Use your favorite brew for Lager Gravy, and then just heat and serve with your holiday turkey. Lagers work well in gravy because they add a slight bite and hint of yeasty flavor without being overwhelming.
Yields: about 3 cups (serving size: 1/4 cup)

Cost per Serving:

2 pounds chicken wings
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Salt and pepper
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
3 cups low-sodium chicken broth or water
1 1/2 cups lager


Prep: 10 Minutes
Cook: 1 Hour, 15 Minutes

1. Cut off wing tips; cut each wing in half at the joint. Warm oil in pot over medium-high heat. Add wings; season with salt and pepper. Cook, turning often, until lightly browned, about 10 minutes.

2. Sprinkle flour over wings; reduce heat slightly. Stir well. Sauté for 2 minutes (pan will be dry). Pour in broth and lager. Increase heat to high; bring to a boil, stirring to pick up any browned bits. Reduce heat to medium and simmer, partially covered, until slightly thickened, about 1 hour.

3. Strain mixture, discarding wings. Return gravy to pot; bring to a boil over high heat. Season with salt and pepper. Serve or let cool, cover and chill. (Can be made up to 3 days in advance. Keep covered and refrigerated. Rewarm over low heat just before serving.)
