Easy & delicious, these sliders will surely satisfy! Of course these were seriously given the stamp of approval by my soldier.
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!
- 2 lb ground Beef
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1 tsp ground Black Pepper
- 2 Tb Worcestershire Sauce
- 2 Tb Butter
- 1 Onion, diced
- ½ cup Whiskey
- 1 cup Barbecue Sauce
- Jalapeno slices or Chipotle Peppers, chopped (your choice)
- 8 Small Rolls
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Combine the meat with the salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce. Form into 8 small patties, with a slight indentation in the center. Bake 20-25 minutes. Meanwhile, sauté the onions in the butter until golden and tender. Stir in the whiskey (with stove eye off) and then stir in the barbecue sauce. Turn the eye back on and toss in whichever peppers you choose to use, and simmer for about 5 minutes. Nestle the cooked beef patties into the sauce, turning them over to coat. Let them cook in the sauce for just a couple minutes.
- If you choose to grill your rolls, heat a second skillet, and drop in some butter. Brown the rolls cut-side-down until they are golden. Serve the sliders on the rolls, topped with some more peppers if you like.
