ISO butcher / short ribs in North OC

Can you please recommend a good butcher or market in or near North Orange County? I am currently searching for some English style beef short ribs to prepare the short rib recipe from Molly Stevens' "All About Braising". I have visited the Beef Palace in Huntington Beach but felt the meat looked a little tired. I loked at Sam's club but they only had flanken style short ribs. The butcher, did however, say that I could order the English style ribs with a few days notice. I may indeed do this, but it has led me to look for a reliable butcher or market for meat.

Thank-you. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

  1. There's Gem Meats in Placentia. They're right on Yorba Linda Blvd, just east of Placentia Ave, in the same strip mall as Vendome Liquors.

      What she said -- they're really quite good.

    2. You could also check out Plowboys Market, on the corner of Warner/Magnolia in Fountain Valley

      1. The Stater Brothers on the S/W corner of Bastanchury & Brea Blvds has a huge meat counter.
