Did You Know……Beer??

Here are 2 fun tips on what else beer can be used for:

1) Turn out fluffier pancakes and waffles – If you like flapjacks on the puffy side, sub your favorite lager for the liquid called for in the recipe.  You’ll be amazed at how light and airy they turn out- and how the flavor gets kicked up a notch!  Also try using beer when making Matzo balls or baking bread.

2) Cook Juicy Chicken- Prop a whole chicken over a half-full can of beer (the can goes in the cavity) and season with salt, pepper and spices.  Then place it vertically on a hot grill or a pan in the oven – the beer evaporates into the bird as it cooks, creating a supermoist chicken.  DELISH!

    But that would require not drinking it. LOL

    1. Thats why you save a little on the side 😉

  2. The pancake one I THINK I heard about but have never tried. Might be time to do so. The beer can chicken is GREAT.

    Great tips. Thanks.

    Love the site. Do you think the beer can chicken recipe will work for turkey as well?

    1. I have never tried it with a turket but im sure that it would work as well…if you try it with the turkey let me know 😉

    In addition to lagers, lots of other beers work well in pancakes and waffles: raspberry wit, blood orange hefeweizen, and even mocha porter!

    1. Thanks for sharing will have to try them 😉
