Easy simple and delicious. And tender is right, the meat was falling off the bones.I threw this together this morning and this evening we had a yummy dinner. The gravy was a nice change from the usual barbeque sauce.

Very easy recipe and had good flavor. I did not get it on when I wanted to and had only six hours in the crookpot. I sarted out on high reducing to low. After six hours thay were tender and flavorful. The only thing that I did different was to add some liquid smoke to the recipe. I will try it again when I can get the full 8 to 1o hours on low and see what happens.

I had a very busy day ahead of me and a regular was dropping in for dinner so this was the perfect recipe. Easy, no care and very tasty. I put everything on a platter kept it warm in the oven while I thickened he gravy- Enjoyed by all thanks Dibs

I made this for my family's Christmas eve party and it was decent but I probably wouldn't make short ribs with this recipe again. The meat was falling off the bone which was nice, but I didn't think the flavor was much of anything. I doubled the sauce and then when all was said and done we didn't end up making any gravy. Maybe we would have like it more had we made up the gravy. Will post pic soon. Thank you for posting!

Interesting flavor! The only thing I would do differently is add more liquid as there just wasn't enough gravy when it was all said & done. Very good, different than anything I've tried. Thanks Dib!

I browned the ribs in the veggie oil until I saw no more red. Glad I did. After assembling the rest of the stuff into the crock pot I looked at the pan that was cooling down on the stove and saw a 1/4" inch of grease congealing. I too turned the water into wine and proceeded with the recipe as is. Dee lishus.

These were falling off the bone, very good meal. Easy to throw together before work and ready to eat when you get home.

I followed the recipe exactly except I substituted 12 ounces of red wine for the water and added 8 ounces of sliced mushrooms. It was excellent. The flavours were superb - nuanced without being brash. The left-overs were also great. A keeper.
