You can make the sub. I would expect the boneless ribs to be fattier than stew meat.

If this is what is on the label, or in an ad circular then it's not really "Ribs" at all...It boneless shoulder meat....Maybe cut into strips? It should be fine for braising methods/dishes etc. If it were pork shoulder they may label them "Country Style Ribs"-- again not really ribs -- just pork shoulder.
