After reading Mark Bittman's early September column "Beer as an Ingredient," I was inspired to host a fall porch party with seasonal beers and tasty food incorporating beer. My tentative menu includes the lightened Ale and Cheddar Soup from Bittman's column, some kind of beer-marinated grilled meat, and a Chocolate Stout Pudding for dessert.
What are your favorite recipes that feature beer as an ingredient? Starters, main dishes, desserts, whatever, I'm hungry! I'm especially interested in marinade recipes or ways to use beer for grilled meats or kebabs.
