This week’s posts will be showcasing the absolutely fabulous Guinness Barbecue Ribs…YUM!!! I have been a huge fan of pork ribs my entire life, and you may have noticed that I love cooking with Guinness beer. When you put those two ingredients together…..Perfection. Do not for a moment think that this sauce is only to be used on ribs, oh no no no. This is a barbecue sauce to be used on chicken, salmon, burgers, with steak, basically anything you can get your hands on!

How to make Guinness Barbecue Sauce:

Pour all ingredients into a medium sized sauce pan, and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat and simmer for 20 – 30 minutes.

Serve immediately, or store in a sealed container in the refrigerator.

  • Guinness the word, the harp logo, and the signature are all registered trademarks.  I do not work for them, and I am not paid by them to use their beer in my recipes.  I just really, really like cooking with it!
  • Feel free to use whatever Irish stout that you would like, this is merely my suggestion.

  2. I love the idea of this but my roommate isn’t a huge fan of beer… Would he still be able to enjoy this sauce, or is it for beer lovers only?

  3. How long do you think you could store this sauce? A week or so? Would love to make a few batches to give as gifts.
