Steak & Ale Pie, y’all! It is time. After a recent trip to a local Austin brewery Adelbert’s, I couldn’t wait to get back home and cook with some of their beer. Yes, that’s right, I said cook. Well, and drink some of it too, but some beers just scream cook with me! All the craft beers that are popping up everywhere really lend themselves perfectly to be used in the kitchen. The funky flavors, hops and carbonation add a lot of depth to recipes like this one. The subtle flavor the beer gives when you stew it with the meat really gives it that extra edge you can’t get any other way.
