Where to buy beef ribs in TO

buttercupv Jun 30, 2010 08:04 AM

I am tired of doing the same old pork ribs on the BBQ this summer. I wanted to try beef ribs instead, however when I went to Loblaw's they were no where to be found.... Any suggestions on where I may be able to purchase these?

    You can get beef ribs at The Butcher Shoppe on Shorncliffe. They have them pre-cut into short ribs or you can buy bulk and they will cut them to your preferred size. In my opinion, it is good quality meat and good prices. For $50 I got enough for three meals for three people each meal. They only take cash and I'd check their webiste for hours to be safe.

      Nortown butcher has them, both marinated and not. I also buy them at Longo's.

        I just bought some today at Nortown. They will cut them as you want them. I wanted a full rack, membrane removed for a recipe I found. Easy request. Cost $20 for the full rack.

          In the Food Basics flyer sent to my home (Don Mills and Wynford Drive) there are beef ribs advertised for $2.99 lb. (til July 1st)

                  The Price Chopper beef ribs in cryovac (Canada product) worked out well on July 1.

            Saw them at Metro today, but I bought pork ribs instead. I might just change my mind and head over to Price Chopper on Friday........

              The Loblaws at Queen's Quay consistently stocks fantastic thick-cut, meaty beef ribs at $3.99/lb. Because they are one of the few places in town to do so, they tend to sell out fast but if you call ahead they will always let you know whether they are there and/or hold on to some.

              Galleria Supermarket at Yonge/Steeles has excellent Korean style short ribs, also at very reasonable prices.

                Aurora Meat and Cheese - www.aurorameat.ca it's in Mississauga but it's well worth the drive. While you are in the neighbourhood check out Starsky's - www.starskycanada.com. Their hot table is the best in the GTA and their meat and dessert selections are fantastic as well (be sure to get a custard filled donut!
