Personal Notes:
Beef short ribs have a piece of cartilage on the outside that doesn’t break down even after hours
of slow cooking. Be sure to peel off that piece, and discard before shredding the meat.
For this recipe, ask your butcher for traditional English-style ribs instead of the thinner
Korean-style ribs.
