The rugged island of Montserrat is the only country in the world, besides Ireland, to celebrate St. Patrick's Day as a national holiday. The whole week is a festival honoring the Irish families who emigrated to the island to escape protestant religious persecution.
This recipe is easy and authentic and, owing to the beer, makes your house smell like a yummy roast baking alongside of a loaf of bread. On Montserrat, it is made with either beef spare ribs or oxtail. The recipe is interchangeable.
