A perfect pair

By | Angus Meats, Bold Burger, Bold Eats, Buy local, How to | No Comments

You’ve got your meat on the grill and a frosty beer at your side. But did you consider if it’s the best beer to bring out the flavors of your protein?

Challenge: try some of these wine and beer pairings with the grilled food that you prepare and share your results via our Facebook page at the end of summer.

Burgers
  • Beer: Amber, Pale Ales or even IPAs work well with many hearty or spicy grilled meats, and burgers are no exception.
  • Wine: Zinfandel is appropriate, as the juiciness of the burger calls for a young, fruity red.
Seafood
  • Beer: American Pale Wheat Ales are often (and wrongfully!) overlooked for food paring. Hazy and full of flavor, but not overpowering, these beers are palate friendly and great in the heat, especially when paired with grilled fish.
  • Wine: An oaky California Chardonnay is a proper choice. Its acidity will handle the fat of the fish, and its creamy, buttery texture and flavor work well with grilled, smoky flavors.

Fire and Forget

Here are three simple, slow-cooker recipes that you can start in the morning and forget about until dinnertime!

Beer Legs

Ingredients:

  • Package of chicken legs, seasoned with salt and pepper
  • Diced onion
  • Bottle (or can) of your favorite beer

Directions: Add all ingredients to your slow-cooker and cook on HIGH for 4 hours or LOW for 8 hours.

Teriyaki Thighs

Ingredients:

  • Package of bone-in chicken thighs
  • ¾ cup soy sauce
  • ¾ cup water
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic
  • ¼ tsp. minced ginger

Directions:

  1. Add chicken thighs to slow cooker
  2. Whisk together remaining ingredients
  3. Pour mixture over chicken and slow cook on HIGH for 4 hours or LOW for 8 hours.

Country Style Pork Ribs

Ingredients:

  • Package of bone-in or boneless pork ribs
  • BBQ rub
  • Bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce

Directions:  Season ribs with the BBQ rub and place in crockpot.  Add BBQ sauce and cook for 4 hours on HIGH or 8 hours on LOW.

Now wasn’t that easy?  The great thing about these recipes is you can change the protein (chicken, beef, pork), but keep the seasonings the same.  Tip: the pork ribs are great with an onion or golden mushroom soup mix as seasoning.

Enjoy all the extra time you’ve saved!!
