Ever Seen a Rib like This?

Bought what I thought were baby-back ribs yesterday and there's what must be a 4oz "medallion" attached to the rib.  Meat next to the bone was nice and moist but the meaty portion turned out a little dry.  If I buy these again I'll have to adjust the cooking method or switch to true ribs.  Thoughts?

    No, I haven't seen one like that, but one time me & Wilma went to the drive-in for take out ribs and they were so big my car tipped over!  The whole thing was caught on a security camera.

    one side of the loin is what was origionally called the country rib, thats what it looks like you have, the country rib which contains some darker fatty loin meat, they need to be cooked quicker. later on country ribs where made from a butt.

    Are you sure it was not a roll rib end roast? Looks like it to me.
