The Foot’s Ginnjamon Ribs

The Foot’s Ginnjamon Ribs

At least one rack of pork baby-back ribs
Ground sage
Thyme leaves
Cinnamon powder
Garlic powder
Cayenne powder
Cumin powder
Turmeric powder
Cumin powder
Fresh-grated or ground ginger root OR spicy ginger BBQ sauce
Sesame oil
Kosher or coarse-grained salt
Fresh ground black pepper
An oven and a lot of time

Cover the ribs, one side at a time, in the spices. First, put salt, pepper, thyme, and sage followed by a light coat of garlic, a touch of cayenne, a LIGHT dusting of turmeric, a pinch of cumin,and then a thorough coating of cinnamon, until you can barely see the other spices. Rub the spices in like
a masseuse going for a big tip. Leave in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours.

COOKING: Take a shallow pan that the rib ends do not hang over. Put a sheet of foil on the bottom of the pan, and wrap over the edges. Place the ribs upon the foil. Tent a large sheet of foil over the ribs, no higher than an inch or two above the meat. If it touches in a couple spots, its ok, but if the foil is in direct contact the length of the rib surface, meat will adhere to the foil and be lost. Place in an oven at 250 degrees.
For one or two racks: Four and a half to six hours
For three to sic: No less than ten hours

Remove from oven, taking off foil carefully to avoid steam,and then pull out the bones with a twisting motion, until the meat is just waiting for your face. Apply a dusting, smearing, or zesting of your gingery choice before allowing to rest out for at least 15 minutes.

(P.S. Place a slab on a toasted bun for a tasty treat!)




Pork and beans

In Recipes on November 15, 2008 at 8:09 pm

[A regular series as dictated by bassist Joe Stuhff]

4-6 SMOKED pork shanks, sliced, whole, or halved.
*1 bag of dried beans (pinto, black, or a soulful mix)
Some water
A rather large pot with a lid and excellent heat distribution

*It is usually necessary to soak your dried beans overnight. If you have not done so, please shoot yourself. Canned beans are not an acceptable substitute. This is soul food, it should not be easy.

Place the beans on the stove and cook as per the instructions on the bag they came with. Then add the pork shanks.This should take between 4 and 6 hours, during which you can make

This is not so much a recipe as a method of combining several foodstuffs together to make an UBERFOODSTUFF!

Krusteaz(c) or Jiffy(c) brand cornbread mix
At least one ear of corn
A small amount of original Fritos(c), completely crushed into smithereens
A cute little muffin pan, I mean frickin’ miniature!

Make the corn batter. To this add less than a half handful of the Frito(c) crumbs.Pour the batter in those little tiny muffin cups until they are halfway full. Then, in each cup, deposit between 4 and 8 kernels of fresh corn. Now fill the cups completely and bake. After four or five minutes of baking, quickly remove the still-doughy cakes and give the crowns a dusting of Fritos(c) crumb. Continue the baking process, and eat with your pork and beans!

Good Eating!
