Teriyaki Beef Sliders with Grilled Pineapple Coleslaw {+ a GIVEAWAY}

Teriyaki Sliders with Grilled Pineapple Coleslaw

I’m a sucker for anything that uses the H-word. You know. Hawaiian. King’s Hawaiian Sweet Bread company is no exception. But I’m not a fan for that reason alone. I’ve always loved sweet bread. It’s perfect for everything from french toast and PB&Js to burgers. And speaking of burgers, I made Teriyaki Beef Sliders topped with homemade Grilled Pineapple Coleslaw for some friends the other night. The consensus? Total taste sensation. I’d like to take full credit for this recipe, but I’ve gotta give credit where it’s due. And in this case, the ingredients spoke for themselves. The teriyaki-marinated beef is such a drool-worthy combination on it’s own; but it’s only enhanced when smothered in in the tropical ‘slaw.

You may have noticed that I’ve been on a grilled pineapple kick all summer. Why, you ask? Because it’s SOOO GOOD. I’m not normally a huge coleslaw fan, but the pineapple adds a perfect tangy crunch and an unexpected smokiness to these juicy sliders. Besides the pineapple, this is far from your typical coleslaw recipe. I incorporated some unusual ingredients like greek yogurt and rice wine vinegar. And it works.

Last but not least – the sweetness of the soft King’s Hawaiian sweet rolls in lieu of traditional buns totally compliments the savory marinated beef and smokey-tangy coleslaw. I don’t know what it is about bite-sized food, but people go crazy for it! Sliders are no exception. And these ones are, literally, finger lickin’ good.

Ingredients
1 lb ground beef
1 package of 12 Kings Hawaiian sweet rolls

Burger Instructions
Divide the ground beef into 12 sections. Roll each section into a ball with your palm, and flatten slightly into thick patties. Place the 12 patties into a baking dish and cover with teriyaki sauce. Cover, refrigerate and let sit for up to 24 hours. When you’re ready, preheat your grill to medium-high and cook burgers for 4-6 minutes on each slide.
While the patties are cooking, slice the rolls open and place a large scoop of Pineapple Coleslaw into top bun. Then top with cooked patty, and enjoy!

    This pineapple coleslaw is delicious! The grilled pineapple is so sweet and is a perfect compliment to the vinegar taste.

  3. How adorable are sliders? I love Hawaiian bread, I don’t know why I would ever pick regular buns over Hawaiian bread sliders. In this case, the fact it comes with the pineapple slaw and teriyaki beef burger really makes the whole tropical theme complete- well, maybe have to throw in one of your tropical drinks with an umbrella straw!
