Pairs Well With

Makes 12


12 small brioche or ciabatta slider buns

2 cups shredded leftover cooked prime rib

1/2 cups julienne roasted red peppers

24 banana pepper rings

12 sweet sandwich pickles

1 cup crispy fried onions.

12 oz crumbled blue cheese

1/4 cup Dijon mustard

For the Crispy Fried Onions:

1 large onion

1 cup All Purpose flour

1 T cornstarch

oil for frying


Preheat oven to 350F.

Crispy fried onions: Take 1 large onion and quarter it, then cut into thin slices. Toss onion slices into 1 cup of flour with 1 tbsp cornstarch and then heat a pan with 1/2 cup cooking oil. Once the oil is hot, add sliced onions dusting off excess flour before putting it into the hot pan. Cook for about 5 min on high heat stirring constantly until golden brown and crispy. Remove from heat and set on a paper towel to soak off any extra oil.

Heat the shredded prime rib in a pan with a bit of oil till it is hot.

Next place the bun bottoms onto a baking pan and top with 2 oz of prime rib meat followed by a couple of strips of roasted red peppers, 2 sliced banana peppers, and 1 sweet pickle. Add a few crispy onions and top with 1 oz blue cheese. Using a spoon or knife, smear some Dijon mustard on the bottom of the top bun and place it on the top of the slider.

Bake in the oven for about 3 to 5 min or until the bun is slightly crispy and the cheese is melted. Remove from heat and serve.
