Transform a beef roast along with some sauteed peppers and onions and provolone into these tasty Philly Cheesesteak Sliders.I knew before I even started making these little sandwiches that my husband was going to love them. I would say hamburgers are his meat-wrapped-in-bread meal of choice, but these little Philly Cheesesteak Sliders might just come in at a close second. My kids even loved them. That is, after they picked out the peppers and onions because that’s just what they like to do.

Transform a beef roast along with some sauteed peppers and onions and provolone into these tasty Philly Cheesesteak Sliders.I happened to use my pressure cooker to cook my roast, but if you don’t have one or prefer to start cooking something in the morning and have it ready when you come home after work, the slow cooker is the way to go. Whichever way you cook it, you end up with very tender pieces of meat. Now, I really like using a rump roast because its very lean and there’s literally no fat I have to worry about biting into. The problem with lean meat is that it can taste dry, even when cooked in liquid. That is why I have absolutely no problem using butter for the veggies as well as on the buns. I also loved the way the cooking liquid tasted on the sandwiches when I cooked it down a bit but was still able to preserve all the amazing flavor.

I wasn’t sure if the sour dough taste would be too strong for these sliders, but it actually was wonderful, plus the texture of the bread held up really well with all the liquid and they didn’t fall apart.

They’re easy to make and I guarantee your friends and family will love them!

Recipe type: main
Yields: 16 sliders
Ingredients
  • 1 (2-3 pound) rump roast
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 (1.12 oz) onion dip mix packet
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 yellow onions, sliced thin
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeds removed and sliced thin
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, seeds removed and sliced thin
  • 6 T butter, divided
  • 16 heat-and-serve sour dough rolls
  • 5 ounces sliced provolone
Instructions
  1. Slice roast into thin pieces. This works best if the meet is partially frozen. Combine the meat with the beef broth, onion dip mix, and garlic powder. You can cook the meat by using a pressure cooker or slow cooker. If using the pressure cooker, cook on high pressure for 10 minutes and then allow to naturally release pressure for 10 minutes before quick releasing the remaining pressure. If using the slow cooker, allow to cook on low 5-6 hours. Remove cooked meat from liquid and set aside. Cook liquid over medium heat, uncovered, until reduced by half. Set aside.
  2. Using 2 tablespoons of the butter, saute the onions and peppers over high heat in a large saute pan stirring only occasionally just until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Split the rolls. Melt the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter and spread on open surface of the rolls. Heat in preheated 350 degree F oven for about 10 minutes until they just begin to turn golden. Remove rolls from the oven.
  4. Assemble the sandwiches by layering the meat with the reduced cooking liquid, topped with the sauteed peppers and onions, and finally with the sliced provolone. Cover with tops of rolls and continue cooking in preheated oven until cheese has fully melted, about 10 minutes. Serve warm.

There’s just something about biting into a warm cheesy meat filled roll while you’re watching the game with friends. This is one of those recipes, in my opinion, that is so much better when you cook a whole turkey breast and then slice the meat yourself. I always cook a whole turkey on Thanksgiving and only on Thanksgiving. The turkey breast? That’s a regular staple in our house. Its just so easy to prepare and then we have the meat for our family dinner, to chop up for lunch salads, or for sliders like these.

Making Slow Cooker Turkey Breast with one night's quick meal preparation can provide enough flavorful turkey for several busy weeknight dinners ahead.

There are two ways I like to prepare turkey breast. The first is in the slow cooker, and the photo above is from an older post of mine. For this recipe, I went to Fred Meyer (aka one of my favorite places to shop), bought a frozen turkey breast, can cooked it in my electric pressure cooker. Whichever method you choose, the turkey will turn out moist and tender… its just a matter of preference.

My sliders are super simple and I even bake them up in a disposable aluminum tray for easy transport. Good sliders start with amazingly soft rolls. I picked these potato rolls up from the Fred Meyer bakery.

You can get as creative as you’d like, but I like to split the rolls, use some kind of spread (you can find something tasty in a jar or use something from the olive bar), cover it with those perfectly cooked pieces of turkey breast, and then top it with cheese. I chose provolone for these sliders but you can’t go wrong with so many different varieties.

You’ll notice that my once plain rolls are now covered in poppy seeds and garlic. That, my friends, takes these sliders from good to amazing. Enjoy!

Dinner time is a special time that often gets overlooked in today’s fast paced world. It is a time where you can sit down with your family over a delicious and healthy meal, and chat with one another about their days. Mealtime at the dinner table is something that our family holds sacred. I can’t tell you how many meals I ate while growing up in front of the TV. Now that I’m an adult, one of my biggest pet peeves is seeing kids with their eyes glued to a tablet during family meal time. When we go out to eat, I can’t believe how many parents shove electronics in front of their kids’ faces just so they’ll be quiet instead of engaging with them and enjoying their company. Now that I have kids of my own, I view family dinner as bonding time for all of us. We make each other laugh, talk about out day, and share stories. We created this dinner time ritual where each of us says something we like or shares a good memory about each person at the table, including ourselves. We do this every Friday night before movie night and its become something my kids look forward to every single week.

I like to be creative in the kitchen, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have my go-to standby dinners. We usually have breakfast for dinner at least once a week, and spaghetti with meat sauce is a quick and easy favorite too. For this dinner, I wanted to make something that was easy that I knew my family would love. The meatballs were extra easy to throw together because I used onion dip mix along with some dried basil and oregano to flavor the meat. Easy! To make it extra fun, I stuffed a chunk of mozzarella inside each meatball.

Some of the cheese oozes out when you cook the meatballs. No matter, because it all gets put back into the sliders, and enough usually stays inside to give you a melty gooey treat.

Next comes the assembly process. My pantry is never without a supply of spaghetti sauce. I like to use heat-and-serve rolls. They’re already cooked when you buy them, but they’re meant for you to finish them off in the oven when you get home. I split each roll open and set the tops aside. Then I covered them with my stuffed meatballs. Next, I poured the entire jar of sauce over the meatballs. Then I topped with the remaining mozzarella because one can never have enough melty ooey gooey cheese. Finally, I put the tops of the rolls back on and baked in the hot oven until the rolls were golden brown and the cheese was melted.

This was definitely a dinner that my entire family enjoyed. My son loved it so much that he finished the kale salad I served alongside just so he could have seconds on the meatball sliders!

I make a lot of game day recipes on my blog. Why? Because I have a thorough understanding and appreciation for the importance of having really good game day grub that is not only delicious, but easy to make and can feed a crowd at a good party. You can’t get any easier than this shredded chicken. All you have to do is just add RO*TEL.

For this particular recipe, I ended up using both the HOT diced tomatoes with habaneros as well as the Mexican Lime & Cilantro variety. You’ll find the recipe at the end of this post, but I can pretty much sum it up in one sentence: cook two cans of RO*TEL for every pound of chicken in your slow cooker, shred, and serve. BAM. Easy. I’ve been making chicken like this for years and my entire family loves it. You can then use it in so many different ways to feed  a crowd. Picture you throwing a huge basketball tournament party for a huge group of hungry friends. You make a ton of this shredded chicken. Then, you serve it to your buddies as spicy sliders, on top of nachos, mixed in with your favorite cheesy dip. The possibilities are endless, and you end up being a hero for making such awesome food.

I ended up using this round of chicken for some pretty, if I do say so myself, freaking delicious sliders. I started by making some homemade cornmeal rolls as buns. Just drain off any excess liquid and spoon your shredded chicken on top.

Then I topped it with some citrus cumin vinaigrette coleslaw.

Slap a lid on those bad boys, hold them together with a cute little slider stick, and pass them out to your friends while they’re cheering for their favorite team.  Feed the people who are rooting for your non-favorite team first so that they’ll stuff their face and you’ll only hear cheering when your team scores.

I only ended up using two cans for this particular post because I was only feeding my family, not a group of friends. If you’re wondering what I used the third can for, I made these nachos for my husband. I wasn’t planning on taking a photo because they’re not really blog-worthy nachos (i.e. shredded cheese with a bunch of other toppings layered on to chips and microwaved until melty), but he took one bite and the first thing he said was “mmmm, yummy tomatoes” so I promptly took the plate away from him and snapped a quick picture.
