October 23, 2012 #1107 Beer And Cooking
As predicted by its organizers, Baltimore Beer Week, now in its 4th year, has become a local institution. The sunny, brisk days of late October are a perfect time to enjoy a mug of suds, and not a bad time to think about ways to eat your beer in addition to drinking it. According to Jerry, beer does show up as an important ingredient in a number of dishes.
Roast Leg of Lamb with Stout & Honey (Tyler Florence)
7 to 8 pound leg of lamb, thighbone removed, and shin bone in (have your butcher do this)
4 cloves garlic, chopped
3 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 cups stout beer or porter (recommended: Guinness)
1/2 cup honey
1 teaspoon juniper berries, crushed
2 bay leaves
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Open the leg of lamb and season the inside with half the garlic, half the thyme leaves, 1 tablespoon olive oil, salt, and pepper. Tie the lamb closed with string. Place it in a roasting pan, season with salt and pepper, and brush it with olive oil. In a bowl, mix the beer, honey, remaining garlic and thyme, juniper berries, and bay leaves. Pour this over the lamb and put the roasting pan into oven. Immediately turn the oven down to 325 degrees F. Baste every 10 minutes. Cook 12 to 13 minutes per pound for medium rare or until internal temperature reaches 130 to 135 degrees F. Remove the roast from the oven, cover it loosely with foil and allow it to rest for about 10 minutes before carving. Serve with pan drippings.
Easy Beer Biscuits
Yield: 24 Biscuits
4 1/2 cups baking mix (such as Bisquick)
1 1/3 cups beer (without the foam) I’ve been using a pumpkin stout for the holidays!
1 1/2 tablespoons seasoning salt
1 tablespoon sugar
Preheat oven to 450ºF.
Mix all ingredients just until blended. The seasoning doesn't have to be mixed in thoroughly. Don't over mix or the biscuits may be heavy. With hands, gently form into 24 balls, and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown.
Simple Beer Batter
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups beer
In a small mixing bowl add flour, egg, garlic powder, and black pepper. Stir in 1 cup beer (you can add more than one cup to obtain your desired texture).
