Country Style Ribs

Country Style Pork Ribs come from the pig's upper rib cage, near the shoulder. They are cut from the blade end of the loin (that is, from the loin, just behind the shoulders.)

They are meatier, and less fattier than many other rib cuts. They look more like porch chops cut in half with a bone through them.

They are usually sold sliced into slabs with between 3 and 6 ribs in them.

Rib purists don't consider them real ribs.

Cooking Tips

Country Style Ribs need slow and low cooking. For cooking instructions and other advice, see main entry for Pork Ribs.
