What is a “slider”? Nothing more than a “little” burger. Not big enough for a standard sized bun, you can serve these on dinner rolls.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Salt & Pepper 2 lbs. of ground beef. (You could also use turkey, caribou, moose, etc)
Add 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire Sauce.
Mix with your hands until just combined, then form the meat into 8 little patties. Give them a slight indentation in the middle, as this keeps them from “puffing up” too much when they cook.
Pop them in your oven, and bake them for 20-25 minutes.
In a skillet, sauté a diced onion in 2 tablespoons of butter.
Aren’t the onions looking scrumptious?
Time to get them drunk! If you are using a gas stove, please momentarily shut off the eye…
Pour in 1/2 cup Whiskey.
Turn your eye back on and let that cook down until the liquid is reduced by about half.
Add in 1 cup of your favorite Barbecue Sauce.
Now for an either-or. You’re going to add some peppers. You can chop up a couple chipotle peppers, or use some jalapeno slices.
I decided to go with the jalapenos. Drop a few in there, and let them simmer just a couple minutes.
Take your cooked burgers, and place them in the skillet, turning them over to coat them. Let them continue to simmer for a couple more minutes.
This is optional, but while the patties are bathing in the sauce you can brown your rolls, cut-side-down in another skillet, with a little butter.
And serve on the rolls, topped with some more peppers if you like.
Or you can use dinner rolls. Enjoy!
