Organic Pork Ribs

Sticky, succulent spare ribs – the perfect finger food

Well known as a deep-south barbecue favourite or a sticky-fingered Chinese classic, organic spare ribs are a versatile cut packed with juicy flavour. Running from the shoulder of the carcass to the belly, pork ribs cut through lots of hard-working muscles and as a result have hearty and robust texture. At The Organic Butchery we supply our ribs in sheets, so you can decide if you want to cook them as a joint or chop them up into individual bones.

At The Organic Butchery, we believe pigs should live in sociable family groups; they should live outdoors for as much of the year as possible and they should be able to rootle with their snouts and wallow in mud. The sustainable, organic system in which our pigs live has animal welfare at its core and produces amazing meat as a result.

Our free-range, organic pigs are bred by crossing Gloucester Old Spot boars with Saddleback sows. We like the characteristics of these traditional breeds: with slow-growth they produce carcasses with a good, even distribution of muscle, fantastic internal marbling and a substantial layer of superficial fat. Lots of high-intensity commercial farming systems have moved away from native breeds because they want leaner meat but we think well-balanced fat on a pork carcass is important for keeping the meat juicy and adding distinctive flavour. Ribs are an excellent example of a cut that benefits from the marriage between substantial meat and an oozy layer of fat: whichever way you choose to cook them, they'll retain succulence.

A whole sheet of ribs sizzling on the barbecue looks spectacular but couldn't be easier to cook. The secret is basting and turning. Slather your favourite barbecue sauce all over the joint, cook for a few minutes on the first side until just starting to brown, then turn and brown the other side. Baste, then turn again, repeating the process to build up a deliciously crisp crust of sauce without blackening it. It'll take about half an hour in total. Alternatively, cut your ribs into individual bones, cover in foil and oven cook them for a couple of hours in a sauce of chilli, soy, ginger and garlic. They'll be falling-off-the-bone tender.
