Beyond Beef Vegan Sliders
This past Saturday I was scrolling through the stories on my Facebook and I came across Beyond Meat’s story and this recipe popped up. I showed it to Matt and we both wanted to try them THAT NIGHT! They looked so good and who can pass up a good, juicy slider anyways?? These did not disappoint AT ALL and really were quite easy…well, the help from my engineer of a husband was quite nice. 🙂
The first step in this process was to mix up the Beyond Beef with a little salt, pepper, and garlic powder and then press it into an even layer in a 9×13″ baking dish. You bake that for 20 minutes and then set aside. This was where Matt came into play because he had to figure how to cut each patty to size for the slider rolls. This is one of his specialties where I let him show his magic because that just makes me think too hard sometimes when its really not necessary, lol!
Next, you top it with the surprisingly delicious vegan smoked gouda…
Then, top with the caramelized onions (which, by the way, I slow cooked on the stove for almost an hour)
Top with the slider roll tops and brush on the delectable vegan herbed butter sauce and they are ready to go back in the oven for about 10-15 minutes until the rolls are toasted and the cheese has melted and voila!
We baked up some sweet potato fries to go with these beauts and we were good to go! Who needs White Castle sliders when you can make these, much healthier ones in your own home?Print
Beyond Beef Vegan Sliders
Delicious, vegan sliders that even your meat loving friends will enjoy!
- Yield: 18 sliders 1x
- 1.5 lb Beyond Beef
- 18 pack slider rolls
- Follow Your Heart Vegan Smoked Gouda Cheese
- 1 TBL garlic powder
Caramelized Onions –
- 1 TBL vegan butter
- 1 large yellow onion
- 1 TBL coconut sugar
- 1 TBL balsamic vinegar
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tsp fresh thyme
Herbed Butter Sauce –
- 3 TBL vegan butter, melted
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp dried oregano
- 1/4 tsp dried basil
- pinch of salt
- 1 TBL fresh chopped parsley
For the onions –
Cut the onion into thick slices. Over medium low heat, melt the butter in a think bottomed pan (I used my cast iron pan and it was perfect!) Add the onion slices and cook for about 10 minutes until the onion starts to soften. Add just a pinch of salt, and the sugar and then reduce your heat to low and continue to cook them another 30-45 minutes until they get nice and caramelized. Make sure to continue stirring on occasion to evenly cook them. Once they are fully cooked, add the balsamic, thyme and garlic and continue to cook for 3 more minutes.
For the sliders –
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Combine the Beyond Beef with a little salt, pepper and the garlic powder and press firmly into a 9×13 inch baking dish, making sure it is an even layer. Bake for 20 minutes, drain the excess liquid that formed and set aside.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and place the bottoms of the rolls on the parchment paper. Place the Beyond Beef on the rolls, cut to size. Follow with the cheese and the onions and then place the tops of the rolls on the sliders.
In a small bowl, combine the melted butter, garlic, oregano, basil and fresh parsley. Brush mixture over the tops of the rolls.
Bake in the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes until the rolls are toasted and the cheese is melted. Enjoy!
You can tent your sliders while they are cooking if the tops are browning too much.
