Brandied Cranberry Short-Rib Stew

Paired with: Deschutes Brewery Black Butte Porter

This silky, complex Oregon porter has notes of cranberry, chocolate, and warm spices, plus a hint of citrus. Browning the ribs and adding cocoa powder, cranberries, ginger, and orange zest make the stew sing in the same key.
