Dinner Tonight: Beer Cheese Joes

The other day, I thinking about how I should make a good Beer Cheese Soup for supper…and then I thought…hmmmm…that would make a good Sloppy Joe…so, I married the two together and voila!  A Beer Cheese Sloppy Joe!
If you love Beer Cheese Soup, you will love this recipe too.  Dinner mixed and matched.  Enjoy!
This recipe serves 4 adults.

Shopping List
1 pound of ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1 tablespoon flour
1 cup beer (I used a Boston Lager but you use what you have on hand)
1 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded
Chopped chives to garnish
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
Salt and Pepper
Burger Buns
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown your ground beef in a tablespoon or so of EVOO.  Once browned and crumbly, add in your chopped onion and a generous pinch of salt and pepper.  Saute about 4 minutes.  Sprinkle your flour down over your meat and onion mixture and then slowly pour your beer in the pan.  Reduce heat to low and stir the beef and flour together until it starts to thicken a bit (about 3 minutes).  Add in your shredded cheddar cheese and stir until melted (about 3 minutes).
Take your burger bun and top it with a scoop of sloppy joe mixture and then garnish with a little bit of chives.


That’s it!  The flavor of beer cheese soup but in Sloppy Joe form!

    Just made them for dinner – thanks for the tip!! And I just need to pause in amazement that I had ingredients for a not-frozen dinner ALREADY IN THE HOUSE.

    Can I just say that I'm so glad this is all in one pan??? Hallelujah!!!

    Do you think ground turkey would work in this recipe?! It sounds delicious, however I normally have ground turkey on hand and not ground beef! Thanks!

  • Sally Hepworth September 24, 2014 at 2:34 am

    Yum. Wish it was dinner time now!

  • Sheila Mitchell September 24, 2014 at 4:38 am

    I'm excited to find your blog through Bloglovin'! I will definitely be following you! But what I really want to say, is it is great to find such an awesome alternative to regular sloppy joes! And as someone originally from Wisconsin – there is nothing better than a cheesy, beer-filled alternative for fall! This is definitely a recipe I will try in my family!

  • Mix and Match Mama September 24, 2014 at 9:38 am

    Yes! Ground turkey would be perfect in this!

  • Haley @ Cupcakes and Sunshine September 25, 2014 at 4:40 am

    NO WAY! these sound increeeedible!

  • Laura September 25, 2014 at 5:18 pm

    Hi Shay!
    My grocery store sells pre-diced onions so I was wondering what the equivalent to one onion would be? I am planning to make these tonight. Thanks!

  • Mix and Match Mama September 25, 2014 at 5:20 pm

    I'd use about 3/4 a cup. Enjoy!

    Couldn't think of a fast supper for my guy's golf night since he gets in later those days…knew your one pound meals wouldn't let me down! Making this tomorrow, bonus is I got pretzel rolls for them, yum!

    This may be a silly question, but do you drain the grease from your ground beef?

    • Mix and Match Mama September 8, 2015 at 6:17 pm

      I use such a lean ground beef (96/4), that I don't. Typically, I would only drain if I used less than 90/10.

  • Christy September 8, 2015 at 6:09 pm

    Got these on the menu for this week AND apple chicken meatballs. Can't wait to try them!

  • Emily Forever After November 23, 2015 at 5:35 pm

    Is there a way to adapt it for a slow cooker?

    • Mix and Match Mama November 23, 2015 at 8:12 pm

      I wouldn't want to put the beer in the slow cooker bc the alcohol will just intensify instead of burning off.
