Beef plateribs vs. pork ribs

If you put beef plateribs next to the classic pork ribs, your jaw will drop. They are by far the thickest ribs of beef.

. A cut of 3 - 5 ribs weighs a whopping 4.5 kg. 4.5 kg and is at least as thick as your fist. The layer of meat and fat is correspondingly thicker. An absolute highlight for hardened and experienced smokers.

Preparation of Plateribs

Due to their amazing size and high fat content, plateribs are clearly meant to be smoked, and patience is required. They take longer to prepare than traditional spare ribs.

The ribs have a strong beef flavour and are usually seasoned only with salt and pepper. A great alternative to short ribs or to surprise your friends with huge ribs.

Austrian Veal Plateribs

Beef ribs are a great alternative to the classic pork cut, but they are also harder to find. At Fitmeat you can get fabulous plate ribs from Austrian veal that will really get you going at the barbecue.

. In addition to the amazingly thicker layer of meat, the veal rib cut has a much stronger aroma than the pork. Especially if the meat has been matured beforehand. The size is also a factor, which can push some small barbecues to their limits.

What makes Austrian veal ribs so special?

A calf or heifer is a female cow that has not yet calved. The meat has a beautiful dark red colour and very fine fibres. The meat also has a special marbling which enhances the flavour.

This excellent marbling, i.e. the storage of fat in the muscle, is the result of the very slow growth of the calves. This gives our plateribs a remarkable tenderness and an intense, full-bodied meat aroma.

We recommend a length of plate ribs for six to ten people.

Quality is our top priority and, when it comes to beef, a few factors are crucial. These include the perfect breed of cattle, the age of the animals and optimum feeding, free from concentrated feed.

However, this alone is not enough to meet our requirements. We don't do things by halves when it comes to the quality of our meat products! That's why 100% of our animals come from Austria. The farms are located in the lake district of the Salzkammergut in beautiful Upper Austria.

At Fitmeat, we also only process the finest meat from heifers, also known as calves, and steers. The meat has a wonderful marbling and a delicious flavour. Our classic cattle breeds also include Red-Angus, Black-Angus, Charolais, Limousin, White-Blue Belgian and Wagyu, as well as various crossbreeds.

Our cattle are 4x AT labelled. This means that birth, rearing, slaughter and cutting take place 100% in Austria. The value chain therefore remains entirely in Austria. We distance ourselves from long animal transports and select our partners very carefully. We therefore rely on animals that are kept in a species-appropriate manner, born and raised by small farmers, and on butchers who know both the farmer and the animal personally.

Our butchers allow the cuts to mature on the bone for a long time. This gives us first-class, well-hung meat that does not lose any water during roasting and can be enjoyed with a clear conscience.
