Now that the weather is getting cooler outside, I am more comfortable turning the oven on in the house. The oven opens up so many different cooking possibilities and recipe ideas. Last week Pita Break sent me a bunch of their product to develop some recipes. The kids got so excited when the delivery guy came to the door with a big box full of pita bread, lavash, one buns and more. Looking at their product, I got my ideas flowing and this is the first recipe I want to share with you.
The shredded beef in this slider is similar to pulled pork and packed with flavour with a little heat from the ancho chilies. The fresh cilantro and guacamole add a light fresh counterbalance to the deep rich flavour of the shredded beef.
For these sliders, I used Pita Break’s Just Minis. These are just like their One Bun but smaller and worked just great and tasted delicious!
I used chuck steak as the slow cooking process tenderizes the meat and they shred so easily. This shredded beef could be used in many other things, other than slider buns. Large buns, pita brea and soft tortilla would all work great.
If desired, have a bowlful of the ancho chili sauce that the chuck steak cooked in on the table with the sliders. That way, if people wish, they could spoon a little extra of this sauce with deep flavour on their slider. I know I did that!!
