    Virgaux78's Note:

    I got this from the Better Homes and Gardens New CookBook, Bridal Edition (several years after I was married!). These are really tasty and easy to make. Served best with a tossed green salad and some corn bread. The sauce can be used for chicken or pork, too.

      Yum! I enjoyed the simplicity of this recipe. Because I just can't leave a recipe alone, I braised the ribs in beef broth & red wine with a dash of worcestershire. Also, I browned the ribs before braising. The sauce was super quick and simple...upon tasting, it was a little sweet for my taste, so I upped the mustard and added couple of dashes of worcestershire, plus a splash of coffee. Soooo delicious! Served with roasted fennel, mushrooms, pearl onions, carrots & celery. Definitely a keeper.

      I simmered the short ribs almost 2 1/2 hrs, but it they were worth the wait. They were tender and delicious. I didn't have chili sauce, so I made a different BBQ sauce. I can't wait to try this one next time.

      Very yummy! I added onion powder and garlic to suit our tastes. I used this on some short ribs and some spare ribs, too. Good flavor and pretty simple ingredients!
