These do require a few hours to be tender, but they are so worth the wait!
Preheat your oven to 325 F
Cut your ribs between each bone to create individual sized ribs
Place a large frying pan on medium heat on the stove and cook bacon fat, onions and tomatoes for a couple minutes, until tomatoes start to break down
In the same pan as your onions and tomatoes add the short ribs and braise for 1-2 minutes per side
Place the contents of the saucepan and the remaining ingredients into a roasting pan (lid on) and cook at 325F for 2 1/2 hours. You can stir these a couple times if you like.
Serve and enjoy!
Make sure and use a large roaster or Dutch oven so these can braise nicely in the oven.
