These Hawaiian Roll Pull Apart Cheesesteak Sliders are ah-mazing!! I'd have to say, my #1 FAVORITE tailgate appetizer on my blog. Cheese whiz, provolone, caramelized onions and thinly sliced steak are sandwiched between a layer of sweet, tender King's Hawaiian Rolls and baked until gooey perfection. Need I say more?
Add 3 tablespoons oil to a large skillet along with the diced onion. Sauté for 10-15 minutes over medium-low heat stirring every so often so it doesn't burn. You just want your onions soft and tender so watch your heat.
Remove onions and add your beef to the same skillet with 2 tablespoons of oil. Add 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, ¾ teaspoon onion powder and ½ teaspoon garlic powder. Sauté over high heat until steak is cooked through. (About 5-7 minutes.) Don't worry about chopping it up just yet.
Add steak to a cutting board and chop finely using a large chef's knife. Mix in your fried onions and set aside.
Remove your Hawaiian rolls from package and slice the entire thing in half using a long serrated knife trying not to separate each roll. Place bottom layer of bread on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or silicone mat. (This will make it easier to remove later.)
Spread slices of provolone cheese evenly across the bottom layer of bread.
Top with steak and onions making sure to spread to the edges.
Mix together 8 ounces of Velveeta cheese and ¼ cup milk and heat in the microwave in 30 second intervals mixing until smooth and creamy. (If using Cheese Whiz, omit the milk and heat jar in microwave according to instructions.)*The milk helps to thin out the Velveeta making it easier to drizzle over top and also keeps it from getting too hard when the sliders cool.
Drizzle your yellow cheese over the steak and onions and carefully close with top layer of bread.
Add chopped parsley to the melted butter and brush over top of your rolls.
Bake on the middle rack covered with tinfoil for 5-10 minutes.
Remove tinfoil and set your oven to broiler. Broil the top for 1-2 minutes or until the rolls are lightly browned. Keep a close eye on it so it doesn't burn!! Serve hot and ketchup on the side.
Yield: 12 Sliders
*You can use cheese whiz instead of Velveeta if you prefer or make your own homemade whiz.
Add green peppers to your onions if you wish.
Reheat your sliders in the oven covered with foil at 325ºF for 5-10 minutes.
Make your sliders in advance!Assemble your sliders according to instructions but wait to bake them off. Instead, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Then bake accordingly.
