Burger King to Add Pork Ribs to Menu

Since all things pig — from chicharrones to bacon everything to whole hog dinners — are the rage right now, it only makes sense that the fast food industry wants a piece of the pork pie. At this week's World Pork Expo, Burger King announced that it's testing out "Fire-Grilled Ribs" in four different markets and hopes to expand by next year.The ribs are now available in Las Vegas, NV, Indianapolis, IN, Greensboro, NC, and Orlando, FL. The St. Louis-style ribs will be portioned into 2-inch pieces, offered in three-, six-, or eight-piece servings, and served with a dipping sauce. The fast food company has spent more than a year developing this new product with the National Pork Board. According to the board's president Steve Weaver, Burger King's goal is to offer the product in nearly half of its US restaurants in 2010.

Acutally, I think the McRib is a decent following. Despite it not tasting like ribs at all. Or even looking like it. I really don't think McD was going for authentic there. Anyway, if that's what the BK ribs actually look like, then it seems like it could be okay. Not great.

Lame, lame, lame. I'm sorry, but ribs are not a fast food.

@Pharm-Chick: I agree that there aren't so many veggie choices out there, but you also have to consider their target markets. Vegetarians tend to be a bit more health conscious, so most probably won't be considering Burger King when making meal choices. Furthermore, when the "Supersize Me" film hit and fast foods places were scrambling to improve their image, Burger King took the opposite approach. Instead of coming out with healthier menu options, they started introducing fattier options. I guess they were banking on the fact that there were are people out there who were unfazed by the negative health affects that the film addresses.

I'm probably one of the few people who don't enjoy eating ribs. I had the McRib when it came out, but it wasn't the greatest.

man, one more thing i cant eat there. they should realize that there are a good amount of people out there that eat vegetarian, or cant eat meat unless its kosher or whatever... so they should add some more veggie dishes!

Yeah, ilanac, I was just thinking "Are these going to be anything like the McRibs?" Because those were just plain disgusting.

I find it impossible to turn down a St. Louis-style rib! I'd give it a go if it came to my area.

I have a weakness for Burger King. Although I know these probably won't be any good. I will have to try them for myself.
