No more short ribs

hamptonmeadow | May 24, 2010 12:29 PM

Has anyone found a source for the kind of short ribs with the big fat hunk of meat on them? The only kind available now are the bone with no meat.

I could not find them anywhere including Byerly's, whose had a tiny, tiny bit of more meat on them.

I am told it is because meat is no longer sold by carcass and is sold in shrink wrapped sections. Also told there is no money in short ribs so they don't cut them, except for the bone, no meat kind. Apparently that fits into the cutting plan on the carcass. I don't think there are any custom butchers any more because of this.

I love short ribs. Help.
