WARNING: This is NOT diet food! This is our favorite way to eat beef shortribs--the sauce is delicious, the onions get meltingly tender, and the meat just falls off the bones! While technically this should serve 4, I usually double it just to have enough for the 3 (or more like 2 1/2, since DS is little) of us plus a little leftover for a lunch. We just love it that much!
- Preheat oven to 350* F.
- Rinse ribs to remove any bone fragments and pat dry. Combine flour, salt, and pepper in a large Ziplock bag; add ribs and shake until well coated.
- Lay ribs in a roasting pan or casserole (at least 2 inches deep). Top with onion rings.
- To make sauce, combine remaining ingredients and mix well. Pour sauce evenly over ribs and onions.
- Cover and bake at 350* F for 2 1/2-3 hours or until ribs are very tender. Serve with onions and sauce.
