Prep-Ahead Teriyaki Sliders with Broccoli Slaw

Teriyahi Sliders with broccoli slaw, on cutting board ready to eat

These sliders are an Asian-inspired alternative to the traditional game day sliders.  Both the meat and the slaw in these sliders have a rich flavor, so you don't need to add any additional condiments to the burgers.  Great for lunch or dinner, these can easily be made ahead for picnics, potlucks, parties or barbecues!

Teriyaki Burgers

  • 2 lb ground beef
  • 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp sesame oil, optional
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger

Asian Broccoli Slaw

  • 2 1/2 cups julienned broccoli stems
  • 1/4 cup shredded purple cabbage
  • 1/4 cup julienned carrots
  • 1 tbsp mild-tasting oil (canola, vegetable, avocado, etc.)
  • 2 tsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder


  • 12 Hawaiian-style sweet rolls
  • 1 tbsp mild-tasting oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp sesame seeds


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.  Grease a 9x12-in baking pan, then line it with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the ground beef with the teriyaki sauce, honey, sesame oil (if desired), onion powder, garlic powder and ground giner.  Mix well until the spices are fully incorporated.
  3. Press the ground beef mixture into the baking pan.
  4. Bake the beef for 20 minutes, or until the meat is cooked through.
  5. While the meat is cooking, make the broccoli slaw by combining the broccoli, cabbage and carrots in a medium bowl.  Add the oil, vinegar, soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, ginger and garlic powder to a cruet or lidded jar.  Shake well to blend.  Pour dressing over the broccoli slaw and toss to coat well.
  6. When the meat is done cooking, remove it from the oven and brush any oil from the top with a pastry brush or blot it with a paper towel.  Do not turn off the oven.
  7. To make the sliders, cut the rolls in half (separating top and bottom) and place the bottom halves of the rolls in a 9x12-in casserole dish.  Place the meat on top of the rolls.  Spread the broccoli slaw over the meat.  Place the top halves of the rolls over the broccoli slaw.  Baste the tops of the rolls with the oil and sprinkle the sesame seeds over them.
  8. Cover the casserole dish with foil and bake for 15 minutes, or until the sandwiches are heated through.
  9. Cut the sliders along the lines of the rolls and serve.

Storing/Freezing and Reheating

  1. Allow the sliders to cool before storing.  Place them in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  2. To freeze, wrap each slider individually and freeze for up to 1 month.
  3. To reheat a thawed slider, unwrap it, place it on a microwave-safe plate and microwave on high for 20 to 30 seconds.
  4. To reheat a frozen slider, unwrap it, place it on a microwave-safe plate and microwave it at 50 percent power for 2 to 2 1/2 minutes.


You may be able to find a commercially-prepared broccoli slaw mix that contains broccoli, carrots and cabbage already prepared. If so, you can substitute 3 cups of this mix for the individual components called for in the recipe.
