A big slab of beef ribs can be hard to find and intimidating to cook, so why not try something a bit easier and still enjoyable: Beef Short Ribs. What makes short ribs different than regular beef ribs? Simple, Short ribs are cut from the rib and plate primals and a small corner of the square-cut chuck.
There are a lot of different kinds of cuts of short ribs. Short ribs can be separated and cut into short lengths and cut across the bones which is typically about 1/2inch thick, these are called an “English cut.” Instead of smoking the ribs for a long time, I decided to grill them hot and fast instead so that you still get all of the great flavors. I used Tastefully Simple’s Cherry Zinfandel BBQ sauce to marinate the short ribs for about four hours and then keep on basting the ribs with the same BBQ sauce and boy did they turn out amazing!
