Difference Between Beef Short Ribs and Beef Back Ribs:

Short ribs are smaller than beef back ribs and are located more to the breastbone or underside of the cow. Conversely back ribs come from the ribs nearest to the shoulder of the cow, closest to spine.

Visually, short ribs are smaller and the meat is on top of the bone. Back ribs are elongated / longer and the meat is in the middle of the bones.

Interesting enough, the cooking method is the same for both cuts because theyre a tough cut with bones, if that makes sense. Low and slow cooked in the oven or crockpot for both beef rib cuts.

Beef short ribs are also expensive. If youre looking for a more economical cut, check out my BBQ oven baked Beef Back Ribs. These ribs are the bones that are cut off from a Prime Rib Roast. They may not be as meaty but they are just as delicious.
