20--- Cheesesteak Sliders with Garlic Sriracha Aioli

I now interrupt this very tasty very healthy run of 80s to bring you not ONE but TWO fantastic 20s, just in time for Super Bowl.  Both are excellent additions to your manly food menus.

These are cheesesteak sliders.  Nuff said.

Cheesesteak Sliders
Serves 12

12 white rolls
12 oz thinly sliced beef chuck, sliced into 1" strips (I purchased the nitrate-free type from my grocer's deli)
4 cups beef broth
1/2 lb thinly sliced provolone cheese
1 large white onion, chopped finely
1/2 cup banana pepper slices
1/4 cup butter
1 Tbsp brown sugar
Salt & Pepper

1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tsp Sriracha hot sauce
1 tsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp garlic powder

In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat.  Add onions and saute until lightly browned.  Reduce heat to medium and stir in brown sugar and banana pepper slices.  Continue to saute for 15 minutes, until caramelized.  Remove from heat and set aside.

While onions cook, heat beef broth to a low boil in a medium saucepan.  Reduce heat to low, then add sliced beef.  Allow to heat through.

Preheat oven to a low broil.  Slice rolls in half and place top halves cut side up onto a baking sheet.  Spread a spoonful of onion mixture onto each top, then place a small slice of cheese onto onion mixture.  Place baking sheet into oven for ~5 minutes, until cheese is melted.

While rolls are baking, whisk together aioli ingredients.  Spread 2 tsp aioli onto the bottom half of each roll.  Layer ~1 oz sliced beef (from broth) on top of aioli.  Top with a cheesy roll top half and serve!

Stay tuned for Super Bowl 20 recipe numero dos on Tuesday!!
