#BetterForBaby 3

It is the most amazing feeling, having my baby in my arms was a completely new experience, her little fingers and her little face was indeed one of those moments when the only thing you want is to freeze it. I that moment I decide the I would make anything to see her grow happy and healthy.

As a mom the only thing we want is the best for our children and of course we have to be like a Mama Gallina, that is what my grandmother always said, it is like a very protective mother, and is not very good sometimes, because be a good mother and make a #BetterForBaby life is to make them experiment and learn, and yes it is difficult I know but, I want to share with you a 3 simple steps to a Happy Future.

1- Lots of hugs.
2- Lots of Kisses.
3- Always say I Love You.

It doesn’t matter how difficult and frustrating life can be if you apply this 3 simple steps, your baby and you will enjoy years of happy moments.

    RUB:
  • 3 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 6 teaspoons brown sugar
    CHIMICHURRI:
  • 1 bunch of parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 bunch of cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 cup vegetable acaite
  • 3 heads garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons coarse salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 bay leaf

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. And with this directions I want to share some very good tips for you.

#GetFiredUpGrilling #GetUpandGrill #weavemade #ad

Wash, with just water and dry very well the ribs, place in a baking sheet line with some paper towels just remove excess water.
Remove the membrane the is located in the back of the ribs, this is a very important stet.

#GetFiredUpGrilling #GetUpandGrill #weavemade #ad 2

Eliminate the paper towel and place the ribs in foil, and remember to use enough to later cover all the ribs. Now prepare the rub, and is so easy just mix the ingredients until well combine and is ready.

#GetFiredUpGrilling #GetUpandGrill #weavemade #ad 3

This next step is also very important, well all of them are important, find some helpers, as you can see my daughters help me with this one, and make the piggy ribs super relax, by massaging the rub nicely and well. This will make a very soft and juicy meat after cooking.

#GetFiredUpGrilling #GetUpandGrill #weavemade #ad 4

Ok, now is ready to go in the oven, let it cook completely cover for 1 and 1/2 hours, and then remove the top foil and finish for 1/2 hour, you can also use this rub and method to prepare the ribs in a smoker, and if you want to use the grill, just place the ribs with the foil for 1/2 after been in the oven for 1 and 1/2.
I know is a little confuse, but it works.

#GetFiredUpGrilling #GetUpandGrill #weavemade #ad 6
After cooking, you can smear some of the bbq sauce on the ribs for more flavor. And don’t forget to make the chimichurri ahead of time, the day before is better, and is very simple just by adding all the ingredients in a bowl and mix until completely incorporated, place in a container with a lid and place on the fridge.
