Cheddar-Beer Sauce

After a long but enjoyable pregnancy (my baby boy was two weeks overdue), I finally had my first sips of beer today. And they were delicious, as was the Cheddar-Beer Sauce I made for our steamed broccoli. Simple recipe that leaves you with more than half a bottle of beer to enjoy!

Cheddar-Beer Sauce
1/2 cup beer, divided
1 1/2 Tbsp. flour
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup shredded Cheddar
1/4 tsp. salt
Parsley to garnish

Whisk 1/4 cup beer and flour together. Combine remaining beer and milk in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Simmer, then add flour mixture. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer two minutes. Stir in cheese, salt and parsley. Serve warm over steamed vegetables.
