Saturdays I get up early and buy meat from here. It just so happens that after one of my meat hauls, I felt it necessary to drop by here to pick up a few croissants and surprise Round Eye, so we could have a little brekky in bed.
Propped up on the glass counter (above the chocolate eclairs and the salted chocolate tart) were a basket full of mini slider buns. Round mini and broich-ey, with a flutter of sesame seeds on top. They we’re calling my name, asking to be be bought. As I ordered, the sliders just roll off my tongue… two croissants, two chocolate croissants and four slider buns please – and that was it. I hadn’t even prepped or thought up a recipe to go in them yet.
Luckily enough that day I had planned to shoot two recipes; the spotty heirloom carrot pickle recipe and the spicy beef stir fry. Rather than make my life hard I did a little recipe reshuffle of the two recipes. Because I had a three hour window to shoot before a mad dash to two blogger events. So, that’s how this slider came about – a combination of two recipes piled together with a little extra herbage. Simple.
SPICY BEEF AND CARROT PICKLE SLIDERS
