This is one of the items I will be serving at our Labor Day party. They are ooey/gooey delicious. I made mine with smoked beef short ribs; however, you could experiment with other items, and make it your own. All I can say is that they are, so yummy. FYI: Do not forget to bring a lot of napkins. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How To Make beef essentials: ooey/gooey short rib sliders

    I am using beef short ribs that I smoked for 16 hours. There are a lot of ways that you can smoke beef… or you could just bake them in the oven, and shred the beef after they cook. As a matter of fact, you can buy shredded beef from you grocer, or a local BBQ restaurant. It is up to you.

    Here is what my short ribs looked like, after they came out of the smoker.

    If you are in the market for a good homemade BBQ sauce, this is one of my favorites. However, if I am going “store-bought” one of my favorite brands is Sweet Baby Rays.

    Gather your Ingredients (mise en place).
  • 6
    Place a rack in the middle position, and preheat the oven to 300f (150c).
  • 7
    Slice the buns in half.
  • 8
    Chef’s Tip: Since the bottom of the buns are going to have to hold the sauce, make them a bit thicker than the top.
  • 9
    Chef’s Note: These buns came as a group, so I kept them together, and sliced through the middle. After they cook, I will cut them up for serving.
  • 10
    Slather the bottom buns, and then add the pickles. As you can see, I like my sliders sloppy.
  • 11
    Add the parmesan cheese.
  • 12
    Chef’s Note: If you are going to add any additional spices, do it now.
  • 13
    Add the colby or cheddar cheese.
  • 14
    Add the tops, and then brush with the melted butter.
  • 15
    Add to a baking dish, and cover with foil.
  • 16
    Place into the preheated oven, and bake until they are warmed through, and the cheese is melted and gooey, about 30 minutes.
  • 17
  • So yummy
    Slice, and serve while nice and warm, with some coleslaw or other items on the side. Enjoy.
