Great Rhubarb Meat Combos And Sauces

Did you ever think you could have a rhubarb-supper instead of rhubarb just for dessert? You certainly can. Meats combine beautifully with this sour vegetable to produce some pretty tasty main meal meat dishes. The rhubarb can serve to enhance or tone down certain flavors.

It is frequently used as a glaze or sauce to combine sour and sweet tastes, or to counteract a strong taste.

I think it just adds some life to the plain meat dishes we are accustomed to serving daily.

Try some rhubarb for dinner tonight for a change!

3 lbs. short ribs
1/3 cup water
salt & pepper to taste
1 large diced onion

I like to boil my ribs a bit beforehand, to get rid of any fat. I slow simmer them in a large pot for an hour at least. Drain ribs, and place in a shallow baking dish.

Spread them out so that they don't overlap. Sprinkle salt, pepper and onion over top.

Cover with foil and bake at 300F for 2 1/2 hours.

Baste with any rhubarb barbeque sauce and let cook another 40 minutes uncovered to glaze.
