Ribs, Beans and Greens- Yum!

While cleaning out my freezer, I came across two slabs of baby back ribs left from one of our backyard BBQs. I decided that was dinner. I smoked them in my gas grill using indirect heat with hickory wood. After grilling over a low heat for a couple of hours, I used a hoisin sauce to glaze, overed them in aluminum foil with some chicken broth (1/4 cup) and allowed them to steam a bit in the grill.

The greens are my standard except this time I used a ham bone I also found in the back of the freezer.

For the red beans I used a quick soak method. That is I soaked 1 cup dry red beans in warm water for about 3 hours. I tossed the soaking water and added about 2 cups chicken broth, 1/2 cup diced onion and a diced red serrano pepper with the beans to a sauce pot. This I slow cooked for about 3 hours until the beans were soft.

Dinner was served.

Dylan, since you live in L.A., you are in luck. I get the southern greens they have at Trader Joes. Already packaged washed and cut though I rinse them again.

Thanks Big Lu, it tasted great also.
