What We're Cooking! - Frugal Friday Pork Riblets with Parmesan Garlic Potato Planks
I am all about the deal. One of my favorite deals is clearance and/or low cost meat. My local Family Thrift Center often has packages of pork riblets on sale for $1.00 or $2.00. This is a great deal. As it is only Ryan and me, 1 package is enough for both of us. If Eli is home then I will add a second package. I cook these in the slow cooker with some Sweet Baby Ray's and a little bit of water. Sweet Baby Ray's is our bbq sauce of choice and it's gluten free! I cook them on high for about 4 hours or you could cook them on low for 6 to 8 hours. I also made some Garlic Parmesan Potato Planks. These are easy, cheap and yummy. Take 4 to 5 potatoes and cut them into planks. Place the potatoes into a zipper bag with 2 to 3 TBSP of olive oil, 2 tsp garlic powder 1 tsp salt and 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese. Shake to coat the potatoes and place in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Place in 350 degree oven for 30 to 45 minutes. Enjoy!
