Chateaubriand Sliders & Chili

October is for football and fall comfort foods. So this Chateaubriand (beef tenderloin) roast was perfect to make into not one, but two great recipes. Since the beef is already seasoned for you, that is one less step you have to worry about! For our first recipe, you use my spicy coleslaw as a topping (since it’s not mayo-based, it’s healthier and full of flavor with balsamic vinegar as the main ingredient).

If you want to have a slider party, you can have caramelized onions, grilled red/green peppers, dijon mustard, or a slice of white cheddar cheese to make it a unique sandwich for everyone. It starts with my slider recipe, and goes from there. Next tailgate party, here you come!

– 3 1/4 cups all purpose flour (if using whole wheat, do half and half) and more for dusting

2. In stand mixer fitted with the dough hook, add flour, salt, sugar, and yeast and start mixer on low speed to just combine. Add milk mixture to flour and let mix until dough springs back, about 5-7 minutes.

3. Remove dough from bowl on flour surface and knead until smooth, turning dough over and folding until dough is smooth and not sticky.

4. Roll out, and using a small circular cutter (1-3 inches depending on size you need), cut out dough and place on a parchment lined baking sheet about an inch apart until all dough is used (will have to roll out the dough again from cutting).

5. Cover dough with a towel or plastic wrap, and in a cool place, let rest and rise for 30-40 minutes.

6. Preheat oven to 350 F and bake for 10-15 minutes, until tops are golden brown. Once out of the oven, you can add melted butter and sesame seeds if you like. Let cool, cut and enjoy!

Can freeze sliders for up to three months. Baked sliders can be wrapped tightly and used for up to three more days
