No waste by trimming spares to St Louis style

RRPRRP Posts: 21,297
I commented on a thread last night about how I save my trimmings when I cut spare ribs to St Louis style. My post made me hungry so I dug out a frozen package last night. Today for a nice wok meal I salvaged the meat from the trimmings. I am very select and trim extensively. Even at that I ended up with nearly a pound of tender delicious pork!

    Bet that's ll be good. I usually just throw my trimmings on with everything else and eat them early as a chef's treat. I have that same scale, great for weighing out ingredients for sausage. But I also have another one that does smaller increments which I use for weighing out spices.

    Yep, we do the same thing when I trim spares. Except when I'm too lazy to trim them :)

    Waste not want not. My Grandfather taught me at a very young age not to waste anything (he grew up in The Great Depression so there ya go). Very wise man. That is an excellent idea Ron! I will try that next time with my trimmings. Good call! :-)

    thanks - a little generation gap between us as my parents also grew up and suffered through the Great Depression so I was raised to be frugal and still am!
