  1. GUINNESS MARINADECut coarsely the vegetables for the marinade. Pour the vegetables into a container with a lid Big enough to contain also the meat. Add the spices and Guinness beer , and mix well. Now, massage the meat with olive oil and dive it into the marinade. Let's make sure that the meat is completely submerged by the beer and close the container with the lid. If you have not a lid, seal it with plastic wrap. Marinade the ribs into the fridge from 6 to 24 hours.
  2. STIR-FRY THE VEGETABLESCut coarsely onion, carrots and celery. Peel and crush the clove of garlic. Pour the oil in a dutch oven by the enamel finish, then add the vegetables and the sprig of rosemary. Stir-fry the vegetables until they are soft and translucent, then pull out from the pot and let's put aside.
  3. ROAST THE MEATFilter the marinade, save the liquid and eliminate the vegetables. Roast the meat into the dutch oven over high heat, a few pieces at a time. Stir-fry the pork ribs to roast all sides.
  4. BRAISED PORK RIBSWhen the meat is golden brown, pull out from the pot, then add a few tablespoons of liquid from the marinade and combine with the tomato paste. Add the stir-fried vegetables and the pork ribs. Cook a few more minutes, stirring, then add the rest of the liquid marinade. Cook over medium heat until the pot roast reaches a temperature between 160 and 190 ° F, then cover the dutch oven with the lid, and lower the heat. After 30 minutes, check the temperature and, in case, fix the flame. If you not have a cooking thermometer, consider that the pot roast have to gently bubbling. Cook the pork ribs 4 hours after starting bubbling.
  5. BROWN SAUCEWhen the meat starts detaching from the bone, pull out the pork ribs and store warm. Eliminate any remaining bones and blend the cooking liquid with vegetables. Pour the sauce again into the dutch oven, add 1 tsp cornstarch and cook over medium heat, until the sauce will be concentrated at least half. When the sauce is thick at the right point, add salt, turn off the heat and add the pork ribs. Store the meat in the sauce until ready to serve, then we heat it all over low heat, complete with a dash of black pepper and bring the dutch oven directly on the table.
