You have two basic sets of ribs ... one set is the back ribs (where the tenderloin is) - this is where beef rib roasts (usually thought of as Prime Rib) comes from. Cut from them horizontally a little lower down you have the "spare ribs" ... which is what you get when you go to a BBQ joint and get a platter of ribs. When the spare ribs are trimmed up - the portion of the end of the ribs and the brisket - that is the spare rib tips. If the bone is removed, you might also see this labeled as "beef tips".

Thank you. Outside Texas, just "ribs" are pork, not beef. Is "the portion of the end of the ribs and the brisket" near the small end of the slab or is it the side of the slab where the bones turn into tendons? I ask because "Saint Louise Cut" spare ribs have this part removed and I wonder what is done with that part.

aruzinsky, most chinese food places near me make them, the spare rib tips by marinating them in that secret red asian bbq stuff and then deep frying them. served with fried rice they're really good, especially with hot sauce.

spare ribs are the full rack of ribs. St Louis ribs are trimmed spares. The tips are most likely the excess when cutting spares down to St Louis cuts.

So, if I hate tendons or cartilage in my meat, then I shouldn't buy this when I go shopping tomorrow?

yes, i wouldn't buy them if you don't like having to chew around the cartiledge. they're a little chunk of meat with a little piece of cartiledge in it, like rainee and michael said, they're from the end of a spare rib.
