Guinness and Cabbage Delight

Beer is not just for drinking anymore these days. You can use it for things that you can never think of. It can be used to trap slugs and snails, mice exterminator and a (pricy) plant fertilizer. Beers can also be used for cooking. You may have come across steaks and ribs cooked using beer but that is not all beer is capable of. It can also be used together while making side dishes like salads. Here, you will learn how to cook Guinness and Cabbage Delight, a mesmerizing salad created with the help of an Irish stout beer.
1 tablespoon of olive oil
2 medium shallots, diced
2 teaspoons of minced or grated ginger root
3 cups of shredded red cabbage
3 cups of shredded napa cabbage
1 cup of Guinness
A� teaspoon of salt
A� teaspoon of ground black pepper
1. First and foremost, heat the olive oil in a frying pan on medium to high heat. You can also substitute the olive oil to other vegetable oils like pumpkin seed oil or peanut oil. Different oil being used will give different taste on your side dish. Experiment with the oils and choose the one that suits your taste buds.
2. Put in shallots and ginger in the frying pan. If you are afraid that the ginger taste will be overwhelming the overall taste of the dish (or you just don’t like ginger!) you can reduce it to just a teaspoon. Cook them until tender.
3. Introduce red cabbage and napa cabbage into the mix and cook them for about two minutes. Cook longer and you can risk your cabbage to shrivel and this will affect the nutrients inside. It is not compulsory to use these cabbages together; you can try cooking this with red or napa cabbage alone. Cabbage is low in fat and it also has anti-aging effects because of the presence of vitamin C.
4. Pour in the Guinness inside the pan together with the salt and pepper. Guinness will give a rich and heavy taste to your dish. If you have a great sense of taste, you can also trace hints of coffee inside the beer. Reduce the heat to medium heat and then cover the pan. Let it heat for around 5 minutes and serve it inside a bowl.
A mix of red and napa cabbage will surely brighten up the presentation of your dish. High in vitamin C and surprisingly delicious with a mixture of rich flavor, it will be hard for you to not drool your mouth with this. This dish will be excellent for a small family and friends gathering.Kuliner kota Malang
