Bacon, Beer, and Cheese Sloppy Joes: Submitted by: Wendy R Cook | Date Added: 5 Apr 2019 Ingredients:

1 1/2 lbs ground beef
8 slices of bacon , chopped
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup tomato paste
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 cup beer (your choice)
1/2 cup beef broth
2 cups sharp cheddar cubed
6 brioche buns

Cooking Instructions:

1. In a large skillet cook the bacon on medium high heat for 2-3 minutes or until crispy but still bendable.

2. Remove the bacon from the pan and drain all but two tablespoons of the fat.

3. Add the onions and cook for 4-5 minutes, or until softened.

4. Add in the beef, lower the heat to medium and cook well, breaking it apart but leaving some chunks bigger, Do not mash the burger. The larger crumbles will hold the sandwich better.

5. Cook until well browned (5-6 minutes), then add in the ketchup, tomato paste, Worchestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, beer and beef broth.

6. Stir well, continue cooking until the sauce starts to evaporate and the mixture becomes sloppy.

7. The consistency you are looking for is reduced enough that spoonfuls can be placed on top of each other with the bottom spoonful not spreading more than a half inch or so.

8. Add in the chunks of cheddar and cooked bacon crumbles a minute before serving and stir just slightly to melt them into little puddles.

9. Toast the buns then spoon over the mixture and top wityh additional bacon (if desired),
