Grilled Chinese 5-spice Pork Sliders Recipe

Makes 8-10 patties


8-10 slider buns
Grilled 5-spice pork patties
Asian slaw, or other toppings of your choice
Spicy yogurt dressing

Grilled Chinese 5-spice Pork:

1 lb ground pork
1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
3 tablespoons honey or sugar
2 teaspoons fish sauce
1 teaspoon Chinese 5-spice powder
3 dash of ground white pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons water

Spicy Yogurt Dressing:

1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt or low-fat mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1-2 tablespoon chili sauce or Siracha
Salt and pepper to taste


1. In a bowl, mix all the pork patties ingredients well. Set aside and marinade for an hour.
2. Make oversize golf balls, which would yield about 2-inches in diameter of pork patties. Set aside until ready to grill.
3. Prepare the Asian Slaw, or your choice of toppings.
4. Make the Spicy Yogurt Dressing. Whisk together all the ingredients, adjust salt, pepper and other seasonings as per taste. Set aside to chill until ready to use.
5. Preheat oven broiler/grill to High heat. When the grill pan is smoky hot, brush a little oil over it, arrange the pork patties onto the pan, and grill for 5-7 minutes per side, or until the patties are nicely charred and cooked through. Remove from oven and prepare to assemble the sliders. If you prefer, cut each patty into half, like I did here.
6. Spread the Spicy Yogurt onto the buns. Arrange 2 halves of the split pork patty for each slider bun. Top it with the Asian Slaw, or your choice of toppings and gently press the top half of the bun over the slaw. Ready to serve.

  1. What is your favorite meat for the patty? Pork? Chicken? Beef? Turkey? Let me know your thoughts.

    Love sliders. Good idea about using 5-spice powder to make the pork patties.

  5. These sliders look very succulent and delicious. Thank you for sharing the recipe with us.

  6. What is the purpose of adding baking powder to the meat?

    • Rasa Malaysia says:

      Personally, I find that adding baking powder to meat, especially ground meat that is lean, will help to produce a light, pleasing ‘bouncy’ texture.

    One HEAD of garlic? Looks like a bit much, but I’m game to try.

    Your site will let me download one of your.jpgs to go with the recipe — at work (where I have Windows 7). But at home (where I still have XP) those same .jpgs will not open up. They only open up to be a tiny black dot. Even if I download them directly from your site to XP, bypassing Windows 7 completely, they still do the same thing. So if I download it at work and bring it home, or download it directly at home, they do the same thing.I haven’t had this problem anywhere else. Do you know what might be different about your site? It’s a little discouraging.

    I think I might have to figure out how to make this a pulled pork style slider….. mmmmm?

    • janmaus says:

      Put the seasonings in a sauce and soak the shredded port. I personally don’t think the patties can be improved on!!! After my earlier concern about the amount of garlic, I did them with 15 cloves of roasted garlic and they were absolutely wonderful.

    Looks awesome. I’m gonna try this out very soon!

    Can’t wait to try,just wanted to know if when topping the slider with Asian slaw, do you also top with the spicy soy sesame sauce that is in the recipe or just the yogurt sauce in the slider recipe recipe?

    Also what is a good substitute for the almond biter? Walnut oil?

    • Rasa Malaysia says:

      Nothing extra to top the Asian slaw, since its already tossed in spicy soy sesame sauce. As for the yogurt spread, you use it on the buns alone. Then again, go crazy with them and if you like more sauce/spread, go ahead, whichever way you like.

      You can use peanut butter, or walnut butter, even cashew butter, if you like. It’s your preference.

  15. Richard says:

    Slider buns?? Can’t even find hamburger buns in China! Nor can I find muffin tins, bread loaf pans or cream! For that matter , no ovens either! Had to buy the largest toaster oven I could find and it does take a 13 lbs turkey. But no toasting pans! Since no bread loaf pans, I make French bread. Chinese bread is extremely sweet.
