Aloha Meatball Sliders


Welcome to day 2 of Super Bowl Week here at Curry and Comfort. We covered wings yesterday, so today it's about the burger.   I can't just do a plain burger for you... so I decided to share these fun Aloha Meatball Sliders.  I love the sweet and tropical flavor of these meatball sliders.  The crushed pineapple in these meatballs give them wonderful texture and the sweet and tangy glaze puts them over the top.  No one will be throwing a flag on the play when it comes to these sliders. 

For the sliders:
1lb lean ground pork
1lb lean ground chicken
1 (20oz) can of crushed pineapple drained well, reserve juice
seasoning salt to taste
2 slices of bread crumbled
2-3 Tbs of ketchup
1/4 cup of diced onion
2 green chilies diced small
black pepper to taste
I clove of grated garlic
1 Tbs of honey or brown sugar
1 egg
red chili flakes (to taste- optional)

Reserved pineapple juice from can
2 Tbs of brown sugar
1 Tbs of rice wine vinegar
1/4 cup of ketchup
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup of sweet chili sauce (like mae ploy egg roll sauce)
2tsp of cornstarch

Mix all meatball slider ingredients together.  Form into meatballs (to the size of your bun).  Brown on all sides in some canola oil on medium heat until they are 80% cooked through.  Add prepared sauce above and simmer until sauce glazed meatballs.   Serve hot on buns with lettuce and sriracha sauce if desired.  Enjoy.
