Grilled BBQ Ribs and Fried Mac & Cheese
preparing the cheese balls
The Original Recipe:
Well, this is not a home made rib sauce recipe, but it is fast and very scrumptious. I marinated my ribs in the fridge all day and then grilled them. I do have a home made bbq recipe that I LOVE, so I will have to share that another day...
Also, on our side burner on the grill I fried up some of this Mac & Cheese from a recipe I found on Recipezaar. It is DELICIOUS!! I hope you try these. My 7-year-old ate 3 of them, and he is the one that doesn't like mac & cheese, lol...
1-2 lbs. bonless pork ribs
1 cup Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce
1/3 cup KC Master Piece Honey Teriyaki marinade
Combine and marinate for atleast 4 hours. Grill meat until no longer pink. I grilled at 350 degrees for about 30 min.
