So earlier this week I was perusing the vast interwebs for short ribs recipes. After seeing a number of awesome looking recipes, an idea popped into my head. Round up these recipes and share them with you! So for now, this will be a new semi-weekly feature on This is so Good… For each post, I will pick a new Tasty Theme and gather some of the best the Web has to offer. After compiling the list, I’ll share it with you guys! If you have any special requests or if you have a recipe that fits the theme, please send them my way!
Now, on to this weeks Tasty Theme: Beef Short Ribs! I absolutely love tender, slow-cooked short ribs. When they are done right, the meat falls off the bones and it is comfort food at it’s finest. There are three types of beef short ribs – English-cut, Flanken-cut, and Boneless. English-cut are separated along the bone and are usually found in two inch pieces. These guys are my personal favorite and I just brought home 25 pounds of them from my farm share. They are perfect for braising or slow-cooking (releasing lots of collagen into the braising liquid) or grilled. Flanken-cut are cut across the bones. I’m not very familiar with this cut, and have never prepared it. It looks to be ideal for braising, but can also be done on the grill (although they may be a little chewy). Boneless are, well, boneless. This cut is good for braising or for slicing thinly and searing.
So now that we know a little more about beef short ribs, let’s get to the recipes!
