Boneless Short Ribs on the BGE

Boneless Short Ribs on the BGE
Staff Writer

I was at Wholefoods deciding what to prepare for my crossfit friends coming over for dinner. I know my number 1 entertaining tip is to never test a new recipe but these are my workout buddies and we are always trying new paleo recipes. I saw boneless beef chuck short ribs. They’re strips of meat cut from the chuck section without a lot of surface fat and not a bone in sight—rib. They looked good but I have never prepared these before.

Normally when I use chuck I cook in the crock pot for the entire day to make sure the meat is tender. I was a little nervous so when I got home I marinated the meat in olive oil, salt, pepper and Italian herbs I had in my pantry and 4 cloves of garlic chopped.

We used The Big Green EGG® and dinner was a hit. Not only did I test a new main course recipe I also came up with a new dessert. The night was a hit…

There were 8 of us – alter as needed

Rib Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Rib Cooking Tip

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.
