beef jerky burger sliders


  • 3/4 pound Ground Beef (93% lean or leaner)
  • 4 ounces beef jerky, 1/4-inch cubes
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 slices Colby-Jack cheese, cut into 8 pieces
  • 8 slider hamburger buns
  • 3 tablespoons prepared garlic mayonnaise
  • 2 cups loosely packed mixed salad greens
  • 8 slices tomatoes


  1. Combine Ground Beef, jerky, salt and pepper; mix until just incorporated. Do not over mix. Divide mixture into 8 equal balls. Press into slider patties, about 2-1/2 inches in diameter.
  2. Place patties on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 8 to 10 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, covered, 9 to 11 minutes) until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally. Top each slider with cheese; cook until cheese is just melted.

    Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed Ground Beef. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.

  3. Spread mayonnaise on bottom of each bun. Top mayonnaise with salad greens, tomato, burger patty. Close sandwiches.
