Boneless Beef Rib Sandwich with Blue Cheese Slaw

January 17, 2014

When it comes to beef, one of my favorite cuts is the rib.  Now normally I would cook them low and slow on the bone ala giant dinosaur bones or hot and fast when cut in to smaller Korean short ribs.  Recently, however, I had a chance to try cooking some beautifully marbled boneless beef ribs, courtesy of 44 Farms.  While the beef could have been sliced into smaller strips and cooked quickly, I opted to keep them intact, slicing them up nice and thin after the meat had a long and slow session on the smoker.  To round it out, I whipped up a batch of blue cheese slaw that added a tangy bite to the beef.
