Perfect Barbecue Ribs and Raviolette Salad

I don't fix ribs very often because I had not found a really good way to cook them. My sweet hubby bought some at the store the other day and I told him we could try my brown sugar rub on them. That was all great until I realized that I still needed to figure out how to cook them! So, as I was getting the ribs out of the refrigerator I decided to see if they had any directions on the package, and they did! It said to cook for 2 hours at 300 degrees. I decided to wrap them in foil so we would not loose any of the brown sugar goodness, and Voila! My perfect rib recipe was born!

Perfect Barbecue Ribs

1 rack of ribs
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons smoky paprika
1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper

Mix all together in a small bowl. Lay a sheet of aluminum foil on a cookie sheet and put the ribs on the foil, meaty side up. Spoon the brown sugar mixture in a pile down the center of the ribs and using your hands move it around and pack it onto the top and sides of the ribs. Wrap the foil around the ribs, adding more foil to cover completely. Put in a 300 degree oven for 2 hours.

Some meals just don't need a lot of side dishes! I know it was all my hubby could do to eat some salad in between pigging out on ribs! My family loved this salad, and it was supper easy!

Raviolette Salad

1 package Raviolette
1/4 cup chopped pepporoni
1/4 cup chopped salami
1 can olives, chopped
2 - 3 tablespoons prepared pesto

Cook the Raviolette according to package directions and drain. Add pesto and chill. Before serving add the pepperoni, salami and olives.

Hi Carol, I think strawberry jam would be fine in that tart, it would end up being a mixed berry tart and I am sure it would be delicious! Let me know how it turns out! Or, and this is just an idea, blueberries and orange go together really well so I am thinking orange marmelade or even apricot jam would be swell too!
