A new year also means new collaborations with my lovely beer company Unibroue! These beef short ribs with Raftman beer are a simple recipe but filled with flavours, developed with one of my favourite beers! Perfect to warm you during those cold winter night but also perfect to cheer you up in the summer time!


  • pounds bone-in beef short ribs, cut crosswise into 2″ pieces
  • Olive oil
  • 4 big garlic cloves
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 5 double smoked bacon slices ( 1 cm thick ), cut in big cubes
  • 150ml dark rum
  • 341ml Raftman beer from Unibroue
  • 250ml coca-cola
  • About 3-4 cups veal stock
  • Salt and ground pepper


  • In a big pot at medium temp, heat a drizzle of olive oil and sear the meat for 2-3 minutes on all sides. Season with salt and pepper. Remove meat from pot and reserve in plate.
  • Add the garlic, onion and bacon and cook for 5 minutes while stirring often. Add oil if needed.
  • Deglaze with the rum and scrape the bottom to grab all those flavours! Add the meat, beer, coca-cola then pour enough veal stock to cover the meat. Stir well, bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium-low.
  • Cover to 80% and braise for about 2h30 / 3 hours or until meat is ultra fork tender. Stir gently from times to times and splash the meat with juice. Scoop off fat regularly. Serve with a potato and carrot puree.

Our wine stewards suggest

+- 15$Château De Gaudou Tradition 2014

We need something strong! A classic cahors to decant 30 minutes to an hour before serving, in order to enjoy all the licorice, cassis ans roasted hints it has to offer.

+- 30$Lucente 2013

A hyper seductive super toscan with hints of cherry, tobacco, liquorice and wood. The woody accents will perfectly complete the smoked and caramelised notes of this meal to make it an amazing evening.

Quadriporter, Le Trèfle Noir

These short ribs cooked with a beer with malt whiskey and with smoked bacon will pair well with this smoked rye Porter. Sweet, smoky and spicy, this beer with bacon flavors will be more than great along with these ribs.
