Barbecue Country Style Pork Ribs and Rice

Is anyone else enjoying warmer weather? I love it! I’m already dreaming of relaxing in the pool or going to the beach and feeling the sand between my toes! Then, when school gets out, I can stay home with the kids every day and feel like I’m a stay-at-home-mom for a little while! I can’t wait!

This recipe is great for a lazy day when you want a good meal, but don’t feel like slaving in the kitchen. It’s a crock pot recipe, but requires some boiling first, so it’s not really something you can prepare on a workday.

Boiling these country style ribs first makes them so tender! Plus, you are left with a wonderfully seasoned broth for rice. Add some veggies, and you’re done!

Barbecue Country Style Ribs

6-8 Country Style Ribs
8 cups water (approximately – I usually just make sure the ribs are covered)
1 bottle of barbecue sauce
½ cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons Creole seasoning

1. In large pot, bring water to boil. Add ribs, reduce heat to medium, and boil for about one hour.
2. Remove ribs from water. Place ribs in crock pot.
3. Add barbecue sauce, brown sugar, and Creole seasoning.
4. Cook for 3 hours on high setting or 6 hours on low setting.

Pork Seasoned Rice

4 cups broth left over from above recipe
2 cups white rice
1 chicken bouillon cube
2 teaspoons Creole seasoning

1. Bring broth to a boil. Add bouillon cube.
2. Once bouillon cube is dissolved, add rice and reduce heat to medium-low.
3. Boil for 20-30 minutes or until rice is done and all juice is absorbed.
