Texas Chef Successfully Deep-Fries...Beer!

Texas Chef Successfully Deep-Fries...Beer!

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.

This dish sounds like the perfect hunting camp side dish. But the question is, what wild game do you think it’d go best with? I’m thinking it’d taste mighty fine next to a slab of grilled backstrap. Any other suggestions? —Colin Kearns

Maybe they should wrap it in bacon as well!

In about a week and a half the Texas State Fair opens.  I will be giving this a try.  I will let you know how it goes!

I hear it is a bit of a disappointment from someone in the know. Now, if they wanted to make a good fried beer they would have wrapped the pocket around an oyster and then injected beer and then deep fried it. but my understanding is the beer squirts out everywhere on the first cut with the fork and just makes a mess.

I have to say, calling this fried beer is just marketing BS.  This is no more fried beer than ravioli is boiled cheese.

That being said, I want to try it :)

They did deep fried thick cut bacon the year I worked the Fair. Damn tasty stuff. Might have to run over there this year to try the two winners this year. Along with the beer, which won most inventful, deep fried frito chili pie won the best overall fried dish. Best time I ever had was working the State Fair. I remember on the last night, the catfish nugget vendor came by and asked if anyone wanted the leftover live catfish. Went home with a mid-size cooler filled with catfish.

Hmm.. deep fried beer. Possibly a good accompaniment to Louisiana Turtle Burgers? :)

I'm with you.
And a nice thick rasher of double-smoked bacon on the side would make it a meal.

You've got to get proper bacon though, not the belly bacon we grew up with.  Just fry up a few pieces and have yourself a bacon sandwich.  Unbelievably good.
