Wonderful recipe! I love short ribs and the dr pepper sauce was divine. Mine wasn't greasy at all - browning them releases a lot of the fat that is often on short ribs (also try to pick really meaty ones). The dr pepper makes a great glaze with the ketchup. It's very tasty and tangy. I've made tons of short ribs recipes but so far, I think this is tops!

Although tender, this recipe was very greasy.
