Spicy Mayonnaise:
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons hot sauce, such as Sriracha 
  • 1 tablespoon salt 
  • 1 tablespoon sugar 
Slider Slaw:
  • 1 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup sugar 
  • 1 tablespoon salt 
  • 2 cups julienned carrots
  • 2 cups julienned daikon radish
  • 1/2 small head red cabbage, shredded 
  • 4 green onions, finely chopped 
  • 1 jalapeno chile, finely chopped 
  • Pinch freshly ground black pepper 
  • 1 sprig cilantro, chopped 
Slider Patty:
  • 1 pound lean ground beef chuck
  • 1 bunch scallions, finely chopped 
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped lemongrass
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 4 tablespoon hoisin sauce 
  • 1 tablespoon sugar 
  • 1 tablespoon salt 
  • 2 drops olive oil
  • 6 Hawaiian-style slider buns or brioche buns 
  • 4 jalapenos, sliced 
  • 1 cucumber, sliced 


For the spicy mayonnaise: Combine the mayonnaise, hot sauce, salt and sugar in a bowl and mix well. Cover the bowl and refrigerate until needed.

For the slider slaw: Combine the vinegar, sugar, and 1 cup of water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and pour the hot liquid over the carrots and daikon in a bowl. Cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Drain the carrots and daikon and combine in a bowl with the cabbage, green onions, jalapeno, pepper and cilantro and 3/4 cup of the spicy mayonnaise. Reserve the remaining mayonnaise. Cover the slaw and refrigerate until ready to serve

Make the slider patties: Combine the beef, scallions, lemongrass, onion, hoisin sauce, sugar and salt together in a mixing bowl and gently mix. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 4 hours and up to overnight.

Put one drop of olive oil on each hand to keep the meat from sticking. Divide the meat into 6 equal portions and shape each portion into a loose ball. Press the balls gently to form patties of the desired shape, 1/2-inch-thick patties are ideal.

Cook the patties on a non-stick flat top griddle over medium-high heat or saute pan until cooked to desired doneness, about 3 minutes per side. Place the buns on the griddle or saute pan and toast to a nice golden brown.

Spread the remaining spicy mayonnaise on both the top and bottom halves of the buns. Add the jalapeno, cucumber, slider patty, and slider slaw.
