Pressure Cooker St Louis Cut Spareribs
You guys love ribs! About a month ago I posted pressure cooker baby back ribs, and it has already cracked my top 10 recipes. 1
After I posted that recipe, I got a bunch of questions about pressure cooker ribs in general. One that came up a lot was “What about St. Louis cut spareribs?”
It was one of those things – I don’t notice something until I hear about it, and suddenly, I see it everywhere. Now, every time I go to the grocery store, I see racks of St. Louis Cut spareribs in the meat case. Then they have a sale – a fantastic sale. It is fate! I grab a few racks and start testing.
What are St. Louis Cut spareribs? They are a slab of pork spareribs with the sternum bone, cartilage and rib tips trimmed off. This cut squares off the ribs, making the slab a flat rectangle. Also, St. Louis cut ribs cook quicker, because we don’t have to tenderize the long-cooking cartilage and rib tips.
If you saw my baby back ribs recipe, this one will look very familiar – it’s the same technique, just a different cut of ribs. To switch things up a bit, I’m using my fancy Espresso Chipotle BBQ sauce this time, but my Easy Homemade BBQ sauce will still work – or use your favorite store-bought sauce.
