In my local Dominick's yesterday I saw Boneless Pork Loin Back Ribs.   By definition, how do boneless baby back ribs even exist?   Has anyone ever seen/cooked these before?

  • There can be a lflap of meat on spares and loins that they trim off when packaging. This is what the delicious ^#(^ McRib is made from. It's actually good meat. I bet that is what you are seeing.

    I should have taken a picture...   its a full slab and you can see where they cut the bones out.   I may buy them tonight and just toss em on @ 250 and stick a toothpick in every 2 hours or so.  3.99 a pound, but not paying for bones, so why not.

    That cut has been showing up at the nearest market for maybe 10 years. They just call them "boneless baby back." As far as I can tell, its from the muscle that is found on the small side to a "t-bone" pork chop.

    If that is what you have, it is really easy to cook. It can be cooked hot and fast, or low for a couple of hours. My no fail method is a few hours in teriyaki, then a good coat of S&P and garlic powder, and  300, indirect, till center is 145F.

    Don't forget, meat gains alot of flavor from the bone and marrow....

    We saw them at Sam's the other day.  
    stike, probably some marketing guys came up with the term to convince people they were getting a good deal by not having to pay for the bone.  I am with you,  no bones .. not ribs.
