    It sounds like it would be too sweet, but in the end it is just perfect. Great for the upcoming fall and winter seasons, fantastic aromas you can use up to 3 lbs of short ribs, with this recipe.  -  08 Sep 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I would definitely sear the ribs first next time and would also leave the water out of the sauce. The flavor was really good, but we prefer a thicker sauce.  -  07 Jan 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
