“I made this one up as I went along. I just wanted plain ribs - just as I like just about all meat plain, and I came up with this recipe”
2hrs 40mins

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 lbs chuck beef short ribs
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 onion, sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. I tried to get the membrane off the ribs, but was not successful, however, I think it would be best if it was removed.
  3. Season meat as desired, I didn't use any seasoning at all.
  4. Put the ribs with bone side up (curved side up), in the dish. Place sliced onion on top of the rib.
  5. Pour water BESIDE the ribs, not over them, leaving the onions on top of the meat.
  6. Cover with foil, cut slits in the foil. DO NOT REMOVE FOIL AT ALL DURING COOKING.
  7. Cook for 2 - 2.5 hours, depending on how "done" you like it.
