Bone at top of ribs

Recommended Posts

Got these pork spare ribs at Kroger. While trying to trim St. Louis style, ran into a bone in top portion that felt connected to rib bones. What is this, and what’s best way to cut it? Do we need to cut through bones or could I be mistaking tough tendons for bones? Just watched about a dozen different rib trimming videos but none of them seemed to show a bone in this location

It is the chine bone. Find the rib that sticks out the furthest at the top and cut laterally across the rack of ribs to remove that stuff at the top. That is a STL cut. There's good meat on the part you just trimmed off, debone it or cook it as is.

Thanks Mr Cue, Iv'e seen ribs like this before and didn't know what the heck it was...  I just squared the ribs off, and cut that bone off.
