It’s hard to put up a first post. It seems so significant.
I can sometimes over-think things, so I am going to channel my sister, Anne Marie. She has this ability to make a decision and go with it. It may take me two months to decide what color my next duvet cover should be. She’ll swing into Target and pick up a new bedroom furniture set in two minutes – and move happily on to the next project of the day
So, without further contemplation, here is my first recipe. Last time I made it, Matt declared it was the “best thing you have ever made.” Luckily for me, he is incredibly appreciative of everything I make and declares most meals I make as the “best thing you have ever made.”
He also declared this was a supremely satisfying post-work out meal. The sweet potatoes give it carbs, and the meat makes it rich and nourishing. “It’s the perfect athlete’s stew,” he stated. I think it’s delicious – and I hope you do too!
Yellow onion, 1, chopped
Garlic, 2 cloves, diced
Jalapeno pepper, ½ , finely diced
Sweet potato, 2, chopped into ½ cubes
Can of diced tomatoes, 28 oz
Tomato paste, 2 TSP
Ribs, 1.5 lbs (Ideally boneless ribs, but bone-in will work as well)
Salt, 1 tsp
Pepper, ½ tsp
Summer savory, 1/2 tsp
Water, 2 cups
1) Add all ingredients into 4 or 6 quart crock pot.
2) Stir together.
3) Let cook on low heat for 8 hours or so.
4) If you used ribs with bones, remove the bones. The meat should have fallen off by now.
