Old Rasputin Braised Bison Shanks

Here’s a great recipe for Old Rasputin Braised Bison Shanks from Scott at Food. Beer. Tunes.

I’m a big, big fan of North Coast Brewery’s Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout. A year or two ago I came across a recipe for Old Rasputin braised short ribs. With that as my inspiration, I decided to use a bottle of Old Raspy as part of the braising liquid for the shanks.

Review of Grand Cru

North Coast Brewing Grand CruFrom Suburban Cowgirl:

So, I tried a glass. And this beer? This beer is different. They weren’t kidding when they said it had a champagne-like taste, except this is less dry and easier to drink in my opinion than champagne….

Couple the sweet, easy taste and light hops with the bubbly drinkability of this brew and I must hereby declare: this is the best beer I’ve ever tried.

I’m not sure if that’s a compliment to the brewer or not, but I’m most definitely having a second glass.
