As requested, here is a NON MEAT recipe. It's another (yummy!) beer bread recipe.
Beer is great as the liquid in a chicken stew. I also use it as an ingredient in rice - like a dirty rice or stewed rice. Try it. That is one of my "secret" ingredients when I cook.
You can use the beer as a rinse for your hair after shampooing. Gives it lustre.
Also you could use it as the liquid in biscuit mix.
Beer Bread is a great way to use up a bottle of beer. This recipe calls for a can rather than bottle and I think there might be a difference in amout but not sure as I am not a drinker. Here is the recipe..hope you enjoy.
2 -3/4 cups flour
2 TBSP sugar
2 TBSP Baking Powder
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. thyme
pinch of garlic powder
pinch of dill weed
pinch of chili powder
(or any combination of spices that you like)
Mix dry ingredients and add 1 can of room temperature beer. Mix till just blended .
Place on greased cookie sheet ( kind of scoop it into a loaf looking blob) and bake at 375 degrees until golden brown. Enjoy!!
I brush mine with melted butter when it comes out of the oven. Hope this helps
Make a batter for onion rings and mushrooms.
1 cup flour
1 cup beer
1 tsp. salt
Let sit on counter for 1 hour before using.
It's been a long time, but I remember making beer batter for onion rings and fish...equal amounts of beer to flour (12 oz beer to 1 1/2 c flour). Be sure to flour the food to fry before dipping in the beer batter. Deep fry at 375 and drain well on paper towels. Salt while still steaming hot. Now I'm hungry for fish and onion rings!!
I always keep a bottle of beer for cooking, often instead of wine depending on the meal. It adds a great taste for steaming sausages before grilling, in cheese dishes and whatever catches my attention. Going flat doesn't make a difference for cooking.
