    A while back my buddy from Iran gave me some of a meat and potato dish his wife made for him for lunch, I'm going to attempt to recreate it, with some additions. Potatoes sliced thin, layered with meat (I'm using ground beef, but chicken is good), onions, green peppers, stewed tomatoes, and spices. The main spice is zardchoobeh, it took us a little bit to figure out that over here we call it turmeric. My twist I'm trying is to add paprika, thin sliced yellow squash and zucchini, and maybe a little cheese, not sure what kind yet. I guess it's kind of like a lasagna with potatoes instead of pasta, and less tomato sauce.

      Finally, time to cook again! Feta chicken with lemon juice, frozen mixed baby vegetables in butter sauce, and hearts of Romaine bag salad. Nothing fancy, but whatever. It wasn't fast food!

        I found some seafood gumbo in my freezer, so we had that. It's not quite as good once it's been frozen, of course, but it's certainly easier than making another batch.

          The Tri Tip I cooked last night was one of my top 10 best...
           
          My "secret rub" included applewood smoked salt...
           
          On the grill fat side up, with indirect heat for 75 minutes...
           
          Last 5 minutes I dumped some Lawry's teriyaki on it...it's a rather thin sauce which is good...most of it ran off the roast, leaving a nice nuance of flavor (I didn't want it to overpower the flavor of the roast)...
           
          I had a container set aside for leftovers, but, in the end there were NO leftovers to preserve...

            Avocado and cream cheese-stuffed chicken breast with salsa, cauliflower with cheddar sauce, lima beans from a can (I ran out of creativity).

                  Right now I'm making Steve Raichlen's recipe for Chinatown ribs. Ribs were on sale in every store around here I guess because of the Super Bowl. I usually use only St. Louis Style pork ribs but this time I've included some beef ribs. Hopefully I'll remember to take pictures before they're all gone!

                    Agnes, I can't wait to hear how that recipe works out.  It's one I saved when I saw him do it.
                     
                    For dinner tonight I was still in a Mexican mood.
                     

                     
                    Huevos Rancheros without the needed rice and beans.
                     
                    Trying to get back on the healthy track.

                      Thanks, ann and agnes! It came out really well, considering I made it up as I went along.
                       
                      Today I spent the bulk of the day with a huge vat of navy bean and ham soup simmering away on the stove. It completely filled my Dutch oven to the rim, and it was fabulous.

                          My Chinatown ribs came out great! I made them once before using only pork ribs and did them outside using my Weber charcoal grill. Yesterday I used both beef and pork ribs and decided that I really didn't want to keep going in and out. The temperature was in the 20's with a breeze. I'll grill in almost any kind of weather but when I'm doing something that requires low and slow I prefer it to be at least in the 30's!
                          They came out so good that when making this particular recipe I might always make them inside and definitely will use beef ribs. Here is a picture of the beef ribs. The pork rib pictures came out a little blurry.

                          I recommend making 1 1/2 or twice the sauce/marinade recipe to insure you have enough extra to put on before serving. 
                          I cooked them loosely covered with foil for 2 hours at 250 then turned the oven up to 350 basted with some of the reserved sauce and cooked them another 30 minutes. We don't like our ribs to be "falling off the bone" tender. These came out perfect. 
                          Marlene, I also cut the sugar down to 1/4 cup instead of half. It was plenty.

                              Agnes, THANKS!  They look amazing.
                               
                              I only made beef ribs once.  Too much fat to meat ratio and I don't know how to buy them to prevent it happening that way.
                               
                              Thanks for the recipe tweaks.  I'm saving them.
                               
                              Did you cook the baby backs as a slab or individual?

                                Beef ribs are SO easy to make it's a snap!
                                You go to the store such as Sprouts and buy "boneless" beef ribs, take em home and boil the hell out of the meat for awhile then put them on the BBQ/Grille and cook!  Marinate as desired!  The meat is SOoooooooooooo  tender it will melt in your mouth!

                                  Which works if you live somewhere there are stores such as Sprouts. No such luck here without driving at least three hours.
                                   
                                  I've always found that boiling meat leaches all the flavour out if it, like when you make stock. When I do that, the meat typically ends up in the trash. Do you have a recipe, or a suggested method? I am now intrigued. Whenever I do beef ribs I braise them, then put them in the crock pot with my sauce all day long.

                                    Those ribs do look good but I dont care for Ribs with the bones.........main reason......way too little meat on them and are mostly bones from my experience!  When you buy the ribs you buy them by the pound and bone weighs a lot so you are mainly paying for bone and not meat!  Yet another reason to buy boneless!

                                      Price is adjusted for the bones, Greg.  Boneless cost more per pound.
                                       
                                      It's not the cooking part that is difficult.  It's the buying and not knowing how fatty the beef ribs are until you take a bite out of them.
                                       
                                      I also don't care for boiling prior to grilling.  I have a friend who microwaves some foods before putting them on the grill.  She says that way the inside is sure to be cooked.
                                       
                                      I've been to barbecue places that boil chicken and then heat them up with sauce.  I only go to a place like that once.

                                        I agree Felix! I don't boil my ribs or my brats! I only "boil" brats if I am simmering them in sauerkraut. Usually I cook them on my Weber with indirect heat. I usually do ribs the same way. Boiling leaches out the flavor fat is trying to leave in!
                                        My brother cooks his ribs and wings in his crockpot. I think they turn out mushy. I usually use the grill but have had great results in my oven!

                                          Greek chicken(embarrassingly easy) and roasted vegetable orzo. I got both recipes on-line.

                                                      Leftover lentil soup. Lazy.

                                                      Not at all lazy! Why else make soup if you aren't going to eat it for a few days, and quite possibly freeze the rest?
                                                       
                                                      That said...we're having leftover navy bean with ham soup.

                                                        Agnes, I can't wait to hear how that recipe works out.  It's one I saved when I saw him do it.

                                                        For dinner tonight I was still in a Mexican mood.



                                                        Huevos Rancheros without the needed rice and beans.

                                                        Trying to get back on the healthy track.

                                                        That looks fantastic!!!

                                                          Unusual for me to cook like this, but I love Indian food and made this from a recipe in a friend's blog:

                                                            That looks delicious! I love Indian food!

                                                            I was craving ice cream the other day but the weather was bad. I had a package of Kulfi mix that I picked-up at the Indian cash & carry. I had low expectations...but had to give it a try. I had lower expectations when I tasted it (saffron - almond - pistachio) before it went in the freezer! It was delicious! I will try to make it from scratch...now that I enjoyed it.

                                                            I'd love to see the blog...if you'd like to share it!
