    Default Pork "country style ribs"

    (I know they are not ribs)

    Bought some today for 99¢ per pound. How best to prepare them to go
    with sweet-n-sour braised red cabbage and spätzle or boiled new
    potatoes? (something Germanic, it's that time of the year)

    Just roast them with a little S&P? Mike Muth, do you have any recipes?
    I could line them all up in a pan and tie them, and pretend they are a
    small roast.

    I should probably go back and get more to fill the freezer while they
    are on sale.

    Marinate them over nite in a zip-loc of oriental orange dressing, then
    light your grill... cook long and slow. Of course you can always
    braise them in kraut with caraway seeds, and a few tube steak for
    flavor.

    Whatever you decide, low and slow. I usually put them in the smoker
    for four or five hours at 250, but the oven will be similar in texture
    if you do it at low temp.

    I have not bought country ribs in years. My experience with that cut is
    that it bone, a lot of fat, more fat, and a bit of meat. IMO it is not
    even worth cooking.

    Bigass™ electric roaster, and cook them on a rack? (I've cooked these
    before, but it has been years)

    grilling show today showed these. they first grilled them.Then they put
    drained sauerkraut in the bottom of a big tinfoil pan. Nestled the ribs
    in. Added one coarsely chopped apple peel and all. added apple cider.
    added what looked like 2 cups of brown sugar. Then baked slow and low.
    It was kinda one ugly brown color when done, but the meat was falling
    off the bone and I gather the sauerkraut was quite flavorful from the
    apple.

    Some are from the pork loin. Those are "real" country ribs. It
    should say on the label wether they are from the shoulder or from the
    loin. But most are from the shoulder - they're cheaper.

    Season heavily and grill over wood/charcoal/lump. These are proper
    country styl;e ribs - from the loin. You can see the baby back rib,
    and that's dark loin meat attached to them.

    But they have great flavor! Sure you have 40% waste, but the finished
    product is cheaper than the higher priced cuts and make for good
    eating.

    My experience, a lot more meat for the buck. When I'm mixing ribs, often
    the country ones are better. I normally grill each, but the country will
    take longer.

    I'm afraid I don't have any rib recipes. We generally don't eat them
    in our family. Now, I do have a cousin-in-law in Germany who did
    something with ribs in sauerkraut. That wasn't bad. She also did
    that with sow belly.

    I 2nd Ed's suggestion. I do mine in the oven, as he describes, most of
    the time. You might try sprinkling with paprika, salt and pepper before
    cooking. I like them with a mustard that isn't overly flavored with
    other spices and with little or no vinegar. This is very hard to find in
    the USA. Anybody know of one. (Yeah, I know, I should mix my own.)

    Making me hungry of the thought. Our new years meal is always sauerkraut,
    with kolbassi, potatoes, and pork, usually lean ribs. Country ribs might
    work in lesser quantity. Usually throw in some dogs too. I usually take
    some kolbassi in a large roll with yellow mustard, the rest goes on the
    plate, with extra kolbassi of course.
    I freeze leftovers.

    Agree! I usually par cook in a low oven for at least and hour, then
    grill them. You can baste with a bbq sauce or make up a different one of
    your liking. I think they're very versatile pork meat.

    They were on sale here recently for 99 cents a pound. We made a big
    batch of Cochinita Pibil.

    I can tell you how I do them. I brown them with coarsely sliced onion
    and then layer in the crockpot with sauerkraut, sliced apple and
    potatoes and some slices of garlic. Also doable in a dutch oven but the
    nice part about the crockpot is we are often gone all day so a great
    meal with falling off the bone meat is ready when we get back.

    You need to find a better supplier of this cut.

    Spare ribs with sauerkraut and potatoes works well in a pressure
    cooker.

    With sauerkraut, chopped apple, brown sugar, garlic , salt and pepper.
    Boiled potatoes on the side. But, you already have a cabbage dish, so
    forget what I said.
