The Big Game (the battle for pro football supremacy), is the perfect reason to gather with friends, cheer on your favorite team and celebrate the victory or the agony of defeat with delicious food, including precooked ribs, while washing it all down with your favorite beverage. BBQ meals are the perfect solution for dealing with those hungry fans on game day, so why not plan a barbecue at home for your next big game?
Precooked ribs make creating the perfect BBQ meal easy. Simply heat and serve delicious Tony Roma ribs on the grill, under the broiler, or in the oven. Guests will love grabbing the savory ribs off the table, eating with their hands as they cheer on their team. Be sure to have plenty of napkins on hand, because Tony Roma’s ribs are not meant to be eaten with a knife and fork.
Start with Appetizers
Of course, while your precooked ribs are heating, you need to keep your hungry guests satisfied, so be sure to have some appetizers on hand. One easy suggestion is cheesy queso dip. Mix your favorite cheese in a bowl with salsa and heat until cheese is melted. You can even add a can of chili for additional heartiness, and serve with tortilla chips. Quesadillas are another great BBQ side dish. Throw a corn tortilla in a frying pan for a few seconds, flip to ensure both sides are heated, and sprinkle on some shredded cheese. Heat until the cheese is melted, and then sprinkle with grilled chicken, grilled steak, or even some of Tony Roma’s barbecue pork.
Of course, once you serve those ribs, you need some delicious BBQ side dishes to go with them. If you decide to grill your precooked ribs, try grilling some fresh vegetables on kabobs, such as zucchini, summer squash, endive, radicchio, mushrooms, onions, and peppers. Brush them with olive oil and seasonings, such as chili powder or garlic. Of course, beans make the best barbecue pork side dishes for BBQ. Whether you create a barbecue bean salad or create your own famous baked bean recipe, you can never go wrong with beans at the Big Game.
Macaroni and Cheese
Any discussion of BBQ side dishes would be incomplete if it does not include at least one adult version of macaroni and cheese. Although there is nothing wrong with mac and cheese made with American and cheddar cheese, try to liven it up a bit with some Fontina, Emmenthal or Gruyere cheeses. Add some chilies and spices to give the dish a kick that will go great with those pre-cooked ribs or Tony Roma’s barbecue pork.
