What are Tender Beef Sliders?

Inspired by the flavors of Birria, these sliders feature tender shredded beef piled high on Hawaiian rolls. Traditionally made with goat meat, Birria has gained popularity with beef as well, resulting in mouthwatering dishes like these sliders. Topped with cheese, onions, cilantro, jalapenos, and queso fresco, these sliders are bursting with flavor. Don’t forget to serve them with a side of the delicious juice from the shredded beef for dipping!

Ingredients & Substitutions

  • Shredded Beef: While homemade shredded beef is recommended for optimal flavor, precooked options are available at some supermarkets.
  • Hawaiian Rolls: Sweet and soft, Hawaiian rolls are the perfect choice for sliders. If unavailable, homemade rolls can be substituted.
  • Cheese: Mozzarella cheese slices are used to add creaminess to the sliders. Shredded cheese or other varieties can be used based on personal preference.
  • Toppings: Customize your sliders with toppings like diced onions, chopped cilantro, sliced jalapenos, and crumbled queso fresco.

How to Store

Leftover sliders can be stored in an airtight container or wrapped in aluminum foil for 3-4 days in the refrigerator. To reheat, place them in the oven at 350°F (175°C) for approximately 10 minutes. While the microwave can also be used, it may result in slightly soggy buns.

Can I Freeze Tender Beef Sliders?

Yes! To freeze assembled sliders, follow these steps:

  1. Assemble the sliders on a baking sheet in a single layer.
  2. Place the baking sheet in the freezer until the sliders are solid.
  3. Transfer the frozen sliders to a freezer-safe container or bag and store for up to 3 months.
  4. When ready to bake, add a few extra minutes to the baking time.
