These were just so so but the Pecan Green Beans were wonderful.
My experience was exactly the opposite of ggleon's. When I checked the boneless short ribs after the 1.5 hours, the meat was nice and tender. However, we didn't care for the sauce. I added some marsala wine to counter the tang from the mustard and vinegar. I wouldn't make it again.
I tried this for dinner as I am always looking for a different way to make short ribs for my husband. Very nice recipe but needs a bit of tweeking.
As is, the flavor was very good but the meat was a bit tough. I'd definitely cook longer next time, maybe 2 to 2.5 hrs. Seasonings very actually good, though I would reduce the amount of rosemary to 2 tsp (I over did it a bit and put in the same amount for all the herbs) and add garlic! :) maybe some chopped onions and add a bit of red wine. Otherwise, good and easy! Enjoy!
