Secure your title as ‘hostess with the mostess’ with these delectable and delicious spicy roast beef sliders. They’re super easy to make, and since these little sandwiches only have 5 ingredients, they’re perfect for this weeks’ Five Ingredient Friday!
Do you ever get bored with the spread at parties? The same dips, the same finger foods, the same salads…nothing really eye catching or mouthwatering? Well, bring these sliders and spice up the party spread! Literally, you’ll bring the heat with these bad boys!
The meat in these sliders is an Omaha Steaks Santa Fe Tri-Tip Roast. The cool thing about this roast is that it has slow-cooked flavor…without the slow. It uses their 1 step-rapid-roast method which is kind of cool. All you do is literally take the roast from your freezer and pop it in the oven on a lined baking sheet. In less than an hour your roast is done, and the remaining steps are really super easy. You could also also use a roast and cook it with a very spicy rub.

To make the sandwiches, you slice roasted beef super thin, place it on some buns in a baking dish (I like to use little slider buns with a hint of sweetness like Kings Hawaiian), add some cheese and jalapeno slices and then bake for 15 minutes. I like to use pepper-Jack cheese to really kick it up a notch.
You’re left with these incredibly delicious sandwiches with amazing flavor.
I never used to like spicy food until I found out that liking spicy food is something that is learned. So I started slowly trying different things that had a little spice to them. While I can’t pretend I completely love over-the-top spicy food or that I still don’t break out in a sweat when trying some new foods, I can tell you that now I do like hints of spice. Baby steps, right?
While I was making these I was cutting the jalapenos super thin and actually picked up a little slice and ate it! At first my mouth was a little bit on fire and I thought I was going to regret my decision, but two seconds after I ate the slice of jalapeno I found myself reaching for another slice and eating it to and really liking the crunchy spicy flavor.
Along with the jalapeno slices I used pepperjack cheese which adds a smooth flavor finished with a slight kick. Combine the sweet buns, Santa Fe roast, pepperjack cheese and jalapenos and the end result is one irresistible slider!

Those look mouth-watering but unfortunately I won’t be able to taste them with jalapenos:) Just like you, I (Mirella) can’t digest hot spicy food, it messes up with my stomach so I avoid it at all costs:) But perhaps some sweet red peppers might do the trick for our household (Panos nods in agreement, he’s so sympathetic to this, as he loves hot spicy food himself:) )
Thanx for the yummy idea dear!
These could definitely be made with bell peppers and a non-spicy cheese like provolone or mozzarella and they’d still be delish 🙂

Thanx so much for giving us substitutes dear Phi! You’re always so kind! Big hug!
Definitely, these sliders rock for parties 🙂
Hi Phi, this looks perfect for feeding a crowd, love this combination.
Thank you so much Cheri – these little sliders are perfect for game day and parties 🙂
What a great simple recipe idea. Loving that you’re getting into spice a little more.. it really often just depends on how spicy the pepper is… jalepenos typically aren’t too bad for me, but I’ve had a few that really punch up the heat! Great photos as always 🙂
Thank you so much Sarah! I have been experimenting with various forms of peppers at different heat levels and totally am falling in love (slowly) with the heat!
