Glazed, Braised Boneless Beef Short Ribs 
Boneless beef short ribs are the muscle portion of the short ribs derived from the 6th 7th and 8th ribs of the primal beef rib cut.  They are a bargain cut, flavorable, hearty and tender if cooked long and wet.  Orange marmalade is a great glaze since it is tasty, strong and holds up well when grilled or braised.  It gets quite dark when braised.  We served the ribs with a tossed salad and TLW's wonderful but mysterious creamed rice and cheese casserole (she won't write up the recipe).  This dish takes only about 15 minutes to prep.  Here's how:
