I cooked a slab of St. Louis spares last Sunday and something strange happened while eating one of the ribs, and it happened again today as I was trying another one on the way back to work. While taking a bite from the rib I got a piece of the bone in the same bite. It was on the cartilage end and the bone was extremely soft, easy to bite through, same texture as the meat. What would cause this?
Old meat, frozen to long? The spares were not in cry-o-vac but rather wrapped in plastic, in one of those foam trays that you see in Grocery stores, packed by them. Any ideas?
