I seem to be having a lot of trouble removing the membrane from some fresh babybacks I picked up from the butcher. Since these are my first attempt, I don't care to mess it up. When I try to get the membrane of all it does is tear in little pieces. I grab it with a paper towel to help hold on to it but it doesn't seem to matter. There are some cuts across the ribs on the bone side. Could it be that the butcher has already taken it off? I can slip a knife under the membrane below the bone, slice it , but when I grab and pull, it just rips at the end of the bone. On the WYNTK site it shows the membrane comming off in a long strip. Thanks, any help would be appreciated.
