Guinness BBQ Corned Beef and White Cheddar Sliders

Guinness BBQ Corned Beef and White Cheddar Sliders are highly addictive mini sandwiches made with corned beef that was cooked in tangy BBQ sauce and topped with a velvety white cheddar sauce.  

I know, I know.

St. Patrick’s Day is behind us.

But, I do my own thing. That’s the beauty of having my own little piece of the web all to myself, right?

I could probably eat corned beef on a weekly basis. The Reuben sandwich is hands down my favorite sandwich in the entire sandwich world.

I’m sure you’ve probably noticed that about me. If not – take a look at these, these and these, and there’s more if you want to keep browsing around my Reuben collection.

These sliders are highly, insanely addictive.

The BBQ sauce is tangy, spicy and paired with the white cheese dip makes them off the charts delicious. This was my first time to make BBQ sauce with beer.

For whatever reason, I’ve been curious about it and the thought of using a stout beer in my spicy/tangy BBQ sauce intrigued me. 

Did you know that beer is a natural meat tenderizer? I was today years old when I found that out.

Beer contains alpha acids and tannins, and although that wasn’t important for this particular recipe, I’ll keep it in mind for the next time. 

I guess you learn something new everyday.

    This BBQ sauce is AMAZING!!! I am going to go for the full slider based on just the BBQ sauce. I cannot wait!

  2. Dude

    So, I am guessing that you do not cook the corned beef as you would in a traditional corned beef and cabbage slow cooker recipe?

  3. Ooooh I love love love that Guinness BBQ sauce! And those sliders … oh my, I’m definitely drooling right now. Pinning this lovely recipe … and thank you so much for sharing my recipe. 🙂
