    I was contemplating adding aromatics and some other veggies to my rib foiling process. The thought came to me when i was about to make some brown sugar and whiskey carrots. Light bulb! Why not just throw the carrots in the syrup goodness under ribs in the foil. A "rib - roast" if you will. :p

    I tried to research this, but was unable to locate any threads. Thoughts?

    Best part of cooking, there aren't any rules.

    Sure it'll work. I don't know how much benefit the ribs will get from the carrots, however. They don't really provide a lot of flavor or aroma. Onions, garlic and herbs might bring quite a bit of flavor though. Whenever I oven braise pot roast or brisket, I always add onions and herbs to the braising liquid, as well as potatoes, parsnips and carrots. The latter 3 are just because I want them with the meal, I don't think they do anything for the meat.

    Agreed, carrots are usually along for the ride as a side dish
     
  9. Carrots will add some sweetness to the mix.

    Done. Ugh... well lets just say i wouldn't do it again. The carrots absorbed tons of alcohol. I mean a ton. It tasted the same as if i was drinking straight whiskey. The foil is probably fairly air tight and I presume it kept all the booze in. The sauce/syrup tasted great but for some reason the carrots tasted so wrong on so many levels.

    Oh well. Ribs were great.
