I love boneless short ribs and was looking for a way to grill them for a bbq party. The sauce was the best part... smoky, thick and flavor packed! I wish I kept an eye on the temp - I let them get to about 190 degrees and it was drier than I would have liked but the end result was still a hit! The fresh garlic and onion in the sauce gave it a lot of depth over just plain bbq sauce. I had to keep myself from eating it up before my guests arrived. I will definitely make this again! Thank you!

I hate to rate anything this low, but I cooked these per the instructions and they turned out dry. We did like the sauce though.

Mmmmmmm....these were some good pieces of barbecued meat! We will fix these again. The sauce was really good too. I used A1 steak sauce, You could taste the steak sauce and the worcestershire even after simmering. So this will turn out differently depending on the steak sauce you use. I used dried minced onion 1T instead of chopping one. I only cooked this 45 min as I was using a convection oven and then on the grill for only 7 because they would have been overcooked and dried out if we had done the whole time as stated. Thanks, we really liked this dish!

Yummy. I used bbq sauce and ketchup instead of chili sauce because I didn't want it to be too spicy for my kids. I also didn't use celery seed because I didn't have any, and it didn't taste like it needed any extra salt or pepper. I put the sauce in the baking dish with the ribs and baked it for 45 minutes at 325 degrees, then grilled it on med-low for about 15 minutes. I basted the ribs with some of the sauce from the baking pan, and kept the rest warm on the stove for dipping. The ribs turned out very moist and yummy, but I think they would have been much too dry without the temperature-time changes.

The BBQ sauce that this makes is fabulous by itself! It's great to add to pinto beans as well!

Great sauce, however the pre-grilling instructions are a little off (in my opinion anyways). Usually when I cook ribs I throw them in a baking dish with some carrots/celery/onions and then fill the dish with water until they are completely submerged. Cover with foil and cook for 2.5 hours on 325C. Or, for extra juicy/tender ribs, 250C for 3.5 hours. Once that was completed, I picked back up with the recipe at step 2 and it turned out great.

This recipe was GREAT-- I followed the suggestions by previous members to make sure that the ribs didn't get tough. I served it for two dinner parties in a row and got rave reviews!!

I followed this recipe completely and the ribs were as hard as a rock. The only thing I could figure out was maybe the sauce should be simmered for the 30 minutes and then placed over the ribs before baking for an hour? Also the sauce was way to spicy so I added some barbecue sauce.
