Sort of Short Ribs? How should I cook these?
« on: June 17, 2018, 09:04:27 PM »
Picked these up at Sams Club a couple days ago. Labeled as short ribs, but they look nothing like any short rib cut Ive ever seen, boneless or not. More like some kind of ultra-thick beef bacon.

I can wait a couple days for when I have time to do low & slow, but Id like to cook them for dinner tomorrow night. Well have a guest over and I will only realistically have a couple hours to cook.

Any & all suggestions welcome.

Those are commonly known as flanken short ribs. Very popular in Asian cooking especially Korean. Just search for Korean kalbi recipe. It is cooked direct over coal using medium heat. You might have to marinate it a full day but cooking time is just few minutes.

We make those all the time. Olive oil, sea salt and fresh ground pepper. Grill indirect 3-4 minutes then sear 1-2 minutes per side.

I've been getting Flanken from a local supermarket lately and am loving it!  If you can find a butcher who will cut em thinner (I think they're called "button steaks" that way) they're supposed to be great!  A buddy keeps buying them and then we basically throw em on the fire and cook as @RumBar suggested......I've been wanting to do a low and slow with them to see if they soften up a bit.
Its amazing how quickly one weber kettle turns into more than a dozen!  Always open to grabbing something interesting so let me know what you've got!
