Default Do You Cook With Your Homebrew???

Im a huge fan of beer dinners and I know tons of people use beer to cook with.... But how about your homebrew? Anyone have a dish you make using a specific homebrew of yours? I have a chocolate oatmeal stout Im going to use in my recipe for chocolate chip banana nut bread. Im also setting up a potluck dinner for my HBC where everyone cooks a dish with their homebrew and brings it in. We'll have everyone pick their favorite dish and the winner will get some sort of prize. So whos cookin what with their beer?

Sure. I love to cook and sometimes I think that is what got me into brewing,.

I do Braised short ribs using stout.

I also do a great braised duck legs and thighs using one of my BDSA's. Brown the legs and thighs, sweat some leeks, add dried cherries and some BDSA and braise. Excellent.

My oatmeal stout is an important part of my Fire-In-The-Hole Chili. I also use beer in short ribs, roasts, etc.

We use beer to make homemade BBQ sauce for wings and pulled pork, usually our Dark Ale. We also used beer to brine a chicken. For this we used our sweet potato beer.

That sounds really good. I was actually eating some duck with black eye pea chili when I posted this. No beer in it though.

I've used an oatmeal stout to make gravy for beef (twice). That beer's gone now though.

I make my beef stew with my brown ales. It's actually the only liquid I add to the stew.
Chili usually gets one of my pale ales added.

k47k, how much (and what grade) maple syrup, for what size batch of chili, do you use? Is it subtle or really noticeable?

I've used brown ale to make this corned beef several times. My brown ale wasn't so good, so it has sat in bottles for years I used 4 pints of the beer in a thick garbage bag, toss the full brisket and all the spices/cure in there, and let it sit in the keezer for a week.
