Country style pork ribs, despite the name, aren’t actually from the rib area but rather from the shoulder or blade of the pig.

These ribs are meatier and perfect for slow cooking methods, allowing the flavors to meld and the meat to become tender and juicy.

This dish carries an American tradition, often associated with backyard barbecues and family gatherings, bringing forth a savory, comforting meal that’s simple yet satisfying.

Nutrition Advantages of country style pork ribs:

Country style pork ribs provide a good amount of protein and essential vitamins and minerals like B vitamins and zinc. Slow-cooking allows the breakdown of connective tissues, making the meat easier to digest. Utilizing lean cuts and minimizing added fats can reduce saturated fat intake.
