Pork Ribs Local - How to Cook Pork Ribs
Pork ribs need to be cooked slowly over very low heat, which can be tricky if you're doing them on the grill—but grilling is the best way to cook ribs. You can also cook them in the oven or a slow-cooker, which is easier. When you cook ribs slowly like this, the cartilage breaks down, the fat melts away and coats the muscle fibers, and the connective tissue surrounding the muscle bundles itself, giving the ribs a moist, meaty, juicy feel in your mouth. The meat itself is extremely flavorful, which tends to be the case with the muscles that get more exercise. These muscles are also tougher, but when cooked slowly, the result is fall-off-the-bone tender.
