A heavy hitter of a food match

Share or Save

We love beer.  And we love food.  So we get particularly excited about a delicious pairing. We asked Marty @thebackyardcook to match a perfect frosty beer with his Shredded Beef Short Rib Flatbreads with Stout BBQ sauce 

Imagine beef short ribs, slow roasted, shredded, then tossed in a homemade stout BBQ sauce.  Then pile it on top of Huntley & Palmers Flatbreads with slaw and pickles. Yes, we have taken platters back from being all about dainty cheese and chutneys and landed it smack bang in the realm of meat, glorious meat.  And of course, beer, glorious beer.   

This recipe was created to feed a crowd and the Moa Imperial Stout is the perfect heavy hitting partner to add into the mix.  Both in the sauce, and in hand!

In the world of beer, stouts are black, strong and malty. This stout is a strong, upfront and rich beer.  Aged with French oak, it not only displays coffee, mocha and smoked cedar characters but also some sweet and savour notes.

Stout works well with roasted, smoked, and barbecued foods; braised foods; salty foods; oysters; chocolate; and desserts. 

The Moa Imperial Stout pairs perfectly with these slow roasted short ribs  which are as dark and delicious as the beer in hand.
