It's another Foodie Friday, and with St. Patrick's Day right around the corner, here's a great recipe as an alternative to traditional corned beef and cabbage.

These beer-braised pork ribs are cooked in your slow cooker and use Guinness Stout Ale to impart a rich, delicious flavor. Cook on low for at least nine hours, and you'll have fall-off-the-bone goodness your whole family will love!

Your shopping list is below, and then watch the video to see how it's made. Enjoy!

And please send me your photos!
