What are Beef Short Ribs?

It’s a cut of meat, from the ribs of a cow, that is perfect for long braising in an oven or slow cooker.

They’re quite fatty, so some people (my mother!) would never dream of eating these. But, most of that fat melts away and creates the most amazing gravy.

Some questions you may have…

  • Are braising ribs the same and short ribs?
    • Yes! They sure are—if your grocer calls them braising ribs, it’s just a fancy term for short ribs. ?
  • Should braising liquid cover the meat?
    • Yes, almost… Be sure your liquid comes up to just the top of the meat—as the meat cooks, it will release more liquid, so no need to completely submerge.

What should I serve with Braised Beef Short Ribs?

Serve with Mashed Potatoes for an incredible meal! If you need a green vegetable, I highly recommend the Crispy Ranch Brussels Sprouts — the crispy texture is wonderful with the tender meat.
