German-Style Short Ribs Recipe

Our whole family is excited when I plug in the slow cooker to make these fall-off-the-bone tender ribs. We like them served over rice or egg noodles. Husband Mark and I have eight children, ages 16 years to 3 months, whom I homeschool.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 2, 2012

I was very pleased with this recipe. I thickened the broth with a little cornstarch, and the result was a wonderfully flavorful gravy that had some barbeque undertones. It was a little sweet with both the chutney and brown sugar, so next time I plan to reduce the sugar. Yum!

This was fantastic! I had all the ingredients except the chutney, so I substituted orange marmalade. Next time I'll use the chutney.
