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.

My first time making any kind of ribs. This was incredibly yummy. I used buffalo shortrib w/the bone, and added a chopped leek w/the veggies. I think that's what turned my stock & gravy green! Too funny, but it didn't slow down my dh and kids from enjoying it. I ended up w/6c stock total, which was a bonus. The drippings in the pan were SO good (I used bacon grease for the fat). Thanks, 'zaar, for being there when I gazed into my freezer for some meat to use up. Thanks, Derf, for a great meal.

Excellent! I added in mushrooms and did not strain stock. That way hubby can have gravy and vegies over mashed potatoes and son and I can have the whole meal. I had bones in short ribs and removed when tender. Thanks for posting!

This was a tasty & different way to cook up spare ribs. You are right - - total comfort food. It was a bit greasy for me, so the next time I make it, I will cut the fat down.

I served this to my DH and my DS and they both raved over it! The gravy was wonderful! Thanks Derf!
