RECIPE: Easy Beer Cheese Dip

25th Dec 10 (Sat) Leave a comment Go to comments

I made an adjustment on an already adjusted recipe.  It’s really simple, involves no cooking/heating, and it’s really versatile (choose your beer, cheese, hot sauce).  Behold…

Beer Cheese Dip

makes about 4 cups

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb cheese, grated (4 cups)
  • 4 cloves garlic, mashed
  • 2 tsp minced onion (or 1/2 tsp onion powder)
  • 1 tsp dry Chinese-style mustard (or 1 ½ Tbl Dijon mustard)
  • 2-3 tsp hot sauce (tabasco, etc)
  • 2 tsp shoyu, soy sauce, or vegetarian Worcestershire sauce (if you can find it)
  • 1 Tbl butter (or butter substitute)
  • 8 oz. beer

Steps:

  1. Warm all ingredients to room temperature.
  2. Grate or grind the cheese.
  3. Place all the ingredients, except beer, in mixer bowl.
  4. Gradually add beer and beat until smooth and fluffy.  This is where a food processor is handy.
  5. Store in covered container in refrigerator for at least one day (not mandatory, but preferred).
  6. Serve at room temperature with chips, crackers or dark bread.

Again, the use of a food processor to blend the ingredients isn’t mandatory, but it makes it oh-so-easy.  I made it for a Christmas dinner tonight, and it is bound to be a hit.  My cheese: sharp cheddar.  My beer: Deschutes Black Butte.  My hot sauce: Frank’s RedHot Aged Cayenne.

Happy Festivus!  Oh, and yeah, this would make a kick ass Super Bowl snack recipe.  Super easy and quite delish!
