Submitted by: Gabriel Beauséjour, Montreal

“Nothing says Christmas like a steaming bowl of Guinness spare ribs. Enjoy a feed of ribs in front of the fireplace while watching a Christmas movie with your favourite people. Wash it all down with a good stout and you’ll forget all your cares. This is an easy recipe that tastes great. ”


  • 3 lb(s) spare ribs
  • 1 litre(s) Guinness
  • 2 cup(s) chicken broth
  • 1 large onion (or more, if you prefer)
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled (optional)
  • 1 bottle of your favourite barbecue sauce

Cooking Instructions

Cook the ribs in the beer, chicken broth, chopped onion and garlic cloves for about an hour and a half. Once they are done, pat to dry using a clean cloth or paper towel. Brush generously with the barbecue sauce. Be sure to reserve at least a quarter of the sauce so you can baste the ribs again while they cook. Let stand for 15 to 30 min. Heat the barbecue or skillet to high. Place the meat on the grill and lower the heat to medium. Grill on both sides until browned, about 10 to 15 minutes. Brush with barbecue sauce if desired.
