Barbecue Beef Sliders

WARNING: These sliders are to die for. Like, maybe literally. They are full of greasy goodness. So, so good for your tastebuds, but so bad for your health.

We had about a pound-and-a-half of cooked beef brisket left over from Christmas. Never wanting to waste good food (but hating to eat the same thing again), I came up with this repurposing of some good beef. The males in the family devoured these wicked good sliders, but I was a good girl and stuck to my diet and had none. But they sure smelled good!


Barbecue Beef Sliders

  • 1.5 pounds leftover beef brisket, sliced very thin and cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • 2 yellow onions, sliced thin
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ a 14-ounce bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce + 4 Tbsp
  • ½ stick butter
  • 1 package of Hawaiian sweet rolls
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese

In large skillet, caramelize garlic and onions in oil; transfer to bowl and set aside. In same skillet (without cleaning it), sauté sliced brisket until warmed through and browned. Stir in half-bottle of barbecue sauce and mix well.

Grease a 9×13 baking pan. Cut Hawaiian sweet rolls in half (but do not separate them). Place bottom half in greased pan; spread 2 Tbsp barbecue sauce over rolls. Top with brisket, caramelized onions, and cheddar cheese. Top with top half of rolls.

Preheat oven to 350°. Melt butter in same skillet used for onions and meat. Add in 2 Tbsp barbecue sauce. Using a basting brush, spread butter-barbecue sauce mixture atop rolls. Cover sliders with tin foil and bake until warmed through, about 30 minutes. Cut into individual rolls and serve hot.
