This delicious recipe is deceptively simple: you can make it in your crock pot with ingredients you already have on hand. Boise Brewing’s Black Cliffs American Stout and our Abilene Depot Steak & Burger Rub combine for an earthy, warm and complex flavor.
Slow Cooker Beer Braised Lamb Shanks with Boise Brewing's Black Cliffs American Stout
Why it works: Smoked sea salt, fennel and coriander from Abilene pair with notes of rich chocolate and coffee tones in Black Cliffs to impart a roasty slightly sweet flavor to our lamb shanks. Don’t forget to save a little beer to drink with your meal!
I love when I get to entertain my inner geek in the name of more flavorful food. This week, I experimented with sous vide cooking. Even better, I got to build and wire a controller to save about $450 of the cost of buying a fancy sous vide machine.
