Reviews for German-Style Short Ribs
"I followed this recipe as written. It was amazing! The sauce is divine and the meat was super tender. I served the ribs over egg noodles."
"Excellent recipe! The meat was so flavorful, moist and tender. As it cooks it makes quite a bit of juice, which has a wonderful flavor. The only change I will make next time is to increase the amount of tapioca for a thicker gravy. My husband said of all the many recipes I've tried on him this one is definitely a keeper!"
"Excellent! I made the full recipe, even though there are only two of us, anticipating great leftovers. I cut the vinegar and brown sugar to 1 tbsp. each and added a little extra wine to compensate. We weren't disappointed; the ribs were even better a day or two later. I increased the amount of tapioca for a thicker gravy; 1/4 cup was just right."
"Great recipe, I've made this several times and my husband and I love them! Would make for company it's so good."
