Slow-cooked ribs - Memphis Style!

Our game of the week remains football - how can you get enough pigskin action after a long layoff?!   The Dallas Cowboys visit the Titans and the biggest contest here may be the argument over which ribs taste best; Texas or Memphis-style ribs. We will slow cook dry rub (Memphis-style) ribs in the oven to provide your home with the smell of a tailgating party.  You can then decide whether to add your favorite BBQ sauce to the slab of succulent ribs or simply dip as necessary.  Enjoy!  






September 6 Game of the Week..

Italian Beef Sandwiches - Chicago's Own Sandwich!

Attitude is everything in Chicago. One of the world's great cities, Chicago was built with great spirit and a hungry attitude. The Chicago Bears have built one of the most successful franchises in football with this same spirit and attitude. Bears' fans pack Soldier field each home game with the expectation of crushing their opponent. Win or lose, fans will return to their seats for the next game with the same conviction that the Bears will win.

Chicago is also one of the great food cities in the world, and Chicagoland brings the same conviction and attitude to making memorable food.  While the Chicago Deep Dish pizza and Chicago hot dog are tempting choices for today, I celebrate another great sandwich that represents a great city!
