This sloppy joe recipe is not very different from all the others. Some ground beef with some seasoning, beer, bacon and cheese. How can you go wrong with that?

Bacon Grease Tip

And don’t throw away that bacon grease! Bacon is expensive and the grease is great for making Scrambled Eggs, Grilled Cheese, Popcorn and even hash browns. It can keep up to 3 months if properly stored in the refrigerator.

When it comes to the beer you can use whatever type you have on hand. The type of beer does not have a significant impact on the final flavor.

But if you don’t keep beer on hand like I do and need to make a run to the local grocery store, a good Guinness is what I suggest.

How to Handle Raw Beef

  • Thaw frozen ground beef on a plate on the lowest shelf of the refrigerator, to avoid dripping onto other foods.
  • Keep raw and ready-to-eat meats separate.
  • Wash hands thoroughly before and after handling raw ground beef. Wash cutting boards, bowls, and utensils used to prepare raw ground beef with hot soapy water and rinse well.
  • Use separate plates to carry raw ground beef patties to the cooking area and cooked patties to the serving area.
  • Use a Thermometer to ensure Ground Beef Reaches the Safely Cooked Internal Temperature of 160°F.

    My family including myself are big bacon eaters so wanted to try this sloppy joe recipe. It was delicious. You cannot taste the beer which surprised me. But in the end we all enjoyed it so much that I will make it for company this weekend.
