Asian Pork Sliders

Sometimes making a food connection takes a strange route. I love won ton soup, especially the actual won tons. Won tons are Chinese dumplings, usually filled with ground pork, minced vegetables and spices. I also love sliders, those miniature sandwiches that are so popular these days. I wanted to put the flavors of won tons into a bite-sized sandwich from the grill.

My kids and friends loved these sliders when I served them at a recent dinner party. There wasn’t a single speck left at the end of the night.

This is a crowd-sized recipe – perfect for a party! If you have trouble finding slider buns, Hawaiian rolls work just as well. You could also serve them in mini pita breads.

Adjust the Sriracha to your liking – add more if you are a fan of heat.
