We trim our own ribs for competitions, so I usually have several bags of rib pieces in the freezer and I'm always looking for a good way to make use of them. Hence my presence here Partially thawed some pieces so I could remove the bones and cut into strips: I ran through the pieces through my wife's KitchenAid grinder attachment with the coarse plate. I mixed in spices and ran through the fine plate. I did a test fry: I thought it came out quite good, the wife thinks it needs a little more heat so next time I'll experiment with some crushed red pepper and cayenne. I also tried a little maple sausage, it was OK but not as good as the country. My roundabout way of saying thanks to all who have posted their experience here so guys like me can be successful without ruining lots of meat.
