Asian Sloppy Joe Sliders
At his Boston gastropub, Blue Dragon, star chef Ming Tsai will serve these Asian-accented sliders. They’re based on a recipe his mother made for him when he was young: She’d fill his thermos with the chile-sauce-and-ginger-flavored ground meat and include the slider buns in his lunch box. “Everyone at school wanted them, so I’d usually trade a little slider for a complete lunch,” says Tsai.

The sloppy joe filling can be refrigerated for up to 3 days. Reheat gently before serving.
Bar snacks, like these fun sliders, almost always pair best with beer. Try these with a slightly hoppy pale ale, like the ones made by California’s Sierra Nevada or New York state’s Saranac.
