Beer as an ingredient in a recipe

Me and my hubby went out last night with some friends and I ordered a Mac and Cheese pasta with beer-infused cream...and I love it. To be honest that's the first time that I have tried a pasta with beer in it. It tasted soo good I couldn't get it off my head. And I would like to know if you have some recipes, good recipes there that use beer as one of the ingredients? I am very interested.

beer is great for all sorts of things. I use it as a braising liquid.

Then there's always Beer Butt Chicken........my all time favorite way to cook a whole chicky...

Beer Butt Chicken Recipe | Beer Can Chicken | Drunken Chicken Oven | Beer Can Chicken Rack

Something I do a little different from the enclosed recipe, is I pour about half the can of beer into the pan, and add 4-5 cloves of smashed garlic cloves to the beer in the can, that goes over the chicken. Cut a lemon in half, and cut side down, place it over the top hole where the neck was. Pull the flap of neck skin over the lemon half and secure with tooth picks. Throw pieces of the remaining lemon half into the bottom of the pan, and proceed with instructions.
The next day, the chicken carcass, with the remaining juices, and reserved "garlic beer" in the can, is the start for an outstanding chicken soup!!

beer batter for fried foods
beer can chicken
beer as an ingredient in chili (works very well...don't use water, add a can of beer!)
a famous Belgian Beef onion and beer stew, Carbonade a la Flamande, is delish!
add beer to a crab or shrimp boil
steam bratwurst (or hot dogs for that matter) in beer before grilling them
Welsh Rarebit (cheese and beer sauce)

P>S> to above. I carve the bird as it stands, eliminating the need for removing the hot can.

I add a beer to the crock pot with beef or pork roast...guess that makes it a braising liquid.
I've never made it, but there's a beer bread recipe here somewhere that everyone bragged on.

CUBAN ROPA VIEJA

Ingredients

6 pounds of flank steak
3/4 cup Delicioso Adobo seasoning, recipe follows
1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
6 bottles beer
1/2 cup canola oil
2 medium yellow onions, chopped
2 red bell peppers, cored, seeded, ribbed and chopped
2 green bell peppers, cored, seeded, ribbed and chopped
6 scallions, white and light green parts only, chopped
1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Cut the flank steak into large pieces and place them in a large bowl. In a small bowl, combine the adobo and the Worcestershire sauce to make a paste. Rub the paste into the meat, add the beer, and let marinate for 15 minutes in the refrigerator.
Transfer the meat, as well as the marinade to a large pot and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer until the meat is tender, about 3 hours.
Remove the meat from the pot and reserve the cooking liquid. Using 2 forks, shred the meat and set it aside.
Heat the oil in a large deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions, peppers, scallions, and tomatoes and cook until they are soft, 10 minutes. Add the tomato paste and meat to the pan along with 2 cups of the reserved cooking liquid. Cover and simmer until the juices cook down, about 15 minutes.

Delicioso Adobo:

2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons onion powder
2 tablespoons dried oregano
2 tablespoons lemon pepper
2 tablespoons parsley flakes
2 tablespoons achoite powder from annatto seed
1 tablespoon cumin powder

Combine all ingredients.


*I like to serve this with black beans, yellow rice, and plantains...so good
