Common Cuts of Pork
Although not as meaty as baby-back ribs, spare ribs are very tasty, thanks to a generous amount of fat. Large and irregularly
shaped, they come from a pig’s underbelly or lower rib cage (also the source of bacon). A full rack has at least 11 ribs and
weighs 3 to 4 pounds (which should feed 2 or 3 people).
Best for: Roasting, grilling, and braising.
