Q: I just picked up a couple packages of boneless beef chuck short ribs.
In lieu of the BBQ (apartment living!) I would love a few new cooking ideas and flavors for this cut of meat. Thank you!

Editor: Gina, I frankly don't grill short ribs; yes, they can be good on the grill, but I find braising much more reliable. Personally, I would brown them then throw them in the slow cooker or a covered pot in a low oven for a few hours. It's getting hot outside, so the slow cooker is a nice option to have. Here are a couple of posts on cooking short ribs:

Readers, any tips or good summer recipes for beef short ribs?
