ribsgrilled_veggies

Ingredients:

– 4 lbs pork or beef spareribs

Remedy Ribs Marinade Glaze:

– 1 cup Nature’s Promise Organic Ketchup (available at Stop n Shop)

– 1/4 cup Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar

– 1 teaspoon cinnamon

– 1 teaspoon finely minced garlic

Р 1 teaspoon onion powder

– 1 teaspoon black pepper

– 1 teaspoon paprika

– 1 tbsp Tuong-Ot Sriracha (Chili Sauce)

– 1 tbsp Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing

– 2 tbsp organic honey

– 4 packets Sweet Leaf stevia

Grilled Vegetables:

– 1 cup asparagus cut into 4 inch pieces

– 1 sliced red pepper cut into 4 inch pieces

– 1 sliced orange pepper cut into 4 inch pieces

– 1 sliced yellow pepper cut into 4 inch pieces

– 2 tbsp olive oil

– 3 tbsp Cardini’s Light Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing

– 1 teaspoon finely minced garlic

(A grill cage is preferable when grilling the vegetables.)

 

Remedy Ribs Instructions:

– Spray a little olive oil spray on a sauce pan and heat on low. Once the pan is hot, combine all the Remedy Ribs Marinade Glaze ingredients in the sauce pan, and gently stir. Allow to simmer for 10 minutes.

– Apply the Remedy Ribs Marinade Glaze onto the 4 lbs of pork or beef spare ribs. (I coat the ribs completely & usually allow the ribs to marinate in the glaze overnight.)

– Gas grill instructions: Turn one half of the grill to medium-high, & the other half on low. Place the ribs on the low heat side of the grill, turning every 15 minutes for 1 hour. Apply more glaze, brushing on, and continue cooking for another 30 minutes, turning the ribs every 10 minutes.

(Wood charcoal grill instructions: build up charcoal on one side of the grill only. Allow to grey sufficiently, (( approximately 20 minutes)). Place the ribs on the side of the grill without charcoal, turning every 15 minutes for 1 hour. Apply more glaze, brushing on, and continue cooking for another 30 minutes, turning the ribs every 10 minutes. For the last 5 minutes, put the grill cover on with the vents open to allow for higher internal temperatures.)

Allow to cool for 1 minute, & serve.

Grilled Balsamic Vegetables Instructions:

Place the 4 inch pieces of all the vegetables into a large tupperware or tin, with 2 tbsp olive oil, 3 tbsp Cardini’s Light Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing, & 1 teaspoon finely minced garlic, mixing well, thoroughly coating the vegetables. For best results, allow to marinate overnight. Place all vegetables in the grill cage and place on the medium-high temperature side of either gas or charcoal grill. Cook for 12 minutes, turning the cage every 3 minutes. Allow to cool for 1 minute & serve.
