Pork ribs beckon for the good things in life: rich flavor, perfect texture, a glass of red wine. Versatile not only in taste but also preparation, they can be eaten gleefully by hand (re: messy and saucy and hey don’t judge us) or as the heart of your next dinner party.

Do you prefer an unfussy bone-in rack? Pick up some babybacks to showcase their tenderness. Looking for something that begs to absorb its surroundings, perhaps for a stew? Try country style spare ribs (they have a good combination of light and dark meat). Regular spare ribs are ideal for any dish that requires braising. Whether you are cooking for a party of one or a whole table of hungry piglets, pork ribs are the little luxury we all need sometimes.

In celebration of our annual Piglet Tournament of Cookbooks, here are nine pork rib dishes to stick to your ribs:
