So I really need to know what the heck this could possibly be. We had a barbecue over the weekend and one friend brought something labelled boneless Miami ribs. I was dubious right from the start, but they sort of looked ok, although NOTHING like any type of rib whatsoever. These were strips of meat, cut across the grain, about an inch or so wide and maybe 4 to 6 inches long. They were sliced maybe 1/4 inch thick. There was no indication of any bone that could have ever been part of this meat. Now I do know that Miami ribs are another name for a Korean type of short rib, usually marinated and grilled and should be delicious. So I marinated them in a sort of Asian marinade for a out 4 hours, and then they were grilled.
How can I put this delicately? Well, let's just say the dog will be eating very well this week. The meat was tough and chewy and not in a good way. What was this meat? Did someone pull the wool over my friends eyes and sell her some weird cut that should never be grilled? She bought them at a kosher market, if that makes any difference.
Wish I had taken a photo, but I've already cut it up into bits for dog food.
