The right beer for chulent

abu applesauce | Dec 23, 2009 07:20 AM

Has anyone ever used beer instead of or in combination with water in a chulent? If so, what type of beer? I'm thinking of either a brown ale or a winter spice style, like Harpoon Winter Warmer, Weyerbacher Winter Ale... If this helps, I'm using flanken and sweet potato (which is why I think winter spice beer would work). I've braised short ribs before with brown ale and loved it, so I think it would work too, although short ribs and flanken are not the same...
For that matter, I have a sierra nevada honey mustard that I might throw in--
Any thoughts?
