Reviewed sunny's honey bbq oven short ribs

Jan 24, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Not bad... not incredible, but fixable. Adjust the rub to your tastes and try your favorite bottled bbq sauce.. nowhere as good as ribs on a grill or smoker but in the winter the principles are all here to enjoy ribs in the snow.

I just saw this on Sunday morning and decided to try it for a dinner party that same evening. Crazy, huh? lol I'm glad I took the chance because everyone loved it! I stuck to the recipe real closely, but made 5 slices of extra thick bacon instead of three, and I think next time I'll try 8. Also, you can mess around with the ingredients easily. I'd...

Make these with her Coq au Vin recipe from the same episode and you have a real winner!
Extremely potent by themselves but marry exceptionally well with the braising liquid from the chicken."

A few tips...
** splurge on a good bottle of red wine- I used a Cabernet because I couldn't find a Burgundy ( I know!) and I used a very plain Brandy but next time will try a better cognac.
**I put the dark meat in the bottom of the pan with the wings so I could "float" the white meat at the top of the braising liquid to avoid the...

Apr 3, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I doubled the sauce and found it just a bit too much but if I hadn't it would have been not enough. Remember when you are making a dish like this, the vegetables should be served still crisp. It wouldn't kill it to add pineapple chunks or tomato wedges. Dust the chicken chunks in corn starch before cooking to give the sauce something to hold on t...

This was delicious! I would have never thought to boil the garlic in with the potatoes. I need to work on the crumb topping to get it to brown, but otherwise this was so simple and everyone loved it!
I love Anne Burrell... she makes hard things look easy. ""

Wow this is a great dry rub! I didn't use it on brisket, I used it on triangle tip roast. I put it on six hours before I grill/smoked them with hickory chips. Made special for a yearly BBQ I go to. Everyone carried on about it. I'm def keeping this one.""

This was very good and so simple to do.
I bought the cole slaw bag at the grocery store and also bought a bag of shredded purple cabbage and two carrots which I shredded on a box grater. I added half a shaved red onion per another recipe I read and made the dressing as it says. You have to tweak the seasonings for your individual taste -...

Scrumpdillyicious! I've just found my next recipe to make for guests! This was very tasty and pretty easy. I had to make a couple of substitutions cuz of what I had... I only had two tablespoons of horseradish and no chives so I substituted a heaping tablespoon of minced shallot. And I had no Madeira so I used a half cup of Cabernet Sauvignon instead....

Try it the first time and stick as close to the recipe as possible and then tweak it from there. Everything has a def purpose. But do be aware... the recipe as written makes ALOT of...

I wasn't expecting this to turn out as good as it did! I, also cut the recipe in half and it was more than enough for 6 people. Or 5 really really hungry people. I can't eat pepperoni so I crumbled Italian sausage over the top and have to agree it was the deal maker! Even my buddy who eats anything I cook had to stop three bites into it and say how...

This was really good and SO easy! I followed the directions pretty much as they were with a couple of extras. The nice thing about this recipe is it adapts well to additions or omissions. I don't like pimento so I used roasted red peppers from a jar, I rendered about 5 slices of tavern ham from the deli, diced, in the butter before I sweat the onions...

OMG I can't believe how good this was! I've definitely found a new staple recipe, especially for the winter months when you want that comfort type food.
I only used 3lbs of pork and there was plenty of sauce. The flavor of the cinnamon allspice and cloves with the red wine and tomato sauce was a perfect balance, typical of Batali. I used...
