For Kathleen O’Brien Price, food is a way of sharing her unique heritage with others. Kathleen is half Irish and half African-American, and her cooking style is a culinary mashup of the two cultures. Kathleen partnered with Vox Creative and Guinness to create a braised short rib recipe inspired by the flavors of Guinness Draught.

O’Brien Price’s recipe for braised short ribs pairs particularly well with the flavors of Guinness Draught. The bold, roasted notes from the draught beer hold up to the rich flavors of the braise.

Guinness Draught–Braised Short Ribs


Preheat the oven to 350 F.

Season each short rib generously with salt.

Coat a large pan with olive oil and bring to high heat. Add the short ribs to the pan and brown very well, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove ribs and set aside.

Using the same pan, add the onions, celery, carrots, garlic, and apricots. Sauté until it begins to brown, 5 to 7 minutes.

Add the cocoa powder, maple syrup, beef stock, and Guinness Draught.

Stir over medium heat until the mixture thickens and has reduced by about half, 4 to 5 minutes.

Pour the mixture into a Dutch oven and add the short ribs. Cover with lid and place in the preheated oven for 3 hours, turning the ribs over halfway.

The meat should be very tender when done, but not falling apart. Serve with the braising liquid and garnish with parsley.
