Melt-In-Your-Mouth Short Ribs Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 5)
Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
I usually only try recipes that have been reviewed many times and have a good average rating. But, when I saw this recipe I knew I would love it. I was not put off by 2 out of 4 people that did not like it. Neither should you be. If you like the taste of meat cooked in beer (which is a little bit different, if you've never had it you may not expect what it will taste like) you will love this recipe. There is only one thing I would change (very small) in the whole thing: Chop up a couple of shallots and saute them with the garlic in a very small amount of oil or butter before you add them to the slow cooker. The shallots give it that extra umph and browning the garlic a little bit improves the flavor of the entire dish. Also, make sure you choose a nice dark beer, and one that you like. You will taste it. Enjoy! Its worth it!

I used regular onion soup mix with 1 cup of water, and 1 cup of beer (Alexander Keiths) and the taste was amazing. The meat was so tender that I found the bones sitting in the bottom of the crock pot, and the sauce mixture was delicious. The sauce was so good that I baked bread so we could have hot roast beef sandwiches the following day. I will definitely make this again, but may slightly reduce the thyme from 1 tsp to 1/2 or 3/4 tsp.

I did not like these ribs. They had little to no taste. Wife was mad.

this is an amazing recipe. my kids who range from 4 to 10 just ate these up and they usually don't eat anything new. the ribs were done in about 6 -7 hours on low heat but i kept cooking them another hour or so and i could not pull a piece of meat out by the bone. they just slid right out and the flavor was amazing. i love guiness so i did not hesitate to use it in the sauce.
