4 to 5 lbs beef short ribs, cut in serving size pieces

Salt and Pepper

1 medium onion, chopped

1/2 cup diced celery

3 tbsp salad oil

3/4 cup ketchup

1/2 cup water

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 1/2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

2 tsp seasoned salt

1 tsp prepared mustard

Arrange ribs in a 9x13x2-inch baking pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake at 425 degrees for 40 minutes. Meanwhile, cook onion and celery in oil in a small saucepan until they are tender. Add remaining ingredients; mix well. Simmer gently about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove ribs from oven; drain excess fat. Baste ribs with about half the sauce. Lower oven temperature to 350 degrees; bake ribs 1 hour longer until fork tender. Baste occasionally with remaining sauce. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
