Coffee-Braised Short Ribs Recipe

When the leaves start falling, I crave comfort foods like hearty slow-cooked stews and braised meats. I love this recipe because short ribs that cook until tender smell and taste impressive, but are super easy to make.—Melissa Turkington, Camano Islands, Washington

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 9, 2013

This was not a bad flavor but just too much grease for our family. No matter how much you brown them, that many bone-in beef ribs ends up in too much fat after 6 to 8 hours in a crockpot. Plus I am a lazy cook...I don't want to put something in my crockpot that I have to spend all of that time browning on top my stove first.
