The big game is this weekend… and that means it's also a day to eat! The gameday table is almost as important as the game. Well, maybe even more important! So as you fill yours, here's a recipe I'd like to share with you. I ran across this last year, and they are so delicious!!!! And since you make the meat in the slowcooker, they are really easy too. Beef, blue cheese and a buttery mayo will make them a favorite at your next party too!
Beef and Blue Cheese Sliders
- 1 2lb beef chuck roast, trimmed of excess fat
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp dried thyme
- 1/4 tsp celery seed
- 1 tsp granulated garlic
- 1 bay leaf
- 1/4 C soy sauce
- 12 white dinner rolls
- 1 C mozzarella cheese, shredded
- 3-5 oz blue cheese crumbles
- 1/4 C mayonnaise
- 2 tsp prepared horseradish
- 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
- 1/2 C butter
- 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tsp poppy seeds
- 2 tsp dehydrated onion
- 1 tsp sugar
- Combine thyme, sugar, celery seed, garlic, and bay leaf and sprinkle over roast in slow-cooker. Pour soy sauce over roast.
- Cook for 4-5 hours on high, or 7-8 hours on low setting. Meat is done when tender and shreds easily.
- Remove meat from slow-cooker and shred.
- Cut dinner rolls in half and lay bottom half of each one on a baking sheet close together. You want the sides of each roll to be touching.
- Place a portion of shredded beef on top of each roll followed by the mozzarella and blue cheeses.
- Combine the mayonnaise with horseradish and pepper, stir to combine and then spread on the bottom side of the top half of each roll.
- Place the roll tops on the cheese and beef to create a sandwich.
- Melt the butter and combine Worcestershire sauce, poppy seeds, onion, and sugar. Pour butter mixture evenly over the rolls.
- Cover baking sheet with foil and bake in a preheated oven at 375 for 10 minutes. Uncover and continue to cook for an additional 5-10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and tops are browned.
