All opinions are mine alone. #BeersAndBuns #CollectiveBias. When it comes to the Big Game, my husband and I may be on opposite sides of the proverbial playing field. One thing we always agree on is how much we enjoy a delicious tailgate spread. One of our favorite eats are my Beer Soaked Slow Cooker Pastrami Game Day Sliders.
We serve them on our favorite Pepperidge Farm® Bakery Classics Sweet and Soft Slider Buns. They go great with our favorite pilsner beer, and we get them both from Kroger! I love this recipe because it is easy to make and delivers big on flavor. Adding the beer ads a depth of flavor you would not believe! I serve mine with sauerkraut, but you can top yours with close slaw as well. Either topping is a winner in my book!
Irish Fare; A Family Tradition
Both my husband and I come from Irish stock. My grandfather Thomas came from Ireland to America in the late 1920’s. My grandmother Margaret was also Irish and made many of my grandad’s favorite dishes. Grandma Margaret taught my mom to make many of those dishes. My mom made at least one of her favorite Irish dishes every week. We loved her Irish Shepherd’s Pie and homemade Irish Soda Bread. One of my dad’s staples was her corned beef. He ate it with cabbage, in stew and on rye bread. I in turn, have made many of these dishes for my own family.
Kroger; Another Family Tradition
We have been shopping at Kroger for as long as I can remember. My brothers both worked there while they were in high school. A few years ago, my husband worked there a few nights a week to make extra money. I trust Kroger for their affordable prices and high quality products. We are on a first name basis with James from the butcher area and with Steve from the seafood counter. I trust their recommendations for our favorite cuts of meat and seafood. James found me the best cut of corned beef brisket for our Beer Soaked Slow Cooker Pastrami Game Day Sliders!
Kroger; Your Game Day Destination
I enjoy doing our grocery shopping, especially for a special occasion. When it comes to the Big Game, Kroger is our Game Day Destination! I can find all the fixings I need to make and to serve with my Beer Soaked Slow Cooker Pastrami Game Day Sliders. We make a lot of sliders in our home, so I almost always have a bag of Pepperidge Farm® Bakery Classics Sweet and Soft Slider Buns. They are so light and delicious! They are created by bakers and always baked the right way. My son uses them to make my ground turkey or fried chicken sliders or lunch meat sandwiches.
Kroger; They Sell Beer Now!
Because our local Kroger now sells beer, we can even stock up on our favorite pilsners to make my Beer Soaked Slow Cooker Pastrami. I love that I can skip the trip to the beer and wine store and get what I need from Kroger! In my opinion, there is nothing better than an ice cold made pilsner from Kroger to wash down my Beer Soaked Slow Cooker Pastrami Game Day Sliders. And when you are done with these delicious sliders, be sure to finish your meal with one (or two) of my Brown Sugar Cinnamon Rice Krispies Treats Brownies!
