Got my hands on an 11lb rib roast. It was on sale for $5.50/lb with a purchase of a certain sum of groceries. Trying out the reverse sear method.

Update: when I lifted the roast out of the pan, one of the ribs caught on the rack I used to elevate the meat above the pan.

…and the ribs came off as a single piece. 😄

Would take about two weeks to eat that.

Ours for Christmas was $14.99/pound (three ribs at just under 8 pounds). $5.99 is a super price!

The ribs weren't pre-cut off and tied back back in?

Last night I cut up a couple of pork ribs and cooked the pieces with Longhorn Steakhouse grill seasoning. I then added onions, bell peppers, onions, all diced. Served it over brown rice. I thought it turned out good.

The seasoning can be used as a dry rub for your meat also.

I don’t think so. I’ve never had that service happen before. And it didn’t fall apart when I put it into the pan in the first place. 🤷‍♂️

Food I made & served for Christmas dinner

Seven Layer Salad

Turkey Carciofi Casserole

Stuffed Hot Sausage & Ground Beef Meatloaf with tomato sauce

The salad is an old family recipe, with spinach, iceberg lettuce, water chestnuts, green onions, celery, peas and bacon with a topping of Mayo & sour cream, sprinkled with paprika.

We tried turning chicken carciofi into a casserole, subbing turkey meat for the chicken cutlets. The sauce consisted of butter, EVOO, pasta water, lemon juice, Sauvignon blanc, and shredded Parmesano reggiano. Mixing the cheese into the hot liquid melted it, thickening the sauce and giving the whole dish a subtle cheesiness, which played well with the artichokes and capers.

The surprise hit was the meatloaf, though. I took it from the oven and poured its sauce on it as it rested, then hit the shower to de-funkify myself. By the time I came back to the kitchen, most of the guests had arrived and had hit it HARD. That picture was taken as I returned…they had eaten approximately 2.5lbs of it in the few minutes it took for me to make myself presentable. By the evening’s end, all that remained was a chunk about the size of 2 small adult fists. Maybe half a pound?

I used:
1lb 80/20 ground meat
2lbs Louisiana hot sausage (homemade from old family commercial recipe)
3 jumbo eggs
Half a can of panko
About .75lbs of sliced Boar’s Head Black Forest ham
One ball of mozzarella from the Mozzarella Cheese company

The sauce was a jar of Dave’s Gourmet red sauce, jazzed up with diced tomatoes, parsley and chives.

Tonight’s dinner- my first try at a reverse-seared ribeye roast PLUS the mushrooms I served with it.

We got the ribeye roast for the reduced price of about $5.50/lb with other purchases, 1 per customer. There were only 2 left, both just over 11lbs. My father is lamenting his fate.
