can you sub boneless pork ribs for pork shoulder?

My husband bought a huge pack of boneless ribs from Costco and we don't know what to do with them. Could we sub them for pork shoulder in a slow cooker recipe? The meat looks fairly lean with big chunks of fat or connective tissue on the edges.

Definitely. According to my butcher, those boneless pork ribs are actually part of or very close to the shoulder. I use them all the time. This is a really good recipe by Merrill. Delish!!

That dish, pork stew with white beans and butternut squash, was posted as a kid-friendly meal, but I can tell you that there's no one under 60 in my household and we absolutely loved it.

Lol, Greenstuff. Same in this household. I think the story that went with the recipe was that her daughter LOVED it.

I think so...they're usually cuts of pork from or near the shoulder. Here's a link:

I 'll use them in stews and if marinaded, they're great for kebabs!

I know you already have a recipe in mind, but just in case you still have boneless ribs, you can make pork rillettes (in the slower cooker too). Here's my recipe and it's super easy,

By all means, yes. I do it often when I don't necessarily want the quantity that a shoulder or butt yields. Treat them exactly as you would the shoulder. They cook down in significantly less time than the larger cuts, which is another bonus.

i have bought them at costco too. i would, after you look at some recipes, double wrap and freeze in recipe portions and then you will have some to look forward to. i made some grilled char sieu (pork strips marinated soy, honey, etc.). they are also good leftover served over a chicken broth with noodles and veggies.
