      I second Costco, quite inexpensive and well marbled.

      McKinnon's in Davis almost always has them thinly sliced for stirfrying (basically satay size) and at least in the summer you can usually get larger (rectangular) pieces off the shelf or just call ahead and have them set some aside from you. I also bought some recently at the Hong Kong Market in Malden, but its been a couple of weeks.

            I've gotten them there, and at the Walnut Street one. I actually found them to be too lean on a couple of occasions. I think Restaurant Depot in Needham usually has them, in large quantities, of course. I've only cooked the ones on the bone recently (from Roche Bros. and Restaurant Depot).

            H Mart has very high quality boneless short ribs - Naturewell brand, a National Beef product, and while I'm no fan of National Beef, it's a step in the right direction.

              I always get them from McKinnon's in Everett and Chelsea Market Basket

                Trader Joes has them. 5.99 per pound and very good.

                  Hilltop always has them when I am in the market for them. They have always been delicious, well marbled and the perfect size. Price is right,also.
