Chipotle-Glazed Beef Short Ribs

"This recipe from Canadian Living is not as spicy as you would think. I myself can't eat real spicy foods but I managed these quite well. You can marinate them from 8 to 24 hours. Marinating time is part of the preparation time."

  • Add the beef ribs and toss to coat.
  • Refrigerate from 8 to 24 hours.

  • Skim the fat from the pan juices, reserving 1 tablespoon fat for the sauce.
  • Set the pan juices aside.

<p>I live with my husband, four cats, and a sweet mutt named Jada in Scarborough, Ontario, where I work as an elementary school administrative assistant. I have a 31 year old daughter who lives with her boyfriend in nearby Don Mills, along with my sweet granddogs, Frankie and Turbo. I would have to say that my passion is animals, since I have so many of them! <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><br />If I had a month off work to do what I please, I would first catch up on my sleep and then just have fun - see a few movies and maybe take a couple of short trips - something that wouldn't break the bank - lol!</p>
