Dark Fluid Oozing out of Sparerib Bones
I bought some frozen st louis pre-cut spareribs from the local grocery store who had them on sale for the summer holiday (I asked for fully-frozen packages in the back). I am about 90 minutes into the cook and they are oozing dark liquid from one end of the bones, which is something I haven't seen before with fresh spareribs (see photo).
This is an experiment, trying a couple of different rubs on two halves today. Any idea what this is? I am guessing that this is marrow (but I do not know), and maybe it because they froze them after they cut them to st louis style? Someone else guessed that this might be a sign that they were frozen and thawed and refrozen. Should I just chuck them?
