I am finally going to try Molly Stevens' short ribs. One of the key ingredients, of course, is porter ale. As I never buy beer or liquor, can someone suggest a place where I can get porter ale? Would a supermarket or Whole Foods have it? A place in the W. Village or Union Square area is preferable.
Just to folllow-up
I actually did find it at Whole Foods (got the only single bottle of Porter ale, there were six-packs which could not be broken up) and then thought perhaps I would need more than just the one bottle, so I headed over to Trader Joe's and they, too had it .
I was not able to get any English ale, but I'm sure what I got is fine.
The short ribs are now in their "braising" phase and they sure look delicious. The recipe was less labor-intensive than I thought it would be, and part of the reason I had not made them before was befcause I thought they would be a lot of work.
Thanks for all the help and suggestions.
