Spicy Marinated Ribs
I started cooking all of our meat like crazy this morning, just in case we lost power for a few days. I would HATE to lose all of our meat if we have a power outage. But now the hurricane has weakened to a tropical storm, and now it looks like the worst danger is flooding, so living on top of a high hill AND on the sixth floor, we're not looking to be in trouble there.
But we're still stuck inside, so I'm (slow!!) cooking away.
These ribs had a great lemony-spicy kick to them. Will and I really enjoyed them as we stared out the window and placed bets on when the tree outside would snap in half. (It's still standing...)
- 6 qt. crockpot
- 1 jalapeno, minced
- juice of one lemon
- 1/8 t black pepper
- 1/4 t cumin
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- Slab 'o ribs, cut to fit in your crockpot (I used pork but you can use beef or lamb... whatever strikes your fancy)
The Process: (serves 2 adults with a bit of leftovers)
Mix the first six ingredients together.
Plop the ribs in the crock, and dump the mixture over them, covering as best as you can.
Cook on low for 6-8 hours. (I cooked mine on high for two hours, then on low for two more, just to make sure they were cooked before early afternoon when a possible power outage might have happened...)
Hope everyone is safe and dry and INDOORS! :-)
