I’m reviewing an item that’s been on sale recently! The Costco Kirkland Signature Seasoned Pork Back Ribs! We enjoyed these over the Easter weekend!
Okay full disclosure here folks. My husband over-cooked these the first time we bought them (or so we thought). He had a hard time getting the barbecue at the right temperature so he said next time he wouldn’t turn on all the burners. Despite being slightly charred on the outside, these were STILL delicious and way better than when he cooked them less! We bought them a second time and he cooked them to perfection (or so we thought) and they weren't at all as tender as when they seemed to be over-cooked. The seasoning on the ribs was very tasty, slightly sweet and smoky. I actually didn’t need any barbecue sauce because the seasoning was flavorful enough. I was a little concerned about the quality of the meat and don’t like a lot (if any) fat in my meat. The ribs were not just all bones and had a decent amount of meat on each bone. The meat was tender without a lot of fat and easy to pull off the bone.
I bought these on sale for three dollars off! The regular price was $16.38, for $13.38 this is a steal of a deal! The ribs definitely fed both my husband and if my husband’s appetite wasn’t so large we would have easily had leftovers.
Warning! These take a LONG time to cook! So if you’re super hungry and pull these out of the fridge wanting to eat them in like a half an hour you’re out of luck. They take about 2.5 hours whether you cook them in the oven or on the BBQ. Also if you’re not a BBQ master you may overcook the ribs like my husband did!
So pork ribs are definitely not the leanest/healthiest choice. Although I don’t have the exact nutrition these are most likely quite high in sodium and fat as well as definitely high in protein! If you’re vegetarian, vegan or don’t eat pork you’ll obviously steer clear of these ribs.
We'd probably buy these again and make sure to overcook them again because they were much tastier!
Do you have a favorite pre-seasoned or prepared meat to buy from Costco?
