This was a delicious meal, but I made a few changes and would use less of the house seasoning. I used red wine vs. water in mine and next time I will add mushrooms while cooking. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just scrumptious !! I was leery of the cooking time being only 2 hours so I did cook mine at 325* for 4 hours but they were definitely fall off the bone tender. (I cooked both with bone and boneless ribs together. You could smell these cooking outside of my house and they smelled wonderful. After browning, I did not transfer them to casserole dish, I just cooked them in same pot (dutch oven Beware though that your pot will get pretty brown and takes a little elbow grease to get clean, but it is so TOTALLY worth it !!!!! I will make this recipe again and again. You have got to try it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My mother in law made this for my husband and me after having my son, and it could not have been a more perfect meal. I am making this tonight for the first time, and it is roasting right now. It smells awesome so far!! Serving with some asparagus risotto!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My whole house is smelling good right about now. It is not done as of yet,but I have high hopes for this dish since I found the meat on cleareance at grocery store and have never cooked this before. I did follow recipe to the T and didn't make the mistake that others have with the house seasoning. Will update once family has eaten the meal. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love this recipe. It's a little salty for my taste, so I just used a little extra water and not so much beef broth during the roasting portion the second time I made it. Goes great with mashed potatoes too. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Good short ribs! Please do not use 1 cup of salt as in the house seasoning recipe. The house seasoning is given to be used on a number of things if you'd like. I'm sorry but I couldn't help but to laugh when I read that some people had dumped the whole cup of salt in the short ribs. No it doesn't say how much but you usually season to taste. Just a little common sense is good when cooking, you don't have to be an expert cook and I definitely am not an expert. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've tried this recipe twice now and it is a good, basic way to cook short ribs. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was excellent. Of course watching Paula's shows you know the House Seasoning if made with the amounts listed is to be used in several recipes. Made exactly like the recipe and served over buttered noodles. It was great and my husband thought it was delicious. I did put in a casserole dish with a lid and it was perfect. Timing was on spot. Left in the oven on low, when making the buttered noodles. Will make this again and again. Must say that I used the boiling liquid to make a thin gravy and boiled the noodles in beef broth with butter. Spooned the gravy over the noodles with the short ribs. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I loved these short ribs, they are the best. I served mine over creamed potatoes with roasted green beans. I know I will serve these again and again, it was simple and easy to make. item not reviewed by moderator and published
