Slow Cooker Southern Style Ribs

Rinse and Pat Dry
4# Southern Style Ribs
Rub each side to taste with:
Salt
Pepper

Paprika
Garlic Powder
Onion Powder
or any other spices of your choice

Place the ribs in the Slow Cooker
Top with:
1 Chopped Onion
and Red Pepper Flakes (Optional)

Pour on Barbeque Sauce of your choice I used:
28 oz. Sweet Baby Rays Gourmet Sauce ~ Honey Barbeque Sauce ~ It is Gluten Free
Add about 3 TBL water to the bottle and give it a shake and pour that over the ribs as well.

Cook on high
Mine took 5 Hours
Check after 4 hours to see if they are tender. Depending on the size of the ribs it can take 5-6 hours to cook. When they are fork tender your ribs are done.

Skim the fat off the top. I used a Turkey Baster to help remove it.

I served my Ribs with:
Jasmine Rice
Corn
Beer Batter Bread

ENJOY!

Trader Joe's Gluten Free Bread ~ One week later


One week ago today I bought my first Trader Joe's brand of Gluten Free Bread. I purchased the Whole Grain Bread. It was $4.49 for a loaf. I kept my bread in the refrigerator because of the heat and humidity. This bread stayed fresh the whole week and there is no doubt it will stay fresh longer,, I finished off the loaf today. I will be heading back soon to Trader Joe's to purchase another loaf.

Trader Joe's Gluten Free Haul ~ June 19, 2015










 Trader Joe's Gluten Free Haul ~ June 19, 2015

I just found out that Trader Joes carries their own brand of Gluten Free White Bread, Whole Grain Bread, Hamburger and Hotdog Buns and Bagels. I bought the Whole Grain bread. It is a very tasty bread and is not dry. This bread is not frozen. You will find it in the Fresh Bread section. I made a sandwich and it did not crumble apart. I will be buying this bread again.

In this video I show you some of my favorite Gluten Free items from Trader Joes.

Heat a large skillet to medium high and add about 2 TBL. Oil
3-4# Chuck Roast
Dry with a paper towel
Salt and pepper both sides
Brown all sides in the skillet  about 4-5 minutes per side

In a large bowl mix:
1 Bag Baby Carrots
1 Onion Sliced
2 Cans (4 oz) Sliced Mushroom
4 Stalks Celery diced
Minced Garlic, Salt and Pepper to Taste
3 Tbl. Gluten Free Flour (use regular flour if not Gluten Free)
Place in the bottom of the crock pot

Top with the Meat
Sprinkle with Garlic and Onion Powder to taste
a Dash or two of Crushed Red Pepper Flakes and 3-4 Bay Leaves

This is Optional:
We like adding Chourico which is a Portuguese Sausage.
Wedge two pieces around the sides of the Chuck Roast

Mix together:
1 14-1/2 oz Can of Diced Tomatoes
½ Cup Red Wine
1-2 TBL Parsley Flakes
Pour over the Meat

Cover and cook
Low 8-10 Hours
High 5 Hours
The times can vary depending on how thick your Chuck Roast is. Check your Meat with a fork to see if it is tender.

I remove the Fat with a turkey baster

Remove the Meat, place on a cutting board and cover with foil. Let it rest for 15-20 minutes.

I do not thicken the broth,, if you would like it thickened use a corn starch slurry

Serve the Pot Roast and vegetables with Mash Potatoes.

ENJOY!
