  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 6 ounces fresh (or frozen) raspberries
  • 4 tablespoons honey

Raspberry Chipotle Mozzarella Sirloin Sliders Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, add the ingredients for the Raspberry Chipotle sauce. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and let simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or until the juices from the raspberries release, start to break down, and the sauce reduces by half. Set aside to let cool slightly but keep warm.
  2. Add the sirloin, salt, pepper, and garlic powder to a bowl. Mix well. Shape into eight slider buns. Grill or cook on the grill or in a grill pan at 375 degrees until the desired doneness, 5 – 10 minutes.
  3. To serve, place a burger patty on the bottom of each bun and top with mozzarella, raspberry chipotle sauce, bacon, and arugula.
  4. Serve immediately.
