Forgive me if you are a Dad who does not drink beer. I’m just offering a little something fun for the Dads who DO enjoy their beer … like my husband, and my brother, and my nephew … and the neighbor across the street. Here are 10 recipes for dads who love beer – otherwise known 10 recipes that incorporate beer as a major ingredient. So now you can have your beer and eat it too: Steak, chicken, ribs and more (even popsicles)!
1. Achiote and Beer-Marinated Grilled Steak
These Latin inspired grilled New York strip steaks are marinated in a spicy mix of beer, achiote (annatto), cayenne or chipotle, garlic, lime juice and cumin. For a spicy finishing touch, they are served topped with a jalapeno cilantro salsa. Get the recipe here.
