    We did a pre-Thanksgiving dinner with my wife's side of the family and I made a full blown Thanksgiving dinner while at my Mom's house, so today the menu is:

    Standing pork rib roast w/ raspberry sauce
    Long grain and wild rice
    Acorn squash

    Have a GREAT Thanksgiving dinner everybody!!!!!!!:thumb::thumb:

    The pork was awesome, the squash was excellent. The wild rice concoction got mixed reviews and the raspberry sauce was not well received...too tart.
    Still, a great Thanksgiving dinner!

    Beautiful!!
    I'm not sure what your raspberry sauce was, but I've been using a raspberry chipotle (this is the stuff!!) on ribs, tenderloins, chops, anything pork and most people can't get enuf of it. I also use a sweet rub with cinnamon.
    Nice presentation! I'm drooling!!

    2 tbsp. butter, cut up
    2 tbsp. red wine vinegar

    1/8 tsp. salt

    Reserve 1/4 cups raspberries for garnish. Add remaining raspberries, thyme and 1/2 cup stock to skillet. Bring to boiling. Lower heat; simmer 2-3 minutes until raspberries are reduced to saucy consistency.

    Force raspberry mixture through strainer with back of spoon; discard seeds. Return puree to skillet. Stir cornstarch and remaining stock in bowl until smooth. Stir into puree. Bring to boiling, stirring. Lower heat 2 minutes.
    Off heat, stir in butter, vinegar, lemon juice, sugar, salt and reserved raspberries

    I get it at Costco. This particular brand is Fischer & Wieser The Original Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce. It's sick how good it is!!
    I've found other brands at Safeway and not sure if King Soopers/City Market is in your area but if you look in the aisle with the marinades and BBQ sauce you might find a decent version.
    This summer I made a pile of babybacks and dry rubbed and BBQed them. I usually just have some bbq sauce for dipping but used this chipotle sauce instead. They got pounded!! I had to hide a few racks for the people coming later. Everybody said it was the sauce. I know it was the ribs but I'll defer to the sauce.
    Mark Walker's version is most of the same ingredients except for jalapeno peppers, chipotle and chile peppers and natural smoke flavoring. Now that you got me going on this stuff, I think I'll put it on some leftover turkey tonite, instead of cranberry sauce. I'm psyched!
    Let me know if you find it. This shit is good!

    Thanks Mark and powderglut. I think that a chipotle version would have been much better than what I made, which was more like raspberry jam. I will try Mark's recipe and also look for it at Costco the next time I'm in there.
    Mark, have you made this recipe before? How come you haven't been including it in your care packages?!!!!!!

    I usually add one or two of those yellow peppers I send you to the raspberry sauce, but you oink them down so fast they don't make it anything.:rofl:

    Shoot, I just told my son-in-law that when we get home tomorrow, that he needs to take a ride up to Costco. Says he'll stop there one day on his way home from work this week. Sounds deliciously tasty!
