What is the nutritional value of porkAugust 13, 2012
I'm confused. What's the difference between 'back', 'side', 'sweet and sour', and 'spare ribs'?
Back ribs: these, as you might expect come from the back of the animal, adjacent to the loin, and attach to the backbone. These have the highest proportion of meat to bone, and are considered tastier and more tender than side ribs, but opinions differ. They are definitely more expensive.
Side, sweet and sour, and spare ribs: these are all the same things - except that sweet and sour ribs are cut into strips about 2- inches wide. These ribs lie against the belly (where bacon comes from) and attach to the breastbone.
