USDA Prime Boneless Beef Short Rib

Mister Brisket’s USDA Prime Boneless Beef Short Rib is a superb piece of chuck that’s versatile, reasonably inexpensive and simple to prepare.  Like all our Meyer Natural Angus products, it comes from cattle that were 100% Angus, raised without hormones or antibiotics and treated humanely.  This particular cut is meant to be cooked to full doneness–meaning you don’t serve it pink.  It does best when braised like a brisket or beef stew but it can actually be grilled.  Each slab of our boneless short rib typically weighs 1 1/2 to 2 lbs.  Figure that each rectangular section will feed 2 comfortably…sometimes 3.

One simple preparation is to liberally season the 2 hunks of the short rib with salt and pepper.  Throw it in a roasting pan with cut up carrots, onions and small pieces of potato.  Pour in a can of cola.  Cover and roast the meat for about 2 1/2 hours at 325.  Remove and serve 4-6 people

Another method would involve similar cooking but calls for marinating the meat for 8-12 hours in the following mix:  3/4 cup soy sauce, 3/4 cup water, 3 Tbsp white vinegar, 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1 tbsp black pepper, 2 tbsp sesame oil, 1/4 cup minced garlic and 1 large diced onion.  Mix this marinade until the sugar and spices have blended in then pour over the meat which should be in a bowl or plastic bag.  Let it rest overnite in the fridge.  Place the marinated meat in a roasting pan including the marinade about an hour before cooking.  Roast at 325 covered for 2 1/2 hours.  Remove from oven, cut the beef into smaller squares, serve and enjoy.  Feeds 4-6
