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.

Yes beef back ribs are the same as short ribs. Usually beef back ribs are cut shorter than beef back ribs.

There is one major BIG difference. Beef back ribs come from beef. Spare ribs come from pork; beef has no "spare 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.

Baby back ribs are pork- Baby back ribs (a.k.a. loin ribs, back ribs, or Canadian back ribs) are taken from the top of the rib cage between the spine and the spare ribs, below the loin muscle. The designation "baby" indicates the cuts are from market weight hogs, rather than sows. They have meat between the bones and on top of the bones, and are shorter, curved, and sometimes meatier than spare ribs. "Spareribs" or "side ribs", are taken from the belly side of the rib cage, below the section of back ribs and above the sternum (breast bone). Spare ribs are flatter and contain more bone than meat. Beef short ribs are similar to spare ribs but cut from the cow not the hog.

Figure that half a rack of baby back or St. Louis pork ribs per person is not enough, but a full rack is too much (well -- for some people). If you're using beef ribs, figure 3-4 large ribs per serving and you'll be safe. Id' go got 75 racks of baby backs, 60 racks of St. Louis.

Short Ribs generally come from beef cattle. They are a popular rib cut from beef and often known as 'Jacobs Ladder' in the UK. They are a particularly tender cut of beef.

I could eat a whole rack of beef ribs! My uncle ribs me all the time about my red hair.

Not much. Short ribs are cut horizontally across the bottom of the beef rib cage, so a cut of short ribs will normally include 3 of 4 ribs in the meat. 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 the British use the short ribs, though I'm not sure.
