Common Cuts of Beef
Sold in rectangular, blocklike pieces that are 2 to 3 inches long, short ribs come from the loin, chuck, or midrib area. Thick
layers of meat and fat give the ribs a rich taste, but they can be tough, so aren’t suitable for grilling. Instead, they benefit
from long, slow covered cooking.
Best for: Braising.
