These Korean-inspired sliders feature flavorful pork, kimchi slaw and wasabi mayo for a spicy snack this football season. Don’t worry, the spiciness doesn’t overwhelm the subtle sweet flavors of the red pepper paste!

For the Wasabi Mayo:

For the Pork Bulgogi:

  2. In a large pan over medium-high heat, cook the pork until it is well done and browned.

For the Kimchi Slaw:

  1. In a large bowl or plastic container, combine all of the kimchi slaw ingredients. Toss, cover, and then shake to make sure everything is coated. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving, or overnight.

For the Wasabi Mayo:

  1. Combine all ingredients in small bowl. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Put it all together!:

  1. Generously pile the pork on the sliders, top with a bit of the Kimchi Slaw, and spread the wasabi mayo on the top bun. Serve with Sriracha on the side for those who like theirs extra spicy!
