What We’re Cooking | Beer Broth Mussels

July 2, 2020 |

We know wine and mussels go hand-in-hand but have you considered beer? This week’s recipe is provided by Rachel Morrison. Using an adapted recipe by The Spruce Eats, Rachel added some heat with jalapeño, serrano and even included leeks.

This dish is rich but not overpowering; it is well-balanced and spicy from the additional peppers added and the addition of Belgian beer cuts the heat nicely. This makes for a great appetizer to share with friends as it’s unique and somewhat elevated, though very affordable because mussels are cheap!

What We’re Cooking | Grilled Wit Wings

June 25, 2020 |

As evidenced by the amount consumed annually in the U.S. – more than 18,000 per person by some estimates – chicken wings have a colossal fan base. In the summer months, the grills come out, and there’s nothing quite like grilled wings. Hot weather also calls for alternatives to the classic “hot wings.” This week’s What We’re Cooking recipe comes from Kevin Kain, who says these wings pair deliciously with a Belgian Wit. Enjoy!

What We’re Cooking | Doppelbock Chicken Étouffée

June 4, 2020 |

This week’s recipe comes from Scott Johnson, our resident home chef. In his household, gumbo was served often, with Scott’s dad using a recipe from Emeril Lagasse that Scott’s brother would later adapt. Turning the standard chicken and andouille sausage gumbo made with white wine recipe into a dark étouffée was Scott’s way of putting his own spin on this Cajun classic. Read More

May 21, 2020 |

For this week’s edition of What We’re Cooking, PorchDrinking’s Emma Wargolet provides this Porter cupcake recipe that comes from Betty Crocker and was adapted by Deschutes Brewery using their Black Butte Porter. Emma loves this recipe because it’s easily adaptable, and if you’re short on time, you don’t need to make the frosting from scratch (don’t worry, we won’t tell). These Easy Porter Cupcakes are rich enough without being overpowering, and the beer provides complementary notes of chocolate and coffee. Deschutes’ Black Butte Porter is available year round, so rest assured you can bake off a batch of these cupcakes every season of the year. Enjoy!

Cooking With Beer | Stuffed Burgers made with Dogfish Head Namaste White

June 15, 2017 |

There is a bar in Philadelphia that makes the most amazing burgers. Good Dog Bar has a burger called ‘Good Dog’. This is a juicy 1/2 lb.of meat, where every salty bite is filled with gooey Roquefort cheese is then topped with fried onions. Am I making you hungry yet? Since I don’t live within a reasonable distance of Good Dog Bar to obtain one of these tasty morsels regularly (which is probably a good thing), I decided to recreate this burger with my own twist: beer. Instinct told me to go with a darker selection, but I defied my better senses and went with a surprisingly delicious choice.

Event Recap | Brewed Food Seattle ft. Trove & Fremont Brewing

May 25, 2017 |

Jensen Cummings, of Brewed Food, comes from a family of chefs, but in watching him captivate an audience this last Monday, I would think that he was a descendent of actors, politicians, perhaps board-room straight-shooters. The way he took the stage immediately enraptured his audience, and stirred up an excitement that electrified Trove, a Korean restaurant in Seattle, Washington.

Spicy Honey Beer Mustard Dipping Sauce with Oskar Blue’s Old Chub

May 18, 2017 |

Grilling season is upon us, ladies and gentlemen!! Many will agree that there are few things better than a solid cookout. If your grill skills are a bit rusty, let me help you get back on track.  I like taking my food up a notch by creating some great marinades and sauces to accompany my grilled creation. So, when I wanted to make a spicy honey mustard for some bratwurst, I knew that we could make this amazing! With what you ask? Well, clearly with beer. When it comes to making beer mustard, darker beers add more depth and flavor, so feel free to experiment with whatever you have on hand. My choice was a lonesome can I had lingering amongst the onslaught of new spring beers and this was a perfect choice!

Cooking with Beer | Braised Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta & Dale’s Pale Ale

May 3, 2017 |

This recipe is featured on These Are My Storys.

I have a hard time understanding why Brussels sprouts seem to be the most-hated vegetable in America. Yes, they are a bit stinky (and if you overcook them, it becomes a MAJOR stink bomb), but they are packed with so many nutrients like vitamin A, vitamin C, beta carotene, vitamin K, iron, folic acid, magnesium and fiber. They are also an extremely versatile vegetable to cook with and the variety of dishes one can create is extensive. I have made several Brussels sprout dishes, but never with beer and I have been missing out!

Cooking With Beer | Beer Glaze for Beignets

March 9, 2017 |

For those who have been lucky enough to go, New Orleans is a food mecca. Iconic creations such as jambalaya, fried catfish and po’ boys are abundant amongst the multitude of restaurants, bars and corner cafes. There is one item that is synonymous to this region, that embodies both the French influence of the New Orleans culture and sheer indulgence: the beignet. Sweet, crunchy, yet fluffy, the beignet in some regards is one of the simpler varieties of fried pastries. Usually caked with enough powdered sugar to create a white dust cloud with every bite, they are messy yet simply delightful.

Cooking with Beer | Kaiser Butternut Squash Soup

October 20, 2016 |

It’s the middle of October, the shelves are filled with gourdy beers and the temperatures are falling outside. If there’s one thing I love about fall evenings, it’s sitting inside and stuffing my face full of delicious treats. On this particular day, I decided butternut squash soup would be the perfect meal to accompany my Netflix binge-sesh. This ain’t your run of the mill butternut squash soup either – I filled it with apples, fennel, onions and garlic. To give it an extra kick, I tossed in a good amount of Kaiser – an Imperial Oktoberfest Lager by Avery Brewing that is chock full of festive spices. The final product is finished with a balsamic reduction drizzle and a few sourdough croutons. Make this meal, cuddle up on the couch, and never leave your house again.
