These Beef and Pork Sliders with Fried Green Tomatoes are not typical burger sliders. They are huge in flavor and texture. Both beef and pork combine to make a juicy burger – you get full on umami, a little bit of spiciness (but not too much), crunchy and a little freshness from the fried green tomato, and a little nuttiness from the Gouda. You will most definitely have more than one.
Meet my brother, Phillip.
Ok, really 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 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?
Let’s Make Beef and Pork Sliders with Fried Green Tomatoes
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 each other.
Keep in mind you don’t have to grind your meat – you can buy it already ground at Publix and it will work out just fine.
We apparently like to make things complicated.
Not really – we both love to do things from scratch and take our time doing it.
What’s the point in rushing through preparing and cooking a meal, sitting down and eating and then – that’s it.
So not fun. I do realize there are people out there (and you may be one of them; I do not judge at all) that have no desire to spend hours in the kitchen playing and experimenting.
They just want the end result.
And not in 6 hours from the time I start making it.
BTW – do NOT skip the tomatoes.
And add plenty of mayo on the bottom half of bun.
Oh, and I added hot sauce.
Here’s your printable –

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!

I’ve made several burgers this summer but non quite like this one, the combination of beef, pork and the olives got me! I don’t recall having fried green tomatoes before but there is always a first time right! I came over to visit you and Phil’s burger from the ladies only get together!
