Ribs are a cut of pork (or beef, etc.) from the loin or side.  Pork ribs come in three basic cuts—back ribs, spareribs and country-style ribs—depending on the section of the hog where originated.

Back Ribs - A cut of pork from the blade and center section of the loin.  Also called baby back ribs because they are smaller than spareribs.

Country-Style Ribs - A cut of pork from the rib end of the loin.  Country-style ribs are sold as either “slabs” (one piece) or in individual pieces.  They are the meatiest variety of ribs.

Spareribs - A cut of pork from the belly of the hog.  This variety has the least amount of meat per bone, yet a favorite because of their delicious taste.  Plan one pound per serving.
