  • Find the short ribs! I don’t often have short ribs, Trader Joes doesn’t usually carry them. But when I can get them, this is an easy and delicious way to make them.

  • Flavors were good but did not like the cut of meat. Never had short ribs before and the photo looked wonderful. What I found is that I didn’t care for the small amount of meat for what seemed like a very high price. I will incorporate flavors into another cut of meat.

  • Sooo good. Delicious, melt-in-your-mouth ribs.

  • Delicious. Tender fall off the bone with amazing flavor.
