Spicy Whiskey BBQ Sliders (my way) {Find it, Make it}

Hi. I love to search out new recipes and try new things. As I find them in magazines, on blogs, and various other places, I will make them and let you know how they turn out. I will also give you any tips to make it easier or offer suggestions on how I changed the recipe to better suit me and my family. Check back frequently for new recipe ideas.  Take a look at the other recipes in the {Find it, Make it} series or enjoy the other posts on Julie’s blog. – Amanda

I found this recipe on Pioneer Woman’s blog under the ‘cooking” tab. You can view the step by step process here http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2011/12/spicy-whiskey-bbq-sliders/. It is also listed on her Tasty Kitchen site.

I altered this recipe to make it a bit more figure friendly…we’ve got to stick to those New Year’s resolutions right?

I used ground, 99% fat free turkey breast instead of beef and I made this as a loose meat sandwich like Sloppy Joe’s instead of as sliders.

I only used one pound of meat, but I kept the same measurements for the sauce and it just coated the meat and wasn’t too saucy.

Here is the recipe with my adjustment.  You can see P Dubs recipe with all the step-by-step photos here.

Spicy Whiskey BBQ Sliders (My Way)

1 pound Ground 99% Fat Free Turkey Breast
Salt And Pepper
4 Tablespoons Butter
1 whole Large Onion, Diced
1/2 cup Whiskey
1 cup Barbecue Sauce
1/4 cup Jarred Jalapeno Slices (more To Taste)

Brown the meat in a skillet until cooked through.  Remove and set aside.  Add butter to the same pan and saute onions until golden and tender.  De-glaze the pan with the Whiskey being sure to stir in all the little brown bits on the pan.  Add the remaining ingredients and cook through until warm.  Return the browned meat to the pan, toss with the sauce and bring to temperature.  Serve on your favorite buns.

It was delicious!!! And I didn’t miss the beef. It was a little spicy so you might want to go easy on the peppers and add more to your taste at the end.

We made homemade baked potato chips to go along side. I had two new gadgets I got for Christmas that I wanted to use…a mandolin slicer and a olive oil sprayer. We cut a russet potato thin with the slicer, coated the tops with olive oil and placed them in the microwave on parchment (also sprayed with oil) for about 7-8 minutes until you just start to see them browning..watch closely!! Sprinkle with salt.

Good luck to you all in the New Year and I hope you have some fun in the kitchen along the way. For example, I cooked this dinner without pants on as I dumped jalapeno juice all over mine while trying to open the jar. My kids got a kick out of that!!

From my searches to your dishes. Enjoy!
