View Full Version : rib trimming left overs

06-16-2014, 10:39 AM
Yesterday I did three racks of ribs and trimmed them up real well... I took all the pices I cut off to square it up in a foodsaver bag and too the freezer... What do the bretheren do with these leftovers?

I hit mine with salt & pepper and they go on the pit with the ribs some times they are beer snacks for the pitmaster and some times they get used in place of ham hocks in my beans

Yep. Mine get thrown on the smoker with the ribs. Because they're thinner they get done faster. I like to use them as teasers for what's to come for whoever is around.

Get the meat grinder attachment for your stand mixer and make sausage or grind it with chuck & sirloin for hamburgers.

I put them on with the ribs and take them off early for a chef's snack.

Make rib rice with them, just a variation of dirty rice except with rib meat.

I have boiled rib tips until soft, then pulled out the cartilage and bone and used the broth and meat in a killer bean soup.

I rotisseried these over a fire and sliced them up. They are the BEST part!!!

Cook a bunch when I want ribs, but all I have are the tips.

Throw in a bag with some jerk marinade, cook, and put over peas and rice Jamaican style.

Usually will take the left over rib tips from the cook and seal them with the food saver. Sometimes they will end up as a future quick meal or in beans.

I use them to cook down collard greens.

I don't trim them. The full spare is just too damn good not to leave all that lovely meat still part of the whole.
