I have been on a cooking with beer binge lately. Made a Beer Crust Pizza (http://www.dfw.com/2011/08/15/494033/grilled-pizza-with-rahr-beer-crust.htm) a couple of weeks ago. Last week I made a Beer Can Chicken (http://www.dfw.com/2011/08/22/497015/beer-can-chicken.html).

Steve,

The first link did not work but the second worked fantastically. That beer can chicken looks quite amazing, thanks for sharing.

To say it with Julia: I love cooking with beer, sometimes I even put it into the food :)

I sometimes pour beer diluted with water into the bottom of a broiler pan when cooking chicken thighs or thick pork chops. One my favorite beer based dishes is Carbonnade Flamandes.

Beerbraised shortribs was a huge turning point for me and cooking. I was just amazed that I could cook something that tasted that good. It was one of the Chef Instructers favorite recipes and I was hooked big time. So much that the rest of my time in school was focused on beer and food that on graduation the instructers where asking when I was opening a brew pub.

Beer and food still dominate my food experiences today and I have no intention of ever stopping :p

Best carne asada I ever had was marinated in and basted with beer.

+1 on the short ribs, DC. I do mine in Porter & Port. Quite yummy!

Beer battered chicken/shrimp were extremely popular awhile back, makes for a very crunchy yet fluffy texture. I still brine my ribs and whole chickens with it.

Beer battered fish has been a go-to recipe for a long time and for the same reason. Hell, you can even mix beer with Bisquick and come up with a tasty fish batter.

Bisquick beer batter... Sounds interesting. Might have to give that a try.

Bisquick is kind of like the WD40 of low budget cookery.:biggrin:
