The Art of Food - or what we had for Sunday supper :)

Pork Ribs with Strawberry Balsamic Reduction Glaze.

Shari of Sharilynn Studios mentioned
today that she was having pork tenderloin with Strawberry Balsamic Reduction sauce for dinner. This set of a whole flurry of fellow artists (artists gone wild) having some sort of "reduction" for Sunday dinner. I decided on Ribs with the Strawberry Balsamic Reduction to glaze the ribs. Start off with ribs, strawberries, honey and vinegar (recipe below) Start basting the ribs when they are about 1/2 way cooked.

Then you have to have the right seasonings. I seasoned the ribs as they were slow cooking. Garlic cloves, thyme and rosemary to taste. I also used freshly ground pepper and sea salt.

The end result. Strawberry Balsamic Reduction Ribs and on the side....tossed greens with pear and blue cheese dressing

Recipe for Strawberry Balsamic Reduction Sauce:
1 cup diced strawberries
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup honey
Place diced strawberries in a small sauce pan. Add vinegar and water. Bring to a boil and reduce by 1/2. Add honey and reduce by 1/2 again. When the ribs are about 1/2 way cooked drain off any liquid. Start basting the ribs and continue to cook until done.
I made a very large slow cooker of ribs so I doubled the strawberry recipe.
