Honey Mustard Pork-chop sliders

Sliders, a favorite appetizer or small meal that can be made for lunch or dinner. This came about one day at lunch. If you have a bit of time during the afternoon, like I do, than this makes a great decent sized lunch, you could probably make it for yourself and pack it for lunch at work but I am not sure how it would taste heated up in a microwave (toaster oven it’s a whole other story), so if you don’t have a lot of time during the lunch hour because you are stuck at the office I would make this for a summer bbq, small get together or even dinner. This recipe makes 6 total sliders.  

We are going to start by taking sometime to talk about the pork. I used thin cut pork-chops that I bought at a small local grocery store that has the best meat in my area (well besides the butchers). I am a really picky person when it comes to the meat that I buy and well this store has it all. I originally wanted the normal cut chops, but they didn’t have any so thin cut will have to do.

Next we will talk about the honey-mustard that I use. It is as close to homemade (from scratch)as I was getting. Ingredients used for it were 1/2 cup of mayo, 1/4 honey, 1/4 cup yellow mustard, a dash of cayenne pepper and salt and 1 Tbsp vinegar (optional for more of a salad dressing). Mix all those together and wa-la magically delicious honey mustard.

Ok now that I have gotten that out of the way let us begin with making these awesome little sliders…..so what all are you going to need?

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 Hoagie buns–purchased at the deli/bakery (I cut one into thirds. I also use hoagies instead of a slider bun because 1. that is all i had and 2. i like the taste better)
  • 2 thin cut pork chops, cut into thirds
  • lettuce, enough for 6 sliders
  • honey mustard (made or store bought)
  • sliced cheese (whatever kind you like, I used a pepperjack made with ghost peppers)
  • egg + 2 Tbsp water + 2 Tbsp hot sauce  (for egg wash)
  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch + 1/4 cup flour + salt and pepper + garlic, onion powder + 1/2 cup water (for batter)
  • oil for frying

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Take your cut pork chops and throw them into the egg wash, let them sit for about 5-10 minutes. Once they have soaked in the egg wash throw them into the batter and let them sit for about the same amount of time.**Mix up the chops at least one time during each of  the soaking periods** During this time heat the oil for frying and cut the hoagies (if you haven’t already done that) also get the cheese and lettuce ready.
  2. When your oil is ready for frying, take the pork and put into oil. Fry them on each side for approximately 7 minutes or until golden brown.
  3. While you are frying, turn your oven (or toaster oven) to broil. Take the hoagies on a baking sheet and add the sliced cheese. Put into broiler and broil just until the cheese starts to melt.
  4. Once the pork is done, let them drain any excess oil off on a paper towel and then put together your slider with the broiled hoagie and cheese, then the honey mustard and lettuce and then the pork.

And that is it. A delicious little treat that will have your mouth watering (even while you cook) and begging you for more when they are all devoured! And if you make this for a summer bbq or whatever kind of party you end up having, your guests will be begging for this recipe!

*I did take pictures of these little sliders, but they accidently got deleted, so the next time I make these, I will update you all with pictures!*

Thanks for reading and I do hope you try this one out and let me know what you think about it. Until next time. CHAO!     —-Whitness
