5. Slice the sweet rolls in half horizontally, while keeping the 12 pack of buns intact. Add a piece of parchment paper to the cooking sheet then place buns onto a baking sheet.

6. Spread the cooked steak mixture over the bottom half of the buns, evenly.

7. In a small bowl, mix together melted butter and Italian seasoning. Brush butter mixture over the top of the buns.

6. Top with cheese slices and the top half of the buns.

8. Place sliders in the oven and bake for 7 - 10 minutes until cheese is melted and the top of the buns are golden brown. Serve warm.

Hint: For the best steak slider buns, toast them lightly with a brush of melted butter. This not only enhances their flavor but also creates a slight crunch that holds the juicy steak and toppings without getting soggy.

Substitutions to Beef Sliders

When I'm making a recipe, sometime I find that I need to make a few substitutions. With these beef sliders, you are able to make a few subs to make the recipe better.

  • Turkey - For a lighter option, use ground turkey instead of beef. It's leaner and still packed with flavor, especially when seasoned well.
  • Portobello Mushrooms - Go for a vegetarian twist by using large portobello mushroom caps as your "steak." They have a meaty texture and absorb marinades wonderfully, making for a delicious and healthy alternative.

Variations

Every now and again, I like to make a different variation of my favorite recipe. When it comes to these Steak Sliders, here are some of the different variations that our family enjoys.

  • BBQ Steak Sliders: Add a smoky twist by brushing the steak with your favorite BBQ sauce during the last few minutes of cooking. Top with coleslaw for an extra crunch and a burst of flavor.
  • Spicy Steak Sliders: Kick up the heat by seasoning the steak with cayenne pepper and adding sliced jalapeños. Finish with a dollop of spicy mayo for a fiery bite.
  • Mediterranean Steak Sliders: Infuse some Mediterranean flair by topping the steak with crumbled feta cheese and a handful of fresh arugula. Drizzle with a touch of tzatziki sauce for a refreshing finish.

Storage

For storing your steak sliders with Hawaiian rolls, here are some recommendations to maintain its freshness and quality:

  • Refrigeration: Place any leftover steak sliders in an airtight container and store them in the refrigerator. They will stay fresh for up to 3 days. To reheat, simply pop them in the microwave for a quick meal or warm them up in the oven for a crispier texture.
  • Freezing: For longer storage, you can freeze the steak sliders. Wrap each slider individually in plastic wrap or aluminum foil, then place them in a freezer-safe bag or container. They can be stored in the freezer for up to 2 months. To enjoy, thaw in the refrigerator overnight and reheat in the oven until warmed through.

These storage tips should help you enjoy your soup while maximizing its shelf life and maintaining its delicious flavors!

Top tip

Marinate the steak for 30 minutes: For exceptionally juicy and flavorful steak sliders, marinate the steak for at least 30 minutes before cooking.

FAQs about Steak Sliders

Yes, you can prepare the components of steak sliders ahead of time. Cook the steak and sauté the onions and peppers, then store them in the refrigerator. When you're ready to serve, simply reheat the components and assemble the sliders on fresh buns.
