Beef short ribs, English-cut
Short ribs are the meaty ends of the beef ribs from the chest and front of the cow's shoulders. The cut has an unbeatable combination of dense, well-marbled meat and connective tissue, which softens as it cooks and help to create a smooth, rich, deeply flavorful sauce. Slow, moist-heat methods like braising are best for short ribs, and English-cut tend to hold their shape even after a long braise.
Each package weighs between 1-1/2 and 1-3/4 pounds, and contains 2 or 3 ribs cut parallel to the bone, with one bone per piece.
