So I always thought Ruachbier tasted like bacon. I had one in the fridge and threw together a simple stroganoff to go with it. I must say, if you pair this beer with meat and gravy, you might warp into a parallel dimension. It's pretty awesome!
First step: open your favorite German Rauchbier
Saute 1/2 white onion with 2 tsp chopped garlic
Brown 1 pkg lean ground beef (or bison, elk, caribou if you have exotic meat on hand)
Add 1 can cream of mushroom soup (if you want to do it up right add sauteed mushrooms and heavy cream!)
1 cup rauchbier
Salt, pepper and paprika to taste
Serve over steaming hot egg noodles. I like a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese too.
Pour another beer after all that hard work and eat up!
