Beef Short Ribs Getting Seared Over Hardwood Lump Charcoal

Big Green Egg Beef Short Ribs Recipe

Paul SidoriakPaul Sidoriak
Beef short ribs are full of fat and full of flavor. We use sous vide cooking to transform the ribs into something delicious by cooking them over a long period of time at a low temperature. This results in a tender rib that is finger-licking good.
