Delicious Ribs with Ramblin’ Road Country Pilsner

This is one of the French Family Flavourites! So after years of rib recipe trials and t-ribulations, here’s the recipe they have created and selected to share with the Ramblin’ Road Community!

 

 

Ingredients:
2 1/2 pounds of pork side ribs (about 1 big side )
1 Tbsp. dry Italian seasoning
2 small cooking onions, peeled and quartered
water
AND…
1-2  bottles of Ramblin’ Road Country Pilsner
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 cloves garlic (or more if you LOVE IT), minced
1 tsp. dijon prepared mustard
1/4 tsp.ground ginger
1/8 tsp.ground cayenne pepper
1/8 tsp.ground allspice
1/8 tsp.ground cinnamon
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1 tbsp. corn starch

Cooking instructions:
Carefully remove the thin membrane from the bone side of the ribs.
Cut the side of ribs into 3 – 4 equal sections and place in a large deep pot with the onions and seasoning. Add water to just cover the ribs and pour 1/2 a bottle Ramblin’ Road Country Pilsner into the pot. Set the remaining bottle of Pilsner aside (or just drink it because it’s really good!).

Bring to a boil and simmer 1 hour. When done, drain. In a roasting pan or casserole dish place the ribs meat side down and in a single layer.

While meat is cooking:
Prepare sauce a small saucepan by combining remaining bottle of Pilsner (or pop open a second bottle if you finished off the first earlier) with soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, mustard, ginger, cayenne pepper, allspice and cinnamon.

In a small bowl mix the pineapple juice and corn starch and add it to the mixture in the saucepan. Bring the sauce to a boil and cook, stirring constantly, until thickened.

Pour sauce over the ribs. (You can cover and refrigerate at this point until ready to cook)

Bake uncovered at 375* for 30 minutes (45 minutes if refrigerated) , turn over, and continue cooking an additional 15 minutes or until browned and dazed ( I mean glazed!)

The Erie Beach Hotel

Erie Beach Hotel

Erie Beach Hotel

A short trip from the Brewery Farm, the Erie Beach Hotel is located in Port Dover, a picturesque port town. Becoming one of the first licensees to carry Ramblin’ Road beers, the Erie Beach Hotel became an extended part of our family. Patrons have been able to pair the delicious dishes prepared at the Erie Beach Hotel with Ramblin’ Road draught in the Terrace Room and bottled in both the Terrace and the Cove Room.

Ramblin' Road and Perch

Ramblin’ Road and Perch

For over 60 years, three generations of the Schneider family have looked after the Erie Beach Hotel, serving recipes passed down through the generations that have kept people coming back. In the summer the dining areas will always be bustling with vacationers, day trippers and the locals, all anticipating the freshest and most delicious sea food.

For those looking for the port town experience, an ice cold pint of Ramblin’ Road Country Pilsner, paired with a platter of Perch is recommended. Both represent the true local flavour of Norfolk County.

For other meat lovers, the Country Pilsner can also be paired with the delicious wings in the Terrace Room.
