In need of a different ribs recipe? How about this interesting technique that marinades the ribs in a classic cocktail? That's right, rum and coke are combined with ketchup, Tabasco, and hoisin sauce to create a flavorful marinade for ribs. While the pork cooks on the grill, the marinade is boiled until it's thick like barbecue sauce. The resulting ribs are sweet and salty with just a hint of heat. Be sure to serve with lots of napkins; these saucy ribs are delectable, but messy! Here's the recipe.
If you've never made paella, the traditional Spanish rice dish with origins in Valencia, I highly recommend you give it a try this weekend! This uncomplicated recipe is easy to follow and has awesome results. The paella is filling, flavorful, and delicious. It's packed with chorizo and shellfish, so it has a wonderful surf-and-turf quality.
Although the recipe has you cook the paella on the grill, I made it on the stovetop. Other substitutions to note: I used Mexican chorizo instead of Spanish chorizo and omitted the squid and saffron, because of a restricted selection at the local market. Despite these changes, I really enjoyed this paella and plan to make it again soon! Check out the recipe now.
