These Easy-to-Make Dishes Are Great With Beer!

Need a snack to go with that beer? Try any of these quick recipes for a twist on some old classics.

Beer, with its spectrum of flavors (sweet, bitter, or even bready flavors, thanks to the yeast) can be paired with a lot of dishes. Let your beer and pulutan pairings rise to its potential with these recipes you can make at home:

It's a classic for a reason. Imagine the sisig-sizzling hot, its fragrant aroma entering your nostrils, and then with every crunchy, chewy bite, you unleash a burst of flavors: salty, savory, smoky, sour, and spicy. Then, you wash it down with an ice-cold pint of beer that cleanses your palate, ready to start again.

2 Make Your Pork Barbecue Tastier 

You can expect pork barbecue to be on every party spread. You can always depend on it to be good. But being dependably good can get boring. Dress up store-bought barbecue with a range of easy dips. Make an easy Sriracha-Honey Dip (one part sriracha, one part honey, and one part simple syrup), Sesame Soy Dip (1 cup mayo, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, one tablespoon sesame oil, some sesame seeds, and a teaspoon of brown sugar), or try any of these other vibrant-tasting dips:

Did you know that adding salt can bring out the sweetness of foods on your palate? If you've ever dipped a bitter grapfruit into a little salt and noticed it getting sweeter, you're not imagining things. Salt is basically a magical ingredient! That same rule applies when you pair the saltiness of dilis with the bitterness of the beer. Plus, seafood goes really well with beer!

8 Do More with Chicharon

Yes, chicharon is wonderful as is, but it can be made even better! Add dimension to your chicharon by seasoning it with more than just salt (or MSG). Make your own chicharon or buy a pack of ready-cooked pork skins and simply toss it all in a mixture of smoked paprika, garlic powder, white pepper, dried marjoram and a pinch of sugar. It creates a flavor-bomb of spicy, sweet, and savory that you'll love.
