Here's the thing, if you treat grass fed short cut beef ribs with a little "TLC" such as brine and beer, it can transform into a piece of beef that is truly amazing. 

Beef Short Cut ribs are a less expensive cut of beef that require lots of time to cook. They are easy to prepare.

Recipe notes

We mainly sell Short Cut Ribs cut in half, however this recipe is designed for Whole Short Cut Ribs. You will require one per person if a main meal.

If a share platter use less beef and let the meat cook a little longer so it falls off the bone. Serve boneless meat on a platter.

The Beef also works beautifully taken from the bone and served in a grain salad.
