Chinese Pork Ribs in Guinness

Inspired by “Guinness Spare Ribs” but mostly is my concoction


  • 2 lb chopped pork ribs (available in Chinese stores or have the butcher cut the ribs into 1-in pieces)
  • 6 fluid ounces Guinness (half a bottle)
  • 1/2 large onion, chopped
  • 2 fluid ounces dark soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 fluid ounces sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • three scallions, thinly chopped (preferably chopped the last minute to preserve the flavor and not stink up your kitchen)


  1. In large bowl whisk together all the ingredients except the ribs and scallions.
  2. Place ribs in a 2-qt glass baking pan and pour the marinade on it. Cover with Saran wrap and marinade overnight.
  3. Take out the ribs and set oven to 400 F.
  4. When oven is ready, cover the baking pan with aluminum put it in the oven for 30 min.
  5. Remove foil and raise the temperature to 450 F, leave it there for 15 min.
  6. Heat a 12-in pan and pour the contents of the baking pan into that pan, let the sauce reduce until thicken.
  7. Immediately mix in the chopped scallions. Turn off the heat, cover for two minutes, and serve immediately.
