I adapted this recipe from ScottRobertsweb.com. It’s not on his site anymore and, of course, we’ve changed the recipe a bit.
For these delectable and fun beef sliders
you can use 85% ready-made ground beef (a little fat cooks a better burger). Or, you can buy a beautiful, lean cut of meat and grind it yourself in a food processor. That’s the best way to know your beef is safely handled.
If you want to cut further on calories, you can move to 93% lean beef.
We have a Ninja blender that works great as a food processor. Just make sure to put it in the dishwasher to get all the meat cleaned out when you’re done.
1 lb. 85% lean ground beef
Soft goat cheese (Ricotta works, too)
Bean sprouts (Alfalfa sprouts will also do)
Add Antioxidants and Flavor with Spices
(about 1/2 teaspoon of each):
You can add all, or make your own combination of the below. They’ll taste great just the same!
1 tsp ground oregano
1 tsp dried rosemary
1/4 tsp salt
For a different twist, add 1/2 tsp tumeric and cumin
Mix spices together in a bowl.
After blending the spices, mix into the ground beef. Form beef into about 8 bite-sized patties. Cook on the grill or on a frying pan until meat thermometer reads 140 deg.
Once sliders are cooked, move them to a plate and let the meat set for about 10 minutes.
Top each slider with a tablespoon of goat cheese and a bunch of bean sprouts.
MMM!! Gourmet taste, but so simple.. and healthy.
They’re perfectly good without the toppings, and they go well with
