13 Ways to Cook With Beer
11. For drunken pulled pork, simmer the pork in beer. Cut boneless pork butt or shoulder into cubes and put in a Dutch oven with beer, onions, chili powder, cumin, salt, and freshly ground black pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce to low heat, cover, and simmer until the pork is fork-tender. Shred the pork with 2 forks and stir in the bottled barbecue sauce, simmering until heated through.
13. To give battered and fried fish a shot of flavor, add beer. For instance, mix together 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, and 1 bottle stout or dark beer.
