Beer Braised Short Ribs

This Beer Braised Short Ribs recipe is another winter warmer. I personally like to use a stout (dark beer) but most people tell me its too rich, so this recipe is just a lager – but feel free to experiment. You do not need to use your most expensive craft beer, rather drink it!
