I have made this recipe four times and I think I have finally perfected it I brown the ribs really well first and then saute the onions in the drippings for a bit. I add everything to the crock pot with two additional ingredients--minced garlic and parmesan cheese. I also cut down on the sugar and add a bit more crushed red perpper. It takes 3-4 hours on low in the crock pot. My husband likes it served with mashed potatoes but I prefer rigatoni--tonight I will serve it with both!



I am a Culinary School graduate and have been in fine dining for a long time. And I have to tell you that this is one of the best Short Rib recipes I have ever made or tasted. It is simple and delicious! It is even better the next day. The the only thing I do different is add Shiitake mushrooms to the mix. And I serve the ribs over garlic mash.

We like short ribs and I prepare them several times each winter so I am always looking for new. This is an excellent recipe. I have found the best way to reduce the fat content is to oven-brown the short ribs prior to adding to the sauce. Place bone side down in a pan, sesaon with pepper & salt roast for 45 minutes at 450. Drain off fat. If ribs are large return to oven for 15 minutes more. I was reluctant to try this the first time but it's the only way I pre-pare them now. I got over 1/2 cup of fat from the 2 1/2 lbs ribs I used for this recipe. I browned the onions in a dutch oven, added a a couple minced garlic cloves, and about 1/2 broth to the sauce ingredients and then the browned ribs. Baked covered at 325 for 2 1/2 hours. Served with parmesan mashed potatoes. They were moist and succulent. Received rave reviews with request for promise to repeat.
