Breakfast beer bacon
A simple beer marinade will bring your breakfast rashers to life...
Place the bacon in a bowl and pour over the beer, making sure the bacon is all covered. Marinate for one hour.
Preheat the oven to 180C
Pour out the beer and dredge each piece of bacon in the brown sugar, rubbing on until covered.
Place a wire metal rack onto a baking sheet and bake the bacon for 20-25 minutes, turning once.
Beer marinated BBQ grilled chicken
80ml olive oil
1 teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
½ teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon cumin
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 cloves garlic, chopped
3 tablespoons chopped onion
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
350ml Moon Gazer amber ale
Pour olive oil into a bowl.
Mix together salt, pepper, paprika, cumin, and cayenne pepper and add to olive oil.
Add garlic, onions, and parsley. Mix together well with a fork. Slowly add beer as it will cause the mixture to foam and bubble slightly.
Pour marinade over the chicken in a sealable bag. Remove as much air as possible from the bag and seal. Turn the bag from side to side to make sure all chicken has been coated with the marinade. Place the bag flat on a small, rimmed kitchen sheet pan and into the refrigerator overnight for best results, turning the bag over every few hours to keep the chicken coated.
Remove the chicken from the marinade and BBQ/grill in the normal way.
