If I had to choose a LAST meal this would be it

That is very high praise! We're glad you enjoy this recipe. :)

Can't wait to do it again!

Sounds GREAT---Gonna try it real soon---We love short-ribs---

Hmmmm... wonder how this recipe would be if I used pork ribs? and maybe add a clove or 2 or garlic??

Great flavor but won't be a repeat. Ribs were chewy, not falling off the bone, and I followed the recipe EXACTLY. Waste of $12 worth of meat, as it went in the trash.

Must be a whole lot of stupid to throw away!!!Instructions say Cook 1 and 1/2 to 2 hours or until ribs cooked to desired doneness

Hi foodies, This recipes brings back a lot of mouth watering feelings to me.Sunday suppers with my family may God bless them and you all. "OOH IT'S SO GOOD!!

jrowen38237 8989205 -- Thank you sooo much for the helpful hint to enlarge the type size. Can't wait to try it when I'm printing the recipe! :-)

Going to try this. It looks great.

Served this last night - yes it can easily be adapted to the crock pot - I cooked the ribs until the meat was falling off - then added the cloves and continued to simmer. It was so good, we are going to have the leftover tonight with mashed potatoes. Easy, great recipe!

Yes, this is such a good recipe.... It is so nice to see a good review instead of people crying & bellyaching over something free all the time.... Some people really crack me up; they need to get a life & grow up....

@jrowen - That is awesome, I never knew you could do that! You rock!

Just as I was thinking surely this could be modified to move to hotcrock pot for working persons. I'll try this to see.

When recipes can be adapted to a crock pot, in this case the short ribs, your working fans and on the run moms would appreciate it!

There should be a way to enlarge the print for us elderly people.
