“My own idea, Asian inspired sliders!!!”

     Hey there everyone! I know it has been awhile since I blogged last. I know because my ideas and photos are starting to pile up.. Ahhh. With Christmas just around the corner things have been busy here at the Parsons household, Happy but busy! 🙂

     This idea came to me from watching Anthony Bourdain’s show,  No Reservations.. This is a great show where he travels all over the word trying out food specific to that region. Funny thing is this show was done in Vancouver, B.C. where a very innovative entrepreneur opened up a roadside stand serving Japanese inspired infusion food selling hot dogs, and sausages…. This show gave me an instant craving, and an idea, Asian Inspired Sliders. 

     So my first try at this recipe turned out pretty good but second time around I would tweak the idea just a little, that is the recipe I am giving you today. Read on because this is super easy and a great way to impress your friends and family! Sliders are always a hit and you can do to them pretty much whatever you want to.. Maybe this will inspire you to create a slider of you own! What you will need are some of the things we put into the noodle bowl, which works out great by getting two birds stoned at once or should I have said killing two birds with one stone.. 😉

Ingredients:

  • 1 bag of picnic buns or any rolls you may want to use for your buns, cut them in half.
  • 1 lbs ground beef
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp fish oil
  • 1/2 tsp soy
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3 green onions chopped
  • Kosher Salt & Pepper to season
  • 1/2 sheet of nori paper
  • Handful of Beansprouts rinsed off under cold water
  • Handful of sliced red onion rings
  • 1/2 cup real mayo
  • Wasabi as much or as little as you desire

In a large bowl mix together your ground beef, sesame oil, fish oil, soy, egg yolk and your green onion, mix and set aside.

In a small bowl make your Wasabi Mayo by combining your Mayo and Wasabi adding as little or as much as you desire. For me I bring on the heat, it is a nice mix when you combine it with the slider.  Set this aside. Cut your red sliced onion rings, and buns in half and rinse your bean sprouts off under cold water!

    Turn a large skillet on to 5 or 6, adding very little Extra Virgin Olive Oil to grease your pan. I always use a cast iron for burgers and they cook just prefect. Start making your slider patties and add to the heat skillet until they are done, not over cooked!  Remove them from the heat and tent to let them finish their cooking and reasorb their juices. Let them tent for 5 Minutes.

When the sliders are cooled off, its time to assemble them, put some Wasabi Mayo on the top bun, then add the slider to the bottom bun. Adding to them your onion rings and a few bean sprouts! What I didn’t do this time that I will do for sure the next time is add thinned slices cut  up nori paper, for texture and for presentation. Serve with potato wedges or french fries!

This is the final product hot off the press and pretty good I might add!!
