Background: Super Bowl is the big feast at our house. As many of you know, many years ago I was an NFL cheerleader. (TMI: My husband still wants me to wear my cheerleading uniform….um, yeah honey, I’ll get right on that.)
Our whole family loves football, even our kids! Well, maybe they just love the snacks & the commercials!?
There are some days that just have to be “cheat days.” If you’re an avid viewer of “Kiana’s Flex Appeal” ESPN, you know that I use the “cheat day” method: I eat very clean 6 days per week and 1 day per week I enjoy the not-so-clean foods – in moderation. Cheat days are the days you enjoy food.
This is the day that you get to eat in moderation, what you want. Since my husband is a Captain in the Fire Dept. it usually means a zillion guys are over eating and male bonding. This recipe should actually a called a Fit Dad recipe. There are many benefits of having a Fire Fighter hubby, one being the “uniform,” and the other is that 99.9% of them are great cooks.
Since they never know when the fire alarm will go off, they have a huge resource of recipes that can withstand prolonged heating, extra time in the oven and still turn out amazing. If you think about it, those same qualities are great for any Recipe.
Enjoy this one! I don’t usually care for ribs, but these are amazing.
1 liter orange soda – yikes! yes, you heard right. I thought the same thing. No, it’s not a typo.
sliced oranges with peels
gigantic rack of ribs – (My husband cannot help himself, he always says, “nice rack” when we’re buying ribs at the store. It was funny the first 100 times…)
Fill large pot with the orange soda, orange slices and ribs. add enough water to cover. boil 1.5 hours. drain. remove oranges. cover with your favorite low sugar barbecue sauce. bake 350 degrees 1 hour. uncovered.
Meat falls off the bone, so tender, tasty, lick your fingers good. Yum.
