Anyone Use Beef Ribs in Veggie Beef Soup?

So I have a ton of beef ribs. My dad as well as a buddy both got cows slaughtered this fall and nobody wanted the ribs so I am ate up with them.  (First world problems I know)

I found the soup bone cuts of meat in the freezer today and thought I would make some New Years Day vegetable beef soup. Then I wondered what those little short ribs I have would be like in a soup like that.

(they aren't great cuts for cooking on the Egg, both cows were small and the short ribs just haven't been great. Plus I think my wife is burned out on them since we had so many).

As always, most help will be appreciated.

    Seems like a great idea to me 
  • I remember as a kid my mom used short ribs all the time in soup.  It was great.

  • Should be perfect. You may want to skim a little fat once it cools but beef rib should braise up all nice and buttery for you

    I've done it and it works great.   Like CT said you prolly will want to skim some fat off the top

  • I'd roast them a little them throw them in the soup and simmer away until the meat falls away from the bone.
    I usually save the rib bones from rib roasts for soup.

  • The ribs don't have a lot of marrow but they will help the stock a whole pile. If you want to use them for the meat they will be great. As mentioned I would roast them off with mirepoix and "paint" with tomato paste once they are brown..
