Asian Beef Sliders Recipe

Asian Beef Sliders Recipe

My family loves orange chicken, but we don't eat it often because of the high sodium, fat and calories. These sliders remind us of our favorite takeout, only they're much healthier. —Mindie Hilton, Susanville, California
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup orange marmalade, divided
  • 2 teaspoons Thai chili sauce, divided
  • 1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 2 slices reduced-fat Swiss cheese, quartered
  • 8 slices whole wheat bread, toasted

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine 1/4 cup marmalade and 1 teaspoon chili sauce. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into eight patties. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack.
  • 2. Grill burgers, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 160° and juices run clear. Top with cheese; grill 1-2 minutes longer or until cheese is melted
  • 3. Meanwhile, with a 2-in. round biscuit cutter, cut 16 circles from toasts. In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine remaining marmalade and chili sauce. Microwave for 20 seconds or until heated through.
  • 4. Place burgers on toasts; top with marmalade mixture and remaining toasts. Yield: 4 servings.
