    This is a simple, yet tasty BBQ ribs recipe that uses beef short ribs. The longer cooking time is definitely worth the wait. The BBQ sauce is excellent.

    Fantastic is an understatement! These ribs were AWESOME! I was nervous since this was my first try at short ribs in the oven. Whew, I pulled it off without any troubles! Other than leaving out the celery (personal taste) and baking uncovered for the first hour and half ~ then covering with foil during the last hour and half, I followed the recipe step by step! Thanks so much for the great recipe, Dave! It's nice to find such a *winner*!!  -  30 Dec 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These were great! I used the crockpot and cooked them for 8hr while at work and they fell off the bone tender. Wonderful sauce that I will use for other things I am sure! Super Easy! Thanks!  -  26 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This has become a family favorite. My children love the flavor. It is also good over rice.  -  13 Aug 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
