Recipe Notes

Change it Up:
Substitute beef ribs in place of the pork. Just a quick note though - the pork ribs have a lot more fat on the ribs that renders well to make the ribs very soft and tender. Beef doesn't have even close to the amount of fat. You may want to check on them earlier so that they don't get tough or dried out.
