  • 1
    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.
  • 2
    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.

Expert Tips

  • 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.
