Stockyard Australian Black Angus Beef Short Ribs
Short ribs come from the beef chuck portion of a beef animal. They are the five (5) short ribs from the chuck section that are too small to be used for good steaks. So, in short, short ribs are just that: short ribs.
Essentially, when a beef animal is harvested and broken into sections, the first five rib bones go into the chuck section, not the rib section. We do that because, as mentioned above, these first 5 rib bones are short bones and donÕt make for good steaks. The meat in between these bones is from muscle that is used heavily, and therefore has less tenderness but much more flavor.
Can be cut into English-style chunks or flanken style BBQ ribs slices.
