It’s such a simple, straightforward meal that requires little time and only dirties one dish (who wants to do any more dishes at this point, right?!). You will find yourself pulling out this recipe again and again during the cold months ahead. It’ll become a new family favorite! There’s nothing like a Guinness stew on a cold day. Unfortunately a traditional Guinness stew can take a bit of time, which I rarely have on weeknights, especially after battling traffic in snow during rush hour. With this recipe in less than 30 minutes, you’ll have a delicious stew that will warm you up inside and out! The only things that can make mussels better are beer, bacon, and smoke. Isn't it nice when it all comes together for you in one big bowl of smoky, spicy flavors? I love eating mussels for dinner during the week because it's packed with protein and comes together so quickly. The new smoked mussels from Pig of the Month make it even easier for you because they eliminate the need for soaking and cleaning the little guys!

Spicy Dry Rub Ribs are smoky and spicy, perfect for your next BBQ gathering! The ribs come out extra tender and juicy, hot off the grill and finger-lickin' good.
It's finally grilling season! Is anyone else as excited as I am about this? I've been busting out the grill almost every single night for dinner and I gotta tell you, that grilled charcoal flavor is what I've been missing since Labor Day. Chicken, vegetables, burgers, steaks, I've been grilling it ALL.
Recently though, I've been obsessed about perfecting dry rub ribs on the grill. I've baked them more times than I can count, but nothing gets that BBQ flavor packed into the ribs like a grill. These ribs are the best combination of spicy and smoky on the outside, with perfectly tender and juicy meat on the inside. Seriously, the meat practically melts in your mouth with every bite.
Your next BBQ NEEDS these ribs. Or even your next weeknight meal! Rub the ribs down and wrap 'em up before you head to work in the morning, then just throw 'em on the grill when you get home. You'll have grilled up ribs in under an hour that'll curb all those BBQ cravings you've been having lately.
INSTRUCTIONS: In a medium bowl, stir to combine salt, brown sugar, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, cumin, black pepper and cayenne pepper.
Rub down the racks of ribs with the dry rub evenly. Wrap the racks in plastic wrap and let rest in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
Heat up your grill to 350 to 400 degrees and rub the grill racks with olive oil. Remove the ribs from the plastic wrap and place directly on the grill. Cook for 40 minutes, turning occasionally, until crispy and cooked through.
Allow the racks to rest 10 minutes before cutting into them and serving.

If you are planning on celebrating St. Patrick's Day in any way this year, do it with these Ultimate Loaded Irish Skillet Nachos made with Pig of the Month BBQ Corned Beef. Forget the corned beef and cabbage (no one really likes cabbage as a side, do they?), these nachos are the best way to honor the land of the leprechauns! Regardless of when St. Patrick's Day falls during the week, you'll always find me celebrating with some corned beef and Guinness. Perhaps it's an homage to my Irish heritage, or perhaps it's just that I'll take any excuse to celebrate life with beer and some seriously delicious meat.
No matter why or how you celebrate this year, you owe it to yourself to include these Ultimate Loaded Irish Skillet Nachos. They are loaded up with thick-cut potato slices, a heaping helping of corned beef, cheese, avocado, sour cream and pickled jalapeños. It's the tastiest St. Patrick's Day recipe you'll come across, just trust us on this one.
And while you're digging in, remember to read what to eat before and after drinking so you can save yourself from a hangover tomorrow (bonus: this recipe covers those for you... Just saying - miracle recipe).
INSTRUCTIONS: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside. In a large bowl, toss the sliced potatoes with olive oil, salt and pepper to coat. Place the potato slices on the greased baking sheet in one even layer. Bake for 15 minutes, flip the slices over and bake for another 15 minutes.
To assemble the nachos, add the potato slices to the bottom of a large cast iron skillet or other ovenproof skillet. Add the corned beef on top, followed by the pepper jack cheese and cheddar cheese. Place under the broiler set to high for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the cheese has melted.
Top with mashed avocado, pickled jalapeños, cherry tomatoes, cilantro, green onion and sour cream. Serve immediately.
