Yes Beef Ribs and Potato Roses with Poppy seed slaw

First off I have been MIA, off and on for a couple weeks just a couple minutes at a time, sometimes life just sucks

Now on to this cook I did Friday just as the f...ing big storm hit Nova Scotia again,

Started of with a small pack of 3 bone beef ribs ( beef grilling back ribs on the package )
Only salt , ground black pepper and touch of garlic powder

Into the smoker at 275 deg. with black cherry chips and 1 chunk
After couple hours , starting to look good

When they were down to roughly an hour and a half to go I started to make the Potato Roses

Sliced up potatoes nice and thin, laid out 2 strips and topped with the potatoes, make sure they over lap

As best you can roll them up and place into a greased muffin tins Next time I will not peel them as it might give an even better look when finished

I than mixed up some melted butter with pepper ( no salt because of the bacon ) dried parsley garlic powder ( you could add what flavours you would want to have )
In the oven at 375 for about 40 minutes , than covered and cooked for an other 30 minutes ( to make sure the bacon was cooked inside, then the last 15 minutes uncovered
( I did pull and remove some of the fat that built up in the tray and the empty cup )

So the ribs are at 172 IT so I wrapped them and back in for an hour, than pulled , took a look and smell Mmmmmmm.
took in house and let rest while the roses were finishing up in the oven.

The ribs were so juicy and full of beef flavour, and the potato roses , great with all the bacon flavour and crispy edges,
This is a meal I was really looking forward to . And I was very happy and I enjoyed as i was eating by myself

This was fantastic and will be done again , and of coarse I will test other flavours , maybe thin sliced onions in the roses , different spice profile on the ribs, but that is what it is about.

Thanks for looking ]

Side notes about the weekend
Mona was away for 12 days to see her other sister in BC, coming home tomorrow, ( which was Saturday ) But now the storm is going crazy
lightning and thunder and none stop heavy rain. In the end we had 200mm -300mm in our area, We were hit with the most in Bedford and Sackville.
10 pm I went to the basement office to post this ( did not happen until today Sunday ) as i got to the bottom steps I was greeted with my new indoor pool.
After I stopped swearing I got the shop van from shop and went to work , finished just in time to pick up Lovie at the airport Saturday morning.
On the way to the airport i was not sure if I would make it as all night long I was getting Alerts on phone saying roads everywhere closed form the flooding.
Cars were everywhere just abandoned from during the night before.
The storm was just down to rain by this time and her plane made it in. But we were the hardest hit in NS. I had pulled out the boats and glad I did there were a couple Pontoon boats floating around in the morning , they were quickly gathered up.

Thank god there was no real wind at all it was just freaky warm and still not counting the HEAVY rain.

All good today , just clean up and I found where the water came in at . So digging up the side end of house and fixing today .
Never had water in the basement ( from the outside ever lol ) Everything can be fixed , just a pain to have to .

Sorry for the rant , just another day in paradise, lol

Holy hell David, you laid down a culinary clinic on us, everything looks out of this world! Bravo Sir!

PS. Sorry about your basement problem.

Thanks Dave for the love and the comment

Very nice of you to say. and nice to get back to some smoking and posting

It was a great meal and the potato roses were a real treat that worked out nicely
Will do them again for sure with different flavours just to try.

As for the basement, it is just stuff, not enough to make a claim . Just my time and energy,

Master class meal David! Really love all of it. Flooded basements suck. My old place was in an area with a high water table and fairly frequent power outages. I learned to hate my sump pump and basement there.
 
Just Amazing David. You took this one to another level my friend. Just continue to just amaze me. Good luck on the clean up. I off to the river. I setting up a Bloody Mary bar this morning.

Thanks Jeff for the comment

It was a very good meal , one of the best Beef rib meals I have done ( not counting short ribs they are my fav )
And the potato Roses were fun for the first time , next time I will add my own touches to them , as always lol

As for the basement, water sucks and glad Mona was not home yet as she just loses her mind when S##T happens, so it was easier just by myself.
First time to have the basement ( at this house ) flood from the outside, We have had water from inside problems, can you say over flow sewage pump with a smile on your face . Not me .

Outstanding meal!!! Love the rose potatoes.
Hope you didn't suffer any damage with the flooding.

Thanks Bruce for the like and the comment

Yes the rose Potatoes were great loved the bacon ( who does not ) and the crispy edges . Almost like mini scalloped potatoes , well sort of.

Not a lot of damage mostly just papers and stupid stuff, thank god for shop vacs. And strong back, and some cursing. lol.
I know of others that had feet of water in theirs, so again we lucked out with only inches .

David
 
The meal looks amazing. I too will need to try the roses. Sorry to hear about the storm, but as you have already said, it’s just stuff and your family is good. Glad to hear.

Awesome meal David! The rose taters look downright tasty! Sorry to hear about the basement.

Thanks Steve for the like and the comment

these were fun to do and loved the crispy edges , and I will ramp them up next time with more add ins, but you know that is how we roll.

Thanks about the basement, little water damage , that can be fixed and outside hand digging sucks but better than some folks I know.
