Okay guys, let’s discuss my diet quick. A few years ago I decided to try a vegan diet. I did well for a few months but I didn’t quite understand all that I know now. I felt my weakest when I went vegan, so I decided to try a vegetarian diet. Cheese and me are best friends; like who can give up cheese, right? Turns out dairy and me are enemies. After awhile I switched my diet to cutting out red meats, and limiting my dairy. I felt the best I have in years. Throughout the years I have known Sawyer, I have slowly started to eat beef again, and I eat some cheeses.
Starting with dinner tonight. Now that the weather is nicer Sawyer is obsessed again with smoking things, which is fine for me, because it’s less that I have to do in the kitchen. So tonight I was thinking we would try Korean BBQ Pork Ribs. Last night, we marinaded the pork ribs in scallions, garlic, red pepper flakes, brown sugar, toasted sesame oil, and soy sauce.
You guys, LOOK AT THESE SWEET BABIES.
This marinade was without a doubt the best one I’ve created. The way the crust formed on these ribs in the smoker was amazing. My mouth is watering all over again just thinking about it.
When I was thinking of ways to serve these I was torn between rice noodles, or rice. Sawyer suggested rice. I new that with these I was going to have zoodles (zucchini noodles if you weren’t sure) and carrot ribbons, but I didn’t know what else. I had some sweet potatoes I had just roasted off for Delilah (our dog is spoiled) and I thought I’d take some of those and cut them up and we could eat them with it. I also had some more scallions, jalapenos and some leftover marinade that I cooked down into a sweet glaze.
AND THE FINAL PRODUCT…
Okay, so it was a little more spicy then what I preferred, but my husband eats hot sauce on anything. Would I make this again, yes, I would probably leave out the red pepper flakes though.
On a more serious note, I do plan on creating a ebook of some of my favorite recipes and have that available for all of you soon!
I hope you enjoy this!
