recently I read on the net that marinating meat in dark beer before grilling reduces the polymines by over half. Naturally I book a cookbook on the discount rack about cooking with beer. The recipes maybe a bit Nomad specific but life's like that sometimes.

Dark Ale Lamb Tagine

2lbs 4 ounces of leg of lamb, boned and cut into 1 1/2 inch cubes
1tsp ground cumin
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp ground cilantro(coriander)
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp tumeric
1/2 tsp celery salt
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tspcardomon
2 cups dark ale.

mix all of these ingredients in a glass bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let marinate in the refrigerator for 24 hrs.

Next 2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion halved and sliced
1/2 dried thyme
2 strips of lemon peel, yellow part only
1 cup beef broth
3 carrots cut into batons
1 cu[ pitted prunes
2 cups frozen peas
optional chopped cilantro for garnish

Bring marinated lamb to room temperature. Put a tagine or fireproof casserole over medium high heat and add the oil. Sweat the onions for 5 minutes, add 2 garlic cloves and cook 5 more minutes
Take the lamb from the marinade saving 1 cup of marinade for latter. Add lamb and brown over high heat. add thyme and lemon peel and cook for a few minutes more. Add broth and marinade and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, add lid and simmer 45 minutes. Add carrots and prunes and simmer 45 more minutes. Add peas and cook 10 minutes.

More recipes will follow as time permits.

I just cooked with beer the other night:

Non-Grain bed for Chinese Food Plate

Finely chopped cauliflower
Finely minced small hot green chili pepper
Finely minced fresh ginger
Olive oil
salt
Ale
Chopped cilantro

I sautéed the ginger in some olive oil and added the hot pepper and the cauliflower.
Added salt.
When well coated, warmed and sautéed,
Added just enough ale to steam, and covered.
Waited a few minutes 'til cauliflower was just tender to the bite.
Tossed with plenty of cilantro.

Served as a bed for Chinese food.

Dear gcg,
that Tagine looks extraordinary!
Love the prunes, too.
Substitute fresh peas in springtime if you can, for a lovely fresh touch.

I made a version of Cuban Black Beans soup earlier in the week. Of course I used navy beans and 2 bottles of Samuel Adams instead of black beans  and water.

Next goal: to debug the German Cheese and Beer Soup in the cookbook. It uses wheat flour to make a roux to start with and I'm trying to avoid wheat as much as possible.

You can use buckwheat (and probably spelt) very easily and successfully to make a roux... Re using beer - would it contribute to the gluten content of a meal?

If the recipe calls for potatoes and you're permitted them, you might consider potato flour. It's the first one I thought of and certainly not the only possibility, but it'll beat rice, anyway.  
It fits the regional profile, as well as the ingredient list in many cases.

Beer is actually a diamond for B Nomads. Spelt might have to do even if it's not exactly kosher for nomads.

Very often you see beer in chili recipes and BBQ sauces/ marinades.

My mom used to make a phenomenal spaghetti sauce using beer, tomato paste and hamburger meat. I've since been experimenting making spaghetti sauce substituting water kefir in place of the beer and omitting the hamburger altogether...tomato paste is a avoid for me, but every so often I crave spaghetti sauce...and this hits the spot.


Let go of resistance; feel appreciation for what is, and eagerness for what is coming.

Anyone tried a ginger beer (4.8% alcohol), such as the UK favorite, Crabbie's? Distribution of Crabbie's began in the US in 2012-13, and I see it arrived in the gulf states in 2013.
Looks like something I might like awfully. Wonderful possibilities for cooking...

No but I'll keep my eye out for it.

More on it.
http://beerpulse.com/2014/02/crabbies-spiced-orange-alcoholic-ginger-beer-now-available-in-u-s-2560/
So, as of 28 Feb 2014, it wasn't yet available in Mississippi, gcg, though it definitely is in Louisiana and Alabama. Mississippi is sure to follow, as it has now rolled out in 42 states.
But:
Here it is at BevMo, if they ship across state lines:
http://www.bevmo.com/Shop/ProductDetail.aspx/Beer/Ciders/Crabbies/Crabbies-Ginger-Beer/39680

It's recommended over ice with lemon or lime.
I bet it's awesome in a BBQ sauce, too.

42 states? Shouldn't take more then another 10 or 20 years. I'll keep a look out for it next time i'm at the New Orleans Whole Foods.

Actually, the distributor is adding new states all the time. It took about a year to get to 42 states; my guess is that the other 8 will soon follow.

I've just tasted it.
Just as there is "hard cider", this is "hard Ginger Ale", that's all.
Oh, well. Beer it isn't.

I actually like hard cider, I just doubt that it is kosher on GTD.

Except that, as gcg says so well, it ain't kosher.
Far from organic, this "ginger ale".

I was drawn to the concept of a beer brewed with an excellent ginger, which Crabbie's of Glasgow claims to have been importing for centuries.
And the ginger is fine, alright, but there are far "cleaner" ginger ales. In fact, I just enjoyed one I bought at Whole Foods called Fever-Tree, out of London. It has no artificial colors, while Crabbie's unfortunately does.

Now - Back to gcg's marvellous thread for us Nomads re: Cooking with beer ---- real beer.
Sorry for the diversion.
