Can You Barbeque Beef Ribs?

Beef ribs are the perfect choice for barbequing and grilling. They don’t take as long as pork ribs, making them perfect for a quick and easy meal. You should barbeque your ribs for 1 ½ - 2 hours, or until they reach an internal temperature of 94°C. Once they are cooked through enough, mop the beef ribs with a sticky sauce, and wrap in tin foil for at least half an hour to finish cooking.

Do Beef Ribs Need a Marinade?

It isn’t vital that you marinate ribs, you can simply season the rack with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. However, ribs are perfect for sweet and sticky sauces, which can be slathered on during the barbeque process. Try marinating your ribs in Sauce Shop BBQ Sauce for a dish that the whole family will love.

How do Beef Ribs Differ From Pork Ribs?

The difference between pork ribs and beef ribs is simply the animal where the cut of meat comes from. Generally, beef ribs are larger and fattier than pork ribs. Pork ribs are a leaner cut (low fat-to-meat ratio), which results in a meatier flavour once the ribs are cooked. Both work well for grilling or slow cooking in the oven.

Are Beef Ribs and Short Ribs the Same?

Not quite. Beef ribs are taken from the rib section of the cow, they tend to be longer, and are mostly used in dishes like barbeque beef ribs. Short ribs, on the other hand, are taken from the plate cut and as such have a slightly smaller bone.

How Do I Prepare Beef Ribs?

To prepare beef ribs, you’ll first want to remove the membrane. If left on, the ribs will be tough and chewy. Then, add your chosen seasoning. If adding a rub to your ribs, you might want to let this settle overnight for maximum flavour. Alternatively, you can add a sauce throughout the cooking process. Ribs are best cooked slowly at low heat, be sure to wrap in plenty of foil before cooking so that none of the juices escape.

What’s the Difference Between Baby Back and Beef Ribs?

Baby back ribs are sometimes known as pork back ribs, they come from high up on the back of a hog. Similarly, beef ribs come from the upper section of the cow. Baby back ribs tend to have slightly more meat on them than beef, both benefit most from cooking slowly at low heat.
