Howdy folks and welcome to Leoal and Travis's Online Dinner Diary. Why, you ask, would someone create an entire blog around what they had to eat? Well, it's just so good we felt we should share. So this blog will involve recipes we have created, links to other recipes we have tried and how they have turned out, and possibly a critique of any dinners out we have. We will talk about our kitchen tools, and we will also provide a kid rating for our dinners based on how well Ian likes them. He's not that picky, though.

So to begin. For dinner tonight we had boiled potatoes and frozen peas. Not too glamourous, I know, but we didn't want anything to interfere with Travis's Sweet and Spicy Back Ribs :

2-3 lbs pork back ribs
salt and pepper

1 1/2 cups ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup corn syrup
2 tbsp worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp soy sauce
2-3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 tsp tabasco
1 tsp dried chilies
1 tsp dried mustard
1 tsp chili powder

Preheat oven to 350F. Chop ribs into 2-3 rib sections. Place in med roasting pan, fatty side up. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste. Add about 1/4 inch of water to the roasting pan, cover, and place in oven for 45 mins.

Meanwhile, in bowl mix remaining ingredients to a sauce. After the ribs have been in the oven for the allotted time, remove pan from oven, lower heat to 275F, Pour out the water and melted fat, add sauce, and place back in oven for 90 mins. Increase heat to 350F, for 30 mins. These babies will fall off the bone and melt in your mouth.

Normally we would put a pic in here as well but we didn't think of it until after we ate it all, hahahaha. Ian really liked it, he gobbled it all right up. We poured the extra sauce on the potatoes. Yum! It has quite a zing, you can leave the spicy stuff out if you want to make it a bit milder. If anybody tries this and it turns out for you too, please leave a comment!
