Default Texas Chef Successfully Deep-Fries...Beer!

From Field and Stream Magazine:

September 15, 2010

Texas Chef Successfully Deep-Fries...Beer!

I sincerely hope the committee that hands out Nobel Prizes in the science fields have taken notice of one Texas chef who recently achieved a gastronomical breakthrough: deep-fried beer.

That’s right. According to this report: The beer is placed inside a pocket of salty, pretzel-like dough and then dunked in oil at 375 degrees for about 20 seconds, a short enough time for the confection to remain alcoholic. When diners take a bite the hot beer mixes with the dough in what is claimed to be a delicious taste sensation.

Inventor Mark Zable said it had taken him three years to come up with the cooking method and a patent for the process is pending. He declined to say whether any special ingredients were involved.

Zable will introduce the dish at a fried-food competition in Texas later this month. He’ll serve five of the ravioli-like bites for a very modest $5. If any of our Texas readers plan on attending this food festival, please report back to the Wild Chef (fswildchef@gmail.com) and let us know how they tasted.

This dish sounds like the perfect hunting camp side dish. But the question is, what wild game do you think it’d go best with? I’m thinking it’d taste mighty fine next to a slab of grilled backstrap. Any other suggestions? —Colin Kearns

There is another thread about this. Wow, $5 for a ravioli. I pass.

Five for $5 actually.

At least it's not the beer flavored fried dough I thought it would be. Still not about to rush out and try it though.

I still wonder can you technically sell them without a license to sell beer? I know it is a small amount but you are still selling beer. How would it be any different than putting a larger amount of beer in some edible container and selling it?

A story on NPR about it mentioned he had to check IDs and refuse sale to those under 21.

Still doesn't seem to allow you to sell beer to the public. Is Texas different?

Probably has to do with beer being an ingredient, as opposed to being the sole product. It's like the liquor filled chocolates.

Oh, I see what you're getting at. I'd bet he had to get a vendor's license for the fair.
