Expert Tips

Substitute regular pork loin back ribs in place of the smoked ones in this recipe if you prefer.

Be sure to ask your butcher to cut the ribs lengthwise across the bones when purchasing them for smaller, party-food pieces.

Skim the fat from these ribs with a spoon, or place a slice of bread on top of the mixture for a few minutes to absorb the fat.
