Say hello to the most over-the-top sloppy joe of all time. We're talking gooey cheese and smoky bacon in every crevice. Oh, and did we mention there's beer? It all comes together for a decadent dinner that's just crazy enough to work.MORE+LESS-
lb ground beef (at least 80% lean)
tablespoon Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
cup Progresso™ beef flavored broth (from 32-oz carton)
teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
teaspoons Dijon mustard
cups shredded Cheddar cheese (8 oz)
In 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef and onion over medium-high heat 6 to 8 minutes, stirring frequently, until beef is thoroughly cooked. Add flour; cook and stir 1 minute. Stir in beer, broth, Worcestershire sauce and mustard. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium; simmer 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sauce is thickened. Remove from heat; stir in 1 cup of the cheese. Crumble 4 of the bacon slices; stir into beef mixture.
Sprinkle remaining 1 cup cheese over beef mixture. Do not stir. Cover skillet; let stand about 5 minutes or until cheese has melted. Spoon mixture onto bottom halves of toasted buns. Top each with 2 slices bacon and top of toasted bun.
- Worcestershire sauce is a salty, savory condiment often found in steak sauces.
- Not stirring the last cup of cheese into the beef mixture allows it to melt on top for ultimate cheesiness.
- Taking the time to toast the buns before topping with the beef mixture gives the dish an added crunch and helps to keep the buns from getting soggy.
- Lager beer is the ultimate choice for cooking. Since it's lighter, you'll avoid the risk of your dish tasting hoppy, malty or bitter like some IPAs or ales.
