Whenever I fire up the coals, I make enough food for at least two meals. I hate to say it, but I'm not that fond of grilling pork ribs (I LOVE doing beef ribs). But husband requested and I dry-rubbed a rack of pork ribs (baby back). Is this going to sound stupid or what? They were too meaty and lean! Not fatty enough. We had one each (I'm not kidding about too meaty), and I froze the rest to use in beans or something.
On the other hand, once the coals are hot, I always prepare for other meals. In this case a cheap beef roast I'd marinaded in my favorite. Onions & Butter in foil (an old family favorite) and baby beets in foil (the farmer's market). Halved some zucchini, and took them and some corn and rolled in seasonings and olive oil.
The ribs were not a hit, but I'm here to tell you the veggies were!
I'd also marinaded a little beef roast in my favorite soy based marinade, and when all of supper was off the grill, stuck it on.
When I took it off, I let it sit for a half hour or so, meaning to slice and use in various dishes over the next week or three. As I was slicing, husband smelled it and asked for a snitch. Huh? Heck, he paid for it. he ate it and I said, next time we stick to beef, huh? (I'd bought both beef and pork ribs, the latter at his request, and the beef ribs went into the freezer). He agreed with me.
