    Deep Fried Beer! :D

    I read the article and had to clean the keyboard, monitor and the mouse. Looks sooooooo good to eat!

    Texas Chef Successfully Deep-Fries...Beer! | Field & Stream

    I sincerely hope the committee that hands out Nobel Prizes in the science fields have taken notice of one Texas chef who recently achieved a gastronomical breakthrough: deep-fried beer.

    That’s right. According to this report: The beer is placed inside a pocket of salty, pretzel-like dough and then dunked in oil at 375 degrees for about 20 seconds, a short enough time for the confection to remain alcoholic. When diners take a bite the hot beer mixes with the dough in what is claimed to be a delicious taste sensation.

    Inventor Mark Zable said it had taken him three years to come up with the cooking method and a patent for the process is pending. He declined to say whether any special ingredients were involved.

    Zable will introduce the dish at a fried-food competition in Texas later this month. He’ll serve five of the ravioli-like bites for a very modest $5. If any of our Texas readers plan on attending this food festival, please report back to the Wild Chef (fswildchef@gmail.com) and let us know how they tasted.

    I've tried this so many times and I keep getting my face blistered when I spew the beer into the deep fryer. :(

    You would be surprised how much alcohol remains in food after being cooked. It's commonly thought that alcohol just boils off first but I have been doing some research for a project and discovered how it really works and it's not a quick process to remove alcohol from a substance.

    I think I might try to make this. Simply make ravioli but instead of filling it with cheese or meat, fill it with a thick beer cheese soup heavy on the beer.

    This is an inspiring post, thanks for sharing!

    Interesting, I did not know that. I remain skeptical, though. :)

    Obviously you'd eat these for the taste. Eating enough to get a buzz would be a total b!tch.
