    Meathead’s Burgers

    Just finished reading Meathead’s article on burgers and I want to try burgers from home ground beef short ribs. A couple of questions. Are the “beef boneless ribs” in Costco actually rib meat or from another part of the steer? Also, if I buy true bone-in beef ribs, how much (if any) of the fat should I remove before I grind the meat? Thanks to all!! The OmegaDog

    Those Costco “boneless ribs” are actually sliced chuck. So you’d have ground chuck. Not bad but not short rib.

    Those are sliced chuck.....or at least they are at my costco. Not sure why they label it as that.

    If you buy the plate ribs, trim as much surface fat as you can. The rib meat is so rich that all the surface fat ends up being tossed when eating.......then there goes all your smoke, rub and bark too!

    If you are making the burgers, id toss all of the surface fat and get really aggressive with it. As I stated above, there is a ton of inter muscular fat, so you will be fine with out that surface fat.

      I render that fat down, and use it in other dishes.

      Thanks much!! The Meathead Memorial Day BurgerFest topped with Clint Cantwell’s Bacon/Bourbon Jelly is on! Richard Chrz, what would you use the rendered fat on and how do you render it?
