Today 's Dinner is BBQ Back Ribs with Roasted Potatoes and Salads.
I did home made dry rub and rubbed the ribs all over, they were on a baking rack, covered with foil paper, in a 275F oven for four hours,(my oven is very low without the fan-check yours) they were brushed with home made BBQ Sauce, put them back in the preheated 375F oven for 15 minutes on each side

If you like a rich, thick barbecue sauce on your ribs, then this is the perfect one for you. By using tomato sauce and tomato paste instead of ketchup you get a richer flavor in your barbecue sauce.
1 8 ounce can tomato sauce
1 6 ounce can tomato paste
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic crushed
4 tablespoons minced onion
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon cayenne
fresh ground pepper to taste
if you have liquid smoke you can add couple of drops this will give the flavour of outdoor BBQ specially in the winter when you are BBQ indoors.

Cook minced onion and garlic in olive oil until onions turns opaque. Add remaining ingredients, mix thoroughly and allow to simmer for about 20 minutes. Makes about 1 1/2 cups of barbecue sauce.
Dry Rub:
8 tablespoons light brown sugar, tightly packed
3 tablespoons kosher salt
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon jalapeno seasoning
1/2 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
1/2 teaspoon rubbed thyme
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
try this and let me know..... they are tender and full of flavour, the sauce and the rub are home made , instead of using bottled spices.
Also I made roasted potatoes, I sliced the potatoes on a wooden spoon, not cutting all the way, brushing the potatoes with olive oil and then stuffed them with slices of garlic,salt and pepper.

what left from our dinner will be another meal for tomorrow... I wonder What?????????????
