There was a dream I once had where I ruled an empire made entirely of delicious barbecue. Seriously, I had a throne made of ham and bacon-weave robes. Imagine my disappointment waking up from that dream only to discover that I was back in the real world.
Well a little bit of that dream, I discovered, is still a delicious reality.
Chimayo Restaurant, located in Park City, UT, has a sparerib CROWN that’s as big as your head.
The ribs are rubbed with spices and grilled over an open flame. They’re then rolled up and tied together before being submerged into a bath of sweet and spicy chipotle glaze. Braised for more than six hours, the ribs are then served over a bed of hominy salpicon verde and topped with onion rings and mashed potatoes.
A meal fit for a king. Or at the very least a really hungry rib lover.
