Junk Ribs

Not really sure what these are, they were generically called beef ribs, and were cheap.  They have been in my freezer, in baggies with off the shelf jerk marinade, for I don't know how long.

Done PS legs up, drip pans, and grid, at 230 for one hour when the top set read at least 160.  The bottom set took another 20 minutes to be reliably up to internal temp.  Last time I tried these we took them off too early, and they were tough.

Actually pretty darned good, and the sauce thickened up nicely.  Tender and flavorful, but about 95% fat and bone to meat.  Not sure I'll bother again.

    Those look good to me doc!  When I do a standing rib roast, I always love the bones.  A couple of times I have saved the bones from a rib roast after carving, then threw them back on direct a day or two later and sauced.  They are quite fatty...but then again so am I. 

    I'm guessing those are the same thing...the bones they cut a way when they sell bonesless ribeye roast.  I might try to find some of these junk ribs myself! 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Not so bad. There clearly is some meat there.

    Did the jerk flavor become more intense after the period frozen?

    There's a place not far from me that sells whole steak sections, strips, rib-eye, etc. On occasion they will offer boneless rib-eye steak, which they cut out of the whole section. Then they sell the rack of bones reallll...ly cheap. First time I saw the sign saying .79/lb, I asked for 10 lb. Found that I had maybe a pound of meat. So little on the bones that much of it burnt. Kind of like jerky on a bone.

  • Don't know about intensified, but was thick and sweet and tasted pretty good.  Took about 5 big ribs to make a meal.  We freeze marinated meats a lot.

  • Revisited.  Foiled and reheated, these were pretty darned good leftovers.  I think I would do these again, just recognize they aren't steaks, they're ribs with a fair amount of bone, fat, and gristle in ratio to the meat.

  • Doc, you must have the most interesting freezer in the country, you are always pulling something good out of it, mine is mostly frost and mystery meat.....

    Looks good.
