pounds beef short ribs
cups beef stock
12oz bottle of chocolate stout
sprigs fresh rosemary
crushed black pepper
mini hamburger buns
pound creamy blue cheese
- Preheat the oven to 275 degrees. Heat a heavy pot or dutch oven over a high heat.
- Season the ribs with salt and pepper and sear in the pot for about three minutes on each side.
- Add the stock, beer, balsamic and rosemary to the pot. Put the lid on top and place in the middle of the oven.
- Cook for about three hours checking at the 2 1/2 hour mark for a sharp knife being able to pierce the meatiest part of the ribs. It should go in like it was butter.
- Once the ribs are cooked, transfer them to a plate and cover with foil.
- Pass the pot liquid through a sieve into a saucepan. Reduce on a high heat until about two cups are left. Taste and season with salt and pepper if you need it.
- Using your hands break the meat into chunks and place them back into the saucepan to warm through.
- Take a mini bun and place some meat onto the bun, pour some sauce over and top with a slice of blue cheese.
