1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large shallot, minced
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
2 pounds sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 cups beer, such as Heist Brewery Hive Five
Start with a large saute pan over medium heat. Add the olive oil and shallots, and cook until the shallots are slightly translucent and give off a nice fragrance, about 3 minutes. Add the brown sugar, honey and crushed red pepper; stir until well mixed. Now add the crumbled bacon, and stir. Turn the heat down to low, add the beer, and bring to a simmer.
Cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid has reduced by half and you have a shimmery, glossy mixture, about 2 hours.
