The ‘Burgh’s Boilermaker Beer Soup
“a shot ʻn a beer” tradition from the good old days, is reincarnated as a comfort food!
2 Cups chicken broth (may substitute vegetable broth)
1 1/2 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup sliced green onions
2 cloves of garlic (may substitute diced jarred garlic)
2 1/2 cups of milk
4 TAB. flour
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 cup of your favorite beer
1 “shot” of your favorite whiskey
2 3 ounce packages of cream cheese, cut into cubes
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 15 ounce can of petite diced tomatoes, drained
salt and pepper to taste
Bacon Bits optional for garnish
PITTSBURGH’S Original Sports SauceTM for garnish
In a large saucepan combine the chicken broth, carrots, onions, and garlic. Saute for 5
minutes. Wisk while while combining milk, flour, dry mustard, and then stir into broth.
Add beer and whiskey. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened. Cook and stir 1
more minute. Pour about 1 cup of the hot broth mixture over the cut up cream cheese
stir until well blended. Stir this cream cheese mixture into remaining broth mixture in
saucepan. Stir in all the cheddar cheese until melted. Add tomato and low simmer for 5
minutes. Ladle into bowls, and top with 1 teaspoon of Sports Sauce. Of, place Sports
Sauce in a plastic condiment bottle with the tip shortened a bit, so you can squeeze out
some Sports Sauce in the shape of an “S” on the top of the soup!
