Sometimes you get into the strangest conversations/arguments with your spouse, best friend, significant other, etc.  I’m talking about those conversations where you stop and say, “How did we get to talking about this!?”  Well, Laura and I had one of those the other day.  And you’ll never guess what it was about.  Fritos.  And dog feet.

I truthfully can’t even remember what started the conversation, but I made a comment about how dog’s paws sometimes smell like Fritos.  Laura looked at me like I had 4 noses and 3 eyes.  What?  They do!  She promptly went on to tell me that I was absolutely crazy.  Now I’ll admit that sometimes I might be a little nuts.  But this time?  Not so much.  I stuck by my guns.  Dogs feet do smell like Fritos sometimes.  We agreed to disagree, and that was the end of the conversation.

Later that night, vindication arrived in the form of Facebook.  (I swear Facebook listens to our conversations!)  Sure enough, a Huffington Post article came across Laura’s feed entitled…wait for it…“This Is Why Your Dog’s Paws Smell Like Fritos.”  It turns out that smell of corn chips (i.e. Fritos) is a byproduct of yeast and bacteria.  There’s a natural bacteria found in the ground that dogs pick up on their paws.  That’s the source of the smell.  And now you know.  (And for the record, I was totally right!)

Let’s switch gears over to today’s recipe – and, no, it doesn’t involve Fritos.  Although a handful of corn chips would totally taste delicious next to a couple of these Beef Brisket Sliders!  One of my favorite things to do in the summer and fall is smoke a brisket.  (If you like to smoke meats, then check out the new toy I got myself [aff. link].  This digital thermometer has 4 different probes so you can keep track of different meats at the same time.  Oh, and it’s wireless!  You can set the remote next to you to keep an eye on all 4 temperatures.  Truthfully, I typically only use 2 probes at a time…but still.)

Back to the smoked brisket!  Since I enjoy smoking brisket, that means we always have packs of frozen smoked beef brisket in our freezer.  One of those packs came out recently and promptly turned into these Beef Brisket Sliders.  Surprisingly enough, the inspiration for these sliders came from a pizza.  Last fall, I made a pizza using Alabama White BBQ Sauce.  It was delicious!  That pizza used chicken, but I knew the sauce would work with all sorts of meat.  It took a while, but I finally got around to using Alabama White BBQ Sauce with smoked beef brisket.  The combination?  Delicious!

I also topped these sliders with a handful of caramelized onions for extra flavor.  All together, these Beef Brisket Sliders were a huge hit for dinner.  They’d be great for a party with friends, too!  There’s a ton of flavor packed into these small sliders.  I hope you enjoy these sliders as much as we do!

Ingredients

For the Caramelized Onions

  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 large yellow onions cut into ¼” slices
  • ½ tsp sugar
  • ½ tsp salt

For the Alabama-style White BBQ Sauce

  • cup mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • ½ Tbsp spicy brown mustard
  • 1 tsp prepared horseradish
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • ½ tsp minced garlic
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper

For the Sliders

  • 1 12-pack pull-apart dinner rolls
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • ½ Tbsp spicy brown mustard
  • 16 oz. fully-cooked beef brisket

Instructions

For the Caramelized Onions

  • Using a large skillet, add butter and olive oil. Place over medium heat until butter melts.
  • Add onions; cook, stirring occasionally, for 5-7 minutes, or until onions begin to soften.
  • Add sugar and salt; reduce heat to medium-low and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, for 10-15 more minutes, or until onions have softened and turned light golden brown. (Note: If the onions begin to scorch or stick to the bottom of the pan, turn the heat down. The secret to caramelized onions is low and slow!)

For the Alabama-style White BBQ Sauce

  • Using a small bowl, add all of the ingredients for the BBQ sauce; whisk together until well combined. Set sauce aside.

For the Sliders

  • Using a small bowl, whisk together melted butter and Dijon mustard.
  • Brush the melted butter mixture onto the bottom side of each of the top buns.
  • Place rolls butter-side down in a large frying pan or griddle. Place over medium heat and cook until butter has fully melted and bottom of rolls have turned golden brown.
  • To make sliders, place bottom (untoasted) half of bun on countertop. Add several slices of fully-cooked smoked brisket, a spoonful of white sauce and a handful of caramelized onions. Top with lightly toasted buns.

Everything is better with caramelized onions, right? Also, this Alabama BBQ sauce sounds very intriguing – never tried this combination in a condiments.

    Summer is defintiely right at your corner, here in NZ it is freezing cold at the moment. Those sliders looks perfect, definitely gave me the spirit of summer.

    1. Ah, I totally understand where you’re coming from, Raymund! Our winters are long here, and it does provide some enjoyment to look at summer food on a cold winter day. Hang on to this recipe for warmer days – it’s quite delicious!

  5. I’ve seen recipes for Alabama bbq sauce before, and maybe yours was one of them, but once when I was perusing sauces on amazon, I saw one and bought it! I like how you used it here. Do you serve the sauce warm or at room temperature?

    1. Alabama BBQ sauce is different – but boy is it tasty! I have shared a pizza before using Alabama BBQ sauce (sometimes called Alabama White Sauce), so it may have been that post that you are remembering. Either way, I serve the sauce at room temperature. It might be fine if you warm it a bit, though – I’ve never tried! Let me know how the version that you got on Amazon is? Thanks, Mimi!
