Pork South Texas Ribeye
Dec 4, 2011. HEB, a grocery store chain that’s around where I live, is selling what they are calling “Pork South Texas Ribeyes” for US $1.94 / lb., which is pretty cheap. I’ve grilled pork chops before, and they’re alright, but they seem to very often come out a little dry and bland. This so-called “South Texas Ribeye” was a very pleasant surprise. I bought a pack of six of these things not really knowing what I was getting into.
I smeared it in olive oil and a little salt, and then grilled it 6 minutes on each side, then put it onto a piece of aluminum foil on the grill to keep it from charring too much and put a little bit of K.C. Masterpiece barbecue sauce on it, and let it go for another 4 or 5 minutes. I thought about adding a touch of sriracha as well, but decided against it for now. Maybe next time.
I also cooked a combo of sliced onions, squash and potatoes in a foil packet on the grill (total about 40 mins, flipping every once in awhile) and warmed up some Bush’s “grillin’ beans”.
This “south texas ribeye” turned out way better than I expected it to. Imagine the best pork chop of your life, and that’s pretty much how this turned out for me.
Awesome meal. There will definitely be more South Texas Ribeyes in my future.
