I don't know about you but I struggle with choosing what to fix for dinner. We eat a lot of chicken and after a certain amount of chicken dinners I start looking and thinking of a beef recipe of some kind. I am a rebel like that! When I saw this recipe I thought that my husband would really like it. I don't know what it is about guys and sliders. Since when did men love small sandwiches so much? I thought they were suppose to love big sandwiches like whoppers and big macs. Maybe it's just my husband but if there is a slider on the menu he will most likely order it.
I adapted this recipe to suit our taste and we thought they were delicious. It's an extremely easy meal to throw together. I served ours with Caesar salad and since there are two people in our household we had plenty of leftovers.
I bought the slider buns in the bread section at Kroger. I did not see any at Wal Mart when I checked. I also used a biscuit cutter to cut the provolone cheese into smaller circles so it would fit nicer on the bun. I like my food neat. 🙂
I hope this easy crock pot meal makes a hectic day a little bit easier for you.
