Baby back ribs: Baby back ribs, also called back ribs, loin ribs, or loin back ribs, are cut from the area of the ribs closest to the backbone (above the spareribs) of mature hogs. They can be cooked like spareribs, but watch the clock: They will become tender more quickly because they are smaller and leaner. Depending on how the animal was butchered, racks of baby back ribs can contain anywhere from eight to 15 bones.
