10. Cover the pot with a lid and transfer it to the preheated oven.

11. Braise the short ribs in the oven for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, or until the meat is tender and falling off the bone.

12. Once the short ribs are cooked, remove them from the oven.

13. Serve the chipotle short ribs hot, garnished with chopped fresh cilantro.

14. Enjoy the flavorful and tender chipotle short ribs with your favorite side dishes, such as mashed potatoes, rice, or roasted vegetables.
