Easy Baby Back Ribs, Honey Roasted Red Potatoes and Lemon Glazed Carrots

WOWEEEEEEEE!!  What a finger-lickin' good meal!  We had dinner guests over last night and every single one of them were impressed with these ribs.  Best of all, they were SOOOO easy!  They were so juicy and tender and ready to fall off the bone. 

The honey-roasted potatoes is a recipe I got from online.  It's really delicious, but I modify the way I cook them a bit to crisp them up!

The carrots, just as good as last time!  I won't post the recipe again, but you can find it under "Tropical Pork."

We had a wonderful family meal last night and I think just about everyone had second helpings!  I can't wait to make these ribs again!

P.S.  Those of you with a Meijer around you, pork loin and loin back ribs are one sale, so go take advantage while you can!!!!  The sale probably ends this Saturday, July 24, 2010.

Baby Back Ribs, Honey Roasted Red Potatoes and Lemon Glazed Carrots

Baby Back Rib Ingredients:
(I'm going to just use rough estimates here, depending on how many lbs. of ribs you want to cook! )
Pork Loin Back Ribs (I used roughly 9 lbs.)
BBQ Sauce (we used Sweet Baby Rays Regular BBQ Sauce and used almost the full bottle.  Wish I had used a bit more)
BBQ Rub (We used Billy Bones BBQ Rub)
(To make your own, mix sugar, salt, chili pepper, garlic and paprika)

Baby Back Rib Directions:

Depending on how many lbs. of ribs you're working with and the size of your Crock Pot, cut your ribs accordingly.  I cut my racks into fourths.
Rub your ribs on both sides and then back in a 400 degree oven for 15 mins on each side.  This will bake off some of the fat and it seals in the yummy rub!
 Next, brush the side of the ribs facing up and all the edges with BBQ sauce.  Be generous.  
Then, place your ribs into the liner sauced side down.  Brush the other side with sauce.  Continue this process until all your ribs are into the liner.
Doesn't that look delicious?!!  Now, cook on LOW for 6-8 hours.  Enjoy!

Honey Roasted Red Potatoes Ingredients:
1 lb. red potatoes, cut into small pieces
2 Tbsp. diced onion
2 Tbsp. butter
3 Tbsp. honey 
1 tsp. dry mustard
salt and pepper to taste

Grease a baking sheet and spread out your potatoes.  Sprinkle with the diced onion.

Melt the butter, then add 1 Tbsp. honey, dry mustard and salt and pepper and mix.  Keep the other 2 Tbsp of honey aside.

Pour your mixture over the potatoes.  Drizzle remaining honey over the potatoes.

Bake in 325 degree oven for about 35 minutes or until tender.  Once tender, leave the potatoes in the oven under the broiler for 5-10 minutes, or until brown and slightly crispy on top.  Yum!!!  Enjoy!

Here's what our meal looked like on the table last night!
