Ribs

Table manners for eating ribs. Spareribs are the thin end of pork ribs from which most of the meat is cut away.

  • The meat that remains on the rib is difficult to cut from the bone, so the bone is held with the fingers of one hand while the meat is eaten.
  • Because spareribs are served with sauce, they are messy to eat and are served only at informal meals (often with a bib).
