Marinate chicken thighs in beer for tender, flavorful meat — and to clear out leftover beer from your fridge.
By Jerri Green
It never fails that when we have a dinner party we end up with several stray beers in our fridge. We buy some, the guest bring some. No one six pack ever gets finished. So, we inevitably have a smorgasbord of barley and hops taking up valuable real estate in the icebox. As such, I am always on the look out for a new recipe that helps me get rid of a bottle and free up some space for something more important.
Lucky for me my carnivore hubby is always up for grilling some sort of meat marinated in beer. I came across just such a thing in his favorite cookbook, Weber’s Real Grilling. I adjusted it just a bit (as usual).
You can probably get your carnivore to down another beer while he grills, and maybe one more at the table. And hey – just like that – three less beers in the fridge. What do you know? There may just be room for dessert after all!
