What to seek in beef ribs

Beef ribs come in two different forms: beef back ribs and beef short ribs. Back ribs are more prominent and longer with less meat, while short ribs are smaller and packed with meat. Both have connective tissue and marbling, which mean tremendous flavour in the mouth. Both have their advantages, though short ribs provide more bang for your buck, volume-wise.

As butchers of distinction, Peter Bouchier only selects beef of superior quality. Hailing from ethical farms in NSW and Victoria, our ribs are from grass-fed cattle and premium quality, meaty and flavoursome. Moreover, they are short ribs, providing plenty of opportunities to experiment with a wide range of recipes.

Looking for beef ribs? For peak taste and the most satisfying dining, you need the best beef ribs. Here are our tips for mouth-watering beef ribs every time:

  • Choose beef ribs that have plenty of meat on the bone. Delicious, meaty ribs will not only be more satisfying but it will expand your options in terms of cooking — you could bbq or smoke or go slow and low and braise or grill.
  • Look for red meat that looks bright and fresh with plenty of good marbling to ensure juicy and tender ribs.
  • If you're looking for a healthier option, grass-fed beef is a leaner choice that is lower in fat and calories.
  • Be selective. There are plenty of poor quality ribs on the market producing unsatisfying results.
  • Choose to support local suppliers when you can. You know it's the very best quality, and you'll be supporting Australian farmers.

Frequently asked questions

How should I cook beef ribs?

Essentially, beef ribs are better the longer you cook them. Time and heat together tenderise them to achieve succulence. It's always a good idea to cook and apply the marinade or sauce called for by your recipe and follow instructions, erring on the side of slowness.

What do I do if my cooked ribs are too tough and dry?

Everybody yearns for juicy and tender beef ribs. If your beef ribs are tough and dry, it means that you didn't cook them for long enough. It's important that you cook them at a lower temperature for longer, to break down connective tissue and collagen so that they begin to fall apart. If you've already cooked them and they are this way, an easy fix is to baste them with a little apple cider vinegar and your marinade, wrap them in tinfoil, and roast them at a lower temperature. This will help them reabsorb moisture and become the juicy feast you desire!

How long do beef ribs last in the fridge?

We recommend storing raw beef ribs no longer than 3 to 5 days in the fridge, while cooked beef ribs may be stored for up to 3 days. When in doubt, toss them out. All the more reason to get stuck in as soon as possible!

What are key food safety tips for beef ribs?

Here are some helpful recommendations for safely handling your beef ribs:

  • Never eat uncooked beef ribs. Ensure they are cooked thoroughly to approximately 95°C.
  • Refrigerate/freeze beef ribs as soon as possible
  • Thaw ribs thoroughly before cooking
  • Keep beef ribs separate from other raw foods during storage and meal preparation

When eating cooked ribs that have been in the refrigerator, be certain to roast at a high temperature for 15 minutes or, if microwaving, for at least 5 minutes. Never reheat more than once.

What are some great beef rib recipes?

Beef ribs are infinitely good, with an infinite number of delicious recipes. Here are but a few of our favourites:
