Recipe of the Week–Flanken Style Beef Ribs

What does Flanken-style mean?
Taken from the chuck primal part of the beef, the Flanken-style Short Ribs consist of the first five ribs of the ribcage. When the chuck short ribs are obtained by cutting across the bones, they are referred to as Flanken-style Short Ribs. However, chuck short ribs cut parallel to the bones are known as English style short ribs.
