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

    Here are the standing pork rib roasts, rubbed with olive oil and seasoned with salt, pepper & thyme.

    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!!
