How about a couple of recipes featuring beer? I am featuring two recipes this week from the Abita Brew Pub. Of course, the beers featured are from their taps.

3 racks Baby Back Ribs

1/4 cup whole Black Peppercorns

3 ounces Liquid Crab Boil

Salt and Pepper to taste

Abita Purple Haze beer, to cover

Brewmaster’s Rib Sauce, for basting (recipe to follow)

Preheat oven to 350℉.

Combine ribs, peppercorns and crab boil in a baking pan. Cover ribs with Purple Haze beer. Cover with foil and bake for 2 to 3 hours or until tender. Place ribs on a hot grill and baste with Brewmaster’s Sauce until heated through and marked by the grill, about 15 minutes.

Brewmaster’s Rib Sauce

1 cup mixture of Bell Pepper, Onion and Celery, diced

1/2 tablespoon Olive Oil

1 (16 ounce) jar of your favorite Barbecue sauce

1 bottle Abita Golden beer

Sauté bell pepper, onions and celery in olive until tender. Add barbecue sauce and beer. Let simmer uncovered about 30 to 40 minutes to reduce in thickness for basting.


Good Cooking, Good Eating and Good Living!!!


I lived in New Orleans, since birth, until Hurricane Katrina. I now live in Arkansas with my wife and our spoiled-rotten dog. I have been cooking since I was 8. My first cookbook, You can't keep New Orleans out of the cook, is now available at publishamerica.net and most online bookstores. It is also available on Kindle and Nook.
