Very good. You can make it even better by making your own beef stock with the bones. Either remove them yourself or ask the butcher for them if buying boneless. Smear them with a little oil and a couple tablespoons of tomato paste; roast them for an hour at 400 F; put in a pot with twice their weight in cold water (about a gallon for 4 pounds of bones) and bring up almost to a boil, then simmer for about 6 hours. You can also add some peppercorns, parley stems, a bay leaf or two and some mirepoix. Use this instead of canned stock, and freeze any that's left over. It is vastly superior to the commercial stuff.

You can probably skip the gelatin in the recipe if you do this, since the bones will add a good deal of their own to the party.

Delish!! We used bone in (because that's what was on special this week). Made just as directed. When I saw it was Doctors recipe, I knew we'd love it, right on again.

Wow, this meat melts in your mouth! I used bone in short ribs and left the bones in, then skipped the gelatin part because the bones thicken the sauce up. I also cooked it in my crock pot. Served over egg noodles. Next time I might add mushrooms and put the carrots in after the meat has cooked a while so they won't get as mushy. Short ribs are so cheap that I was looking for more recipes to use them, and this hit the spot.

Great recipe. I prefer 1 carrot and 2 celery stalks instead of the 4 carrots. Rounds out the flavor. Love the gelatin idea. Very tasty....mix in some sour cream and you have a braised stroganoff. Elegant and robust.

This is a great recipe. The meat melts in your mouth. I made pretty much as directed with no problems, it was very easy. The only thing I did different was making a roux and stirring in the strained broth to make my gravy.

Fabulous recipe! Followed the recipe except I added mushrooms with the onions and didn't strain the liquid, just served everything over mashed potatoes. My DH really enjoyed it and even my picky 8yo liked it. Will definitely make this again.

This is a great recipe. You can also use 1 cup of Guinness (or another stout) instead of the wine and skip the "reduce by half" step in Step 3. Add 1/2 cup of chopped prunes at the same time. Delicious.

This is a great recipe. I personally don't strain out the onions and carrots, I like to eat them. I cook for 3 hours so the meat is fall apart tender!! I sometimes add mushrooms as well. I serve over mashed cauliflower instead of potatoes. Freezes well.
