This recipe comes originally from the "Meat lovers Cookbook" - It is easy to put together and wait til you taste them.they are awesome - I served them with noodles and a green salad I sometimes add 3 cloves of garlic with the BBQ Sauce - Play with it to suit your taste.-
This recipe will produce the most tender tasty short ribs,. I use rendered bacon fat for this that I store in my freezer for extra flavor in place of the oil, you may increase the beef broth and wine for more sauce if desired and add in some crushed red pepper flakes for some heat, I most always increase the broth and wine and serve this with hot cooked pasta, the sauce is delicious and don't forget to pass the Parmesan cheese at the table ---and if you find you have lots of sauce left over just freeze it and use it the next time you make this recipe again :)
I have made this recipe many times using baby back pork ribs, the sauce from this is amazing, I have even added in a bottle of barbecue sauce in with the other ingredients! All ingredients can be doubled and adjusted to suit taste ---I most always serve these ribs with homemade fries or potato pancakes, see my recipe#129156 --- If you prefer a more spicy sauce just increase the cayenne or add in some crushed chili peppers to taste --- make certain to roast the bones in the oven for about 45 minutes before cooking them in the sauce it improves the flavor.
Rub the ribs with dry seasonings to coat well and leave in the fridge for at least a minimum of 8 hours, 24 hours is even better --- If you want to save time, you can just omit browning the ribs, and add in the onions and garlic right into the sauce, I prefer to brown first --- this is very good!
These flavorful ribs can be made ahead of serving, which both heightens the flavor and makes it much easier to remove excess fat from the dish. Short ribs are the meaty ends of the rib bones - choose cuts from the chuck, which are the most flavorful, or from the rib, which are a bit leaner. Adapted from Cooking Light.
