Wednesday, July 1, 2009 - Safeway's Weekly Specials

Its Wednesday and its not just any ordinary "look at food that is on sale" Wednesday. Its a Wednesday before a holiday and the sales do NOT disappoint. Porterhouse steak for $4.49 a lb. Eight sweet white corn cobs for $2! (Have you ever eaten corn on the cob with butter and a sprinkle of garlic salt? YUM.)

The most exciting item is pork ribs for $0.99 a pound. While volunteering with N Street Village recently, I met this older gentleman who was cooking for a special event at the center. He was frying some chicken wings and they looked and smelled amazing. He fried them until they were a golden brown with no burnt spots anywhere. They were all uniform in color. It was like magic. We started talking about cooking and he kindly shared his BBQ pork rib recipe. He seasons his ribs, wraps them in foil, and slow bakes them in an oven at 375 F for 3 to 4 hours. He unwraps them, covers them in bbq sauce (he mixes regular bbq sauce with pineapple juice, hot sauce, etc.) and then puts the ribs back in the oven until the bbq sauce is baked on. I tried out the recipe about a month a ago and they were ridiculously tender . The meat just fell off the bone. Looking back, maybe I should have gotten this gentleman's number. I bet he had a killer recipe for macaroni and cheese.
