Tangerine IPA Yogurt Sauce

Tangerine IPA Yogurt SauceThis Tangerine IPA Yogurt Sauce recipe adds a nice bit of tang from yogurt, some acidic citrus notes from a hoppy IPA, and a nuttiness from the sesame seed paste (seed butter) that perfectly complements a Chicken & Turkey Köfte with IPA.

As this sauce is made up of mostly yogurt, using a high-quality cultured dairy product is critical. I love the taste and texture of Straus Family Creamery. Their Greek style, plain, whole milk yogurt creates a wonderful canvas for other flavors to dance off of. The use of more beneficial bacteria and cultures in this style of yogurt add in probiotic health as well.

When choosing a beer to cook with, a citrus-forward APA | IPA | DIPA is preferred. As this fermented dairy sauce isn’t cooked, there aren’t any issues with heat affecting the hop bitterness. This raw sauce, with the right beer, will pop with wonderful citrus flavors. Think about the beautiful grapefruit flavors from a Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. Pale Ale, or the tangerine notes from a Firestone Walker Brewing Co. Union Jack IPA or other hop derived flavor found in their Luponic Distortion IPA Series. The beer style is important, as is the final flavor that the beer will impart in the finished sauce.

Tahini, a Middle Eastern sesame seed butter, adds a nice touch of nuttiness, to round out the tang of the yogurt, the citrus hoppiness along with some tangerine | orange zest and juice. I add in some whole seeds as well, to give the Tangerine IPA Yogurt Sauce a little crunch and extra nutrition.

If you are making a Middle Eastern feast, try serving this sauce with Pomegranate Rose Stout Yogurt Sauce and the garlicky rich Toum sauce. These sauces were designed to go with Middle Eastern FalafelZa’atar Roasted EggplantHomemade Pita Beer BreadHoppy TabboulehBaba Ghanoush, and Beer Hummus. This sauce would also be incredible on a Mediterranean Stuffed Leg of LambHomemade Gyro Meat, or a Beer Brined Free Range Chicken.

 

Makes: about 1/2 cup of sauce
