2 Good Hints for Using Beer
1) When boiling shrimp, try using beer for the cooking liquid. Season as you wish, but don't overcook. The flavor is marvelous - a little reminiscent of lobster.
2) Use beer in place of water or stock to make an excellent beef stew. This is what the Belgians do-it's called a carbonade.
Use beer for the liquid in breadmaking. Gives the yeast a boost and makes nice moist bread. You can even use flat beer for this. I can't imagine it, but if you have part of a can left in the refrig. it would work just as well as opening a new can. --Jayne
Take a roasting or frying chicken and shove a can of open beer where the "sun don't shine" spread margarine or butter on the outside with salt and pepper and pur it on your grill over medium heat. It makes a juicy and tasty chicken. Just make sure to remove the can before serving. (Just kidding ;)
I have been trying different beer bread recipes for a while and I think I have finally come up with a good one.
1 bottle of beer (preferable stout, lighter beers seem to leave a baking soda taste) at room temp
3 cups of self-rising flour
3 TBLS of sugar
3 TBLS of honey
1/4 cup of melted butter
Mix ingredients together and grease a bread pan--bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees, or until the middle bounces back.....
This bread is stout and thick, it is not light and fluffy...it is good with stew...it is a hearty bread!!!
Saute some sliced onions in beer & then add kielbasa and simmer for a while. Then add some cabbage wedges & cook until cabbage is done as you like it, crisp or tender. Yum.
Beer instead of milk for making pancakes is great.
Also using flour and beer for making those wonderful fried onion rings is the best. Try it...you'll like it!
Add it to chili! Yum!
