Enhanced Meats

read a thread here a while ago on the subject so when in the store y'day
checked the label on the babyback ribs I bought recently.....injected with
water,salt and sodium phosphate. That has got to be why they always taste
so "hammy".
I've never liked the things when I fixed 'em,but figured it was just me or
the way I was cooking them.From time to time would go back and try 'em
over again.....jeeez.
Fortunately the spares I but there (at Kroger) don't appear to be "enhanced " and they always taste great.
Will be reading and paying attention to the labels from here on out.
Thanks for the info guys...


  • The Owner of the meat packing co that I get most of my meat told me once
    about how hard it was for him to find Baby backs that weren't "Juiced"
    He said Sams , walmart and most of the super stores ribs were Juiced and
    they wouldn't take the flavor of the Rub, or sause the same way as Natural
