- Add onion, garlic, and seasoning to the pot, stir into the chorizo and ribs, and continue to cook for an additional 5 minutes.
- Add broth and water to the pot and bring to a full boil.
- Cover the pot and place in the preheated oven and braise until ribs are tender and falling off the bone, about 2½ hours. Cook longer if needed.
