Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe is very good and has a very yummy sauce to top the ribs.

Ingredients You'll Need

3 to 4 pounds beef short ribs, cut into serving-size pieces
1/3 cup catsup
1/3 cup bottled chili sauce
1/4 cup molasses
3 Tablespoons lemon juice
2 Tablespoons prepared mustard
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper


1. Trim fat from meat. Place meat in a 4-to 6-quart Dutch oven. Add enough water to cover the meat. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until meat is tender, drain.

2. For the sauce, combine catsup, chili sauce, molasses, lemon juice, mustard, and red pepper. Place ribs on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Brush with some of the sauce. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat for 10 to 15 minutes or until heated through, turning often and brushing with sauce. Heat any remaining sauce and pass with ribs.
