Smoked Sausage, Cheddar Beer Soup




14 oz. Beef Smoked Sausage – Halved and Sliced

32 oz. Beef Stock 

12 oz. Bottle of Beer - (Gluten free beer if needed)

1 Cup Carrot – Chopped

1 Cup Celery – Chopped

1 Small Onion – Diced

4 Cloves Garlic – Minced

1 tsp. Red Pepper Flakes

1 tsp. Sea Salt – More if desired

½ tsp. Black Pepper

1 Cup Heavy Cream

8 oz. Cream Cheese

2 Cups Sharp Cheddar Cheese – Shredded


Heat slow cooker on high setting.

To the slow cooker, add sausage, beef stock, beer, carrot, celery, onion, garlic red pepper flakes, sea salt, and pepper.  Cook on high 4 hours.

Add heavy cream, cream cheese and cheddar cheese.  Stir until there are no longer any clumps of cream cheese.  Using a whisk will help this process along.  Taste to see if more salt and pepper is desired. Cook additional 2 hours


Add more sausage, like double it, so good with more. I used Coors Light for the beer, but anything is probably fine.
