The short ribs are cut from the rib cage. On one side they are protected by a silver skin, on the other side they have a thick layer of meat and fat, which remains nice and juicy when smoked or grilled.

Meat knowledge

Pork spare ribs are an absolute barbecue classic - but there is room for a little variety, right? That's right, we think so too. Our Fitmeat Veal Short Ribs are perfect for this.

Yes, there are also delicious beef ribs and they really have it going on - the meat coating, of course. The meat coating is much thicker than the classic spare ribs. Perfectly cooked, they could almost pass for buttery brisket.

Why Shortribs?

Let's clear up a few misconceptions: Shortribs means "short rib", but it has nothing to do with being short. On the contrary, beef ribs are anything but short. In addition to the thick layer of meat that makes them so delicious, they have a high fat content. This makes the meat not only juicy, but also very aromatic.

The right way to cook shortribs

Our Fitmeat Shortribs take time to cook and are perfect for smoking. The ribs are gently smoked for several hours (preferably more than 10 hours). This allows the fat to melt and creates an almost creamy flavour. Important: Please prepare on a low flame, i.e. at a low temperature.

Cooking ribs like a pro
A little tip

If you want to add the finishing touch to what is already delicious meat, choose a slightly acidic marinade. This speeds up the breakdown of the protein, making the ribs tender and a little juicier. The silver skin should be removed before cooking. After about 6-8 hours, the meat will begin to fall from the bone and become buttery tender.

Shortribs from the Austrian veal calf (heifer)

Calf or heifer is the term used for female cattle that have not yet calved. The meat has a beautiful dark red colour and very fine fibres. In addition, the meat has a special marbling which enhances the flavour.

This first class marbling, the storage of fat in the muscle, is the result of the very slow growth of the calves. The result is remarkably tender meat and an intense flavour.

1.5 kg short ribs are enough for four 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.
