Just because it's a barbecue doesn't mean you have to serve baked beans and hot dogs. Follow this simple menu for a hearty and delicious backyard repast.
2 green apples, cored and sliced very thinly
1-1/2 cups walnuts, chopped
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese shavings
1 to 2 bags of prewashed mix baby greens
This salad gives an elegant touch to any meal, but it couldn't be simpler to toss together! Simply pour greens into a large bowl and top with the apple slices, walnuts and Parmesan shavings. Wait until just before serving to mix in the desired amount of dressing.
Pork baby-back ribs
Store-bought dry rub of your choice
*Note: The number of racks you need depends on how many guests you are planning on serving. Most guests will eat between three and four ribs. (It's always better to have too much than not enough.)
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Line a baking sheet (you might need more than one) with heavy-duty aluminum foil and place ribs on the foil. Sprinkle dry rub on both sides of the ribs and pat the spices into the meat. Put in oven and bake for about 2 hours and 15 minutes. A few minutes before the time is up in the oven, light the grill. Take the ribs out of the oven, slather with barbecue sauce, and finish them on the grill for 7 to 10 minutes. Allow to cool before serving.
3 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
3/4 cup flour
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Melt butter and baking chocolate together, then stir in sugar, salt, eggs and vanilla. Blend flour into the mixture until just blended (do not over-mix). Finally, fold chocolate chips and pecans into the batter.
Pour batter into a lightly greased 8- by 8-inch baking pan and bake for approximately 30 minutes or until a toothpick or knife comes out clean.
