This yummy little slider recipe comes courtesy of my much-adored friend and savior, Cely. Cely babysits for me, hence the very, very appropriate use of the word savior. Cely is an awesome cook, and one of those enviable people who is always just “whipping” something up. Really?! What a gift.
This is what she told me: “I love Chinese and Japanese cuisine. I try to adapt some dishes to my busy life and combine my favorite Asian flavors. When I don’t have a lot of time or we are thinking about eating a hamburger, this is the recipe I use, and it always works! The nice part about this recipe is that you can add a bit of other ingredients like ginger, fresh green onions, fresh parsley, and it tastes great! You will never get tired of it!”
Cely’s Soy Sliders
Serving Size: 4 servings
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 10 to 15 minutes
- 1 pound Grass Fed Ground Beef, thawed
- 1/3 cup breadcrumbs
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- Mozzarella cheese, slices
- 1 tomato, sliced (optional)
- 1 onion, sliced (optional)
- Lettuce leaves (optional)
- Mayonnaise, ketchup and mustard (optional)
- King’s Hawaiian Rolls, split
1.) Thaw one pound of grass fed ground beef in the refrigerator for 24 to 48 hours. Prepare The Grill. Start the coals for a charcoal grill, or bring a gas grill to medium-high heat. Create a section of indirect heat and direct heat.
2.) Burgers. In a medium size bowl combine thawed Farmer Girl Ground Beef, breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, garlic, egg and soy sauce. Use your hands to mix it the beef gently. For sliders, form the mixture into approximately 6 patties. Brush the grill grate with oil to prevent the sliders from sticking. Place the sliders on the grill over direct heat and cook for 2 to 5 minutes on one side. DO NOT OVERCOOK! These sliders will cook extremely quickly! Flip and top with Mozzarella cheese.
Cook for an additional 1 to 3 minutes, until the second side is seared and easily lifts from the grill grate. Move slider (do not flip) to the indirect heat side of the grill and let cook for to desired finish. Remove the sliders to a platter, cover with foil and let rest for 5 minutes. DO NOT TURN OFF YOUR GRILL! Check one slider for finish. If the slider is not cooked to your preferred level of finish, simply throw the burgers back on the grill for a few minutes. Repeat resting process. Toast the King’s Hawaiian Rolls on the grill.
3.) Toppings. Dice the tomato, onion and wash the lettuce leaves while the sliders rest. Place a slider on a toasted roll, top with the tomato, onion, lettuce, mayo, mustard, and ketchup. Enjoy!
Pretty simple huh? I hope you enjoy Cely’s Soy Sliders Recipe!
