Silverskin may be able to breakdown to collagen in some form or fashion but the plural membrane will never ever breakdown. If the anatomy of an animal is similar to that of the human anatomy, the membrane on ribs is the covering on the lungs and that is why there are 2 layers on ribs. The visceral is what we peel away and the parietal is the layer left on the rib that holds the bones in place. I would get rid of the silverskin, it will not add to the meat and will likely take away from it.
