OUTSTANDING! Derf, these ribs are delicious, well worth the effort! I kept the veggies after straining the broth and put them back in, since that looks like what you did in your picture. I used bone-in short ribs, removing the bones after boiling. Edited to say that OF THE 350 RECIPES I REVIEWED IN 2008, THIS HAS GONE INTO MY TOP 20 FAVORITES COOKBOOK.
