How to Cook with Beer - Beer Bread Recipe, Marinated Steak

7 ways to sneak beer into your food

Attention, world: It's National Beer Day. If you can't wait for the five o'clock whistle, you have some options: Beer koozies that masquerade as coffee cups. The good ol' "it's apple juice" cover-up. Start at 4 p.m. and blame the lingering effects of daylight savings. Or just embrace the bottle and mask your beer in one of these seven recipes.

Beer Bread

In a way, beer is liquid bread, so add some flour and baking powder, and it's like you're returning it back to a solid state. Pairs well with butter, another beer and some more butter.

Beer-Marinated Rump Steaks

Still have leftover Guinness from St. Patrick's Day? Throw it in a plastic bag with steak and spices, and let the ingredients do their flavor-injecting magic.

Sailor's Beef Stew

Is this how sailors really eat? I'm afraid of boats, but I'd be willing to give it a try if so.

Guajillo-Braised Beef Short Rib Taco

These guisada-style snacks are apparently known as the "king of tacos" in Mexico, and since Negra Modelo makes up 63 percent of Mexico's beer market, this is one no-brainer combo. Taco lovers in Mexico stand in line for the stuff.

Beer Float

Root beer, be gone. Pour a cold one over your ice cream for a boozy beer float (which is apparently also called a Shakin' Jesse) like an adult.

Kentucky Beer Cheese

The words spreadable cheese are enough to have you swooning, but pour stout beer into the mix, and the world will be an even better place.

PBR Steamed Mussels

Nobody puts PBR in the corner. Do yourself a favor and put it in a skillet with springy alliums, smoked ham and as many mussels as possible.
