Mango Beer Braised Beef Spare Ribs

Mango Beer Braised Beef Spare Ribs. Using beer in cooking is just like using another spice or flavor in the dish. Just like other spice and aroma ingredients it should not be overdone. Beer will add some bitterness and sweetness to a braised dish. Our dish for today is a good example the fruity mango beer will add some fruity sweetness and mild bitterness to our sweet salty and bitter braised recipe.

The beef spare ribs is slow cooked with beer plus some of my favorite braising sauces and aromatic spices for hours at low heat.

Here is the recipe of my Mango Beer Braised Beef Spare Ribs.
