To ensure optimal freshness and flavor, it is recommended to store the bag of Beef Short Ribs properly. Place the bag in the refrigerator at a temperature below 40°F (4°C). Ensure the bag is tightly sealed to prevent any potential contamination or exposure to air. When stored correctly, the Beef Short Ribs can be refrigerated for up to 2-3 days. For longer storage, you can freeze the beef ribs. Transfer the ribs to airtight freezer-safe containers or resealable plastic bags, removing as much air as possible before sealing. Frozen beef ribs can maintain their quality for approximately 3-4 months.
This pack contains 400g-1kg of Beef Short Ribs.
Your item will arrive in a 100% recycled box lovingly packed with FSC-certified shredded spruce from Britain and Sweden, natural sheep’s wool insulation and non-toxic chilled gel packs, all of which can be reused, composted or recycled. To recycle the gel packs, simply cut a corner and dispose of the contents through your normal domestic waste system, as the gel isn’t harmful to the environment. Better still, reuse them by storing in the freezer and chilling other products. The only component from our packaging that can’t be recycled are the foil liners which need to be go in household waste; the poly bags meat comes in needs to go in plastic recycling.


Cooking instructions for beef short ribs:
1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C).
2. Season the beef short ribs with salt and pepper or your preferred seasoning blend.
3. Heat a large, oven-safe skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat.
4. Add a small amount of oil to the skillet and sear the short ribs on all sides until they develop a brown crust. This helps seal in the juices and adds flavor.
5. Once seared, remove the short ribs from the skillet and set them aside.
6. In the same skillet, add chopped onions, carrots, and celery, and sauté until they begin to soften.
7. Add garlic and any additional herbs or spices you prefer, such as thyme or rosemary, and cook for another minute or two.
8. Return the short ribs to the skillet, arranging them in a single layer.
9. Pour in enough beef broth or red wine to partially cover the ribs. The liquid will help keep the meat moist during cooking.
10. Cover the skillet or Dutch oven with a lid or aluminum foil and transfer it to the preheated oven.
11. Allow the short ribs to braise in the oven for about 2 to 2.5 hours, or until the meat becomes tender and starts to fall off the bone.
12. Once done, carefully remove the skillet from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes.
13. Serve the beef short ribs with the braising liquid and any desired sides, such as mashed potatoes or roasted vegetables.

Note: Cooking times may vary depending on the thickness and quality of the beef short ribs. It’s always a good idea to use a meat thermometer to ensure they reach an internal temperature of at least 145°F (63°C) for food safety.
