What's for Lunch?

If there is one thing that I get to love since we do not have a helper currently, it is having to cook lunch or dinner during the weekends. Just like today, I get to cook our lunch. We had baby back pork ribs (ala Racks, heheh) and potatoes with herbs.

I was really digging the Internet yesterday for the perfect recipe of a tender baby back rib but unfortunately, all ingredients that they used are not in our pantry. So the solution is to invent my own marinade. I used oyster sauce, ketchup, tomato paste, brown sugar, oregano, olive oil, vinegar, soy sauce and red wine. I marinated the slab of baby back ribs last night and boiled it in the marinade in the morning. Then broiled it but since we do not have an oven yet, I used the turbo broiler. I am actually afraid that the ribs would not be tender and juicy since I am not using an oven. Luckily, that did not happen.

Here is the finished product - I am somehow proud of this attempt to cook ribs without following any recipe. It was a success after all the experimenting - oh well, this is according to my husband. :)

Then I cooked potatoes with herbs as a side dish for the baby back ribs.

I know, this blog is becoming a food blog. But I don't really mind. After all, food is my passion!
