What do you do when it’s 100 degrees outside and you don’t want to use the grill? Stay in doors of course! Cooking at 200 degrees keeps the heat out of your house, and then you get ribs that just fall off the bone. And what goes better with ribs than potatoes. I made rosemary sweet potatoes with my ribs last night.
Sweet potatoes are my favorite because they are not as sweet at yams. And sweet potatoes stand up well in the over for a longer period of time because they are harder than yams or regular potatoes. I added a little chili olive oil in addition to the fresh rosemary just to experiment, and it tasted really good. Usually I will add cayenne pepper to my dry rub, but I skipped it this time since I added some chili olive oil. I didn’t want the potatoes to be overpowered by the heat.
My husband was pleasantly surprised when he got home from work and ribs were waiting for him. Ribs are definitely one of his favorites. The best thing about slow cooked ribs is that the meat just falls off the bone. And as ribs go, pork ribs are the best!
