Beef ribs again.
This time on the WSM, together with a butternut
The beef ribs were lightly marinated with fish sauce and lime juice

While they were slowly cooked it was time for the other ingredients.
I had lots of stuff/verges that needed to be used:

And lots of small onions.
I cooked those whole, with Thai curry, shrimp paste and garlic paste in coconut cream.
Then added potatoes, tomatoes, egg plant, kaffir lime leaves and lime juice.

And I forgot to take pictures of the ready ribs and butternut.
The butternut was soft and very easy to peel. I added it to the curry.
Cut the ribs in pieces (gave the bones to my dogs) and added to the curry as well.

The result:
Everything but the kitchen sink Thai red curry

Final fling! Slow cooked spiced gammon which I turned into several other dishes. This was the cheapest cut of gammon you can buy in the UK (About £5 per kilo which is probably less than $3 per pound). I cooked it in a slow cooker (crock-pot) for 4 hours.

Spiced Gammon with Ravigote Sauce:

Pho with glass noodles and quail's egg (broth from the gammon was passed through a fine sieve to clarify):

Gammon Terrine with Pineapple and Chilli Relish:

Thanks @mike. It was a fun challenge with lots of great entries.

I'd appreciate some suggestions for next month. Off the top of my head are Indian, South and Central America, Yucatan, or Mrs. Hank's idea is Family Favorites. She thought this might draw in more participation, which seems to have been down lately.

Congratulations hank hank
And yes, there were plenty beef ribs in this challenge. I like them and on top of them, they are very well priced here at about 3 U$ per kg ;)
As for the next challenge: I am looking forward to it ;)

I'll go for any of the above - but Family Favourites might bring in more participation although its a bit too broad perhaps? I mean, literally any dish under the sun (puddings, cakes, stews, pizzas, burgers, etc.) could be someone's family fave!

While at work watching the sun come up I got to thinking about springtime, and remembered a friend used to host an annual Tulip Party. Fun event, tasty treats, fresh squeezed lemonade and champagne in abundance. Got me thinking that perhaps garden party brunch or finger foods might be good challenge themes.

Good point. Maybe family favorite dinner dishes? I'll be out and about until noon pacific time, then I'll pick something.

Or maybe the broader the better would go more to the idea of increasing participation. I must sound like an economist. On one hand, on the other .....

Finger foods sounds kinda cool too.

Another option is maybe gluten free?
Getting all the dieters and celiacs to join?
Or baking?
