I was told in the past that Old Milwaukee adds good flavor. Would you marinate it or spray to the meat?
Beer recipes anyone?
I use a little beer to coerce the neighbors into coming over for some "Q". Lay them out like bread crumbs. When doing ribs, I add a little to the bottom of the pan to prevent drying. Whatever is at hand, nothing special.
I do agree that ingesting the beer is probably better than injecting it in the meat.
Either way GOOD LUCK!!
i tend to use beer,wine, spirits in most of my recipes. for main course,side or sauces. as a rule never cook with something you don't drink. and i mean drink for taste not get drunk.
as for beer, i look for it to impart flavor. i will use a good IPA or Guinness most of the time. for instance:
Guinness saute onions go great on a brat. sweet onion + brown sugar and bottle of Guinness . simmer for a few hours while your cooking.
now now now....never underestimate the call of the beast!!! hahaha. i always use cheapo beer for cooking..never a good one..i know fer' sure im not using a craft beer for a drunken chicken or a marinade for flank steaks..its gunna be natty lights,beasts, or keystones...always. lol.
Cook with beer? Sure, it's not just for breakfast anymore.
Seriously, you have never made beer can chicken before? You gotta try it.
Also, I will pour one in the drip pan when I do a brisket or roast. It adds a nice, subtle flavor.
ill throw a keystone, with a little crAwfish boil in there for my birds. tayyyy-stteeeeee!!! lol.
I cook with beer all the time. I use it in recipes that call for red wines quite often as a substitute. Typically for rich flavored dishes I will use a good porter or IPA. For just boiling brats, crawfish etc I use cheap beer (keystone, pbr, etc). I really like to make stews in the winter and using a good stout or smokey porter can really elevate the flavor. For my injected wings I mix 2 parts Franks with 1 part cheap beer then inject. A good marinade for steak is one porter mixed with coffee grounds.
