Servings: 4 servings
- 3 cups of water
- 1 cup stone ground yellow grits
- 1 tsp of kosher salt
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- fresh cracked black pepper
- 2 cups rib meat from leftover pork ribs
- 3/4 cup BBQ sauce
In a large pot bring the water to a boil. Next add the salt, cayenne pepper and butter.
Gradually add the grits to the boiling water using a whisk to prevent any lumps.
Lower the heat to simmer and cook for 20 minutes.
While grits are simmering, pick meat from pork ribs and chop. Place in a small saucepan with BBQ sauce and cook on low for 10 minutes.
Gradually whisk the cheese a little at a time into the grits until completely incorporated. Cook another 5 minutes.
Plate with divided grits, topped with BBQ pork rib meat. Garnish with fresh cracked black pepper and chopped parsley (optional).
