Barbecue Pork Soft Bones

Barbecue Pork Soft Bones is a dish of tender Soft Pork Ribs slowly baked and grilled in oven on a spicy sweet barbecue sauce.

Most of the barbecue pork ribs recipe out there uses the hard rib parts but have you tried using the soft bones part of the ribs where it has more fat and collagen content? If not then you better try it as it yields a better flavour and if you cook it properly you the soft bones even becomes softer you can even eat it as well.

Soft bones usually are the first choice for most Asians when they buy their ribs, it’s good with soups, stews and steamed food as it contains more collagen than the normal ribs making it tastier meal. I haven’t seen it on barbecues hence I was intrigued on how it will turn out, but unlike how barbecues are cooked the process here would be different as we will be baking it in very low heat to keep it moist and very tender.
