I have to admit I was looking forward to this beauty before we even started making the smoked spareribs. In fact, while we passed the Costco food isle, I saw this great spare ribs sale and I couldn’t help thinking of what a fantastic sandwich I could make with the leftovers. So, a couple of days later, after feasting on the ribs I finally got around to making this. I wanted to really bring out the flavor of the pork, while adding some classic ‘steak’ flavors on top. So, sautéed mushrooms and sweet chili sauce plus of course a few onion rings for the crunch factor.
- 2 leftover spare ribs with enough meat for a sandwich (The recipe we used will have to be posted another time. Use any old leftover spare ribs you have)
- Half a ciabatta roll
- 3 large mushrooms
- 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced
- 1 tbs olive oil
- 1 tbs chili sauce
- 1 slice of onion
- ~ 1 tps butter for the bread
- 3 roasted garlic
Heat the olive oil in a pan. Add garlic and saute on medium heat for two minutes. Do not burn the garlic. Add, mushrooms and saute for an additional 3-5 minutes. (See pictures)
While the veggies are sautéeing, lightly toast the ciabatta slice and remove meat from spare ribs bone. Spread the butter on the warm bread, then the 3 roasted garlic. Add the meat and then toppings in the following order: sweet chili sauce, thinly sliced onion ring, sautéed mushroom. Sit back and smell the ribs, then consume while hot. Oh boy oh boy oh boy, how good !
P.S. I think Anders is being very liberal with the use of “we”, unless by “we” he means that I spent 4 hours laboring over the grill so that “he” could have meat to spend a whole 10 minutes making a sandwich. I mean what is it about meat that makes men’s eyes glaze over and their saliva glands start running like Pavlov’s dogs? He honed in on that meat at Costco like a bee drawn to honey. Another way that Men are from Mars and Women from Venus 🙂
