What are baby beef ribs?
The U.S.D.A defines baby beef as follows: "Baby beef" and "calf" are 2 interchangeable terms used to describe young cattle weighing about 700 pounds that have been raised mainly on milk and grass. The meat cuts from baby beef are smaller; the meat is light red and contains less fat than beef. The fat may have a yellow tint due to the vitamin A in grass.
Baby Beef Ribs would simply be the short ribs taken from such animal.
Is there a difference between beef short ribs and beef spare ribs or does beef even have short ribs?
spare ribs are on top of the rib cage chest baby back r on the back and short ribs are cut against the grain. Duly noted.

For beef, talk to the butcher -- I can't translate this into sides.
Ribs may either be pork or beef. The preference is typically more regional than anything else. Texans seem to prefer beef ribs over pork. Most of the Deep South prefers pork ribs. When buying ribs in the grocery store, the label should indicate whether they are pork or beef. If the label is missing this information, ask the butcher.

Flat ribs tend to be cut vertically along one of the front ribs. However, a thick cut of short ribs and a wide cut of flat ribs would essentially be the same thing. I believe the Americans use the flat rib cut more and…
Baby back ribs are pork ribs that are smaller in size. Most UK butchers think that a baby back is small cut of ribs.
