Spicy Whiskey BBQ Sliders

One of the first recipes we’ve tried from Pioneer Woman’s newest cookbook was this winner, Spicy Whiskey BBQ Sliders.  We liked these so much that we’ve already made them again for friends.  Easy, tasty, and guy-friendly – a winning combination.  Here’s how they came together:

First, I formed the slider patties and seasoned them with salt and pepper.JBD_8766 JBD_8772After cooking the burgers, I set them aside and sauteed a chopped onion in some of the drippings.JBD_8773 JBD_8778I deglazed the pan with some whiskey (I use the cheap stuff to cook with), then let that reduce for a few minutes before stirring in the jalapenos and barbecue sauce.JBD_8783 JBD_8785 JBD_8788The sliders went back into the pan to get a thorough coating of sauce before being plated on split Hawaiian rolls.  JBD_8791 JBD_8776 JBD_8795

We really like the flavor of these.  The whiskey doesn’t overwhelm the sauce and the jalapenos add something to the mix without making the sliders too spicy.  We’ll definitely add them to our favorites list and make them again.  Perfect for dinner or as part of a party spread!
