Cooking Instructions

Louisiana Grills Executive Chef, Steve Grover (@supergriller), shows us how to braise these decadent Beef Short ribs in Guinness Beer. Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, the beef short ribs are first smoked for 1 hour to infuse that signature Louisiana Grills wood flavor into the meat. Then to break the rib meat down into an incredibly tender dish, it is braised in Guinness Stout Beer resulting in a deliciously rich and savory flavor. Serve with your favorite mash potatoes recipe to complete your dinner.  

Which Kind of Short Ribs to Buy 

You may see short ribs sold as a Flanken cut in which the ribs and bone are cut longways with a saw, but for this recipe, you will want a traditional style cut.

The spicy flavors of Mesquite Hardwood will help enhance the savory flavors of this recipe nicely.
