Smoked Porter-Braised Beef Short Ribs
This rich braise is sweet, smoky and pleasantly bitter all at once. It comes from a Food52 member with the screen name hardlikearmour, who uses a smoked porter from the Alaskan Brewing Company. If you can’t find smoked porter, substitute a regular porter or another dark beer. Polenta is the ideal accompaniment for the short ribs and their luscious sauce, but mashed potatoes or egg noodles would also work well. Slideshow: More Short Rib Recipes
The short ribs can be covered and refrigerated in the sauce for 3 days. Reheat gently before serving.
These intensely flavorful, slow-cooked short ribs are stellar with a robust wine like Cabernet Sauvignon.
