Gonna do a cook for the game Saturday. Menu includes:

ABTs
Carwash Mike Ribs
Jalapeno & roasted red pepper creamed corn
Sourdough bread rolls

I am trying to think of some other side to go with the ribs. Any go-to suggestions from the group?

    I would think some Baked Beans would be good along with the Ribs as would a good salad.

  • BBQ, mac and cheese, baked beans, corn, collar greens, zipper cream peas and tater salad.  Reminds me of the old days being at Granny's house for family get together and dinner. Ahhhh, the good ole days.

  • You are probably right about the baked beans. I am personally not a fan, but the rest of the world is.

    Necessary - That mac n cheese looks good. Is it posted somewhere?

    Pinto beans. Simple and if you use dry beans, they take almost the exact time as ribs. You can use just about anything but here is an example of what I would use. 

    Dry pinto beans (duh)
    low sodium chicken stock
    bacon(raw)
    cilantro(fresh)
    pickled cactus
    sliced pickled jalapeños 
    diced onion
    season to taste(go easy on the salt, the rest of the goodies have plenty)

    Cook uncovered (I use a enameled cast iron pot) takes 4-5 hours. Stir every hour or so.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    Here is the recipe: http://necessaryindulgences.com/recipe-macaroni-four-cheese

    You can double the béchamel sauce for a creamier mac ‘n cheese (that's what I do). :)

    This is simple and always a hit for me.

    Mike

    Blue Cheese Cole Slaw

    5 cups shredded cabbage
    1 cup shredded red cabbage
    1/2 cup mayo
    1/4 cup butter milk
    2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
    1 teaspoon minced garlic
    3/4 cup crumbled blue cheese (split 1/2 cup and 1/4 cup)
    salt to taste
    fresh ground black pepper to taste

    Combine cabbage in large bowl. In a food processor or blender combine mayo, butter milk, garlic, 1/2 cup blue cheese, Dijon, pinch of salt and pepper. Process until smooth, pour over cabbage, add remaining blue cheese, toss to coat/mix. Adjust salt and pepper to taste, cover and chill for 3-4 hours.

    I will have to admit I used it more than once with it and it is amazing stuff. I totally endorse it because it is just so delicious. If you want good foods then follow her and she knows how to really cook. I like her approach because it is very elegant.
