what to do with corned spare ribs [From Boston Board]

  • s

I was at the local butcher when some guy was special ordering some corned spare ribs. I asked what to do with them, and he said: we make them like corned beef, only they're better. Well, I thought about this for a few days and decided I needed to try them. So now I've ordered a few pounds. If I can't think of anything better, I will just boil 'em up. But any other thoughts?

    1. I'm a HUGE fan of spareribs, and twice I bought these in error. They were horrible failures both times and I boiled once time. Way too salty. I really can't recommend doing anything with them, I don't know how people eat 'em. I love corned beef, by the way.

      1. You boil them in a boiled dinner with all veggies and cabbage... They are delicious!

        1. I wouldn't boil them...I would put them in a roaster on racks with a few inches of water underneath..cover and cook at 325 for a couple of hours. I'd rinse them before putting them onto the racks...Then I'd cut them into two rib portions and bake them or broil to crisp them up a bit..
          I would also ask the butcher where you bought them how they would prepare them..They will most likely know exactly what to do...I've never heard of "corned ribs" before.. Good Luck!!

            Corned ribs are MEANT to be boiled just like Corned Beef. You wouldn't roast a Corned Beed would you?
