I am dying to try a few dishes that use bacon ribs....any suggestions for an online source? Thanks - Steve
"Bacon ribs" doesn't sound like anything I've ever heard of. Bacon, as a cut of pork, isn't usually off a rib. :) Can you describe it a little more? Maybe I"ll just google it. :)
From what Google tells me, bacon ribs are a product of curing pork and the attached ribs like bacon. The ribs are then separated and sold by butchers in the UK. It sounds like their use is similar to a ham hock or salt pork (boiling for flavor in soups, stock, etc).
I only found one online source, and I'm not sure if they ship to the US:
I'm curious why bacon ribs would be worth the expense and effort over using a ham bone or even a slab of bacon?
