Are beef ribs and short ribs the same?
Not quite. Beef ribs are taken from the rib section of the cow, they tend to be longer, and are mostly used in dishes like barbecue beef ribs. Short ribs, on the other hand, are taken from the plate cut and as such have a slightly smaller bone.

How do I prepare beef ribs?
To prepare beef ribs, you’ll first want to remove the membrane. If left on, the ribs will be tough and chewy. Then, add your chosen seasoning. If adding a rub to your ribs, you might want to let this settle overnight for maximum flavour. Alternatively, you can add a sauce throughout the cooking process. Ribs are best cooked slowly at low heat, be sure to wrap in plenty of foil before cooking so that none of the juice escape.

What’s the difference between baby back and beef ribs?
Baby back ribs are sometimes known as pork back ribs, they come from high up on the back of a hog. Similarly, beef ribs come from the upper section of the cow.
Baby back ribs tend to have slightly more meat on them than beef, both benefit most from cooking slowly at low heat.
