Short ribs, although they’re not necessarily that short, are sections of beef ribs, not pork, usually taken from the second to the 10th rib. Each `slab’ can contain from 2 to 8 ribs. The meat is full of flavour, but is very tough, so the ribs are best braised slowly over low heat, making them perfect for cooking in a slow cooker.
