FAQs about pork ribs

The answer is both. You can find every pork rib cut available freshly butchered and ready for cooking. Some grocers will French-cut the ribs or assemble the crown roast, usually around the holidays. French-cut refers to the trimming off of the meat on the backbone, leaving the bone bare but the loin meat still attached. A crown roast stands the entire rib roast on its side and forms a circle by connecting both ends. The bones point upward after assembly and resemble a crown.

Spare ribs and baby back ribs can be found in the frozen meat section of your grocery store, as well as cut fresh. They come in full racks cut at the processing plant and are vacuum-sealed before being frozen and distributed. 

Any meat can be braised, but most chefs agree that braising pork ribs isn't recommended, especially with the roast and chop cuts best prepared grilled or broiled. You can braise whole racks, but the result won't have the caramelization you find when traditionally grilled. Part of the appeal of a rack of pork ribs is the finger-licking of the sweet, sometimes spicy, barbecue sauce and the meat's crispy texture.
