  1. Oh, I do love beef short ribs! These are a favorite in our house, and this recipe looks like something that would be perfect for a cold day. I bet the house smells so amazing when these short ribs + the garlic are baking away. Yum!!

  2. There is nothing as comforting as braised short ribs. And they are definitely worth the wait! I can definitely see this on our table as soon as it cools off. We have finally dropped below the 100°F/38°C mark. I love the touch of lemon zest for the finish!

  3. wow I am drooling terribly!! I love ribs, beef or pork…they are just divine. Love this easy and fuss free recipe. The hardest part is that you have to wait 3-4 hrs before you can devour them!!

  4. Love short ribs! SO good when braised in red wine. And garlic, of course — love that too. 🙂 Neat recipe — thanks.

  5. These braised short ribs are the type of dish my family would enjoy having for dinner.
