Update & A Rib Rub

Okay, so I’ve been MIA for over two weeks. I’ve had quite a bit going on and that is why I’ve been absent. I apologize to those of you who have been keeping up with the blog and enjoying my recipes.
Anyway, I’m going to be away for a bit longer. I’m having heart surgery next Tuesday, March 26. I probably won’t post or share any new recipes until the second week of April.
I do have quite a few things o share with you guys though and I’m excited to do so. I just don’t have time currently while preparing for surgery. I can only imagine how badly I’m going for feel for at least a week after, so I’m not promising anything until that second week of April.

Unfortunately in prep for this surgery and up to 7 day hospital stay (which I won’t e able to stick to my paleo lifestyle during) I’ve had to incorporate some non paleo foods back into my diet. Gluten free oats, plain Greek yogurt, and goat cheese have been some of them.
That being said, I made ribs on Thursday night with my best friend. They turned out pretty good for it win the first time I’d ever cooked ribs.

Here’s the recipe for the rub we used. Really easy and quick!

Rib Rub (full rack)
4 Tbsp Lawry’s low sodium seasoned salt
3 Tbsp Lawry’s Garlic Salt
2.5 Tbsp Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle seasoning
2 Tbsp honey

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix together dry seasonings in a bowl and split into two portions.
Rub half of the dry seasonings to the bottom half of the ribs.
Rub remainder of the dry seasonings to the top of the ribs.
***Now here’s the weird part***
Choose a side of the ribs, (right or left) and from the very end of that side to 4 ribs in, rub honey into the ribs on top of the rub.
If you decide to do this on the entire rack, I would use maybe 6 Tbsp of honey.
It tasted great, but it was an experiment, so I didn’t so it to the entire rack of ribs.

Bake in oven for 1.5 hours give or take a little time for variation in ovens.
My rack of ribs weighed 4.6lbs.

Ribs were paired with asparagus that was cooked in a foil pocket in the oven for 8mins on Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
