The summer grill fires may be long gone, but our taste for cooked meat will never wane. Our Baby Back Rib Meat Sliders are the perfect remedy for the long gone dog days of summer. And although our baby back ribs are cooked in the oven they still come out falling off the bone and delicious! We started with a rack of baby back ribs and rubbed them with a good grade of extra virgin olive oil, then gave them a heavy-handed dusting of bold chipotle seasoning, then massaged in a vibrant coffee rub. What next? Well, I am glad you asked. What came next is a cupful of light brown sugar, which makes a mighty fine blanket of sweetness and is a great tenderizer. The brown sugar will also mix with the pan drippings and create a sweet and savory au jus. We wrapped the ribs in aluminum foil, set the ribs in a pan, and put it in a preheated oven set at 350° F. After two hours these ribs are done up nicely and will have the whole house smelling like a carnivore’s wonderland.
All great ribs start with adding the perfect seasoning. We add a bit of spice and sweet with our trio of seasoning. From left and clockwise we have light brown sugar, Bold Chipotle Seasoning, and a flavorful Coffee Rub.
The Baby Back Rib Meat Sliders are served up with homemade slaw and dill pickles, but the cherry on top is the one-of-a-kind King Hawaiin rolls. These unbelievably soft and delicious rolls are what sliders dream of. So, whether you’re making our rib meat sliders or sandwiching some other delicious concoction between the King’s Hawaiian you are already half way to great eating.
You can find The Original King’s Hawaiian at you local HEB supermarket. I grabbed an 18-count pack back because weekend game-watching calls for extra helpings. And, did you know that King’s Hawaiian also make Hot Dog Buns, Hamburger buns and BBQ sauce in several flavors like Original Sweet Pineapple, Smoked Bacon? I mean what more could you ask for! Are, you ready for gameday! I sure am!! #GameTimeGrilling.
