Juicy beef short ribs
Beef short ribs come from the beef chuck portion. They are the four short ribs from the chuck section that are too small to be used for good steaks. Essentially, when a beef animal is harvested and broken into sections, the first four beef short ribs go into the chuck section, not the rib section. We do that because, as mentioned above, these first four rib bones are short bones and don't make for good steaks. The meat in between these bones is from muscle that is used heavily, and therefore has less tenderness but much more flavor.
