Are you ready to tantalize your taste buds with a mouthwatering French Dip Slider recipe? Look no further! These sliders are made using beef shoulder roast, which is perfect for a stew or braising dish. The best part is that you can use the cooking liquid as a delectable au jus for dipping.
To begin, cut the beef into large chunks, ensuring that they are big enough for shredding later on. Heat up your Instant Pot on the sauté setting and add some oil. Season the beef with salt and pepper, then sear the chunks in batches to achieve a flavorful crust.
Next, sauté onions, garlic, and thyme in the Instant Pot until softened and slightly browned. Deglaze the pot with beef stock, allowing the liquid to warm up and incorporate the flavors. Return the seared beef to the pot, cover with the lid, and pressure cook for 35 minutes.
While the beef is cooking, prepare the buns for the sliders. Cut the buns in half and layer slices of provolone cheese on the bottom half. Place the top half of the buns on a baking sheet, brush with melted butter, and sprinkle with coarse salt for a crunchy topping.
Once the beef is done cooking, shred it using two forks and pile it onto the provolone-covered buns. Place the sliders in the oven to melt the cheese and achieve a golden-brown finish.
Now it’s time to make the au jus! Reduce the cooking liquid in the Instant Pot until it thickens slightly. Strain the liquid to remove any impurities and excess fat.
Finally, assemble your French Dip Sliders and serve them with the freshly made au jus. Dip away and savor the combination of tender beef, gooey cheese, and savory bread.
This recipe is perfect for parties, as it allows you to prep the sliders in advance and bake them just before serving. The cooking time is minimal, thanks to the Instant Pot, so you can spend more time enjoying the festivities.
So, gather your friends, grab a plateful of these sliders, and get ready for an explosion of flavors. Your taste buds will thank you!
