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. After cooking the burgers, I set them aside and sauteed a chopped onion in some of the drippings. I 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. The sliders went back into the pan to get a thorough coating of sauce before being plated on split Hawaiian rolls.
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!
