For the short rib:
The day before you are ready to cook generously season the short ribs with salt and black pepper. Reserve in the refrigerator overnight.

Transfer the mixture to a braising pan with the short ribs and braise covered in a 300 degree oven for 4-5 hours until tender and beginning to fall off the bone. Once cooked remove the meat from the braise and press. Portion into 4 oz portions once cool. To heat when ready to serve combine 1 cup braising liquid, 1 cup chicken stock and the hoisin, with the short ribs in a sauce pan. Reduce and spoon the liquid over the meat. Once a thick like glaze is achieved and the meat is hot, serve.
