Beijing Beef Sliders with Broccoli Slaw Topping

Grumpy and I love The Steamy Kitchen Cookbook's Beijing Beef recipe.  I had been thinking for a while how flavorful a burger would be made with the sauce for the recipe mixed into ground beef.  Then, I happened to notice that Price Chopper Supermarkets was sponsoring a Burger contest on their Facebook page.  I thought "why not?"  Whether I win or not, I wanted to create this burger anyway, so I entered it and if I were to win, well that would make me happy.  If I don't win, I will still be happy because I found a flavorful new way to make a burger!

As I thought about creating this burger, I knew that just regular ketchup, mayo, pickles would not be right for a topping.  It needed something with some vegetable and some crunch.  I wasn't sure about mayonnaise, but I sampled a little of my burger sauce mixed into the mayo and I knew that it was going to work.  I went with broccoli slaw with the mayo flavored with some of the beijing beef sauce ingredients.  I loved this slider!   The recipe is made for the BBQ Grill using the Cuisinart Nonstick Slider Grill Basket but you can also use the George Foreman Mini-Burger Slider Insert (which I have and love for rainy days!)

The burgers are moist, flavorful and 2 are a serving.  Yes, just two.  Restaurants overserve everything and when they give you 4 sliders as a serving, they are giving you way more than you need.  I made due with just one burger and an ear of corn, some sugarfree icecream sandwiched between a large graham cracker (broke in half) and still managed to stay under 500 calories for my dinner.  It would be just slightly over 500 calories for two of these burgers.
