1 pounds Angus Ground Round

1 tablespoons Angus Ground Chunk

4 ounces Jalapeno pepper-Jack cheese

1 tablespoons salt

1 tablespoons pepper

1 tablespoons olive/vegetable oil

1 tablespoons garlic powder

1 Pack Slider Buns

1 stick of butter

4 onions

6 romaine lettuce leaves

6 campari tomatoes

3 pineapples

1 cup mayonnaie

1.5 tablespoons cumin

1 teaspoons garlic minced


Step 1 - Preparation

Oil and preheat grill at medium high temperature. Cut onions, tomatoes and lettuce to prepare them to be placed on sliders. Prepare aioli: Add mayo, cumin and minced garlic into blender. Pluse quickly making sure not to blend. Put in small container.

Step 2

Turn grill down. Mix ground round and ground chuck with salt, pepper, garlic and oil.

Step 3

Cut cheese into 12 equally-sized cubes.

Step 4

Split meat into 12 equal portions. Then tightly wrap each meat potion over each cheese cube.

Step 5

Place prepared sliders on indirect heat for 10-15 minutes, flipping every 3-5 minutes until mostly cooked. Then, move sliders over direct heat and grill for an additional 5-10 minutes, flipping every 2-3 minutes to finish cooking.

Step 6

Butter slider buns and place on grill over low-medium direct-heat. Remove buns and put a small amount of aioli on top and bottom buns.

Step 7

Cut three pieces of pineapples in half, leaving the bottom halves as bases. Place two skewers in each pineapple bottom. Build slider on skewer.
