Cut from the breast of the beast, our heritage breed beef* short ribs are single-portion lengths left on the bone for the depth of flavour this imparts. Unctuous and rich when slow-cooked, short ribs are at their best when falling off the bone and meltingly tender. Full-on flavour from native breeds of cattle, slowly reared in the Yorkshire countryside on grass then dry-aged on the bone >28 days in our Himalayan salt chamber and expertly butchered to order.
Jorge Thomas, director of Swaledale Butchers®, explains:
"Beef Short Ribs, cut from the short rib plate of the beast, often has the top muscle and fat removed. We leave the upper muscle on, partly due to the dimensions of our smaller breeds of native cattle.
I have smoked them with success, I know some of the very good smoking restaurants we work with advocate wrapping the beef in greaseproof paper once an initial bark has been achieved, for both short ribs and briskets. Whilst this may seem counterintuitive, given this is a barrier to the smoke, in reality it takes a good while for the bark to form and the resulting texture is much moister."
*All Swaledale beef is heritage breed and raised on independent farms and smallholdings dotted around the wildly beautiful Yorkshire Dales. Slow grown and free to roam on the swath of green hills and valleys; the result is exceptional tasting beef with an umami taste - rich, dense and flavourful.
