What to do with boneless beef short ribs?

Recommended Posts

I looked at the beef short ribs topic, but it seemed to refer to bone-in rib racks mostly. What does one do with BONELESS  beef ribs? I picked up a small package because they looked good, but now I don't know what to do with them!


A quick web search revealed lots of recipes for 4 or 5 pounds worth -- I've got maybe a pound (just for two people) and I wondered also how that affects the cooking time.

I make my beef stew exclusively with boneless short ribs. I usually by them from Costco in a big package and divide, vacuum pack and freeze them. But if I run our, a few stores near me sell them. So in a pinch I can get them.

I try to take the extra time to let them marinate with a mirepoix of carrots, celery and onion with a good slug ( half bottle? ) of red wine overnight.   Then drain and dry, keeping the liquid, sear then return marinade and solids.    Braise until fork tender.

So?  How'd they turn out?

The recipe looks quite good.


They just went in the oven. If nothing else, it smells good! I'll try to remember to post a picture!

@heidih thank you for the great recipe! I'll try it on the weekend! I'll use olive oil instead of canola oil, I hope it's ok.


I do not use canola in general so yes olive oil is my personal go to

Are beef ribs the same things as short ribs?

Not in my book.Click. you will have to scroll down to see the difference between beef ribs which are those bones attached to a prime rib and short ribs which are a different cut.
