Barbecue Pork Ribs

My daughter loves ribs…it is by far her favourite meal.  The problem is I have never been the best rib cooker.  So much so that our families favourite ribs are from Costco.

I thought I would give them one last try when I found some ribs on sale at the grocery store.  Thankfully I did something right this time because they were delicious.

Maybe it was the homemade spice rub and homemade barbecue sauce I made to go along with it, but whatever it was they have become our new family favourite.

Barbecue Pork Ribs

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Spread rib rub evenly on racks of ribs.
  3. Wrap each rack individually in double layer of aluminum foil with 1 Tbsp of water in each.
  4. Bake in oven for 2 hrs.
  5. When cooked fully, toss evenly with barbecue sauce and grill for 5-10mins.

Homemade Taco Seasoning

I am sure every Mama in this world has tacos on their rotating meal plan.  I know that it is a staple in our house.  Quick, easy and everyone in the house loves them.  They are great for leftovers in the kids lunches to make our life easier in the morning too!  A win-win!!

For a while I would buy the packages of taco mix, but then I came to my senses.  The store bought taco seasoning is full of fillers and so much sodium you will wonder why your toes are the size of sausages afterwards.

For the last few years I have been making my own homemade recipe instead.  Its flavour is amazing and it is half the price.  The beauty is you know exactly what is in the seasoning and you get all the benefits from the individual spices too

Make up a batch and store in an airtight glass container in the pantry and use on beef, chicken, and jackfruit.

Homemade Taco Seasoning

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp cumin
  • 1 Tbsp sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp finely ground pepper
  • 1 Tbsp paprika
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 2 tsp coriander
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)

How to put it all together:

  1. In a small bowl combine all the ingredients together and stir until well mixed.
  2. Store in an airtight glass container for up to 3 months.
  3. Use 2 Tbsp for 1 lb of meat.

Real Life. Real You.
