Barbecued Beef Short Ribs

Makes: 8 servings
Prep 25 mins Marinate 1 hr to 4 hrs Grill About 6 mins  per side Stand 4 mins
Barbecued Beef Short Ribs
  • 4  pounds  beef flanken-style short ribs, cut across the ribs into 1-1/2-inch-thick slices
  • 2  tablespoons  red wine vinegar
  • 1  Lemon-Cilantro Gremolata (recipe below)

1. Trim any surface fat from ribs. Rub all surfaces of the ribs generously with salt and pepper. Put ribs in a large baking dish that fits them all in a single layer. Drizzle vinegar over both sides of ribs. Marinate ribs, at room temperature for up to 1 hour or in the refrigerator for up to 4 hours, turning occasionally. (This longer marinating time may make the surface of the ribs turn gray in spots. That is fine and the discoloration will disappear when they are grilled.)

2. Preheat grill to medium-high. Grill ribs, covered, about 6 minutes per side, turning once, until well browned. If ribs flare up as you grill, move them temporarily to a cooler area on the grill. The ribs should be just a touch rarer than medium-anything less and they will be very chewy. Let rest 4 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with Lemon-Cilantro Gremolata. Makes 8 servings.

From the Test KitchenMake with Flank Steak:
  • Score 2 lb. flank steak on both sides. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and marinated as directed in main recipe. Grill directly over medium heat for 17 to 21 minutes or until medium (160 degrees F), turning once halfway through.
Lemon-Cilantro Gremolata
  • 1/4  cup  chopped yellow sweet pepper
  • 2  tablespoons  snipped fresh cilantro
  • 1  tablespoon  finely shredded lemon peel

1. In a small bowl combine pepper, cilantro and lemon peel.
