Country Style Pork Ribs

This week at Tom Thumb, Fresh Pork Shoulder Country Style Ribs are on sale for $0.99/lb. That's a really good deal, so it's time to stock your freezer. The sale price runs through Tuesday, January 27th.

Here's my favorite recipe for country style ribs:

Easy Bar-B-Q Spareribs

3 lb spareribs
1 (14 oz) bottle catsup
1 1/4 C water
1/4 C vinegar
3 T brown sugar
1 T dry mustard
3 T Worcestershire sauce
2 t chili powder
pinch of ground cloves
pinch or garlic powder

Cut ribs into serving pieces; place in a 13 X 9 X 2 inch baking pan. Bake 400 degrees F for 30 minutes. Combine remaining ingredients; mix well. Spoon over ribs. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F; bake and additional 1 1/2 hours or until tender, basting occasionally. Yield: 3 to 4 servings.

  • Choose the least fatty spareribs, in order to get more for your money.
  • Freeze and thaw properly. Make sure the ribs are wrapped well, so they don't diminish in quality while in the freezer. Ideally, the meat should be thawed in the fridge overnight. Finally, don't refreeze meat that has been thawed. If the meat doesn't taste good because of improper storage and handling, it wasn't a good deal after all.
