What's going on here: It wouldn’t be right to be in the infused salt business and not make at least one with the most popular craft beer in Texas: India Pale Ale. We didn't have to look far (just down the road actually) for a brewery that was making a couple of outstanding IPA's. We wanted to keep it simple and let the malty sweetness of the beer to come through, so the only thing we added to out IPA Infused Salt is cascabel chili. Why Cascabel? It's the business owner's favorite, and it's smokey, gentle heat works just right.
Ingredients: Kosher flake sea salt, Texas IPA beer, cascabel chili. .
How to use it: Any cut of beef, pork or poultry including whole roasted chicken or turkey, or boneless/skinless cuts. Great on shellfish and flounder. Also delicious on roasted potatoes, sweet potatoes, summer vegetable like squash, peppers, and tomatoes, or as a finishing salt for barbecue.
Method: As with all of our salts, this can be used as a dry brine, seasoning salt, or finishing salt.
To Dry Brine: Apply generously (1/2 to both sides of cuts of meat, pork, or poultry ideally 6-24 hours prior to cooking. Transfer meat to a rack on a paper towel-lined baking sheet and refrigerate uncovered until it's time to cook. Remove meat from the fridge 45-60 minutes and let it rest at room temperature prior to cooking. This process will result in a dramatically improved flavor, texture, and residual moisture (juiciness) of your meat dishes. Check for seasoning after cooking and apply more if needed, to suit your taste.
To Season Seafood and Vegetables: Simply apply ½ to 1 teaspoon per serving prior to cooking. Add more to taste if needed prior to serving.
INGREDIENTS: Kosher flake sea salt, Texas IPA beer, cascabel chili powder.
