10 Recipes for Cooking with Beer!

10 Recipes for Cooking with Beer!

Lately I’ve been on a kick where I want to make and publish recipes that have beer as an ingredient. Cooking with beer is something that seemed natural for me to incorporate into Chews and Brews. If you don’t know already, I really like beer; and I especially like craft beer. Craft beer has a lot more flavour, I find, and it is usually made with pure love and hard work. Brewers put everything they have into selecting the perfect…

Beer Can Chicken

Beer Can Chicken

Have you ever had beer can chicken? If you haven’t, then you must. It’s seriously such an easy way to perfectly cook a whole chicken on the barbecue. Juicy inside and crispy outside, meanwhile full of flavours! Making your beer can chicken does require a few easy steps that will all be worth it in the end. First, obviously, is picking that beer. We’ve done beer can chicken with a cheap lager mostly, but this time I am using Big…

Grilled Acorn Squash with Tomato Curry Chutney

Grilled Acorn Squash with Tomato Curry Chutney

We grill and cook outdoors a lot in the summer. When I made this recipe, it was stinking hot out and there was no way any of this was happening inside my hot house. The squash was done on the grill and chutney done on the Coleman stove; this whole grilled acorn squash with tomato curry chutney was done completely outdoors! You don’t have to do it that way, but there is something tasty about cooking outside. Bring this recipe camping…

Chipotle Salmon with Avocado, Apple, Yam Salsa

Chipotle Salmon with Avocado, Apple, Yam Salsa

One of my favourite things about the liquor stores in British Columbia, besides the awesome craft beer selection, is that you can pick up a seasonal magazine called Taste. It’s full of wine, spirits and beer reviews; and tonnes of recipes as well! That’s where I found the inspiration for this chipotle salmon with avocado, apple, yam salsa recipe. I didn’t change their recipe too much; I used avocado oil instead of olive oil; parsley instead of cilantro; an Ambrosia…

Slow Cooker Curry Chicken – A Winter Warmer

Slow Cooker Curry Chicken – A Winter Warmer

It’s still winter and it’s still kind of cold out. This winter hasn’t been too terribly bad, but still a few cold spells that require good bowls of warm foods, just like this slow cooker curry chicken. I enjoy curry and coconut flavours together and like adding in any variety of vegetables to increase that veggie intake. This recipe was made to warm us up and it did just that! With just enough heat from the curry to take the…

Slow-Cooked Bolognese Sauce

Slow-Cooked Bolognese Sauce

I made this recipe a few times and soon realized that it needed to be put on the blog. For one, I really want to share the goodness with all of you! And second, the piece of recipe paper that I am using to create this is getting pretty gross; full of food droppings, crumpled edges and smudged words. It’s time to type out the slow-cooked bolognese sauce! If you are looking for a quick and easy sauce to make, this…

Shrimp and Corn Foil Packets

Shrimp and Corn Foil Packets

When it was still corn season I was working hard to use up the huge bag of corn we bought from a “street” vendor and I ended up trying to recreate a southern crawfish boil type of dish. Living in Alberta, we don’t exactly have access to a lot of crawfish, if any, so I used shrimp. You can make these shrimp and corn foil packets anywhere; in the oven, on the barbecue or over the campfire. For this specific recipe…
