Deviled Short Ribs 5 to 6 lbs short ribs 2 coarsely chopped onions 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper 2 Tbsp horseradish 1 1/2 Tbsp dry mustard 2 Tbsp Worshestershire sauce 1 Tbsp soy sauce Place meat in a large frying pan. Cover it with the onions. Combine all other ingredients in 2 cups of water and pour over the meat. Cook at a very low boil for 2 1/2 hours on the stove top. When done, you can remove the meat from the pan and thicken the juice with cornstarch or arrow root to make gravy if you want, or just boil it a bit to make a reduction sauce. To make gravy, put a couple Tbsp of arrow root or cornstarch in a little bowl and add a small amount of water and stir thoroughly. Add this mixture to the boiling meat juice in the frying pan, and stir until it boils again.
