    Question when the recipe says to discard juices then cover with sauce- you are not using any of the meat juices correct?

    This dish is my family's favorite, every time my grandmother comes to visit she asks me to make this dish.

    Wow!!! I love short ribs. Haven't been able to find too many good recipes. This may not be right in my budget line right now but I'll make 'em anyway. HA
