Chef’s Recipe: Barbarian Beer Braised Ribs

Hundroog have no time to cook! Hundroog only have time to smash! But smashing all day make Hundroog tired and hungry.

After recently celebrating my roommate’s birthday with a keg, we have found ourselves constantly finding ways to work beer into our recipes which means a whole lot of braising. This recipe was made with someone who wants to set dinner and come back later to a finished meal.

Barbarian Beer Braised Ribs
Makes as many ribs as you can stuff in a pot

Ingredients
1 onion
2 bottles of pale ale
1 can of beef stock
5 ribs beef ribs

Barbecue sauce

Equipment
A large pot with lid
Knife

Directions
Coarsely chop the onion and toss it into the pot over a medium-high heat. Allow the onions to caramelize. Once they’ve softened, toss the ribs into the pot and sear them – just a minute on each side.

Once seared, add in the beer and stock and bring to a boil. For beer, I strongly recommend a pale ale like Magic Hat’s #9. Once the liquid has come to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cover with a lid. Let the ribs simmer for 3 to 4 hours, occasionally turning them.

Once the meat starts falling off the bone after a few hours, remove them from the liquid and slather them with your favorite barbecue sauce.

An alternative way to make these would be in a crock pot for several hours as well when you’re out raiding.
