5 stars for sure - I used a tin of Italian style stewed tomatoes instead of the tomato sauce and I added small nugget potatoes 1 hour befor serving. Then I fork mashed the potatoes with some of the wonderful flvoured sauce over them. The meat was fork tender & moist. Definitely a do again recipe thanks Derf for posting

Very good short ribs - I used a can of diced tomatoes and chiles instead of the tomato sauce and it gave it a nice kick. I shredded the leftover meat and used the leftover broth with onions to make a wonderful soup (Iadded some fideo vermicelli, too).
