There are far better recipes on here
October 25, 2011
To be fair: I used guiness instead of ale (another recipe on here for stout braised short ribs is spectacular). I also used 5 lbs of short ribs and 3 lbs of squash. And I roasted the squash before putting it in the slow cooker. Beyond that I followed the recipe.
It was not good. Bad flavor. The sauce's consistency was good but that's where it ends. The ribs were on the dry side, the squash tasted dreadful and I didn't even notice the tomatoes.
Perhaps it would have been better if I'd followed the recipe exactly, but I really can't recommend this in any form.

Delicious and Hearty!
October 23, 2011
I couldn't wait to try this recipe but my grocery store didn't have short ribs. So I improvised and bought a pot roast. It turned out amazing! The meat was falling apart and the tomatoes and squash were delicious together. I will definitely be making this dish again!
Pros: Impressive, Will Make Again

A simply delicious meal for a cold winter's eve.
December 5, 2010
This meal took all of 20 minutes to prepare and slip into the slow cooker. After 8 hours we enjoyed the tenderest meat that was falling off the bone. The sauce with the butternut squash made for a perfect fall/winter cold evening meal. Serve with mashed redskinned potatoes for a great, easy to prepare meal. Simple flavors melded so well.
