What are Boneless Beef Short Ribs?
Short ribs have lots of meats on them and they are the most popular cut for BBQ and also taste good for stew.
Boneless short ribs are cut from the chuck or plate, and consist of rib meat separated from the bone, which helps makes it perfect for this stew recipe: Instant Pot Boneless Beef Short Ribs.
Boneless beef short ribs are larger and meatier than pork spare ribs. As an alternative, chuck roast is the best substitute when boneless short ribs are unavailable.
