I made fajitas with boneless short ribs from Costco tonight. 2.6lb for $14 and change. It came out amazing. What an awesome cut in terms of flavor and texture. I've had them prepared Korean style and otherwise...but never boneless and never at home. Wow.

that's a helluva deal on boneless shorties

how'd you cook em?

IMO, short ribs are the most flavorful cut from the cow. followed closely by ribeye and hanger

Dusted with seasoned salt and done on the flat top. Took them off, added butter to the juice and cooked the veggies.

so you cut them into strips and pan fried them.

so texturally did they come out similar to bacon lardons?

The compressor maintains an air flow at 90 psi.

Nope. That's an old people joke too. Was used in the Pee Wee special on HBO in the early 80's. ;)

You have to know these things when you are the king!

Listen, strange women lyin' in ponds distributin' swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.


I always thought the question was "a coconut laden swallow", which , by implication would be slower than unladen...
