Beer can be used in just about every cooking technique. In particular, beer makes good marinades because it tenderizes the meat. Steam, poach or marinate seafood with your favorite beer and combination of spices. Or you may just add a dash or a bottle to finish off a soup, stew, sauce, or to de-glaze a pan.
