Bacon Ribs suggestions ?
« on: 14 December, 2021, 10:00:52 am »
I've been given a small (0.6kg) pack of bacon ribs.    My mother cooks these on their own in the pressure cooker, and they are always lovely, if a bit salty.

What else can I do with them ?   I've got lots of lentils to use up, so some type of soup or stew ? 

They'll be going in the Instant Pot,  which can be used as a pressure cooker or slow cooker.

A lentil and ham soup would be my choice. Pressure cook / boil / roast the ribs, then strip and shred the meat. Add to your usual lentil soup mix, test for saltiness.

ETA: Can also put in a leek and potatoe soup, either blitzed or lumpy.  Last time around I fried off the leeks with the bacon (I used lardons I had handy in the freezer), added the pots and stock, cooked, them blitzed until smooth.
