Ever since White Castle introduced the world to their “sliders,” it really is no surprise that these mini-burgers have since become a hit at any party or picnic. As they say, good things come in small packages, sliders are not only visually appealing as appetizers or finger food, but also easily customizable to suit anyone’s tastes.
For this recipe, I am throwing in an Asian flair by using leftover Asian slaw from my last post and also pork patties seasoned with Chinese five-spice powder. For those who aren’t familiar with five-spice powder, it is a seasoning mixture commonly used in Asian cooking to marinate meats consisting of ground-up cinnamon, cloves, fennel seeds, star anise, and Sichuan peppercorns.
Summer is just right around the corner so hopefully you will get a chance to fire up that grill soon and wow your guests with this recipe. Alternatively you can broil the patties in a conventional oven or fry them in a cast iron skillet. It’s just more fun at an outdoor grill among good company.
So, what’s your favorite meat patty for sliders? Let me know.
