About Beef Flanken Style Ribs

Flanken-style ribs are basically chuck short ribs cut across the bone. Chuck short ribs are the first five ribs of the rib cage from the chuck primal cut. The chuck primal is one of the toughest cuts in the cow. It is still favored by many individuals because of its economical price and good taste created by the right ingredients and cooking methods such as sous vide or braise.

Do note that short ribs are more popular than chuck short ribs. One of the reasons the chuck short ribs are not preferred by many individuals is because like the other cuts in the chuck, it can contain an unpleasant amount of gristle and fat. However with slow braising the fat can easily be removed.

In fact if you plan to grill your flanken style short ribs then do braise it before with plain ingredients so that the fat is cooked along with the liquid. This way when you grill it, you won't find any fat dripping from it. You can also use a drip pan while grilling to avoid the dripping fat. Dripping fat might cause a flare up which would ruin your ribs so don't be lazy about cooking it the right way.

When selecting the short ribs during your shopping, select the ones that appear to have good marbling. They are thinly sliced, around 3/4 of an inch. This way you will never choose the wrong cut. In conclusion the flanken style short rib is a great, cheap cut enjoyed by individuals on a tight budget.
