Tennessee Baked Beans

Tennessee Baked Beans

1 diced green pepper

1 diced onion

3 tbsp minced garlic (I use on in olive oil)

2 lbs ground beef (I use a leaner for less fat)

Place in frying and brown hamburger while sauteing the vegetables.  Cover partially then add

16 oz can of pork and beans

1 24 oz bottle of ketchup

1 21 oz bottle of “Honey” Barbecue Sauce (It does make a difference)

Stir and simmer.

(The irony of this is that I originally came to Bristol TN for a wedding and got the recipe which I took back to New York State and made for a Benefit that I was supposed to cook for.  This made a great size batch as I doubled it and it was all gone in no time…people were eating it like a chili.  Now I live in Tennessee…)

Oven BBQ Short Ribs


ribs

My version at $ 2.39 per pound keeps us on our budget

I can always tell what dishes I have made that my hubby has really enjoyed, as he shows up with the ingredients to those dishes above and beyond the grocery list that I have sent with him on days that I can’t go on the Military Base at Ft. Campbell, KY.

Since I had to stay and meet with prospective vendors for an upcoming fundraiser in our area he went shopping with my list.

This huge rack of beef short ribs is what the extra item was today.  Last time that I made them, he insisted that he was going to hate them because that is a grilling food.

** To explain, my hubby is not one of those “Grilling hubby’s” that you see on television.  If I can’t be out there to guard the food it resembles charcoal when he brings it back into the house.  **

Now if our food looked like these pictures it would be wonderful, However…

See the smoke in this picture… well I can still see the food so this is minor compared to our grill…thank goodness he does turn it down on low but the smoke is still thick…

To make a long blog short I simply cut the ribs and place them in my roaster pan and cover them with a mixture of Slow Simmering Barbecue sauce (Brand I used today was Kraft) and mix it with fresh honey.  I turn the ribs every 15 minutes and bake them on 325 F oven for about 2 hours.  The ribs are well coated in the mixture so they will not be the least bit dry.

He is drooling just anticipating these ribs today out of the oven …

Happy Cooking…
