La Kitchenette Souris : Greek Ribs & Parmentier Potatoes

These recipes are both absolutely amazing!! Flawless.

They are easy, basic, not to strong in flavor, & sure to become favorites.

I know they will be repeats in my house a lot!!! 

Greek Ribs

8 pounds ribs

1/2 cup butter (use real butter only!), melted
3 Tablespoons lemon juice

2 Tablespoon Greek Seasoning
1 Tablespoon Seasoning Salt
1 Tablespoon Italian Seasoning
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Cut ribs apart (if you bought them in one large piece) & place on buttered baking pans.
Mix melted butter & lemon juice together, then brush onto ribs, covering both sides of the meat equally.
Spritz just a little more lemon juice over the ribs to make sure they are well "soaked".

Mix spices together & sprinkle evenly over both sides of the ribs.

Bake at 400F for approx 45 minutes, turning halfway through.
The liquid on the baking sheet will burn, as you want the ribs to be rather cripsy on the outside, as you can see in my photo.

Parmentier Potatoes

1/2 cup butter (only real butter!)
2 1/2 pounds potatoes, peeled & cubed
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 Tablespoon freshly chopped Parsley
2 sprigs fresh Rosemary, leaves finely chopped
(now I didn't have Rosemay so I used Summer Savory & that was absolutely wonderful as well)
2 Tablespoons olive oil
(I used like 1/4 cup instead & my potatoes were very tender)

Heat butter in a large frying pan, add the potatoes & cook for 5 minutes over a medium heat.
Add the chopped garlic & cook for a further 5 minutes until the potatoes have softened.
Mix in the herbs & cook another 2 minutes.

Transfer to a baking tray.
(I used a little olive oil to grease the side & the potatoes didn't stick or burn that way)
Pour oil over the potatoes, just a little to coat them, then season with salt & pepper.

Bake at 400F for about 30-35 minutes, until slightly crispy on the outside, but soft when you push a fork inside.
