Roasted BBQ ribs, fries & coleslaw

With summer just around the corner, there are those recipes you just enjoy eating in the sun on a terrace in front of your house. One of those dishes for me are the roasted barbacue pork ribs with a side of fries and fresh coleslaw. Just so happens that friends of mine came from Canada today and I surprised them with this spicy summer dish. πŸ™‚

Even though it’s May, Zagreb is filled with tourist from all over the world, and with temperatures over 30Β° C peaople are heading to the famous Jarun lake or Bundek lake where they can grill food outside and enjoy a couple of beers with friends and family. There are even those brave enough who take a dip in the lake when the heat beacomes unbarable. There are also many of us who have vacation houses just outside Zagreb where we grow vegetables and fruits, and these days those houses are like a piece of paradise where you can run away to.

So I was just wondering how many of us are out there today who love bbq ribs?Β The history of BBQ ribs is as diverse as BBQ itself. It’s interesting that it all began in the Caribbean, traveled north with the Spanish Conquistadors, moved overseas to the Americas, and then seasoned with flavors of European settlers we got the first versions of BBQ ribs.

    I really like barbecued ribs and make them several times a year, but I have never considered flavoring them by adding onion and peppers. Must try that. Thanks for the idea.

    Apart from the ribs, your coleslaw really caught my attention – the mix of red and white cabbage looks stunning, and it’s so finely cut, too! I’ll have to mix red and white, never done that before.
