Where to Buy Baby Back Pork Ribs--Pasadena area
I'd like to cook some ribs this coming weekend but am not sure where to go to buy the baby back ribs. Also, what's a good deal per pound? Smart and Final has them for $3.99/lb and I haven't checked Costco yet. Any other suggestions? regular grocery stores like Ralph's or Von's maybe? I need to buy 10lbs so i'm trying to get a good quality meat at a decent price. Thanks!
I know it's a hassle but I think Costco's baby backs are the best. I have never tried S & F but have tried others & always come back to Costco. If you are going to go to the trouble of cooking ribs, I say go to Costco.
I would go to How's on Huntington and San Gabriel. You might have to call ahead an order of that size, but they carry quality stuff. It'll probably be pricier than S&F and Costco, but nothing crazy like Whole Foods.
i generally buy them from costco, think that they are $2.99/lb. just bought some yesterday at sam's club - $2.69/lb. don't know if you belong and if there are any in your area. enjoy!
My first stop/call would be HOWS market, as that's my default choice for anything meat-related. Just down the street is Howie's Ranch Market. The independent butcher there (I can't recall the name) offers top quality meats as well. Per HOWS weekly flyer, they're $4.99/lb this week, although they're listed as "frozen/defrosted." You could call and ask if they also have fresh.
