Chipotle and Beer Short Ribs

Tender, sticky, smoky, spicy, sweet & sour, comforting, finger licking, serviette destroying and so delicious. All those words aptly describe and sum up these totally moreish Chipotle and Beer Short Ribs. The short ribs tick all the boxes when it comes to comfort food. And with the great big South African barbecue weekend for Heritage Day just around the corner, they certainly all the  barbecue food boxes. Make sure you get the best quality short ribs (I got mine from the…

Berry and Beer Lemonade

All the beer purists should look away as this Berry and Beer Lemonade will probably annoy them. I’ve been wanting to do a beer cocktail for a while now and found the recipe for this lemonade on The Beernoness‘ blog and thought it could have quite a wide appeal. One way to think if it is a beer shandy with berries. Use a Blond Pale Ale for the lemonade as a punchier beer will be too overpowering in flavour. You…

The fish is flavoured with the curry spices and then dipped into a beer batter for a deep frying. That is a whole lot of comforting dude food on a plate. I used a fragrant Goan Fish Curry spice available on the My Collections website…

Another recipe with beer as an ingredient and it is one of my favourite recipes on the blog to date. I love cooking with beer (drinking it too) and looking back there are quite a few recipes on the blog: 2 divine ice creams, namely Beer and Nuts Ice Cream and Pumpkin Ale and Smashed Toffee Ice Cream. I used it in my Slow Roasted Pork recipe with great success and of course last week, baked this delicious Chocolate Stout Cake…

If I politely ignore the first few attempts at writing and photographing recipes, May is anniversary month for Heinstirred. One year of blogging to be exact. I am thoroughly enjoying the journey, interaction with readers and fellow bloggers and so excited about some opportunities that are coming my way. But back to cake! What is any anniversary without cake? Since moving to the city I have been a frequent visitor to Roeland Liqours, working my way through their excellent selection…
