Beer isn’t just something you crack open after a long, hot day in the Texas sun. Brews of all kinds can be used in your summer cooking, too! Here are a few ways you can use beer in recipes:
1. Use the can – We’ve all heard about beer can chicken. The steam from the brew adds so much flavor to the meat! Here is a great recipe for a beer-filled bird.
2. In marinades – A simple marinade loaded with flavor from your favorite beer can transform your everyday grilled steak into Dad’s new favorite recipe! This Beer and Brown Sugar Marinade sounds so tasty.
4. For braising – Just imagine slow-cooking your favorite ribs in your favorite dark beer. Voila! These Stout-Braised short ribs sound just right.
5. In cake – What better therapy than a great beer PLUS your favorite cake? You can use a delicious IPA to make the filling and the frosting and select a lower hop beer for the cake. This Lemon Beer Dream Cake is on our list!
