Beer Recipes

Redhook IPA Braised Sausages & Polenta
  • 4 cups cold water
  • 1 cup polenta (coarse-ground corn meal)
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 to 2 lbs. Italian or other coarse uncooked sausages
  • 4 tbsp. minced celery
  • 2 tbsp. minced oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp. pine nuts, toasted and chopped
  • 1 tbsp. oil from dried tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp. chopped parsley
  • 1 12oz. bottle of Redhook IPA
Combine the water, polenta, and salt in a large, heavy saucepan. Stir to break up any lumps. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer, stirring frequently, until the grains taste done and the polenta is thick but pourable, about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat and cover the pot until ready to serve; if keeping longer than the time it takes to cook the sausages, keep warm in a double boiler. Puncture each sausage in a couple of places with a toothpick. Arrange the sausages in a single layer in a heavy skillet. Add beer to a depth of about 1/4 inch. Bring the beer to a boil over high heat, reduce the heat to medium, cover, and steam for 15 minutes. Remove the cover, turn the heat to medium-high, and cook until the water is gone and the sausages begin to sizzle and brown. (To reduce spattering, put the cover back on slightly ajar.) Stir the remaining ingredients into the polenta, taste for seasoning, and correct if necessary. Spoon a large pool of polenta onto each plate and arrange a couple of sausages on top.

  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. Tabasco sauce
  • 1 1/2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
