"This recipe takes no time to prepare and results in the most delicious, fall-off-the-bone short ribs," writes Lamya Asiff of Delburne, Alberta. "The longer you cook them, the better they get!" TIP: "Serve them on a bed of rice," Lamya suggests.

"I made boneless beef short ribs using this recipe, and it was excellent. I did omit the seasoned salt, as I do not use monosodium glutamate. I will use this recipe again. Thanks for sharing."

"5 STARS!

I am not sure if the stars will show up when I post, but they are not there for me to click on now for some reason. I give this 5 stars because it is so easy and so good. I usually cook it a little longer than it says. And I usually don't add the onion or tomato and it's great that way too. My family really likes this one!"

"I don't make short ribs very often, but when I do, I will pull out this recipe. Unlike another review, there was lots of flavor. I did add a tablespoon of worchestershire sauce as suggested by someone. I also let it cook for about 8 hours on low. The meat just fell off the bone. Delicious over rice."

"Supper yummy, I really liked the fact that this recipe used fresh tomatoes and onions versus ketchup to make the barbecue sauce. This is really my favorite way to make short ribs. The Worcestershire sauce also gave it great flavor. I may add a little more next time. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. It's truly an amazing dish."

"I've used pork ribs as well with this recipe, In this instance, I changed to chicken bouillon instead of beef. This is a really good recipe that isn't too tangy to handle."

"This recipe is not good, I should have known when it first of all said to cook on low for only 4-5 hours although meat did appear cooked (no red) it was not tender and the sauce had not flavor as well en when thickening with the corn starch as directed in was still just a thin tasteless sauce with chunks of tomato:("
