Beer Braised Short Ribs

Who wouldn’t want a recipe for fall off the bone beer braised short ribs that are cooked in one pot?!

Beer Braised Short Ribs

Last year one of my closest blogging buddies Sophia brainstormed the idea of hosting a Beer Month with reviews, tastings and of course my favorite part – the recipes!



I am far from a beer aficionado and can’t wait for next month to come when John Grayson is born and I can enjoy a nice cold beer on the back porch during a cookout. But until then a little goes in the food, and then John enjoys the leftover refreshment.

Beer Braised Short Ribs

Last month when I started brainstorming recipes for beer month it pained me a little bit to not be able to enjoy the beer that I was cooking with. I stayed a little safe on my choice of beer making sure I have had it before but decided to step out on my cooking. I had never cooked with short ribs and figured why not try it now?!

Beer Braised Short Ribs with Cinder Bock Beer

So the idea for some beer braised short ribs and Parmesan smashed potatoes was born. And we all know that John appreciates a meat and potatoes kind of meal. His dad even came up to visit up last week and I prepared this again!
