Easy BBQ Pork

Babyback Ribs

Chili Dog Rollups

Roasted Pork Loin and Potatoes


Easy BBQ Pork Sandwiches


1 Pork Roast or Pork Tenderloin

1/2 Cup Water

Salt and Pepper


Cook in crock-pot for 8-10 hours until done.  Cut up pork and toss with BBQ sauce.  (See recipe for wonderful BBQ sause under Sauces/Gravies.)


Babyback Ribs
Rack of babyback ribs (cut in half)
Seasoning rub (your choice - optional)
BBQ Sauce (your choice or see my BBQ sauce recipe)
Rub spices on rinsed ribs if you choose to do so.  Wrap ribs in foil.  Bake at 325° for 1 1/2 - 2 hours.  Remove from foil pack and place on hot grill.  Turn to low.  Grill for 30 - 40 minutes.  They are ready when they start to fall off the bone or break apart.  Brush BBQ sauce on both sides and remove from grill.   (Gauge 1 - 1 1/2 pounds per person.)



Chili Dog Roll-up

 10 hotdogs

10 flour tortillas

Grated Cheese

Chili (homemade or canned)

Chopped Onion


I started with Kathy Patterson’s chili roll-up recipe and added hotdogs for a great quick meal.


Water down chili.  Place 1 hotdog in a tortilla, strain chili where you’re adding mostly beans and meat and pout a spoonful or two on top of the hotdog.  Add some cheese and a little onion and roll the tortilla, placing seam side down in a casserole dish.  Continue until all 10 are rolled.  Pour the juice from the chili on top.  (It’s ok if it has some beans and meat in it.)  Cover with grated cheese.  Place in the oven at 350º for 10-15 minutes until cheese is melted.  Serve.


Herbed Roasted Pork Tenderloin and Potatoes

3-4 pound pork tenderloin

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 ½ teaspoons dried thyme

Salt and pepper to taste


Mix herbs and spices.  Rub on tenderloin.  Place in shallow roasting pan.  Cover with aluminum foil.  Bake at 325º for 1 hour.



6-7 potatoes (peeled and quartered)

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 teaspoons chives

½ teaspoon garlic powder

Salt and pepper to taste


Boil potatoes for 10 minutes.  Drain and let cool.  Add olive oil, herbs and spices.  Stir until coated evenly.


Place potatoes around the tenderloin and bake an additional hour.  Slice tenderloin and serve.
