Beef Back Ribs
 
I have a recipe for braised short ribs from Pioneer Woman that Mrs D just loves. While we were doing the grocery shopping today I couldn't find any short ribs but found some beef back ribs. After googling it seems these ribs are more tender than short ribs.

Can I still braise them and should I reduce the cooking time?

Maybe you can call the meat dept at your store for advice. I don't know an answer.

I'm not a butcher as will become evident but I think they might be just as 'chewy' and that the cooking time will be about the same.

I think it will all depend on what your market sells for beef back ribs. Plain ol' beef ribs that I've seen are long on bone and short on beef but taste good.

Thanks for the link cave....excellent. I guess I'll just try my normal recipe tomorrow and see how it goes.

This is what I bought. I guess from what I have read they are from the bottom of the prime rib.

Wow, Rocket. those look so good (drool). Could you show us a picture once they're cooked? I'm sure you'll make them just right. When you do, let us know how you did it? Ok?

*drool*!

Those look entirely different (meatier and better) than the beef ribs I've seen. I still think they'll take quite a while to cook.

Maybe braising them first if you plan on grilling them or baking in the oven? That's just a guess.

If they are truly from the bottom of the standing rib roast, then they will be fairly tender. You don't need to braise them. They would be wonderful cooked with direct heat (charcoal, gas, hot cast iron, broil) ot a medium rare. Tney can be braised. That chunk with the large fat section should be trimmed if you are grilling it.

It would taste great braised with salt, pepper, and garlic, or wrapped in foil, with a dry rub, and baked in a slow oven (250 to 300 degrees F) for a few hours.

Another great use for those would be to cut the meat from the bone, cube it, and use it for kabobs, or stir-fries, or even mixed in with a good pasta with butter sauce. The bones could then be simmered to make beef stock.

Your ribs look like they have a lot of possibilities. Enjoy.

I did them in the slow cooker on low and they were way done after four hours. Very tasty but a tad overdone. I think I'll try your suggestion next time Chief. Low and slow in the oven.

Well, they look meaty enough. Put some sauce on 'em this time?
