Add to the batter for deep-fried foods

Battered fish, fried chicken, onion rings, and other sinful but comforting treats will get an upgrade when beer is added to the batter. Adding beer into the mix will make it more airy, light, and crisp. With other spices combined, it will also contribute an earthy flavor that works well with deep-fried comfort food.

Use for marinades

Using beer is a good choice when making marinades for barbecues and roasts. Culinary experts like Adam Richard Seger use beer to tenderize the meat, preparing it to absorb all the other flavors it will be soaked in. Everybody enjoys savory and juicy meat that’s fresh from the grill.

Add to soups and stews

A warm bowl of soup can be comforting after a long day. Adding a cup of beer to a large pot of soup or stew will bring out all the flavors in meats, vegetables, spices, and even in cheeses. Craft beers or ale are good for stronger flavors while wheat beer can be used for a milder taste.

When cooking with beer, it’s important to add it in moderation. The strong flavors of some kinds of beer might overpower the food. While it does add an earthy flavor, too much of it might not be suitable for all palates. To make sure everyone enjoys beer in their food, the key is to treat is as an extra ingredient that must be used sparingly.
