A question about a recipe: Cabernet-Braised Short Rib and Chanterelle Cobbler

I have a question about the recipe "Cabernet-Braised Short Rib and Chanterelle Cobbler" from Brooke Bass | Chocolate + Marrow. Can I make this dish in a large / deep cast iron skillet?

yes to nancy; pottery dish or souffle dish would also work fine.
uninvited comment: chanterelles are the most sublime of mushrooms, in cream and/or whitewine-based sauces or soups, risotto,pasta etc. They are wondrous and v. expensive and not in season in u.s. during our cold winters. use other mushrooms. i use regular white mushrooms in my boeuf bourgignon, which is v. similar to this dish, sans cobbler.

Not sure.

I'm generally cautious about using such acidic elements a long time in cast iron (despite the recipe photo showing a Staub cast iron casserole).
This recipe has both wine and tomato (in the form of paste) and cooks a long time (2 1/2 hr).
I would recommend stainless steel or enamelled cast iron instead.
