My Favourite Short Ribs

"This is a very simple to prepare dish which you can make up to two days ahead and then reheat - the flavour only gets better! It is wonderful served with scalloped potatoes and carrots or beets."

    This made the most luscious sauce. Because of competing demands for the oven, I finished this by simmering on top of the stove for about 30 min (rather than uncovered in the oven), and for that reason I browned the ribs first. I also used homemade turkey stock, because I had it handy. But otherwise prepared the dish as written. Just wonderful. I used bone in ribs, and for us this was really just two servings.

    I just made this dish and we all loved it thank You. I will make this one of my favorite meals. Very easy and very tasty.

    I made this in my new pressure cooker. Other than the cooking method, I followed the recipe closely, except that I browned the ribs first and added the cornstarch at the end. The ribs were fabulous - so tender, and the sauce was very nice. Leftovers were at least as good as the original offering.

    This is very delicious comfort food that creates gravy without any work. I used boneless short ribs that I browned after dusting with flour and omitted the cornstarch and the heating of the first few ingredients. Next time I am going to blend all of the sauce ingredients beforehand so the gravy-like sauce will become smoother.


<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>
