Tender Spareribs Recipe w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Italian Beans

Dinner Tonight: Tender Spareribs Recipe w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Italian Beans

Snow Flurries outside this morning. Cleared up by late afternoon, still a cold day out though. Had a Simple Truth Breakfast Sandwich for Breakfast. I had to go back to Kroger, I had forgot a couple of items for Mom. Back home not a lot going on, just did a couple things around the house and then kicked back and did some reading. For dinner tonight I prepared a Tender Spareribs Recipe w/ Mashed Potatoes and Cut Italian Beans.

Tried a new recipe for dinner tonight, Tender Spareribs Recipe. I came across this recipe on a Taste Of Home recipe email. I love the recipes on the Taste of Home website, ( I can always find any recipe I need. Anyway back to the recipe, I'll
need the following to prepare the dish;  4 pounds pork spareribs (cut into serving-size pieces), 1/4 cup Low sodium soy sauce, 1/4 cup prepared mustard, 1/4 cup molasses, 3 tablespoons cider vinegar, 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, and 1 to 2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce. That's a fantastic combination of ingredients for the sauce! As I try to do with all recipes I used reduced calorie or low sodium ingredients when I can; La Choy Low Sodium Soy Sauce. I used the Kikkoman Low Sodium Soy Sauce, French's Yellow Mustard, GrandMa's Molasses, Heinz Cider Vinegar, Worcestershire Sauce, and Frank's Hot sauce. The original recipe and web link are at the end of the post.

To prepare the dish I started by cutting the Spare Ribs into serving size pieces. I purchased the Spare Ribs at Meijer yesterday. I then lined my Crock Pot with a liner. I always use a liner anytime I use my Crock Pot. I then placed ribs into the Crock Pot . I combined the remaining ingredients; poured over ribs. Cover and cooked on low for 6 hours. By 1:00 this afternoon the aroma of the Spare Ribs was incredible!

At the end of 6 hours I pulled the Ribs out of the Crock Pot and they were so tender they were falling apart. The Sauce gave the Ribs incredible flavor, this combination of ingredients would go great with any of your Pork Dishes! * Near the end of the cooking time the Crock Pot passed away. I had to finish cooking the Ribs in an oven at 425 degrees.

For one side dish I prepared some Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes, which I just microwaved and serve. Just can't beat these Mashed Potatoes. Then I also opened up a can of Allens Cut Italian Beans. I guess this our new favorite Bean. I love Green Beans but these Beans are hard to beat! I also reheated some leftover Pillsbury Italian loaf Bread . One fantastic dinner tonight! For dessert later a small cup of Del Monte No Sugar Peach Chunks.
