    Montana Heart Song's Note:

    I was making a pizza crust with beer and our son dumped the beer in the frying pan with the green peppers and onions, instead of the bowl with the pizza dough makings and a recipe was born!

    1. 1
      In large frying pan, add green peppers, onions and 2 tblsp olive oil. Heat to moderate heat. Stir a few times until onions and peppers are starting to get transparent. Add 6 oz of beer and cover, turn heat down and simmer about 10 minutes.
    2. 2
      Take out of pan and set aside in a bowl.
    3. 3
      To dry frying pan add 2 tblsp olive oil. Heat to moderate high, add shredded potatoes. Note: You may squeeze the potatoes to release and drain the starch and then add 1 tblsp lemon juice to potatoes so they do not turn as brown before cooking.
    4. 4
      Fry without turning. Use spatula to raise edges and raise slightly towards the middle.
    5. 5
      Turn heat down after the underside starts to turn medium brown. It is best to use non stick or heavy commercial skillet.
    6. 6
      Add the other 6 oz of beer, tip the pan and raise the edges so the beer goes on the underside of the potatoes.
    7. 7
      Add the salt and pepper sprinkling on the top of the potatoes.
    8. 8
      Add the reserved cooked peppers and onion mixture. Cover,cook low heat 10 to 15 minutes.
    9. 9
      Take frying pan to the table and cut in wedges and serve with spatula. Sprinkle with cheese for individual taste only.
    10. 10
      Note: My family used ketchup as a condiment for this recipe. Use a very mild mellow lite beer.

      I followed instructions to the letter, especially #10 & used a light beer. I also added 1 tbsp splenda to the beer just before adding. This was quite unique. I really liked it. Thanks for a special recipe!

      Very bitter taste, it may have been due to the brand of beer. I normally cook with some hot peppers,what ever I have on hand but don't use the beer. Sorry I will go back to my recipe. I am not sorry that I tried it just didn't like the taste.
