Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

4 Tbsp
butter, unsalted
1 tsp
coriander seeds
1/2 tsp
caraway seeds
1 1/4 lb
carrots, peeled and halved lengthwise (12 carrots)
3 Tbsp
brown sugar, light (packed)
12 oz
lager beer

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat a skillet (large enough to hold carrot halves in a single layer) over medium-high heat and add butter.
2
When butter has melted, add coriander and caraway seeds and toss to coat with the butter. Toast for a minute.
3
Add carrot halves and toss to coat with the butter. Season with salt and add the brown sugar.
4
Continue cooking over medium heat until the sugar dissolves and coats the carrots, about 1 minute. Add beer and continue cooking until carrots are tender when pierced with the tip of a knife, 25 to 30 minutes. (If beer cooks down, add a little water to finish cooking.)
5
Serve immediately.
