Leave beef ribs in their original packaging and place them in the coldest part of the refrigerator, where they will keep three to four days. To freeze, wrap in heavy-duty aluminum foil, freezer paper, or freezer bags. Beef ribs will keep six to twelve months in the freezer. Defrost in the refrigerator, allowing 12 to 24 hours depending on number of ribs. Cook as soon as possible after defrosting.
