Ingredients

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

Directions

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.
