Aprons Advice:
•    Complete your meal with corn on the cob, fresh salad blend, and cherry pie for dessert.
•    If baking ribs, brush with sauce and broil 2 minutes at the end of cook time for a caramelized finish.

•    Prepare ribs and begin to grill (2 hours, 10 minutes)
•    Prepare salad and suggested sides (30 minutes)
•    Complete ribs; serve (10 minutes)


3 lb baby back pork ribs
1 (12- x 36-inch) sheet aluminum foil
4 tablespoons chipotle pepper sauce, divided
2 tablespoons chipotle-roasted garlic seasoning
3/4 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

1.    Preheat grill to 350°F. Place ribs on foil in single layer; brush with 2 tablespoons pepper sauce and sprinkle with seasoning on both sides (wash hands). Bring up ends of foil and double-fold both sides to completely seal ribs.
2.    Place foil pouch on grill over indirect heat; close lid and cook 2 hours, or until tender.
3.    Combine ketchup, vinegar, and remaining 2 tablespoons pepper sauce. Remove ribs from foil pouch; brush with sauce and grill 3-4 minutes on each side or until sauce has caramelized on ribs. Serve with any remaining sauce on the side for dipping.
Note: Ribs can be baked at 350°F for 2 hours and served with sauce on the side.

1/2 cup balsamic vinaigrette
1 tablespoon roasted minced garlic 1 teaspoon dried oregano
12 oz fresh portabella mushroom caps
2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons fresh Italian parsley, finely chopped
1 (10-oz) package shelled edamame (about 2 cups)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (about 2 oz)

1.    Combine vinaigrette, garlic, and oregano. Remove gills (brown ribs) from mushrooms; place mushrooms in shallow dish. Pour 1/4 cup vinaigrette mixture over mushrooms and toss to coat; let stand 10 minutes (or up to 1 hour) to marinate. Preheat grill (or grill pan) while mushrooms marinate.
2.    Whisk yogurt into remaining vinaigrette mixture until combined. Place mushrooms on grill; cook 2-3 minutes on each side or until tender. Remove mushrooms from grill; cut into small pieces.
3.    Chop parsley. Place in salad bowl: mushrooms, edamame, walnuts, parsley, and remaining yogurt mixture; toss to coat. Serve.
