I either use the bacon ribs to make lentil soup, or, when boiled anr are almost falling off the bone, I remove bones and gristle, put bacon back into pot & add chunks of savoy cabbage,pieces of carrots and quarters of onions, Simmer until vegs are cooked. Serve with crusty bread. Tasty!!!!

The best recipe for Bacon Ribs is plain boiled in a pressure cooker. The trick in the taste is to buy the correct type of Bacon ribs in the first place. The best ribs are the ones that have been rmoved from a cured side of bacon. Some butchers "soak" pork ribs in a salt solution that turns them into a poor imitation of the real thing. So buy the Proper Bacon ribs put them in your pressure cooker bring to heat and leave for 25Min. (Ordinary pan boiling can take up to three hours). Serve them with mushy peas. Another trick is to add salt and sugar when the pease are done this addition can greatly improve the taste, not to much salt as the ribs are salty, the right ammount of sugar is the key, add it slowly till you like the taste

Hi Saundra, i agree with Delboy,I cook bacon ribs a lot.I just soak them over night the just boil them and serve with cabbage and boiled potatoes.I use the stock for soup.As a child ribs and cabbage were a ritual for supper on a Saturday night with buttered bread and Salt Fish for Sunday breakfast with loads of white pepper.
