Question by Brandi: Why is their not a single recipe for pork ribs that does not involve brown sugar or bbq?
Ok, so grandma gave me a bunch of meat and I’m trying to figure out how to cook it all. So one of the packages contains a small rack of pork ribs…
I’m trying to find a good recipe to cook them with.
I HATE bbq, and I HATE sweet meat. It’s disgusting.
So I need a recipe that does not involve bbq or any kind of sugar.
Also it would be an extra double bonus if the recipe was for a slow cooker as grandma also just bought me one and wants me to use it.
And it would be an extra triple double bonus if the recipe didn’t call for too many obscure ingredients or spices as I’m a college kid and a.) don’t have many ingredients, and b.)don’t have much money to go buy any.
Answer by Lux Lucis Canis You gotta give them a rub, with like vinegar and wine and sugar all work together to chemically alter the meat’s proteins fats and collegens and stuff….it’s magic I can’t explain it…..there is science behind it. Basically after you cook the meat you take the meltings/drippings from the rub and meat juices and whatever and sautee them to make a sauce which is genetically bound to the meat itself and creates a taste sensation…..
Question by me: How to make curries red in colour?
While cooking anything i mostly dont end up with a red colour for the curry. For example, i was making Goan Prawn Curry some days back, the taste was good as expected but the colour was not red as we see in hotels and stuff.
Do we have any way other than adding synthetic colour?
Moreover i have also tried with putting in 1 tbsp of sugar while the oil hottens up…this gives a slight dark colour but not the reddish look as seen in hotels. Please advise.
Answer by sfchef2 try using beet juice. put raw peeled beets into a food processor and strain out the juice also try pure pomegranate juice.
Question by leaf: what are good breakfast foods for diabetics?
I was actually diagnosed with gestational diabetes three weeks ago my blood glucose gets kind of high after breakfast only, lately i have ben eating eggs and sausage but i cant find a yummy cereal or a sugar free yogurt stuff like that. I really miss the sweet stuff .
Answer by Clown hi. sorry about the news. first you should always check the labels on the food boxes before you buy it. most cereals say they are “healthy” but loaded with carbs and sugar.
I enjoy the special K cinamon pecan cereal. but you could always get a healthy good box of regular old cereal and spice it up yourself with some fruit and spices. just make sure you don’t go overboard
if you like pancakes you could always make some of them with fruit in them with 0 carb maple syrup
you could try this recipie if you want too:
Fake French Toast
1 TBS water
1 pkt Splenda
dash of cinnimon
Beat the eggs (by hand is fine) in a small bowl. Add the rest and beat some more. Spray a small fry pan with your favorite spray. Heat on medium high until a drop of water would sizzle. Pour eggs into pan and cover. Cook until set. (Covering the pan makes this light and fluffy.)

Question by Shellshock: How can eat healthy, cheap and tastey on a low budget and not so skilled cook.?
I’m well within the normal range for weight for my age and height, so I don’t want to lose weight. Eating healthy long term can get pretty boring— very boring. All I eat nowadays is whole grain cereal and wheat bread.
Does anyone have any advice to spice things up and change things around without adding tons of sugar and oil and grease?
Answer by Maui No Ka Oi Cook chicken & lots of vegies with garlic & spices in microwave in covered casserole dish without oil. I use oyster sauce & garlic or ginger, onions carrots green peppers tomatoes celery, sometimes I add oyster sauce or shoyu (soy sauce, you can buy low sodium soy sauce, put it all in a covered bowl & microwave no oil, maybe a pinch of salt & black pepper, serve with steamed brown rice. Here’s a good cookbook, I got it on Amazon for $ 4 with shipping: Dr. Terry Shintani’s Eat More Weigh Less Cookbook or The Hawaii diet Cookbook. Also eat steamed (in microwave) potatoes, pumpkins, squash.,sweet potatoes . Eat hot oatmeal with condensed milk & sliced bananas for breakfast. Don’t eat too much bread, it has sugar & lots of starch/carbs.. Avoid white sugar, white flour & salt! Beans are also good, make chilli (real cheap, no need beef use only vegies or chicken).

Question by Ja: Can I skip the marinading part of making baby back ribs?
I keep forgetting to do that, and I was wanting to make them today. I’ve never made them without seasoning them overnight. Think it will turn out ok? I was just thinking about rubbing them with a little bit of brown sugar, olive oil and garlic salt right before I stick them in the oven. I’m making them in the oven and finishing them off on the grill.
