King Porter Stomp Short Ribs
Our chocolate porter King Porter Stomp is one of those beers that seems to go well with just about everything. Whether a main course or dessert, the chocolate notes and roasty flavors in King Porter Stomp make it perfect for nearly every meal.
We charged our Head Chef JP Thomas with coming up with a recipe using King Porter Stomp, and he didn’t disappoint. These chocolate porter short ribs will hit the spot, with the subtle chocolate notes in King Porter Stomp bringing out a variety of flavors in the beef, chasing away the winter doldrums. Serve with your favorite mashed potato or risotto recipe for a meal everyone will love!
“Short ribs are delicious,” JP says. “I used to do a dish that was coffee and chocolate rubbed braised short ribs, so I played off of that idea for this dish. The short ribs are rich because of the high fat, so when you braise them for three hours, all of the beefiness and sweetness of the ribs will come together. The sweetness of the ribs and the dark, caramelized flavors of the beef will be enhanced by the beer.
“Also, it’s just a sexy dish.”
