14 Things You Never Knew You Could Do With Beer
Bro! Is the frat house covered in half-empties after a night of drunken revelry? Don't get rid of that extra beer just yet – here are 14 weird ways to reuse it. Check out these cool things you never knew you could do with beer: 1. Marinate a steak pre-grilling, and possibly reduce your risk of cancer. Turns out marinating your meat in beer can help prevent the formation of carcinogenic compounds due to high-heat grilling. You can learn more here! 2. Trap and kill slugs, and save your garden from slimy, destructive pests. If you find your garden under attack from slugs, set out a little dish of beer. They'll be attracted to the sugars in it, climb on it, and drown. Sorry lil' buddies! 3. Condition your hair for a healthy, textured shine. So the above picture is apparently one that exists on the internet. Hmm. Well, it seems you can also now use beer as a shine-enhancing, texturizing hair rinse! Read more here. 4. Cook rice in beer instead of water, giving it an interesting nutty flavor. Sounds like it could be good! Inexpensive American lagers work particularly well; avoid anything overly hoppy. Samuel Adams has a recipe on their website. 5. Make a beer can roof! Turn beer cans into aluminum shingles. That's one way to shingle your shed. Probably pretty cost-effective, too! Learn how here. 6. Cook a deliciously moist roast chicken. Beer can chicken is a classic! Shove a can up its chicken butt and taste the magic. Recipe here. 7. Make a beer can into a really cool dish or ashtray. A great DIY gift for your favorite beer-lover. Instructions here. 8. Make an impromptu can stove. Add fuel, and you can cook dinner! Just... don't blow anything up, okay? Learn more here. 9. Craft a DIY dixie cup dispenser. I feel like this would be really cool in a dive bar bathroom. Instructions here. 10. Soften skin and prevent blemishes. Try a homemade beer face mask or foot soak! 11. Mix up some finger-lickin' good homemade barbecue sauce. Recipe here. 12. Polish wooden furniture (with flat beer, in particular). Spill some beer on your coffee table? It's actually good for it! Rub it in with a soft cloth. 13. Remove tarnish from brass and copper. This isn't really a problem for me, because I'm too poor to have anything made of brass or copper. But you can apparently use beer to polish your pots and pans! Beer's slight acidity dissolves tarnish, leaving the metal surface shiny and squeaky clean. 14. Draw insects away from party guests. Simply place a few bowls of beer far from the party. Bugs are attracted to the sugars in beer. Do you know any other weird things you can do with beer (besides get drunk)? :D
Baked Chicken Parmesan Meatballs in Tomato Cream Sauce
Meatballs in tomato sauce are the best comfort when you're fighting an unrelenting cold. This can be eaten alone with bread or they would be great over pasta, quinoa, on a sandwich or maybe even cut up and added to a pizza. Enjoy! Yield: 6-8 servings For the sauce: 1 (28 oz.) can whole tomatoes, liquid reserved 1 tbsp. butter ¼ cup finely chopped onion 1½ tbsp. tomato paste 2 cloves garlic, minced ½ tsp. red pepper flakes Salt and pepper, to taste 1/3 cup heavy cream or half-and-half For the meatballs: ½ cup dried panko 1/3 cup grated onion 1 tsp. dried parsley 1 tsp. dried basil ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese 3/4 tsp. kosher salt ¼ tsp. ground black pepper 3 cloves garlic, minced 1 large egg, lightly beaten 1½ lbs. ground chicken 2 tbsp. olive oil To finish: 4 oz. shredded mozzarella 2 tbsp. freshly grated Parmesan 2-3 tbsp. minced fresh basil (optional) INSTRUCTIONS: To make the sauce, add the tomatoes to a blender or food processor. Puree until smooth, adding a bit of the reserved liquid if necessary to smooth the mixture out. Melt the butter in a large, deep skillet or sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook about 1 minute, until it begins to soften. Stir in the tomato paste, garlic and red pepper flakes and mix just until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in the tomato mixture, lower the heat to a simmer, and cook about 5-8 minutes, until the sauce is slightly thickened. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the cream. Set aside. To make the meatballs, combine the panko, grated onion, parsley, basil, Parmesan, salt, pepper, garlic and egg. Stir together with a fork just until blended. Mix in the ground chicken and knead together gently until evenly combined. Form the mixture into meatballs about 1½-inch in diameter. Preheat the oven to 400˚ F. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs to the pan in a single layer. Let cook, turning occasionally, until all sides are browned. Once all of the meatballs are browned, place them in the pan with the tomato sauce. Sprinkle the mozzarella and additional Parmesan over the top. Bake until the cheese is fully melted and bubbling and the meatballs are cooked through, about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and garnish with the fresh basil. Serve warm.
Baked Chicken Nuggets Stuffed with Mozzarella
Ingredients For the chicken nuggets: 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 2-inch pieces ½ teaspoon salt ⅛ teaspoon black pepper 1.5 oz. mozzarella cheese, cut into strips (about 1.5" x ⅓" x ⅓") 1 cup Panko bread crumbs ⅓ cup finely grated Parmesan cheese ½ teaspoon garlic powder ¼ teaspoon Italian seasoning 1 tablespoon olive oil ⅓ cup all-purpose flour 2 large eggs, lightly beaten For the honey mustard yogurt dip: ⅓ cup Greek yogurt 2 tablespoons honey 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice pinch of salt and pepper, to taste Instructions Preheat oven to 400 F degrees. Spread Panko bread crumbs in a thin layer on rimmed baking sheet and bake for 3-4 minutes, until lightly toasted. Once mostly cooled, transfer breadcrumbs to a shallow dish. Stir in Parmesan, garlic powder, Italian seasoning and olive oil. Mix well. Set aside. Set a wire rack on the baking sheet; lightly coat rack with cooking spray. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Use a sharp knife to cut a pocket into each piece of chicken lengthwise, and make the pocket as big as possible without cutting through the backside. Stuff the mozzarella into the pockets. Make sure the strips go all the way into the chicken but doesn't come out the other side. Place flour and eggs in separate shallow dishes. Working in batches, dredge chicken in flour (shaking off excess), dip into eggs, then dredge in Panko mixture, pressing to coat. Transfer to the rack. Bake until the chicken is cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the yogurt, honey, Dijon mustard and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve the chicken with the honey mustard yogurt dip.
