Today's #recipe features Krušovice UK and the last of our #Czech #beerbread recipes for some time. Find more info on Krušovice Trdelník at 

http://bakingbrew.com/bread/krusovice-trdelnik/

Bidding Farewell to Bohemia

It was a good month of Czech style bottom-fermented lagers. But now we are back in the States and ready to begin baking again. But before returning to a typical beer bread recipe, I decided to romanticize once more about the Czech Republic. If you ever find yourself tired of wondering around old town square in Prague, take a break and try a trdelník.

A trdelník, or trdlo for short, is a bohemian sweet bread roasted over a coals or a wood fire grill. This treat is a delight. Crispy on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside, this dessert makes you never want to leave. Envious of these flavors, I had to bake this for myself.

The last Czech beer that will be featured for some time is Krušovice dark lager. Light in alcohol content, but robust in flavor, Krušovice made its way into my heart as one the best beers of what the Czech Republic had to offer. I don’t have all the tools necessary to make this treat, but my desire for trdlo won’t stop me from baking.

Ingredients

2 cups of all-purpose flour
5 tablespoons of melted butter
½ cup of powdered sugar
5 egg yolks
5 teaspoons of active dry yeast
¼ cup of milk
½ cup of Krušovice Cérny
½ cup of sugar
2 tablespoons of cinnamon
2 tablespoon of nutmeg
Pinch of salt
Rolling pin.

Directions

Step 1
In a large bowl, mix together flour and powdered sugar. In a small frying pan, pour Krušovice and boil down until you have a volume of ¼ cup. Let cool until lukewarm. Add yeast and mix. Let sit for 10 minutes.

Step 2
Pour melted butter (leave some for later), whipped egg yolks, a pinch of salt, and milk and beer mixture into the flour bowl. Use standing mixer with a bread hook to mix the bread or knead by hand like a boss. Place in a clean greased-up bowl and let rise until double in size.

Step 3
Divide dough into three equal parts and let rise again for an additional 20 minutes. Roll out the dough into a thin rope-like shape. Take remaining melted butter and butter the rolling pin. Wrap the dough around rolling pin forming a spiral. Butter the dough with the last of the butter.

Step 4
Turn oven on broil and remove your broiling pan inside your oven. Slide the dough wrapped rolling pin into the broiler. Every 2 minutes, open oven and rotate slightly. Do this for 15 minutes.

Step 5
Remove trdlo from the broiler and from the rolling pin. Place sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg onto a plate, distributing evenly. Roll the trdlo around the cinnamon spices, making sure you hit all the surface area on the treat. Enjoy!

Conclusion

This treat is supposed to be cooked over coal or a wood fire grill. Since I didn’t have a grill, I cooked it under an open fire in the broiler. Unfortunately this didn’t cook evenly. However, this turned out really delicious for my first time baking something in the broiler. I highly recommend you cook using a grill. However, the oven is the next best thing.

The Krušovice Trdelník recipe will conclude our adventures in Prague and the Czech Republic. Many beers and many smiles. I look forward to traveling more often and exploring the local brew. As always, if you make this recipe, let me know what you did do and what you didn’t do.

This week's #recipe is Ballast Point Brewing & Spirits Sculpin Carnitas! 

For more information, check out:

http://bakingbrew.com/bread/sculpin-carnitas/ 

Sculpin Tacos

Getting a little tired of that holiday ham and pumpkin pie? Let’s spike our insulin with something different as we move away from the holiday and look towards the new year. Victory at Sea Peppermint Cupcakes were the first eats from Ballast Point and, considering my love for the brewery and the lack of recipes utilizing them, I decided to continue on this train with my favorite taco recipe. Considering the ugly sculpin fish doesn’t looks satisfying as a fish taco, I went with carnitas.

Ingredients

4 pounds of pork shoulder
2 Cloves
2 ¼ tablespoons of cumin
1 teaspoon of sea salt
1 tablespoon of allspice
2 tablespoons of ground annatto seeds (achiote)
2 tablespoons of California chili powder
Pinch of pepper
1 tablespoon pf coarse corrieander seeds
½ of a jalapeño, chopped
1 teaspoon of sugar
½ cup of orange juice
1 cup of Ballast Point Sculpin
1 shot of your finest tequila
Banana leaves (or aluminum foil)


Directions

Step 1
Add spices, sugar, and salt into a blender or food processor and grind until spices are fine. Add chopped jalapeños, orange juice, Sculpin, and tequila and blend for 30 seconds. Set aside.

Step 2
Take your pork shoulder and chop it into cubes. Place in a giant Ziploc bag. Pour the liquid spice mix into the bag, seal, and mash it around a little bit before placing into the fridge. Keep it there for 4 hours minimum (over night preferred).

Step 3
In a rectangular baking pan, place banana leaves. Then slowly pour out the contents of the Ziploc bag, evenly distributing pork throughout the pan. Place another banana leaf on top, and seal with aluminum foil. Cook for 4 hours, checking on it hourly. The pork should fall right off the bone.

Conclusion

Serve on a tortilla and garnish with cilantro and lime with a side of rice and be sure to prepare yourself for some food coma after this meal. If you are a masa master, make your own tortillas. You won’t regret it.

New #recip  people! You aren't tire of stuffing already?


http://bakingbrew.com/bread/mana-wheat-beer-bread-stuffing/
 
Today's #recipe  features +Maui Brewing Co. Mana Wheat to make Mana Wheat Beer Bread Stuffing. More details at: 

http://bakingbrew.com/bread/mana-wheat-beer-bread-stuffing/

Part 2: The Stuffening

Today, I finished what I started and turn beer bread into stuffing. For this recipe, I used half Mana Wheat Stuffing bread and half dried sourdough bread, but feel free to use all stuffing bread. I wanted a little mix with my stuffing and regret my actions!

Ingredients

4½ cups of cubed Mana Wheat Stuffing Beer Bread
4½ cups of cubed sourdough bread
1 medium chopped white onion
1½ cups of chopped celery
1 cup of unsalted melted butter
2 cups of chicken broth
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of sage


Directions

Step 1
In a medium sauce pan, melt butter. Add the chicken broth, onion and celery and stir until soft.

Step 2
Place bread cubes in a medium bowl. Pour broth over bread cubes. Add salt and sage and mix well.

Step 3
Stuff into turkey (or poultry of choice) lightly. Do not overstuff! Place any excess stuffing and place in a 2 quart casserole dish. Cover dish and bake at 325° fahrenheit for 1 hour.

Conclusion

My biggest mistake this Thanksgiving season is that I didn’t commit to using the Mana Wheat Stuffing Bread for 100% of the bread cubes. Although the sourdough was nice as well, it would have been nice to receive more of the flavors that come from the stuffing bread.

Next holiday season I recommend giving this and the stuffing bread recipe a try. And if you decide to make it, let me know how it turns out.
