Roaster Ovens

RoasterOven_IMG_0725I have had a Hamilton Beach roaster oven for quite a long time, using it mainly for pot roasts when the need arises to cook two roasts when company is coming over.  That usually happens a few times every 5 or so years, so the oven does not get much use.  A few months ago I decided to cook a couple of chickens in the roaster oven and they were fantastic.  I just added a can of chicken broth, an onion and some garlic, and cooked the chickens at 350 until done, about an hour and a half.  Tender and juicy.  Did the same for a turkey and it also came out great.  So, on to ribs…

I found a recipe on the Hamilton Beach site for Honey Roasted Spareribs:

  • Ribs – one rack
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbs salt
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp hot pepper sauce (I used chili sauce)

Coated the meat with 1 cup of the marinade and cooked at 350 for an hour.  Then I added the halved potatoes and the rest of the marinade and cooked until the meat registered 160.  Again, the meat was moist and very tender.  Not quite as good as smoked or BBQ’s, but fairly close.

The pictures are of the ribs at the start, and of the finished meal:
