The brandy burning was super fun and burnt for a lot longer than I thought it would so be careful when making this dish.

Mircobrew Wings

Exciting times for all our beer-cooks. This is the  second beer recipe I’ve done so far (here is the first).

We used very different flavours in this one so no surprise we got different results…

Ingredients:

veg oil
wings
garlic powder
onion powder
onion
red onion
dried thyme
paprika
black pepper
caraway seeds
dark beer
sugar
apple juice
unsalted butte

So it seems dark beer affects presentation in my eyes, but as they say never judge a wing by it’s feathers. Having said that these wings tasted a lot more balanced than the previous beer recipe

Manhattan BBQ Wings

This is the first recipe I’ve made that has packed a good chilli punch. This means it was AWESOME.
My excitement started when I saw the sauce getting sticky and wings going crispy, as it turns out at the time of writing these wings are the top rated, to find out how they taste check out the video below.

Remember if you not a huge fan of hot food, you can always reduce the amount of chilli or cayenne pepper…

cayenne pepper
chilli sauce
Franks Hot Sauce
garlic powder
honey

onion powder
orange juice
soy sauce
unsalted butter
