Any great recipes for cooking with beer?
I tried the beer salmon recipe without much success.

Tonight I made a butternut squash soup using chicken broth and a wheat beer.
It was much better.

The only thing I've tried is the standard beer batter for fish (if that counts). Works great with smelt and bullhead.

Mmm, beef-and-Guinness stew (or beef-and-Guinness pie, which is portable stew.)

I also like a bottle of decent ale or stout added to the slow cooker when I cook a corned beef brisket. Nice flavor, and more fat seems to render off than water alone.

Baste a leg of lamb with stout. If that doesn't work, fill your stomach with stout first and let the lamb marinate after the fact.

I put some of my homebrew in lots of different recipes; I recently made a beef stew with IPA. One of my favorites is homemade mac and cheese with sausage and IPA in the cheese sauce. Roasted chicken with IPA in the bottom of the pan for basting; obviously, I am a big fan of IPAs Very Happy I also heartily second lamb stew with stout.

Honestly, just about anything that requires water or broth can have a little beer substituted or added.

I made chicken piccata last night, but instead of white wine in the sauce I used 1/2 cup of my homebrewed IPA. I splashed in another 1/4 cup or so later while waiting for the pasta to finish cooking. It turned out really well, the bitterness came through strong and the hop flavor was a nice counterpoint to the tangy lemon juice in the sauce and the salt in the breading. Almost too bitter in a few bites (though that might have been when I bit into some of the zest), maybe just a pale ale next time rather than an IPA.

One of my favorite beer recipes is lentils and bratwurst. They are cooked together with beer and chicken stock and finished off with a little yogurt at the end. Served up with some crusty sourdough and I'm in heaven.

Beer in Chili ! Use your normal recipe, but add 12 oz of beer for every 2 lbs of chili meat. Add at the start. I use stew meat for my chili, no beans, and simmer for 5 hours or so. The beer adds a great subtle flavor. I have tried doing ot with Guiness, Sam Adams, and a few others; the stout-type beers add a nutty flavor, the lagers more subtle.
