Boneless Short Ribs on the BGE

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…
