cook better with beer!
New Menu Ideas
Summer means grilling, outdoor lunches, fresh veggies, and fruity cocktails -- and we say bring it on. Whether it's a light veggie dish or melt-in-your-mouth ribs, there's plenty of great ways to get your beer on. Here are a few of our favorite beer inspired recipes:
Change up the traditional mimosa and wow your guests with a beer-infused mimosa that's light and summery. A nice cold Shandy makes any mimosa better.
Sangria - Lambic or Apple
Sangria is a great refreshing warm weather drink! But we make ours with beer and tequila, and it is infused with sweet Raspberry Lambic or tangy Hard Cider.
Make your own IPA Hummus! The result is a terrific smooth and creamy hummus with just a touch of citrus hop bitterness and zing.
Marinated and steamed with beer, the result is a moist, tear-off-the bone rib, with a tangy, sticky sauce that will make you glad you skipped takeout.
3. Create a rack to steam the ribs on by assembling a baking rack over a high sided sheet pan, or poke holes in tin foil and use to cover the rack of a roasting pan. Pour one beer into the bottom of the pan (do not fill high enough to touch rack). Arrange ribs on rack, bone side down. Reserve marinade for basting.
4. Bake ribs for 35 minutes. Baste ribs with marinade. Turn ribs over and baste again. Bake ribs an additional 35 minutes and repeat using all remaining marinade. Add beer to the bottom if too much has evaporated off.
5. Raise heat to 450 degrees F. Bake an additional 25 minutes until ribs are browned.
6. Remove from oven. Set ribs on drying rack aside. Heat pan drippings over medium-high heat and reduce until thick. Pour over ribs or use as a dipping sauce. Enjoy!!!
