1 medium carrot, peeled and roughly chopped
1 medium yellow onion, roughly chopped
1 rib celery, roughly chopped
3 sprigs cilantro

1 bay leaf
1/2 cup canola oil
4 (6-inch) long short ribs (about 3 pounds)

1 (5-ounce) bottle hot sauce, preferably Cholula® Original Hot Sauce
1 (12-ounce) bottle beer

for the slaw:

1/2 medium white onion, thinly sliced
1 lime, zested and juiced

2 tablespoons roughly chopped cilantro

Directions

1. Cook the ribs: Heat the oven to 325°F. Place the garlic, bell pepper, jalapeño, poblano, carrot, onion, and celery in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped. Set aside.

2. Tie the cilantro, parsley, and bay leaf together with string and set aside. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high. Season the ribs all over with salt and pepper and cook, turning as needed, until brown all over, about 10 minutes. Place on a plate, then add the vegetables to the saucepan and cook until soft and the liquid has evaporated, about 20 to 25 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste and cook 2 minutes more. Add the hot sauce and cook 2 minutes longer. Add the beer and beef stock and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Return the short ribs to the saucepan as well as the herb bundle and bring to a boil. Cover, then place in the oven. Cook until the ribs are soft, about 3 hours.

3. Make the slaw: Toss all of the ingredients together in a bowl about an hour before you’re ready to serve. Cover and refrigerate until ready to plate.

4. Remove the ribs from the oven and set the ribs aside (remove and discard the bones). Strain the liquid, discarding the solids. Place the sauce in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer until thick and reduced by half, about 15 minutes.
