Let's face it. Summer is a time for fun, and some parents don't want to stay in a hot house all day and cook, while some just don't have the time or energy. This is the kind of meal that you just pop in the slow cooker and do whatever you and your family have to do for 6-8 hours. Then just put it in some lettuce wraps and eat! It's easy, fuss-free, and I think it tastes great.
This is an easy slow cooker recipe for pork and beans.
This is tomato sauce at its finest. Unlike most tomato sauce where there are many spices, this tomato sauce is all about the rich taste of the tomatoes.
Easy, feeds a crowd. I make this all the time for the guys at work. I watch for the full loins to go on sale. After feeding the crew at work (12- 15 people) I still have leftovers to bring back home. You can add the bbq sauce into the meet after it is cooked, or have it on the side. Great both ways. Serve on buns and enjoy.
A meaty and very tasty sauce that only gets better the longer it simmers. Enjoyed with almost any pasta, this has been a really old family favorite.
It will let your friends from Hawaii think you dug a pit in your backyard. You don't have to add cabbage if you don't want to.
I take my pork butt rub recipe and add Greek flavors for my wife who was born there. The melt in your mouth pork with the yogurt dressing is always a big hit. This is a great finger food for summer parties. Serve with cold beer and ouzo. Opa!
Good old Mexican Tamales, just the way my great grandmother use to make. Serve and enjoy a piece of Mexico. Allow all leftovers to cool down completely and then refrigerate.
These are fall-off-the-bone ribs and simple to make. The secret is low heat (250 degrees F) and time (3 hours). Either in the oven or on the BBQ.
I have taken many chili recipes and played with them over time and have come with this one that everyone loves. Optional suggestion: Serve over Fritos and top with Cheddar cheese.
An easy recipe with great honest flavor that lends itself to personal tweaking. Perfect on a gas grill. My favorite choice for BBQ sauce is a half & half mix of Sweet Baby Ray's(R) and Stubb's Original(R). Italian dressing may also be halved with the vinegar as desired. Red wine vinegar is the key, though. This a great easy meal for two people. Adjust recipe as needed for more--one of those recipes that you can't go wrong with.
Here's a quick and easy way to prepare barbecue ribs without all the mess of preparation and cleanup. The nice part is that you can prepare in the morning and the ribs will be ready when you come home from work in the evening. Serve on rolls or slice and serve with side dishes.
These stuffed pork chops are moist and tasty. Quick and easy.
Country style ribs baked in lemon juice for 1 1/2 hours @ 450 degrees, then baked 1 1/2 hours @ 350 degrees in homemade sweet and sour barbeque sauce with pineapple tidbits, served over rice.
1 slab of ribs per person may sound like a lot, but if you have leftovers, you will be really happy! Awesome!
Start your favorite wood chips soaking for this meatloaf on the grill. A sweet and tangy apple cider vinegar glaze keeps this one moist.
Let the taste of Brazil simmer in your home all day. When you're ready, spoon out this hot, hearty stew and count down the days till Festival.
If you have time, the right tools and supplies, you can make anything. A bookcase, a crib, or even fresh sausage.
I worked this recipe out after eating these delicious ribs at Z Grille in St Petersburg, FL. Turns out Dr Pepper makes a great sauce for ribs. Try to find the Dr Pepper that is made with real sugar for best results. Also you can forgo the frying step, and finish them off on the grill but they will not be crispy.
This is easy to make, but impresses everyone. I think it's using words like "crusted" and properly pronouncing "chipotle" that does it. That, and it tastes delicious.
