What really are country-style pork shoulder ribs?
These aren’t actually ribs and they are boneless.
I’ve mentioned before, pork is a popular meat in Bulgaria.
This is where I have some of my pork recipes from.
Since living in the States, I don’t cook pork very often.
But I enjoy making pork chops, stews or kebabs from time to time.
The pork shoulder ribs are so versatile and can be used in various recipes.
The meat is juicy and tender, if properly cooked, due to the amount of fat that they contain.
They worked great for grilled pork kebabs, I might share the recipe with you in the future.

When I saw some country-style pork shoulder ribs at the store, I was excited to give them a try.
My grandmother used to slowly roast them in the oven (in a baking dish covered with foil).
You can use different techniques to cook these – slow cooking over low heat or grilling over high heat.
Since it is grilling season and I’ve been cooking dinner on the grill almost every day, I know I had to grill these babies.
I rubbed them in a simple sweet and spicy rub and let them season in it for 1 hour.
Then I grilled the ribs over medium heat for a while, until fully cooked.
You guys know, you can make salsa with pretty much any fruit.
Blueberries and peach isn’t only a great combination for desserts, but it was the perfect topping for these grilled country-style pork shoulder ribs.
Charred and flavorful meat, topped with delicious fresh fruit salsa.
