This beer sat on my counter top for weeks, staring at me. It wasn’t a kind that I liked. Husband Big Hearted and I discussed pouring it down the sink, but my time in Germany hated the waste aspect of that. Then beer braised beef tips were born out of a package of meat and a love of mushrooms. This recipe tastes a little bit German. Germans love to cook with beer!
I miss being in Germany the most in fall.
Every season brings new foods to celebrate. In the fall it was new wine, grape juice, and wild game served with sweet lingonberries. Some of my favorite mushrooms came into season and made their way into the most delicious gravies. The stifling heat of summer (with no air conditioning) evaporated into golden leaves and fresh autumn walks. Hiking became incredibly popular and there was a yearly tradition of food, wine, and beer booths setting up all along a hiking trail so people would eat, drink, and enjoy the scenery. Fall fashion was also stunning. So many scarves! The one pictured below came from Germany. Hopefully me pulling it out continues the cooler weather trend we’re seeing in Georgia.
This one’s hearty, warming, and the meat is fork tender delicious. Even my die hard mashed potato loving husband overlooked the lack of potatoes and had to have some! What’s your favorite fall comfort food?
