These ribs have such a wonderfully complex flavor! I used boneless ribs but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Served it with red quinoa and a bottle of Peay syrah - outstanding! This recipe takes an awful lot of time to prepare, but it's so, so worth it!

I followed this recipe faithfully and thought it was very, very good. However, I cook ribs so seldomly, and part of me missed plain old simple ribs with barbeque sauce. I would use this recipe again for flank or skirt steak or chicken (obviously with reduced cooking time). While it is very flavorable, it just doesn't have the cravability factor that ribs can uniquely have if basted and cooked on a grill or smoker.

COUNTRYLADY; Thanks to KITTENCAL, who recommended your recipe to me. I too, could not buy any Short Ribs with Bone-in, so the butcher cut me the meat with no bone-in. I cut it into larger pieces and cooked it that way for 3 1/2 hours. The sauce was excellent, and I also used 1 cup of my dry red wine (and then drank the rest of the bottle) while the meat was simmering. GOOD STUFF. The spice blend was excellent and I ground my own Fenugreek, what a difference to have that nice spicy, pungent smell and taste. Thank you for sharing. I bought an extra package of Short Rib Meat and will be making another batch tomorrow. Enjoying with some Oven Baked Spicy Fries. "Uncle Bill"

One of the best short rib recipes I have made so far. I doubled all the ingredients as I have 4 people, including my son that can devour the whole thing himself! I just used plain butter and omitted the fenugreek as I did not have any around. The sauce from this recipe is to die for and the short ribs turned out delicious. Country Lady, I can't say enough about your recipe, it is fantastic! This will go into my favorites...thank you so very much for posting...Kitten:)

Very, Very Nice CL! Could not get the Beef Ribs so used boneless meat. :( But the flavours were wonderful. Cooked for only 3 hours as the guys got hungry with the aromas and forced me hand ;) Used only the 2 tblsp of ghee and all cayenne pepper though and served with Methi Rice and a veg salad. Thank you :) Fay
