These sliced short ribs have been cut across the bone (kosher cut/cross cut) from five-rib sections, resulting in easy to manage single serving portions. Unsliced five-bone grass fed beef short ribs are also available.
Short ribs are a classic braising cut (though they can also be slow roasted or smoked). High in collagen, they need to be cooked low and slow in order to make them tender, but the results are more than worth the wait. When braised, all the collagen melts into the braising liquid, giving it a silky mouth feel and tremendous body.
Some people prefer the bone-in version of this cut because the bones offer additional flavor, help stabilize the meat during cooking so it doesn’t fall apart, and offer a more interesting look on the plate. If desired the bones can be easily pulled from the short ribs after braising so you can serve them boneless.
Silver Fern brand grass fed beef is raised on the pristine pastures of New Zealand. With this beef, “grass fed” means 100% grass fed & grass finished. Silver Fern beef has been produced according to strict EU mandated animal welfare conditions. The cattle are pastured 100% of the time, with access to paddock areas with windbreaks and other structures for shelter from inclement weather.
This beef is more marbled and flavorful than much of the grass fed beef available in the US. Read Why Angus Beef is So Well Regarded and The Different Ways Cattle are Raised for more information about what makes it so special.
