St. Louis Style pork is famously named based on the unique cut of the meat, not the preparation. It's all about the presentation of the cut.
These delectable pork ribs are served as a massive, rectangular rack that makes it easy to cook evenly. The cut originated in St. Louis in the mid-1900s and can be found as a staple in barbecue competitions all over the world.
At Seven Sons, we cut our premium pork just like tradition. The cut is from the belly of the pig but doesn't include the sternum bone, rib tips, and cartilage. When these parts are taken off, the rack looks well-formed and flat for easy cooking. The cut itself is less meaty than other rib cuts. At Seven Sons, we offer the cut in 1.75-pound packages.
These ribs taste delicious and tender when baked with a flavorful dry rub, and are perfect for barbecuing. Because of the cut, browning in a pan is easy due to the straight cut. Where rounded racks make frying difficult, this cut the ideal pick for these types of recipes.
