Meat knowledge

Ribs, or spareribs, are the supreme discipline of barbecuing and will have even the most averse to dancing around the barbecue in sheer excitement. And why is that? Because they are simply fabulous when cooked properly.

A perfect crust and so juicy and tender on the inside that the meat just falls off the bone - what more could you want? That's right, nothing! Our pork belly ribs, also known as spareribs, are simply a highlight and also turn out beautifully in the oven.

Ripperl, ribs, spare ribs or peeled ribs?

In Austria, ribs are traditionally seasoned with salt, pepper and caraway and roasted, but the North American method of preparing them with BBQ sauce on the grill or in the smoker is becoming increasingly popular. Spareribs get their name from the USA, in Austria they are known as Ripperl, in Germany they are also called Schälrippchen or Leiterchen.

Although many people use the term spare ribs as a generic term for all kinds of ribs, there are definitely some differences. Spareribs are found where the bones are not so tightly packed together. This means that there is considerably more meat on the ribs.

In this case, the bone is flatter and less curved than in other types. Spareribs can usually be recognised by their characteristic triangular shape. The relatively high fat content makes spare ribs particularly juicy and full of flavour.

What makes our Fitmeat spare ribs the best?

Firstly, the breed of pigs themselves. Unlike other suppliers, our ribs come from Austrian Gustino straw pigs. On an idyllic family farm, the straw pigs have a truly wonderful life. With spacious stalls and cosy resting areas lined with straw bedding, they grow up protected in small groups, have the opportunity to play and be active, can cuddle in the straw and simply feel really good. Slaughter takes place either on the farm or at a nearby butcher's. This minimises stress on the animals and the quality of the meat is correspondingly high.

We recommend one ladder/length per person. There are 2 lengths in one kilogram of spare ribs.

Pigs are extremely intelligent and clean animals. Therefore, species-appropriate and caring rearing is the be-all and end-all for us. A requirement that is also reflected in the delicious taste.

If you compare pigs from factory farms, for example, one thing is immediately clear: due to the constant stress, the meat is much firmer, loses a lot of water when roasted and hardly has any flavour of its own.

For us at Fitmeat, this type of rearing is out of the question for many reasons. We fight for animal welfare and the appreciation of meat products and strictly distance ourselves from immoral factory farming.

After careful and stress-free individual slaughtering of the pigs, our butchers allow the straw pigs to mature on the bone for a few days. The result is juicy and tender pieces of pork with a wonderful meat flavour.
