Beef Short Ribs in Montreal?

Does anyone know where I can find Beef Short Ribs in Montreal? I've attached a picture of what I am looking for below. Thanks

  1. Well, those appear to be flanken cut short ribs, so I'd say Asian butchers to start (cut is popular with Korean BBQ). Have also seen them at Loblaws (very thin) and I can get them with a bit of lead time at Claude et Henri at the Atwater Market.

    1. I just got some from Marche PA on Parc and St Joseph. They weren't too cheap though, and came in a styrofoam tray; but couldn't resist it.

      1. The IGA in the Cote St. Luc shopping center has them - but I don't like those as they aren't "Thick" enough for my slow braising purposes. I get the perfect ones at a butchers' shop in the Atwater market - first one on the left as you go up the middle stairs (I would tell you the name, but it's on the tip of my tongue and not at my fingertips).

        1. That's the style of short ribs used for Korean ribs. You can get them at any Chinese/Japanese/Korean market. You can them fresh at the Chinatown markets or at the Asian ones with a butcher shop in the Cote de Neige area or Marche Hawai in VSL. If you're not near them & live in Westmount/NDG the Korean/Japanese markets will usually have packs of frozen short ribs.

          1. I like the Tours butcher shop in Atwater Market for their short ribs.
