These Braised Short Ribs are amazingly tasty, but I would save it for a not so crazy busy…

  1. Looks delicious! I’m making this soon! And yes – I love meatloaf because of the leftover meatloaf sandwiches 😄😄

  2. 5 stars
    Made this tonight! My husband and I both loved it!!
    Only thing I would change (for me, personally) is because I used ground turkey instead of beef, next time I’ll add a little garlic powder and onion. Otherwise – 2 thumbs up!
