Grilled Chipotle Ranch Sliders

I make sliders much more often than I do full-sized burgers. I’ve made all sorts of them. From chicken chorizo patty melt sliders to cedar-planked beef sliders, to grilled Big Mac sliders, I just love sliders. These grilled chipotle Ranch sliders have such fantastic flavor. The chipotles in adobo not only add great heat to the sliders, they also keep the patties very moist and tender. I topped them with mayonnaise mixed with a bit more chipotles in adobo for a nice creamy (and spicy) finish. Not too hot, mind you. Just a great spicy flavor.

Slow Cooker Corned Beef Sliders

The corned beef on these slow cooker sliders is beyond amazing. Yes, it’s tender, but that’s not the main attraction. The flavor is incredible. The corned beef brisket cooks for hours in a wonderful mix of vegetables, seasonings and broth. There’s a mild tomato flavor, which isn’t something you normally expect, but it’s just another taste that really sets this corned beef apart from anything else.

Servings 12 sliders

Ingredients

For the brisket

  • 1 3-4 pound corned beef brisket rinsed
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 3 carrots chopped
  • 3 stalks celery chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon celery seeds
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon Kosher salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 bottle beer

For the sliders

  • Dinner rolls or slider buns
  • Swiss cheese
  • Thousand Island Dressing
  • Unsalted butter melted

Instructions

For the brisket

  • Layer 1/2 of the onion, carrots, celery and garlic in the bottom of a slow cooker set to low.
  • Add corned beef brisket, fat side up.
  • Add remaining onion, carrots, celery and garlic.
  • In a bowl whisk together the broth, tomato paste, Worcestershire, brown sugar, celery seeds and red pepper. Pour over the beef.
  • Sprinkle beef with salt and pepper.
  • Slowly pour beer around the beef and cover the cooker. Cook on low for 8-9 hours until the corned beef is tender.
  • Remove meat and slice or shred as desired. If storing leftovers, I would add a bit of the sauce from the slow cooker so that the beef doesn't dry out when reheated.

For the sliders

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cut buns in half horizontally. Spread the insides with the Thousand Island dressing.
  • Add corned beef and cheese.
  • Add bun tops and brush with melted butter.

Big Mac Slider Hoagies

I love making grilled Big Macs here at home. Sometimes I make full-sized ones. And sometimes, I make mini-sized ones. These Big Mac slider hoagies are a take on my favorite Big Mac sliders. They’re the same great tasting sandwich, but served on hoagie buns for a little something different.

Big Mac Slider HoagiesNothing beats fresh toppings on a hot-off-the-grill beef burger, specially with a nice big dollop of special sauce. Need a little kick in your sauce? Add a few squirts of Sriracha or hot sauce. As much as I do love spicy foods, I usually keep my Big Mac Slider Hoagies ‘classic’, tasting just like the burgers you can get at the restaurant!

Also try my Big Mac meatball subs!
