Phillip’s Beef and Pork Sliders with Fried Green Tomatoes

Meet my brother, Phillip.

Ok, fine, he goes by Phil. Or Phil Mann.

You met him before when we made this beef tenderloin, but you might not remember because it was a couple of years ago. He’s a musician and loves the shit out of food.

And cooking.

When my brother is over, we have priorities. We figure out what our next meal is…or, as Phillip puts it,

“What the fuck do y’all want to eat?”.

He means it in the sweetest way. I pinky promise.

Can’t you tell by the tattoos and Jagermeister shirt?

This is a slider made with both beef and pork. We grind both meats in my meat grinder, add the seasonings and let it sit in the fridge for a while so the meat and spices could marry eachother.

Keep in mind you don’t have to grind your meat – you can buy it already ground up at Publix and it will work out fine.

We apparently like to make things complicated.

Phillip’s Beef and Pork Sliders

Instructions

  • Meanwhile - mix flour, cornmeal and seasoned salt together.

And add plenty of mayo on the bottom half of bun.

Oh, and I added hot sauce.

  2. Hi, the sliders really do sound yummy. I hope you won’t be offended, but I ask that you please don’t link posts that have the f word. I don’t know why, but that has always bothered me. Never been a cursing person. I know you don’t mean it rude. Please don’t take this personal. Just have to stand up for what I believe!
