The Instacart guide to short ribs
About top short ribs
Meaty, succulent, tender, and juicy beef short ribs are ideal for braising, simmering, and smoking. Beef short ribs have quite a bit of fatty meat on them, but they also have a lot of connective tissue, making them tough and chewy unless cooked properly. English-style beef short ribs have been cut parallel to the bone, and the ribs can be boneless or have a bone with the meat. Beef short ribs that have been cut across the rib bones are sometimes called flanken.
There are two types of beef ribs: back ribs and short ribs, sometimes called plate ribs. Back ribs are comprised of 13 ribs with meat between the rib bones. The first five ribs are called chuck ribs, and the next seven ribs are back ribs.
Beef short ribs look similar to pork spareribs in that the short ribs are flat with the meat on one side of the rack of ribs. Beef short ribs come from the chuck and primal sections of a cow, are usually cut into three or four sections. Beef short ribs are longer than pork spareribs because a cow has a larger rib cage than a pig. Most beef short ribs are cut into 3 to 4-inch lengths, making them ideal for placing in a slow cooker or oven-proof pan.
