In Mexico they are called Costilla de Res en Salsa de Chipotle
this recipe serves 4
4 pounds cracked (and trimmed of visible fat), short ribs..they should be about 3-4 inches long
2 cups chopped onion
3 canned chipotle peppers with 2 tbsp adobe sauce ( chipotle are smoked jalepenos & are packed in a vinegar spiced sauce called adobe)
2 1/2 cups chicken or beef stock
Hot steamed (brown) rice and lemon/lime wedges to serve
PREHEAT OVEN 400F
In a 4-5qt heavy Dutch oven lay the ribs, onions and tuck the chilies between the ribs.
Cover with 1 cup broth and cover tightly.
BAKE FOR 3- 3/12 HOURS..until meat pulls away from bones easy..it should not be falling off.
Uncover and bake until meat in browned..15-20 mins.
Using a slotted spoon, remove the ribs and onions to a warmed serving platter, and keep warm.
Add remaining broth to pan and bring to boil, scraping any browned bits from bottom of pan, and mashing the chillies.
