Default We've all looked at these at least once and thought "Maybe?" Wal-Mart Beef Ribs


So I gave these ribs a shot and an unbiased review for anyone that hasn't tried them and wanted to know.

Are Wal-Mart Beef Ribs Worth It?

We’ve all looked at them, held the pack, put em back, picked em up again, walked away…. This video will help you know once and for all if whether or not you should pull the trigger and purchase some Wal-Mart beef ribs.

Ingredients:

1 Pack Wal-Mart Beef Ribs
Hot Sauce
Salt Pepper

Method:

Rub all ingredients on the ribs. Smoke around 275°F for 4 – 5 hours or until desired tenderness.

Notes:

All in all they tasted pretty good. With all the shrinkage you see due to high fat low muscle fiber you end up with just about what you paid for. There does seem to be a good amount of cartilage marbled through these ribs as well that when cutting will make them seem a little tougher than they really are. I just ate around it with little or no problems.

Hmmm... Never seen "short ribs" at any of the WalMart's around here, just back ribs. Those are mighty thin, what were they charging for those?

Here in WV I've been unlucky with finding actual Full plate of short ribs. I've made walmart beef back ribs on a few occasions. They turn out good, but the cartilage always kept me from enjoying them. For the money I'd rather spend a couple extra dollars and get a chuck roast. I have a choice with a chuck roast, I can either pull it or slice it.

I don't believe those to be short ribs.

For 9 bucks I might take a chance on them. Just for me. Sometimes you just need a bone to naw on.

The real stuff is $8.99/lb at Costco so sometimes I pull the trigger on a pack of these bones at $2.49 a pound. Always a good testing meat when doing new stuff on the pit.
