These Steak Sliders with Sweet Black Pepper Onions and Blue Cheese are extreme in flavor. 

Steak and Blue Cheese Sliders

They’re kinda life changing.

I know, I know – I’m perpetually on a slider kick, but these are special. It’s the entire combination of flavors that get me here.

The onions are caramelized in a sauce called Sweet Black Pepper Anytime Sauce  from Stubbs BBQ that’s off the damn charts.

I absolutely love this stuff.

I made the flank steak the way I typically cook my steaks, which is seared on the stove and put in a 500 degree oven for about a minute on each side.

Don’t overcook it, let it rest before you cut it and it will be perfect.

The blue cheese sauce is just, well, it’s literally crack like.

You can use whatever type of buns you have on hand; these are Hawaiian Jalapeno rolls.

It compliments the sweet black pepper sauce and blue cheese beautifully, but feel free to sub other bread if you want.

I think these would be fantastic on ciabatta.

Regular dinner rolls would even work.

You’re gonna want to get every single drop of the blue cheese sauce, I promise.
