Guinness Braised Spare Ribs



More often than not this dish is served by either deepfrying the marinated spare ribs, grilling or barbecueing  them in your patio.  I prepared mine differently.  Marinated them with Oriental sauces  and chose an easy way out by cooking them in a pot, fuss-free!









Needless to say, I served these Guinness spare ribs with  my Guinness beer bread and they partnered each other really well, especially the sauce from the spare ribs.  No, no, my family members and I did not get intoxicated with an overdose of stout but my kitchen had a lingering aroma of stout till the next day!

Recipe for Guinness Braised Spare Ribs

Ingredients


  • 850 gm spare ribs cut into 4 inches length
  • 2 Tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 Tbsp light soya sauce
  • 1 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 1.1/2  Tbsp jaggery  or brown sugar
  • 150 ml Guinness stout
  • 5 cloves garlic -pressed
Method


  1. Marinate the spare ribs with the above ingredients except the cornflour, keep in the fridge, covered, preferably overnight. 
  2. Pour the spare ribs into a pot, add enough water to just cover the ribs.  Bring to the boil.
  3. Lower the heat, put the lid on and simmer till the meat is tender and cooked through.
  4. When you see signs of the meat pulling away from the bones, scoop up 1/2 a bowl of sauce, let cool.
  5. Continue simmering for a while.  Add cornflour to the sauce, mix well and pour the mixture into the ribs.  Give a quick stir to coat the ribs, turn off heat.
  6. Dish out and serve immediately.

    1. After cooking, you can't taste the stout. If you like more beer, then pour in a bit more while making the sauce.

    1. Rich flavour but you can't really taste the stout, only a very mild tinge of bitterness. Yes, I felt 'hot' after eating it!

  14. Dear Cheah,

    I have heard of this recipe but have never tried it before. I assume they are pork ribs as opposed to beef ribs?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yes, they're pork ribs. I suppose you can use beef ribs as well.

These cookies certainly do not need much introduction as they have been circulating among food blogs for quite some time, more so at this time of the year.   I've bookmarked this since last year and only had the time to make them now.  I made some plain ones as well as marbled ones. There are other flavours as well but for the time being, I can only make do with these.  Also this will be my last post before I take a break to celebrate the Lunar Chinese New Year with my family, relatives and friends.

Pumpkin almond crisps ~ CNY 2018 ~ 南瓜杏仁片脆饼

Chinese New Year is not too far away from now, in 2018, it falls on 16th February and we usher in the year of the Dog.  This is a very addictive crispy snack and it's different from my previous post of
Orange Sesame Almond Crisps for I used almond walnut powder instead of almond meal.  It tastes just as good.
