    Default Answer within next 25 mins please??!

    I have no brandy with which to flambe my beef chunks for making traditional beef stew (I want to really seal the flavour in) - is there any other hard liquor that will do this and not taste like crap? Whiskey? HELP!!!

    Screw the meat, drink the Whiskey.

    Yeah, I'm no help.

    Seriously though if you were going to use Brandy you're prolly better with some kind of red wine seeing as Brandy is closer to wine than spirits. Even beer would be better than a hard spirit imo.

    I'd say red wine would be the best replacement.

    I'm no chef but I thought you needed something with a higher percentage of alcohol than wine to flambe with.

    Aw fuck, Jennifer, I just dumped in a ton of Creme de Menthe AND some Chocolate Liqueur.

    I have a bottle of red in with the stew but this is for the 'sealing' part so yes, it does have to be hard alcohol (I wanted to flambe the meat chunks after browning). I used some whiskey. This better not taste like shit because mt whole kitchen is splattered with fat, I'm sweating like a pig and...yeah. This better taste good. I am going to lose major points with the bf if it isn't.

    Thanks for all the fast responses!!! Wish me luck.

    EDIT: Yes, I consumed some whiskey. What do you take me for?
