Dave the Chef

This is a simple, yet tasty recipe that uses beef short ribs. The longer cooking time is definitely worth the wait. The sauce is excellent. Serve with baked potato and fresh sweet corn on the cob.

Fantastic is an understatement! These ribs were AWESOME! I was nervous since this was my first try at short ribs in the oven. Whew, I pulled it off without any troubles! Other than leaving out the celery (personal taste) and baking uncovered for the first hour and half ~ then covering with foil during the last hour and half, I followed the recipe step by step! Thanks so much for the great recipe, Dave! It's nice to find such a *winner*!!

These were great! I used the crockpot and cooked them for 8hr while at work and they fell off the bone tender. Wonderful sauce that I will use for other things I am sure! Super Easy! Thanks!


This has become a family favorite. My children love the flavor. It is also good over rice.
