WHAT ARE SHORT RIBS?
Short ribs are the five short ribs that come from the flavorful chuck section (shoulder) of the cow, near the ribs. Although too short in length to be used for steaks, short ribs have a lot of great meat on them. Because they’re located close to both the chuck and rib sections, short ribs combine the rich, beefy taste of chuck with the delicious marbling of rib steaks.
Short ribs are commonly braised, stewed or slow cooked for fall off the bone beef ribs, but they can also be grilled, and of course, ground for comforting rib burgers.
