BBQ Beef Sliders with Sesame Slaw
- For Brisket:
- 1 4- lb beef brisket, trimmed 2 packages (1.6 oz each) slow cooker BBQ pulled pork seasoning 1 bottle (18- oz) barbecue sauce 1 cup unsweetened natural applesauce 1 cup apple cider 1 Tbsp prepared horseradish 1 Tbsp chopped garlic 1 Tbsp ginger spice blend
- For Coleslaw:
- 1 bag (16- oz) tri-color cole slaw mix ¾ cup slaw dressing 2 Tbsp sesame seeds, toasted 36 dinner rolls, split almost all the way through
For brisket, rub the brisket with both packages of pulled pork seasoning; set aside. In a 6-quart slow cooker, stir together barbecue sauce, applesauce, apple cider, horseradish, garlic, and ginger until combined. Add brisket, turning several times to coat. (If necessary, cut brisket to fit.)
Cover and cook on Low heat setting for 8 to 10 hours.
Transfer brisket to a platter; let rest for 10 minutes. Pour cooking liquid into a medium saucepan; simmer over medium heat until sauce is reduced by at least half and is syrupy. Taste sauce for seasoning, adding salt, pepper, or more horseradish. While sauce is reducing, use two forks to shred brisket. Toss brisket with the sauce.
For coleslaw, in a medium bowl, toss the coleslaw mix with slaw dressing and sesame seeds. Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day.
To serve, open a dinner roll and put some shredded brisket on it. Top the brisket with a heaping forkful of coleslaw. Serve immediately.
