If corned beef and cabbage just ain’t your thing, here is another option – ribs marinated in none other than Irish beer.
Surprisingly, these ribs had more of an Asian flavor than you would have expected due to the sesame oil and soy sauce. The recipe was a keeper just the same.
The husband loved these ribs.
Yes, they tasted good. But that’s not the reason.
It’s because I had to buy a six pack of Guinness beer to make them. I only actually needed one beer for the marinade. So guess what happened to the remaining five.
Poor guy, our pocketbooks usually only allow us to buy brews along the Coors Light variety. So the beer, in addition to the ribs, was a real treat for him.
Guinness Pork Ribs
For the ribs:
- 2 pounds pork ribs
- 12 ounces Guinness stout
- 1 large onion sliced
- 1/4 soy sauce
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 1 tablespoons minced garlic
For the glaze:
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 3/4 teaspoons ground black pepper
Place ribs in a large pan or resealable plastic bag. Combine marinade ingredients. Pour marinade over the ribs. Place in the refrigerator and marinate for at least eight hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Wrap ribs in a double layer of foil. Place ribs in the oven and bake about 1 hr and 30 mins.
Combine the glaze ingredients. Reserve half of the glaze for later. Apply the other half of the glaze generously on the ribs. Bake unwrapped for an additional 30 mins.
Allow ribs to rest for 15 mins before serving. Drizzle with additional glaze if desired.
