Texas Chef Successfully Deep-Fries...Beer!

By Colin Kearns

I sincerely hope the committee that hands out Nobel Prizes in the science fields have taken notice of one Texas chef who recently achieved a gastronomical breakthrough: deep-fried beer.

That’s right. According to this report: The beer is placed inside a pocket of salty, pretzel-like dough and then dunked in oil at 375 degrees for about 20 seconds, a short enough time for the confection to remain alcoholic. When diners take a bite the hot beer mixes with the dough in what is claimed to be a delicious taste sensation.


Inventor Mark Zable said it had taken him three years to come up with the cooking method and a patent for the process is pending. He declined to say whether any special ingredients were involved.

Zable will introduce the dish at a fried-food competition in Texas later this month. He’ll serve five of the ravioli-like bites for a very modest $5. If any of our Texas readers plan on attending this food festival, please report back to the Wild Chef (fswildchef@gmail.com) and let us know how they tasted.

This dish sounds like the perfect hunting camp side dish. But the question is, what wild game do you think it’d go best with? I’m thinking it’d taste mighty fine next to a slab of grilled backstrap. Any other suggestions? —Colin Kearns

Since his brew of choice is Guinness, I am thinking something full flavored. Maybe a venison stew, but definately something involving red meat.

Maybe just mix them half and half with meat filled ravioli, for a full meal.

I'd love to try some. It sounds heavenly, yet, I only like ice-cold beer.

Texas ... of course it just had to come from Texas. But Irish beer instead of Lone Star? Figure he better get that right before the competition.

It will debut at the State Fair of Texas in Dallas, which runs from Sept 24th through Oct 17th. The State Fair of Texas is the largest and best state fair in the United States. It is highly recommended, especially if you've never been. For more info visit wwww.bigtex.com, the official website of the State Fair of Texas.

Interesting, but calling $5 modest for about an ounce of beer and probably not a lot of pretzel is not really accurate. However, I would still try it for $5, at least once. Seems like the outer skin needs to be partially cooked first to be able to keep the beer in when dropped in the fryer, so it doesn't bubble up & pop while cooking. Pretty clever though, good work.
