Hunk of Meat Monday

HunK Pictures, Images and Photos

Oh wait. Wrong kind of hunk. Though if he makes your Monday a little brighter, I won't judge.

Hunk of Meat Mondays

What I meant to share was an entry for a blog hop called Hunk of Meat Mondays. It's hosted by a fellow Indiana blogger. (I just saw on her site that they have a beagle. They live on a farm. Maybe they'd want a barnyard beagle-basset dog, too? But that's another post...)

Anyway, she (wish I could remember her first name. I've met her IRL once, but her name escapes me. It's probably something easy, like Amy) posted a yummy recipe for tetrazzini today. Well, mostly she posted it. All the ingredients and quantities, etc. But she didn't exactly spell out all the steps. She must be a good cook, because good cooks can get away with stuff like. BadLess experienced cooks like myself need step by step instruction.

Being  a badless experienced cook myself, I can't really contribute much to her Hunk of Meat Mondays. But, I do have a hunk of meat that I have no idea what to do with. This is it:

Three pounds of boneless beef ribs

I have no idea what I was doing buying fancy meat like that. Most of the meat that makes its way into this house is deli sliced, ground or flash-frozen. Apparently, I was feeling culinarily adventurous -- or maybe I was lulled into purchasing it by a big "Save $3 NOW" sticker on the package. 

However it got into the house, it's here and I have to use it.

I tried looking up a few recipes, but they included things like "liquid smoke" and I got scared off. Mike says I should just drop 'em in a crockpot, dump some barbecue sauce over it and eat whatever comes out. I'm not so sure. 

So, I hope this is not a violation of Hunk of Meat Monday, but I thought I'd ask if anyone out there has a tested and approved for use by a cook with good intentions but a bad track record. 

Let's hear it.

Ok I KNOW Miss Leah has a recipe for ribs that you can use somewhere in her arsenal! Hang in there, and we will help you out. Putting them in the crock pot is a great idea though.

Welcome to our Real Farmwives of America fun! It's not exclusive, but we do love to cook and share giggles along with some down on the farm stuff!

I have a recipe for homemade teriyaki sauce on my blog. Marinate them in that and grill them up! Either in a real grill or on the stove. Boneless ribs are so great for quick meals like that. Serve with brown rice and mixed veggies and enjoy :).

Now ribs are something I don't know how to cook! Sorry!!!

And yes Lana is right the sweet gals name is Leah! Probably Lana will pass this along to the girls, and i am sure they can give you some great idea's about what to do with the hunk! ;-)

I gotta go with the crock pot and BBQ sauce suggestion. I'm not a fancy cook by any stretch so I'd cook them to just enjoy the beefiness. I guess you could grill them, too. Maybe season with a brown sugar and paprika rub? Or crock pot with a can of root beer dumped in. Or marinate in apple cider and then bake.

Amy, your husband is right drop them in the crock pot. I would poor a beer over top and maybe some seasoned salt and let them slow cook. I must admit liquid smoke isn't as scary as it sounds. It is my favorite thing to add to crock pot meat. That and tabasco. You can never have enough tobasco. But I am telling you. Beer and seasoned salt and you will be good. Add some pepper if you want to live dangerously. P.S. I don't know why your picture wouldn't work. Strange...
