I'd never heard of Plate RIbs until a month or so ago when there were a number of discussions about them here on this forum. Read the article I mentioned in my last post and it will describe the differences including which part of the cow they are from. The short ribs you mention are almost always chuck short ribs that have been cut. You can also get them uncut and they will cook up similarly to the Plate RIbs.Zmokin said:I've never heard of Chuck or Plate ribs. I've always heard of Short ribs which are the flat rib bone with the meat on one side of the bone and they always are cut into short ~ 3 inch lengths. The other Beef rib is the Beef Spare Rib which is 7 or 8 inches long, and while not perfectly round, it is a rounder bone than the flat bone and these ribs have the most of the meat between the bones.
