Short ribs can be cut two different ways. English cut ribs are one rib with meat on it. Flanken style ribs are pieces cut across several ribs with meat in between. The English cut ribs are harder to arrange because of the size of the bone.

From an old thread. I don't think I have seen this cut in my area. Looks interesting.
