Beef Sliders with Balsamic Onions

Delicious sliders perfect for game day, tailgating or just dinner
Servings 12 each


  • 1 large red onion very thinly sliced into rounds
  • 3 tbls MTOO Black Cherry Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp MTOO Spicy Caribbean Chicken Rub
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp MTOO Lemon Herbs Seasoning
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 2 tbsp MTOO Gremolata Olive Oil
  • 2 lbs ground beef 80/20
  • 1 tbsp MTOO Mushroom Sage Olive Oil
  • 4 oz Gruyere shredded
  • 12 slider buns


  • Toss onion with vinegar, sugar, and a pinch of salt in a medium bowl and let sit, squeezing onions occasionally to soften slightly and mellow flavor.
  • Make the aioli by whisking the mayonnaise, lemon herbs seasoning, gremolata oil and lemon juice in a medium bowl until well combined. Set aside.
  • Divide meat into 12 portions (about 3 oz. each). Place 1 portion on a work surface. Gently shape into ¾" thick patties. Season both sides with salt and pepper.
  • Heat mushroom sage olive oil in a cast iron pan or grill pan on medium-high heat. Grill patties until lightly charred on bottom, about 3 minutes. Flip and top with a cheese. Grill to desired doneness (cheese should be melted), about 3 minutes for medium-rare. Transfer patties to a cutting board and let rest 5 minutes.
  • While patties are resting, grill the buns, cut side down, until lightly charred around the edges, about 30 seconds.
  • Build sliders with patties, buns, onions, and aioli.
