Guinness Braised Short Ribs By: Nick Hack
Nothing makes me more excited on a rainy day, then going into the kitchen and cooking a great comfort meal. When it is cold and rainy outside, I like to make one of my favorite comfort foods - Guinness Braised Beef Short Ribs. It is a fantastic meal that takes minimal effort to prepare and fills your house with wonderful aromas. The broth that comes from the slow cooking of the ribs leaves you with a wonderfully rich and flavorful sauce that has depth and character derived from the acidity of the
balsamic vinegar, the deep coffee and chocolate taste from the Guinness and the earthy flavor of the thyme. These flavors blend well with the beef stock, fresh herbs and vegetables to make a broth that is a wonderful companion to mashed potatoes or even a creamy polenta.
