A friend asked me for a recipe for 'ham in beer' for her Easter dinner. So I, in turn, turned to friend Lucy Saunders at beercook.com.
Here's Lucy's recipe for Roast Pork Tenderloin in Brown Ale, from her book, The Best of American Beer & Food.
From the book: The Best of American Beer & Food, by Lucy Saunders [http://beercook.com]. Brewers Publications: 2007. Reprinted with permission.
To dress the pork, here's Lucy's recipe Raspberry/Chipotle Sauce.
For side dishes —and for my non-meat-eating friends— here are my recipes for Beer Risotto and Roasted Asparagus with Mock Hollandaise Sauce.
For dessert, try these 'Little Ears': my sister's take on my Nana's recipe for fried cookies, lightly dusted with confectioner's sugar.
To all my readers: wishes of the season for hope and renewal.
