We stopped at Harris-Teeter before heading to Corky’s on Franklin Rd. There was a huge grill outside, with hot babyback ribs for sale!
Can grocery store ribs really be as good as a restaurant’s? We decided to find out…
I wasn’t so sure, but the smoky goodness — and the price — convinced us to try.
Harris-Teeter’s ribs were on sale for $6.99.
A full slab of ribs at a restaurant usually costs at least $12.
Memorial Day kicked off the grill-o-rama.
As we sampled a rib, my husband remarked that he liked his with a little less sauce. No big deal–and we headed in for milk and eggs.
In the checkout lane we saw shoppers’ carts piled with 6, 7, even 10 packs of ribs!
I have always loved Harris-Teeter’s great service. Once again, they knocked our socks off.
Mmmm-mmmm! These ribs were meaty, with very little char or gristle. We both agreed, Harris-Teeter’s babyback ribs compare favorably to Corky’s.
My husband still prefers the Corky’s dry rub over a sweet sauce, but I thought the Harris-Teeter ribs tasted better.
How ’bout that potato salad?
Incidentally, I think Harris-Teeter’s deli potato salad is head-and-shoulders above Kroger’s. It tastes more like homemade, with Hellman’s creamy dressing, a mustardy undertone, and nice chunks of pickle.
