2 Bay Leaves

2 Tbsp Black Peppercorns

1 Gallon Beef Broth

Method of Preparation

Brown short-ribs on all sides in an oven safe pan over medium-high heat

Remove short-ribs and add aromatics to the pan; reducing the heat to medium, cook until onions are translucent

Remove pan from heat and add short-ribs back to the pan on top of vegetables

Combine beef stock/broth with tomato juice, half of the peach nectar, half of the barbeque and half of the poblano peppers. Wisk to combine

Pour braising liquid over short-ribs and cover with parchment paper and foil, or a tight fitting lid

Cook at 325 until fork tender (2-2.5 hours)

Boil or steam diced sweet potato until soft

Using a whisk, or mixer with a whisk attachment; mix sweet potatoes while adding in the honey, cider and any extra moisture needed to achieve desired consistency/viscosity

Season to taste

Remove short-ribs from pan and strain the aromatics out of the braising liquid

Reduce the braising liquid by half to three quarters over a high heat.

Once reduced, add remaining barbeque sauce, peppers and peach nectar

If needed, use a cornstarch slurry to achieve desired sauce consistency/viscosity
