Beer Braised Shredded Beef Sliders are the best non-traditional slider you will ever have. Slow cooked beef, beer cheese, caramelized onions on a Pepperidge Farm® soft slider bun.
I am the King of the Slider and have created many new varieties over the years. For the playoffs, I came up these Beer Braised Shredded Beef Sliders which includes all my favorite ingredients: beef, cheese, beer and Pepperidge Farm® buns.
My new slider consists of slow cooked beef, topped with beer cheese and beer infused caramelized onions. The best part is you can make all parts of the slider the day before your party.
I was at my local Kroger, I am usually there every other day, picking up all my supplies to make my Beer Braised Shredded Beef Sliders and the rest of my watch party supplies. You can pick up all of your Game Day Greats like these Pepperidge Farm® buns paired with a nice Warsteiner, or your favorite pilsner-style beer, at your local Kroger. Kroger has created a Game Day Greats site to help you plan your party with coupons and discounts on these great products.
To make the beef pre-heat the oven to 275°F. Add all braised beef ingredients to a large dutch oven. Slow cook meat for 5-6 hours. Remove meat from oven and shred with two forks,
While beef cooks make the beer cheese sauce and caramelized onions. On game day, re-heat the shredded beef in a two-quart slow cooker. Heat the beer cheese sauce in another small slow cooker. Set out the caramelized onions and the Pepperidge Farm® buns and let your guests make their Beer Braised Shredded Beef Sliders throughout the day.
Add a cooler full of beer and you are ready to relax and watch the games. Now if that doesn’t say Game Day Greats I don’t know what does.
