot grill while you wait. How-to prepare the Ribs.

For Making Ribs with Sticky Sauce:

15 minutes prior to removing the slow cooked ribs, brush ribs lightly with a little sauce to moisten and add flavor. Remove, cut and serve ribs as is or serve extra sauce on side for pouring over ribs.

Not so sure how well this will go over as a Vatlentine's Day present - but it could be accompanied by grilled steaks for two, a bottle of wine, candlelight + chocolates.

Circa 1932, New York's own Gold's Pure Food Products Horseradish is an important staple + condiment to have in the refrigerator. It can jazz up dressings, sauces and put a nice spin on a serving of mashed potatoes. Also it's great if you are committed to limiting the amount of butter to your meal portions. Horseradish also happens to be good for you too; it's fat free and less than 5 calories per tablespoon. If you don't have fresh horseradish on hand, the prepared version of grated horseradish is a great alternative.
