Ray’s Steakhouse Sliders are the perfect quick meal for a party

In the Food Network video for this recipe, Rachael Ray calls this appetizer “Almost too cute to eat. Almost.”

The television cook uses a pizza cutter to simplify cutting the cooked meat into 24 “little baby burgers” once they’re out of the oven. Her tangy “special sauce” includes grainy mustard and steak sauce. With arugula, sliced tomatoes, red onion, and bacon topping them off, these sliders are satisfying snacks.

Food Network reviewers said of the recipe, “Great recipe! It was great because it did not take a lot of work and I did not have to miss any football to prepare/get the meal ready” and “YUMMY! Used 1 lb of beef and it was perfect for a fast weeknight dinner! LOVE IT!”
