How to Buy Bone-In Pork Rib Roast

If you plan to make our Slow-Roasted Bone-In Pork Rib Roast, here's what to look for when you visit the butcher.

When making our Slow-Roasted Bone-In Pork Rib Roast, you’ll want a 4- to 5-pound center-cut roast with a fat cap that’s 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. But you might have to go one step further at the butcher counter, as some roasts come with the chine bone attached. Ask the butcher to remove as much of this bone as possible to facilitate carving.
