Home cooks are raving about Woolworths’ mouth-watering pork chops, which can be made from frozen in just 15 minutes flat.
The $14 Slow Cooked Pork Ribs In Smokey BBQ Sauce is the latest offering from the Australian supermarket’s ‘cook’ range, which feature a number of pre-marinated portions of protein.
Customers have also been experimenting with roast beef that is served alongside onion and garlic gravy, pork shoulder with barbecue sauce and butterflied chicken bone in a peri peri marinade.
But it’s the pork that has stopped social media this week, with one man experimenting by putting the ribs in his air fryer.
‘Pork ribs bought from Woolworths in the 5.3L Kmart air fryer… I put them in at 200 degrees for 15 minutes from frozen,’ he wrote on Facebook.
‘They have a delicious flavour and fell off the bone.’
Others agreed that the taste was unparalleled – while those that have yet to try it were ready to ‘stock up when they went back to the supermarket’.
‘These are so good, the only issue is I have to buy two packets because my kids eat them as well,’ said one mother.
‘These are the best. I have had these a lot,’ said another.
And they’re not the only pork ribs causing a stir, with Aldi’s $13.99 Farmwood Marinated Pork Ribs garnering a following too.
A woman from Perth sparked a conversation about the delicious ribs, which are covered in a ‘sweet and smokey’ barbecue sauce.
‘All I can say is wow. Shut up and take my money. These ribs are delicious… so easy to cook and the meat falls off the bone,’ she said.
‘On the plate is one pack, which has one rack so it’s a big serving. You must try them.’
It wasn’t long before other women said they had tried them – and fed them to their families – and would repurchase them again ‘in a heartbeat’.
‘I had these last night. They’re so good. I would be lying if I said I didn’t have the sauce with a spoon,’ one lady said.
‘These are the best ribs ever and I’ve been to the United States to eat them,’ said another.
A third added: ‘My husband loves these and he has tried every other brand’.
They can be found in the freezer section at Aldi, next to the frozen fish and chicken nuggets.
To cook them, place the rack in a baking dish and into the oven for approximately 25 minutes, checking intermittently.
Many of the pork ribs’ fans are pairing the meat with sweetcorn, ‘lots of butter’ and different types of potato.
Others are cutting them up after they’re cooked and putting them in a brioche bun with coleslaw, to create a ‘pulled pork’ burger.
