IMG_1904

Y’all…these are divine.  This is a Pioneer Woman recipe that I tried for this year’s super bowl party!  It was juicy, spicy and everything I hoped it would be!  The Pioneer Woman’s recipes have yet to disappoint me!  For her original recipe click the link below for awesomeness!  This recipe would also be amazing as a full size burger!

Original Recipe:  http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2011/12/spicy-whiskey-bbq-sliders/

I will definitely make this recipe again.  Everyone at the party really seemed to enjoy them!  These bad boys are sweet and spicy!

I did make 3 tiny changes to the ingredients:

1. I added sliced pepper jack on top of each patty.

2. I used 1/2 jalapenos and 1/2 roasted red peppers in the sauce instead of just jalapenos.

3. I seasoned the patties with salt, pepper, AND chili powder.   🙂

Ingredients:

– 2 lbs of ground beef

– salt

– pepper

– chili powder

– 4 tbsp butter

– butter spread (for toasting the buns)

– 1/2 cup whiskey

– 1 cup BBQ sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray’s)

– 1 yellow onion, diced

– 3 tbsp jarred jalapenos, diced

– 3 tbsp jarred roasted red peppers, diced

– 12 slider buns or King’s Hawaiian Dinner Rolls IMG_1902

Directions:

Make 12 patties and season with salt, pepper, and chili powder.  (I let them bask in the seasoning for about 3 hours in the fridge.)

Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium high heat.

Cook the patties in the butter on both sides until pink in the center.  I did this in 2 batches of 6.  Set patties aside.

Add onion and peppers to the butter and cook for about 5 minutes.

Slowly add in the whiskey and BBQ sauce.

Return the patties to the skillet with sauce and finished cooking the patties til well done, flipping occasionally.  I was able to fit all 12 patties in the skillet for this step.

For the buns, heavily butter the insides and toast until dark brown and crispy in a separate skillet.

Cut pepper jack slices to fit each slider.IMG_1897

Place a slice of cheese on the bottom of each bun.

Then place a patty on each bun.

Spoon extra sauce on each patty.

Then slap a 2nd piece of cheese on each patty.

Put the top bun on and DIG IN!!!
