THE CUT

Also known as spare ribs, short ribs are taken from the forequarter after the brisket is removed.  They are made up of the rib bone and layers of rib meat and fat.  Rich and tasty, short ribs taken on flavour well.  The length of ribs can vary depending on the recipe they are used in.
 

HOW TO COOK

Marinating the ribs is recommended for at least a couple of hours, if not overnight in the refrigerator.Simmering the ribs before cooking breaks down the connective tissue, ensuring a tender, moist result. Cook the ribs on a preheated barbecue, covered for 15 minutes or until cooked through.  Alternatively, bake in the oven at 180ºC for the same amount of time.
