In a previous blog post, I began to extol the virtues of the Craftsy platform. I first found it while searching for a bread workshop with Peter Reinhardt. Well, after having such a positive experience with Peter's class, I decided to take another one. This time I tried Nancie McDermott's Everyday Thai Cooking.
One of her lessons included instructions on how to make Beef Sliders with a Thai sweet and spicy sauce. Her burgers looked lovely, but her buns were store bought. So I decided to make my own.
For the buns, I used Peter Reinhardt's Sandwich Bread recipe and shaped the dough into slider-sized rolls. I then brushed them with an egg wash and topped them with sesame seeds.
For the sliders, I decided to change things up a bit and use lamb instead of beef. I don't want to post Nancie's recipe without permission, so please take her class to gain access to it. The burgers, the cilantro pesto (mixed into the burgers) and the absolutely amazing Thai sweet and spicy sauce are all included in the class materials.
It's definitely worth it. These sliders were off the charts!
