BQ Ribs with Rice


BQ Ribs with Rice and the
side dish is Green beans with
slivered almonds

We are going to give ourselves a little break since
its a Monday =D The BQ ribs are from Costco
already made...you just need to cook
it up and its oh so yummo!! 25 minutes
in the oven and you have some delish
BQ ribs! Here is the recipe for the
green beans with almonds


  • Coarse salt, to taste
  • 2 lb. slender green beans, trimmed
  • 1/2 cup slivered blanched almonds
  • 2 Tbs. unsalted butter
  • 1 Tbs. olive oil
  • 4 shallots, thinly sliced
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tbs. chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley


Fill a large pot three-fourths full of lightly salted water and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the green beans and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain in a colander, rinse with cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Set aside. (The beans can be prepared up to this point 1 day in advance, covered tightly and refrigerated until ready to use.)

In a large fry pan over medium heat, toast the almonds, stirring continuously, until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

In the same pan over medium heat, melt the butter with the olive oil. Add the shallots and sauté until translucent and beginning to brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Increase the heat to medium-high and stir in the beans. Sauté, stirring continuously, until heated through and beginning to brown, about 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and stir in the parsley and almonds. Transfer to a warmed serving bowl and serve immediately.
