Foam on the Range: Cooking with Beer

You can do a whole lot more with beer than just drink it.

In fact, Men’s Health Magazine cites a total of 31 uses for beer, none of which have anything to do with tossing one down the hatch, yet 8 of which have to do with cooking—if you count the one about scaling fish (with the bottle cap, not the brew).

Culinary DIY: Salsa

salsa-title
Salsa, which is literally translated as the Spanish word for “sauce,” can take many forms. Salsa roja uses cooked tomatoes, while salsa cruda, pico de gallo, and salsa fresca use all raw ingredients. Salsa verde calls for tomatillos and is a delightful green color. And these are just a few of the many variations.
Prepared salsas sold in jars in the United States are always cooked to lengthen their shelf life so they can be sold in grocery stores and markets.
However, once you’ve tried fresh, homemade salsa, practically no mass-produced, jarred variety can compare. Here we show you how to make a chunky pico de gallo.

Culinary DIY: Gravy

Every fluffy mashed, crunchy roasted, crispy fried, or creamy boiled potato cries out for a bath of concentrated richness of pan juices treated right.

Leftover gravy need never go to waste. So versatile, you’ll run out of gravy before you run out of ways to incorporate it into other recipes—from pot pies, hot sandwiches, and rice dishes to a topping for breakfast hash or Benedict-style egg entrees.

But don’t worry, you can always make more.
