Native Breed Beef Short Ribs

Beef short ribs, also know as a Jacob’s ladder. Perfect for slow cooking or grilling.

Beef short ribs are packed with flavour much of which comes from the high fat content and connective tissue. Being from a hard working part of the animal makes them naturally very tough. If you’re prepared to be patient though, you can make them perfectly tender with the meat falling from the bone.

Our butchers tips

These are beef short ribs also known as Jacob’s ladder from North Yorkshire native breed cattle.

Short ribs are cut from the ribs just above the brisket. Our butchers select the middle of these ribs to get an even covering of muscle and fat. They make a great cut for slow cooking by smoking or braising. Cooked on the BBQ or in the oven, the meat will fall away from the bone and stay succulent due to the good fat content.

Beef short ribs are packed with flavour much of which comes from the high fat content and connective tissue. Being from a hard working part of the animal makes them naturally very tough. If you’re prepared to be patient though, you can make them perfectly tender with the meat falling from the bone.

To reach perfection, short ribs should be cooked low and slow. The idea is to break down all the fat and connective tissue, basting the meat with flavour as they cook. What is undesirable and chewy will eventually become succulent and gelatinous and add to the beefy flavour. The connective tissue in the muscles will start to break down at around 75℃ and the short ribs will need taking up to as much as 95℃ to be finished.

Native breed short ribs are well suited to low and slow cooking due to the high fat content and the more developed flavour that comes with age.

If you buy a rack of ribs, you might want to cut them into blocks of two ribs. This will reduce the amount of time to reach the right temperature and will expose more of the meat.
