<span>SO DELICIOUS! I made an extra half-batch of the recipe to cover 13 short ribs. It says cook time 2 hours at the top but in the recipe it says 3 hours. That should be fixed. I believe I cooked them for three...2.5 with tin foil, .5 without... and they were great!</span><br /> item not reviewed by moderator and published
Followed the recipe exactly except doubled the sauce. The ribs fell off the bone. My husband loved these and asked me to make them again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We love short ribs. I baked them bone-in for the same amount of time...falling off the bone and so much more flavorful! This is a delicious recipe and very easy, too. I would probably double the sauce and add some smoke next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The ribs were absolutely delicious. My family could not get enough of them. I took some to work and my co-workers raved over them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Absolutely delicious! First time I made ribs with so little prep time. Since I had time, and started in the early afternoon, I let the meat marinate first for a couple of hours before popping them in the oven. They were scrumptiously fresh out of the oven by the time dinner was served. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Sweet and tangy never tasted so good! I have made these several times over the past few years and never had one complaint. My incredibly picky brother asked for the recipe! There are never any leftovers. I do double the sauce so I can put some on the mashed potatoes; only change I make. This will forever be in my recipe box! item not reviewed by moderator and published
We have made this at least a dozen times in the past couple of years and it has become one of our go-to meals. We serve it atop French mashed potatoes and everyone loves it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these as directed and at 300 for 2 hours, the sauce burned. I'm trying this again today except I'll be cooking them at 260 for 3 hours. We'll see how they turn out. I must have a hot oven. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These ribs were amazing! So easy to make, just mix up the ingredients, pour it on and bake. Can't wait to make them again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I needed a recipe and quickly ran to the internet, which brought me to this recipe. I put it in the crock pot due to other things happpening in the oven and even in the crock pot these were fabulous! I can't wait to try the oven version. Can't wait for everyone to try them. The sauce is easy and works perfectly with the cut of meat. I made it for a weeknight but can't wait to make it for company! item not reviewed by moderator and published
So I've made this recipe three times over the last year and honestly its my only experience with cooking short ribs. If the fact that I keep making this hasn't already let you know I love love love love this recipe. I've served it for a few guest on different dates and almost a year later I still have people calling to ask if I'm making it anytime soon. I followed the recipe exactly except for a dash of crushed red pepper and 2 table spoons of liquid smoke in the bbq sauce. Very simple and easy and the ribs just melt in your mouth when done. The above was my original review from aug 2012. I wanted to add one other change/tip I've developed with this recipe. Make twice the amount of sauce called for. Use half as directed by the recipe. Than for the last 30 mins of the cook time transfer the ribs to another pan and toss in the remaining sauce. That will truly help to caramelize the sauce on the ribs which will boost the flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I am making it now. I thought by seeing 5 stars many people had tried this recipe and thought it was good. After looking further at the comments, many people thought it was bland. I wish the Food Network didn't make you rate a recipe you haven't tried in order to make a comment. I look at the ratings to see who tried it and what they thought. item not reviewed by moderator and published

So easy, and this is my first experience with ribs AND bbq sauce. I was so thrilled with the outcome. We only had enough for the 2 of us, so I cooked them for 1.5 hours covered and half hour uncovered. For the sauce, I like extra so I made it to the same proportions, but we like it less sweet so I added a little more mustard vinegar and worcestshire. I liked that you could taste test it as you go, like I said, I've never made bbq before, and I don't think I'll ever buy it again! (well.. maybe in a pinch) We ended up having to make a bet over who got the last rib! Very very happy with this recipe. I will be buying up all the ribs when they go on sale, bc I'm not afraid of them anymore. I also will be bringing them to the next potluck party I go to, so I can be famous for a day. Great for superbowl, for example. Just be first in line, trust me. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Mt second time making these. It was EXTREMELY easy! The sauce was tangy and the ingredients are so common that most should have them in their cabinet or pantry. My family loved it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Low &amp;#39;N&amp;#39; Slowand soooo worth the wait! So tender and full of flavor. Sauce is on the sweet side but I still loved it. Definitely going to be a regular in my household! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Yum Yum Yum!!!!!!!!! This was awesome. Didn't have worchestire sause used a lil steak sauce instead. My husband loves it. Ribs produces a lot oil will try it on a rack next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
OMG I have made this twice, now. The first time our short ribs were so delicious that I could not wait to make it again, and my butcher didn't have short ribs again for months! I live in a very small town and every time I went to the store, I would look for those beef short ribs so I might have another taste. The BBQ sauce is so blessedly delish, exactly as written. I would not change a thing, and hubby tried to add a bit of his own bbq sauce only to tell me, "This changes the profile of the recipe too much" and promptly put it away. Amazing, delicious, succulent, perfect recipe. BRAVO! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Have made this recipe several times with different types of ribs. Love it! When the family craves bbq, this is my go to recipe. It has the perfect amount of sauce to cover them all, but not leave them dripping. Just the way we like them! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good recipe!I doubled the ingredients of the sauce to cover all my short ribs. My husband loved it, but my 3 and 5 year old don't like bbq sauce. It was a little too greasy for me. Next time I'll put it on a wire rack. Great Job Sunny! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Awesome have made several times with different types of ribs. I always double the sauce. Thanks Sunny item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very tasty and sweet. I am definitely not mad that I made this. It wasn't spectacular or anything, but it was very good! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yummy! I thought the sauce would be overpowering but the slow cooking time must help it to absorb nicely into the meat. In the finished product, the sauce is sweet and delicious. I have a hot oven, so my cooking time was 90 minutes under foil and 15 uncovered. Meat was falling off the bone. Excellent recipe - I will definitely do this again! item not reviewed by moderator and published

My first time cooking short ribs and they turned out great! I tried another recipe since and they were more like beef stew tasting. This BBQ sauce is really easy to make and you can keep it for other recipes and marinades. Easy to do in slow-cooker too... item not reviewed by moderator and published
Holy awesome BBQ sauce! My husband was skeptical that I even made it! Definitely a nice sweet BBQ sauce and the short ribs were delish! It was the first time I ever used this cut of meat and cooked it myself. Really easy....will definitely make again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the best short rib recipe I have ever made!!! So easy to make, cooked it on my gas grill in a cast iron Dutch oven and it came out perfect. The whole family loved it, will definately make it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Which is it: 2h 10min or 3h? The recipe says 3 hr, but at the top it say 2hr 10min. The video says three hours. I'll check how it's going at two hours. Three sounds about right, though. Can't wait to taste it! Five stars just for making my mouth water while reading the recipe . . . item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious and easy, a keeper. The only thing I did differently is salt/pepper the meat and brown the sides before I baked. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was delicious and so quick and easy. I will be using this recipe again. My son thought it was the best he ever ate. He's going to make it today for his family. item not reviewed by moderator and published
So easy and flavorful. The smell of slow cooked beef was wonderful. My only suggestion is to add a little more brown sugar, which I will do next time. I did not find the BBQ sauce as sweet as I would have liked... That being said I have recommended this to several friend. Thanks, Sunny. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Awesome and simple and the BBQ Sauce is fantastic!! Love it!!! amazing item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was so so easy and so freakishly good!!! I used bone in ribs and when they came out, the meat was tender and falling off the bone. I made a tiny bit of extra sauce on the stove top and when the ribs were finished separated the oil from the sauce and added to my stove top sauce- basted the ribs and put back in the oven for a few more minutes. This is a recipe to follow to the T. As is, no changes and it is wonderful!! Served with a vinegar based potato salad which was the perfect compliment to the sweet. My husband ate every last bite and asked that it be added to the dinner rotation! Also, the sauce is soooo easy and soooo tasty, I am imagining all the things I can do with it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love this recipe, so easy to make. The sauce is delic. Next time I will double the sauce mix for the beef short ribs so will have enough to go over either rice or potatoes. I did not have white vinger but had balsamic. I also added carrots to the menu. This will be one of my favoriates to make. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wow-What a wonderful way to prepare boneless beef sort ribs! We baked this in our smaller oval red Le Creuset enamel-coated cast iron baking dish in our Thermador professional oven after halving the sauce ingredients and using only 1.5 pounds of boneless beef short ribs and it was outstanding! Thank you, Sunny, for providing us this dynamite beef dish! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These ribs are so easy and simply amazing! I make them all of the time and they come out perfect each time. Sometimes I omit the thyme and they still taste great. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is awesome. It is so easy, and comes out perfect everytime. I used bone in short ribs, and it was perfect. I also sometimes use balsamic vinegar instead of white vinegar, and it is great both ways. I use variations of this sauce on pork loin and roast beef, and it always turns out great. This is one of my favorite recipes on food network. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I can't believe I didn't rate this recipe before. Made it for a pot luck and people were fighting over it... almost. Made again to take down to my parents, they also really dug it. *** These ribs are expensive. I found today, the university near my town has an "Ag Dept". Part of that is a meat lab. If you live near a college, check it out. Short ribs were $3.75 a lb *** item not reviewed by moderator and published
this was very tasty and is now one of my familys favorites! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Fair, not great. Browning the meat first, which was not included in this recipe is a time consuming step, but well worth it. Also, this recipe did not include any wine--an ingredient that adds a ton of flavor. Anne Burrell's Braised Short Ribs are MUCH better, in my opinion. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was alittle skeptical at first since I have always browned the meat before baking, but I thought if this works, it will save a time-consuming step in the future.. I prepared the ribs as stated in the recipe and it turned out perfect! I might try and double the sauce next time as it was awesome. Served with baked seasoned potato wedges and baked carrots and there was nothing left after my wife and 2 teenage daughters got done. Thanks Sunny item not reviewed by moderator and published
i think it's tasty. I have cooked this before, but not like you. today sept.12 i followed your directions. i never new i could make such a delicious meal. THANKS SUNNY. YOU ARE ONE ONE OF MY FAVORITES. YOUR FRIEND AND ADMIRER, YOLANDA CALDWELL. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Super Easy and Totally FANTASTIC!!!! Absolutely great recipe. I dry rubbed the meat with seasoning prior to pan searing the short ribs on each side before roasting them. I added red pepper flakes and cayenne pepper to the meat and the sauce for an extra kick. These ribs were so tender and juicy. No need to order them out anymore. They were perfect. I paired this with greens, cajun-parmesan crusted potatoes and yorkshire pudding. Will definitely make again, soon! item not reviewed by moderator and published
In all my many years of cooking, this is the first time I made short ribs. They were fabulous! The meat was tender and full of flavor. I was amazed at how much the ribs shrunk so I was glad I bought 4 pounds for 3 people; had enough leftovers to feed 2. The sauce was tasty; love the thyme in it. Once you skim the fat off the sauce, it was delicious over the meat. Would definitely make this again and will use the sauce recipe for other dishes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These ribs are wonderful. I made them for my family and everyone loved them, Including my mother who has never met a rib she liked until this one. But there is a lot of leftover barbecue sauce so we just save it and use it the next time we grill out of bake something with barbecue sauce. Thank you Sunny. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent! Better than restaurant ribs. I found beef ribs too fatty; I use pork loin country ribs, and double the sauce recipe so there's plenty for dipping. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this per my dad's request for his Father's Day dinner. He loved it! My oven was already full of other dishes, so I made this in the slow cooker (high for 4 hours). I would strongly advise tasting the sauce before pouring it over the meat. I thought it was way too sweet from the brown sugar, so I made a second batch of sauce without the sugar and then combined the two (other reviewers suggesting making extra sauce anyway). I also made this with chicken leg quarters and it also turned out great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The sauce was absolutely delicious. While I did not have any beef short ribs, I used a chicken. It was great. My family ate every piece and even chewed the bones. They thought the sauce was perfect. Next time I'll try the BBQ beef ribs. Way to go Sunny! All your recipes that I've tried have been very tasty, very simple and easy. Keep up the good work. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Over the past year I've prepared six recipes from Cooking for Real. These BBQ short ribs were so great! We have prepared these several different times, at our parties. Truly delicious! Sunny your food is excellent. You are a true chef. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was delicious! I couldn't find short ribs so I used country style ribs instead and it worked like a charm. Will definately make this again!!!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I tried these barbeque ribs and they were DELICIOUS!!! I used boneless beef country style ribs because that was all I could find. They were really good. My whole family loved them and can't wait for me to make them again. Definitely cook these ribs for 3 hours if you are like me and want your meat to be so tender that it melts in your mouth. I suggest that you double the recipe for the barbeque sauce because to me it was not enough sauce. I ended up having to make more sauce. Overall this recipe is a WINNER and definitely worth trying. Keep up the good work Sunny! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The flavor of the sauce was delicious, but the ribs had much less moisture than shown on the show. I was only able to find boneless beef country ribs. These must be different as they had far less fat/moisture. The ribs were delicious regardless and everyone gobbled them up. This recipe is a KEEPER! I will try again with the boneless short ribs and use the country ribs when I'm on a diet...lol! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Have never made ribs before. These were delicious... and so easy! I'll never buy BBQ sauce again. Thank you, thank you, thank you! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My second round is in the oven as I type. This recipe is ridiculously easy and tastes SO good. The flavor of the bbq sauce is perfect. You could even just make the sauce, throw it in a small pot to reduce and let the flavor meld, and use it for all kinds of stuff. This is how good Sunny's bbq is: My first attempt was slightly burned and made with meat that was just this side of questionably old. I knew if I made the meat pieces bigger, used a smaller dish so there wasn't as much empty space in the pan, and paid more attention to cooking time, I'd have the perfect meal! I think this would be awesome on a crusty bread roll too - slathered with some of the bbq sauce of course. (Btw - I use boneless short ribs cut into big chunks. It lessens the cook time a bit and makes them easier to eat! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Hi Katheryn. Like you, I haven't made this yet, but I have made shortribs, countless times, before. So, give this a try; make these shortribs, according to recipe, and let them cook for two hours; taste a piece; and if they are tender enough for you, serve them; but I have a feeling you are going to want to, cover them back up, and let them cook for another hour, uncover according to instructions, let them brown; then enjoy. I don't think you'll be disappointed with the results. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe sounds great and so easy. However, I haven't tried it yet because I'm confused with the cooking time - is it 2 hours (as stated in the summary) or is it 3 hours (as stated in the directions)? item not reviewed by moderator and published

Great recipe, I wasn't sure we would like it so I used about 2.5 lbs of short ribs. I should have used the whole 4 lbs! It was delicious. I added a little tomato sauce because we like extra sauce to put on the eggs noodles I served with it. I will be trying this with some chicken thighs next.

Some recipes on the network just don't turn for one reason or another. This recipe surprised us. The short ribs were delicious, tender and so easy to make. All my husband could say was "WOW" make this all the time. It is now his favorite and mine as well. Next time I will serve it over mashed potatoes but will double the sauce recipe. From now on I will try other recipes from Sunny Anderson. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is absolutely wonderful! Great sauce &amp; the meat just melts in your mouth! I followed the recipe exactly with a perfect result!

So good and easy! We love this dish a lot and on a day like today it makes the whole house smell wonderful!

Tender and yummy! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Wonderful and wonderfully easy. I used baby back ribs instead of short ribs (same thing). I poured the sauce on the night before i cooked. Fall off the bone juicy like it came from a restaurant. It was great to just mix the sauce up and pour it on and pop it in the oven and go on with the rest of your day. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Although the flavor was good.....3hrs burned my ribs, so I have to give it 3 stars. I really wish that someone would proof these recipes. So many recipes on the food network site have mistakes. I will definitely try this again but just not cook them as long item not reviewed by moderator and published
When I saw the episode, I had to try this recipe. Sunny made it look so easy breezy and extra yummy. The meat could have been a tad more tender as I like my meat to be on the verge of melt in your mouth. (Although some of the pieces were more tender than others so maybe it was just the way the butcher had them cut.) The bbq sauce was dee-lish! I'd make the sauce to go along with other dishes, it was so good! I made these short rib to go along with The Neely's easy rice casserole dish, some greens and honey cornbread muffins. Yum!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these as the main dish for a dinner party. My friends are still talking about them. They are melt in your mouth delicious and take very little effort, so I had plenty of time to entertain my guests. Try these! You won't be disappointed. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I made this recipe for my parents and in-laws on Father's Day, and it was a huge it! The only thing was that the butcher didn't have any short ribs left when I went there, so he gave me boneless chuck roast cut into large pieces. It still worked just great! Our guests raved about it! I bought a few pounds over what the recipe called for, and we still had barely any leftovers after the 6 of us ate. Will definitely make again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I am so intimidated by cooking ribs and this recipe was so easy-looking that I was eager to try it. Very tender. No full. Nice sauce. Only problem: it rendered a lot of oil and it was had to extract the rich BBQ sauce. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Sunny, these Short Ribs are OFF THE HOOK!!!!! I have wanted too try these ever since I saw you make them. I decided to try them today. I mixed up the sauce just like you said but I added some smoked paprika,cause thats all I had. Then I decided to throw in some siracha (Cause I'm a spicy kind of girl.) and some liquid smoke sauce.. That sauce tasted phenomenal!! I seared my short ribs, like someone suggested and cooked them a little over 2 hours. I served them with some corn on the cob, creamy cole slaw and some Mexican roasted potatoes. I ate myself into a coma! I will make these again and again and I"ll remember to make extra sauce next time. Great recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought this was alright. I tried the recipe twice. The first time, the meat seemed a little tough. The second time, I tried it in a slow cooker, and it was much more tender. Also, the sauce was okay. Overall, it was okay, but I wouldn't make it all the time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I did not like the meat as it was way too dry for me. I did not use bones as the recipe calls for boneless and I will try this with pork instead as it is more fatty and full of flavor...I did love the BBQ sauce though... item not reviewed by moderator and published

I made these ribs last week and what can I say except....FABALOUS! I absolutely loved the flavor of the ribs. This was an easy cook and the prep wasn't long at all. My boyfriend asked me what kind of meat it was because they were so tender and juicy! I did make some extra sauce to put over the ribs after I poured the grease off. Other than that, the recipe was awesome. Everyone can make these and call themselves a chef! I DID! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these short ribs last night and my husband said it was one of the best things I ever made. I did tweak the sauce a little but overall I stuck to the recipe. I let the ribs marinate over night in the bbq sauce and then 30 minutes before the ribs where finished, when I took of the foil, I put some more bbq sauce on the ribs. Yum Yum. I can't wait for the leftovers tonight. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My daughter and husband just LOVED the ribs, they were very easy to make. I didnt turn them over mid way, they still came out nice .

I had some pork ribs in the freezer last weekend that I needed to cook because they were nearing the date of expiration. Saturday morning I watched Sunny's show and there was a recipe! It was great that I had all the ingredients on hand and cooked them right up for Sunday Supper the next day. Everyone raved over them and said I needed to make them again very soon. Thanks Sunny! That great savory taste with just a hint of sweetness is too much to resist.....there were NO leftovers! item not reviewed by moderator and published

This recipe is very easy and tasty. The first time I made it dinner was late because at the top of the recipe is says there is a 2 hour cooking time, when actually in the directions the cooking time is 3 hours. Not to mention the reviewer that pointed out that on her show Sunny took this out and flipped the meat after an hour and a half. Is anybody at Food Network proofreading the recipes? item not reviewed by moderator and published
You forgot to add in the recipe that after an 1 1/2 hrs, you took the ribs out and turned them over to sear the bottoms. Thats what you did when I watched the show anyways. I did it and it was really good, will definatilly make these again. Great for family get togethers. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These ribs were super-easy to make, and tasted absolutely fantastic. I made a couple of minor changes - one is that I didn't have brown sugar (how did I manage to run out???), so I used white sugar, and then 3 tablespoons of molasses. Worked out great. The second change is that my family likes spicy, so I added about a quarter teaspoon of red pepper flakes to the sauce. We could barely taste any heat with the finished product, so I'll probably up that next time. My only other change is that I seared my beef ribs for about two minutes on each side, just to render out any extra at and give them a nice color. I do have to say that within one hour these ribs were absolutely falling off of the bone. I let them cook a little over three hours altogether, and the meat was oh-so-tender. I wish we'd had more sauce for spooning over! Next time I think I'll double the sauce recipe and reduce some of the sauce on the stove top to serve with the meat. I prepared this meal with mashed sweet potatoes, fresh bread, and butter beans (I simmer mine in chicken broth, with a big chunk of ham - for flavor - and some diced onion). This is no vegetarian meal, here! Thanks, Sunny, for an easy and absolutely wonderful recipe that everyone in the family completely enjoyed. Will definitely make again. And again. And again! **The one problem with this recipe is that it calls for a two hour cooking time, but then Sunny says to cook them for three hours, but that is an easy thing to spot in the recipe itself.** item not reviewed by moderator and published

Great recipe for busy Moms where you pop it in the oven, drive your children around, get home at dinner time and you're done! Since it cooks for 3 hours and you don't have to do anything to it until the last 30 minutes, (and then all you do is remove the foil) it is a very time efficient recipe and my son (very picky eater!!!) loved it! My husband and I both loved the flavor and tenderness of the beef. He was excited to have the leftovers last night. The only thing I would change is use a little less brown sugar. I am always trying new recipes but rarely make the same thing twice and this one is definitely a keeper!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I saw Sunny make this recipe and couldnt wait to try it myself.. DA BOMB!!! In other words it was terrific.. I love beef ribs...well any kind of ribs so trying to make these myself was my special project. Although I used the bone in kind of short ribs.. ummmm ummm ummm..
