A Beef Slider Recipe For Feeding A Crowd
There’s so many great slider recipes to make and I’ve tried just about all of them. Classic ham and cheese sliders, turkey sliders, beef sliders, you name it. Take a sandwich recipe and turn it into a slider.
So you know I had to try and make my own version, and I feel like this one tops them all. My favorite part about this slider recipe? A buttery gravy that gets poured on top and baked into these party sliders. You can even use our popular Brown Gravy Recipe to make these beef sliders!
So unbelievably delicious and I have to say, I think I invented this buttery gravy recipe. You might see versions of it other places but you saw it here first!
We love making appetizers that can turn into the main course like these Tex-Mex Sausage Tortilla Rolls. You think you’re just putting them out for appetizers but then you just keep eating until it becomes dinner.
These roast beef sliders are a great example of that – put them out for apps or dinner, you’ll be good either way.
How Do You Make French Dip Sliders?
A key to this french onion slider recipe is a huge amount of caramelized onions. Maybe you think you’re not an onion fan? Well caramelize a whole bunch in butter and then see how you feel.
Cook the onions in a good amount of butter and or olive oil over low heat until the onions cook down and get nice and sweet. It does take a few minutes to accomplish perfect caramelized onions but it’ll be worth the wait.
After your onions are cooked down you can start putting these sliders together. Grab your roast beef (right from the deli counter) and some provolone cheese too while you’re there…
Put these tasty sliders in a glass baking dish and then you can start the gravy.
When I say gravy, I really mean a melted butter sauce that tastes like an amazing buttery, beef gravy.
If you look at a recipe for ham and cheese party sliders they all get topped with a ton of butter and seasonings but since I’m making french dip party sliders I decided to add some beef gravy flavor to the butter.
Grab these powdered gravy packets right at the grocery store. Yep, to answer your question, we use them all the time. Homemade gravy like everything else is always best but sometimes you need a few short cuts.
I can’t even tell you how crazy good these French Dip Party Sliders turned out – you just have to make them and see for yourself! For a party, they’re perfect. For dinner? Perfect.
We probably have to double the recipe next time, which is really easy to do.
