In this video, I demonstrate how to de-bone and tie a beef short rib for braising. This is commonly seen in higher end restaurants and is done for presentation purposes only.
When serving a large short rib, it is sometimes difficult to have a tight, clean presentation, especially when a round plate is used. The short rib can often look awkward and unbalanced. Rolling and tying the short rib will allow for a tighter plate presentation.
When using this technique, make sure you still include the bones in the braising liquid.
