Tangerine-Hatch Chile Roasted Pork Ribs

I've been enamored with Not Ketchup since Erika first sponsored a blogging event that I was coordinating a few years ago; I'd never heard of her product before that.

Now I actively watch for any new flavors she develops via her Twitter feed or via her Facebook page. Just recently I saw her post that she had a Tangerine-Hatch Chile fruit ketchup coming out...and it had 'No Sugar Added.' I had to order it immediately.*

Before it arrived, I thought about making a version of  Duck L'Orange. But, today, I was inspired to make some oven-roasted boneless pork ribs for lunch instead.

  • 3 to 4 lbs boneless pork ribs
  • 2 T granulated garlic
  • 1 bottle Tangerine Hatch Chile Not Ketchup
  • 1/2 C pickled red onions (recipe to come)
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place ribs in 9" x 13" baking dish. Sprinkle with 1 T granulated garlic. Turn over and sprinkle with the other 1 T garlic. Roast at 400 degrees for 60 minutes. Remove from the oven and lower temperature to 250 degrees.

Pour 1/3 bottle of the sauce over the ribs.

Turn over and pour 1/3 of the bottle on the other side. Lay pickled onions over the top. Reserve the last 1/3 of the sauce for serving.

Cover with foil and roast for 2-1/2 hours. Uncover and roast for another 20 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

We served ours with a side of millet and more sauce for dipping.

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Aloo Tiki {Pakistan}

To start off our Pakistani culinary adventure, I started us off with aloo tiki - potato cutlets. I'm always game for tasty street food. I found a couple of different recipes and incorporated those together for this version. Ingredients 6-8 small red potatoes, scrubbed 1 T cumin seeds 1 T fresh chopped parsley 1/2 t ground coriander 1 t minced garlic Procedure Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and let cool. Mash the potatoes. Traditionally they are mashed without their skins. I left the skins on. In a small pan, toast the cumin seeds on high heat until the begin to give off an aroma and begin to darken. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate to keep them from cooking any more. Blend all of the spices into the mashed potatoes, then shape into small patties. If you wet your hands, the potato mixture won't stick to them. Heat a splash of oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Dip each patty into beaten egg and carefully place in the oil. P

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an
