A Substitute for Flanken...?

CindyJ | Nov 6, 2008 07:51 AM

The recipe for mushroom-barley soup calls for flanken. It's my understanding that this is nothing more than beef short ribs cut horizontally. I like short ribs, but they're fairly fatty, and I'd like a really meaty soup. Is there a cut of beef that's tender, just as tasty and less fatty that I can substitute?
