This dinner is popular with the kids and is great served for Super Bowl Sunday.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 large onion, finely chopped

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • ¾ pound ground beef sirloin

  • 1 can (14 ½ ounces) tomato puree

  • ½ teaspoon mustard powder

  • 1 ½ teaspoons dark-brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar

  • 16 party-size potato rolls


  1. Heat oil over medium in a large saucepan. Add onion and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook until softened, stirring occasionally, 6 to 8 minutes.

  2. Add beef, and cook, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, 4 to 5 minutes. Add tomato puree, mustard powder, sugar, and vinegar. Cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, 8 to 10 minutes. (To store, refrigerate, up to 2 days.) Serve warm on rolls.

Cook's Notes

With leaner ground sirloin, the sliders have less fat and the rolls won't get soggy.
