Dr. Pepper braised beef shortribs

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I typically use red wine as the braising liquid, but on the recommendation of another cook, I went with Dr. Pepper for this one.  I don't think it's better or worse than the red wine, just different.  It's not as sweet as I expected which is a good thing.  Absolutely delicious.

 

Here's the veggies and short ribs getting some smoke before braising, about 45 minutes in:

 

 

 

And here's everything completed, on a bed of mashed potatoes with a 1/4 of a smoked onion:

Recipe is for 2lbs of short ribs:

 

Preheat the smoker to 225 degrees.

 

Get your shortribs seasoned and ready to go on the smoker.  I use the same seasoning that I typically use for briskets.

Cut up 3 carrots, a medium yellow onion, and 3 stalks of celery and season them.  Place 1/2 stick of butter in a pan and add the veggies.

Put both on the smoker for about 1.5 hours.

 

After 1.5 hours, remove everything and crank the heat up to 300 degrees.

 

In the same pan that they veggies were cooked in, add 12oz of Dr. Pepper, a brown gravy packet and 1/2 can of diced tomatoes.

Add the beef short ribs into the pan.

Cover and cook at 300 degrees for about 4 hours, or until the short ribs are fork tender.
