Brags go out to the hubs for this little wonderful dinner last night (and then "lunch" again at 0100 at work). So yummy, so easy, so....manly (but this chick digs it too!). I woke up yesterday afternoon to the smell of something delicious floating out of the slow cooker but wasn't allowed to tinker with The Man's meal-making. No problem. I love to cook but I love to be cooked for on my work and sleep days. No complaints from me at all! and, boy, was I in heaven when he was finished.
The basic idea is that he made pinto "brown" beans but instead of the usual ham, he used boneless country ribs for the seasoning meat. Then he added an easy but really tasty BBQ sauce (Steven Raichlen, of course!) and served it ladled over microwaved sweet potatoes and with a big side of steamed of broccoli. It was divine! Both times!
A word about the nutrition counts. I am not a low-carb at any cost diet fan. I am a good whole food vs processed food (carb) girl. Sweet Potatoes? Yes! Beans? Yes! Hostess Cupcakes? Yeeee....NOOOOOO! So while this recipe does, indeed, contain 75 carbs it also balances that out with 20, (TWENTY) grams of fiber. Those are very good carbs, my friends, and we heartily enjoyed every one of them.
