All the satisfaction with a third of the guilt. Ok, so I added some cream. You can make this with 3 cups of yogurt and have zero guilt. But, hear me, this is nothing compared to the guilt that comes with motherhood. Plus, you are not going to eat the whole loaf (are you?)!
This is my first recipe with Foodsaver stores and I have to say, these are my best BBQ ribs beyond any reasonable doubt! Sticky, caramelized, meltingly tender and so so flavourful. It’s BBQ season after all and baby back ribs have to be on the menu. I keep a stack in the freezer in case I get the “Flintstones” cravings (remember the dino spare ribs?) Continue reading
