Bad Cook Recipes: Cheap and Easy Beer Casserole

Updated on March 7, 2008

Here's one somebody else made earlier...

Sidebar Sidedish

A nice accompaniment to this meal is any old bread you have laying around. In the days of old (a time slightly after yore, but definitely before now), French peasants would even use hollowed out old loaves of bread as dishes. You don't have to go that far, but you can use bread that is starting to go stale for the purposes of dipping.

Now you can combine two of your favorite passions, alcoholism, and eating!

(I say that as if the idea of adding beer or wine to food is a new one, it's not, but there's a decent chance that to someone, somewhere, it is a new idea, and I want them to be excited too, okay? This could potentially make up for that entire Santa Claus debacle.)

This meal will provide you with protein, the thrill of adding alcohol to your meal, and enough nutrition to get you through another day. According to some anti meat lobbyists, it may also give you CJD, but what do they know? (It is recommended that if you want to enjoy this recipe that you don't Google CJD and find out what it is. That sort of thing can really spoil your day.)

Okay, so, here's what you'll need.


  • Meat - This is great for cheap cuts of meat because the lengthened cooking process will make the meat more tender. Bonus!
  • A bit of oil
  • BEER
  • Onion
  • Carrot
  • Celery
  • Potatoes
  • OR
  • Other Vegetables - Whatever you have in your cupboards should work with this recipe.
  • Tinned Tomatoes and/or Soup Mix

Assembly Directions

Hack the meat into chunks.

Heat oil in a pan, and when it is hot, toss those meat chunks in there, then swizzle them around until they are nice and brown.

Pour in beer and simmer all together on high for a few minutes. During this time all the alcohol will boil away, so you'll be safe to drive after eating this dish, and you can give it to kids as well.

Peel and chop those vegetables up, and add them to a pot with your soup mix and or tinned tomatoes. The idea is that you need enough liquid in the pot to cover all the ingredients.

Add the meat and cook that baby on a low heat for around an hour and a half, longer if you feel like it, or if you forget to take it off the stove.

Et Voila! Le velo est sur la table!

This meal is cheap, easy, and a great way to get kids to eat their vegetables, because most kids will consume anything if you tell them that there is alcohol in it. As an added bonus, you get to watch them pretend to be drunk afterwards.

It's a meal and a show all in one!
