Happy New Year 2012!

This is our traditional meal for New Year's Day for my family and my husband's family too. Sometimes it is a pork roast in the crockpot and other times it's country style ribs like these. I look forward to this meal as my husband doesn't like kraut so I really relish it when I can get it. My Dad made barbecue ribs separately for my husband. (He is so spoiled.) haha
Now, I have another "Ancient Debelak Recipe" at least that's what my Dad calls all his recipes. LOL

  1. Season ribs with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning and sear your ribs in a countertop electric skillet or cooker in a little bit of oil till brown. Now, cook your ribs and onions on medium heat 300 degrees (in same pan) and add water as needed about 1 1/2 to 2 hrs till tender. Add the other seasonings at this time to the ribs that are cooking in pan. Then put your kraut in and let it come to a boil and then turn back down heat and let simmer for 15 minutes.
  2. Cooked potatoes in pressure cooker, then mashed and added butter, salt and pepper.
  3. Cooked up fresh green beans in pressure cooker and seasoned. Oh, bake your rolls too.

  5. Take a guess what football team my Dad (John) is a die hard fan of? hehe
