I don’t cook beef short ribs that often. In fact, never. We’re more a pork ribs-making household. But, I ran across this simple idea for Mexican beef short ribs from CD Kitchen and decided to give it a try. The end result is pretty ‘beefy’, but with a little Mexican flavor to back it up. Great over rice. Surprisingly fantastic and quite the plate of comfort food.

Mexican Beef Short Ribs

These Mexican beef short ribs are great just as they are. The nice thing about this recipe is that you don’t have to make it ‘Mexican’ if you want to change it up a bit. Substitute whatever seasoning you want for the taco seasoning.
