US Beef Prime Chuck Short Rib Boneless Hot Pot Sliced ~200g
Chuck Short Rib in Japanese is 三角バラ. 三角バラ literally meaning "triangle rib", its name fits its shape, which is like a triangle.
It is a cut of meat taken from the first through the sixth ribs. It is evenly marbled, with a perfect balance of fat and lean meat.
The USDA beef grade
"Prime" beef is produced from young, well-fed beef cattle. It has abundant marbling (the amount of fat interspersed with lean meat), and is generally sold in restaurants and hotels.
"Choice" beef is high quality, but has less marbling than "Prime". "Select" beef is very uniform in quality and normally leaner than the higher grades.
