BETTENDORF, Iowa – Everybody loves “sliders”, those little hamburgers that are pint sized for little mouths.
But instead of the traditional hamburgers on a small bun, Chef Brad Scott from Scott Community College’s Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management Center wants to offer an alternative that’s perfect for our area: Pork Sliders.
Instead of ground beef, just buy a three pound pork butt.
“I’ve also got some celery, carrots, green peppers, a little purple onion, and some garlic,” says Chef Scott.
1. Make a bed of carrots, celery, green peppers, and onions into an aluminum foil-lined pan
2. Add a whole garlic
3. Set the pork butt on top
4. Season with black pepper
5. Add kosher salt
6. Add Cajun spice for a nice rub
7. Add two cups root beer
8. Cover with aluminum foil
9. Place into a 350-degree oven for 3 1/2 hours
10. After it cooks, snip the cords and unwrap the pork
11. Cut into 1/2 inch thick slices
12. Chop into small pieces
13. Put about two ounces on each small slider
14. Add barbeque sauce and serve
“This is fun for the kids and the kid in you,” says Chef Scott.
It’s a simple recipe for Pork sliders with a barbeque braise.
