Buying Short Ribs in Spain

  • 1

I would like to buy beef chuck short ribs (cut like the attached pic) from a butcher in spain. I have come across "costillas corgadas", "costillas del lomo", and "costillas cortas". I believe that "costillas corgadas" might be south american spanish, "costillas del lomo" are plate ribs, and "costillas cortas" are shoulder ribs (the ones I want).

Can someone help me with this? ..i am in Barcelona.

  1. If this helps, in Portugal I think you would ask for "entrecosta" or "entrecosto", the spelling varies according to the region...
