Came across the recipe and just HAD to try it. The meat was amazing and fell off the bones as promised. I did have to make a substitution - I did not have canned tomatoes, so I used a pint of grape tomatoes sliced and it gave the sauce a wonderful fresh taste. The tomatoes kept their integrity very well. I also added a scotch bonnet that I pierced but left whole. That gave that little extra kick that to the dish that was wonderful!

The sauce this recipe produces was delicious. I used a 14.5 oz can of beef broth and just used the whole can. I didn't care for the fattiness of the short ribs; would use a different cut of meat next time and add a few pieces of haberno peppers to give a little more zest for my spice addicted family. Great recipe. Thanks.
