So last weekend when I was sick Matt went to his parents house to celebrate my Mother-in-Laws Birthday and he brought me a plate back! Not only did I eat it, I saved some to eat the next day and I loved it SO much I made it on Sunday night for just Matt and I! (I also ate it for lunch yesterday)
First up easy peasy Crunchy Coleslaw
2 lb. bag coleslaw
1 c. sugar
1 green pepper, chopped (I substituted for 3 Jalapenos)
1 tsp. salt
1 bunch green onions, chopped
1 tsp. pepper
2 pkgs. chicken Ramen noodles
2 c. vinegar
2 c. sunflower seeds
1 pkg. seasoning from Ramen
1 c. slivered almonds noodles
1 c. oil
Toast noodles, sunflower seeds and almonds in oven. In a salad bowl, combine coleslaw, green pepper and onion. When ready to serve add noodle mixture to coleslaw mixture and toss. Mix oil, sugar, salt, . pepper, vinegar and seasoning pack. Toss into salad just before serving
Now onto the main show…………..Pioneer Woman Spicy Whiskey Sliders (actually not spicy at all) These are TOO die for! Trust me…….I know this picture looks a tad weird but it is cooking, absorbing all the goodness and caramelizing! Yummy…..You can see her amazing pictures HERE
2 pounds Ground Meat (beef, Bison, Turkey)…I used Angus
Salt And Pepper
4 Tablespoons Butter
1 whole Large Onion, Diced
1/2 cup Whiskey
1 cup Barbecue Sauce (I used Billy Simms)
1/4 cup Jarred Jalapeno Slices (more To Taste)
12 whole Slider Buns Or Dinner Rolls, Split
Form the meat into 12 (or so) miniature patties and salt and pepper them on both sides. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat and cook the patties until just about done in the middle, approximately 3-4 minutes per side. Remove the patties from the skillet and set aside. Drain off all but 2 tablespoons of grease, then return the skillet to the stove.
Throw the diced onions in the skillet and stir to cook, about 3 minutes. Pour in whiskey (be careful if you’re cooking over an open flame; turn it off momentarily to be extra careful) and stir. Allow the whiskey to reduce by half, about 2 to 3 minutes, then stir in jalapenos and the barbecue sauce.
Reduce the heat to low and place the patties in the barbecue sauce, turning to coat. Allow the patties to simmer in the sauce until every thing’s hot and bubbly.
Place the patties on individual buns and be sure to spoon extra sauce (with the jalapenos!) over the top of each one before topping with the other half of the bun.
You guys try this today! You will NOT be disapointed!!!!!!!!!!!!
