STERLING SILVER® SPICY JALAPEÑO SLIDERS

DIFFICULTY LEVEL: Beginner

SERVINGS:

8 portions of 2 ounces each

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 pound Sterling Silver® ground beef, divided into eight 2-ounce portions
  • One 10-ounce jar jalapeño jelly
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil

Instructions

  1. Heat the jalapeño jelly in the microwave or on the stove over low heat until melted. Set aside until needed.

  3. Season patties lightly with salt and pepper.
  4. Heat the oil in a large sauté pan until almost smoking. Add the patties, in batches if necessary, and cook to an internal temperature of 160°F, about 6 minutes.

  6. Drizzle about 2 teaspoons of jalapeño jelly over the patty. Sprinkle with crispy jalapenos. Close the sandwich and add a toothpick if desired.
