2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Marinate your protein

  • Steak, chicken, or pork strips: Cut a small corner from the packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer the meat to a cutting board; pat dry with a paper towel. Cut into bite-size pieces. 
  • Chicken breast or pork loin chops: Pat the meat dry with a paper towel; cut into bite-size pieces.
  • Tofu: Pat the tofu dry with paper towels; cut into bite-size pieces.
  • Plant-based chicken: Pat the plant-based chicken dry with a paper towel; cut into bite-size pieces.

In a medium bowl, combine your protein, dried thyme, and tamari marinade and toss to coat. Let marinate while you prepare the slaw and toast the buns.


Make the orange-chipotle slaw

  • Cut away any core from the cabbage; coarsely chop the cabbage. 
  • Using your hands or a sharp knife, peel the orange; coarsely chop the fruit. Discard any seeds.

In a large bowl, toss together the cabbage, orange, carrots, and 3 tablespoons [6 TBL] chipotle-mustard vinaigrette; season to taste with salt and pepper and more vinaigrette, if desired. Refrigerate while you prepare the rest of the meal.


Toast the buns

In a large frying pan, place the buns, cut sides down, and cook over medium-high heat until lightly toasted, 1 to 2 minutes. Alternatively, toast them in a toaster oven. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan.


Cook your protein

In the same pan used for the buns, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add your protein and marinade and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned and cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes for steak, pork, tofu, or plant-based chicken and 6 to 8 minutes for chicken. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. While your protein is cooking, prepare the roasted red peppers. 


Prep the roasted red peppers; assemble the sliders

  • Using a fork, coarsely mash the roasted red peppers. Alternatively, finely chop them.

In a small bowl, stir together the roasted red peppers and 1 to 2 teaspoons oil; season to taste with salt and pepper.  

Place the bun bottoms, cut sides up, on a work surface and top each with the roasted red peppers and your protein. Close with the bun tops.


Transfer the sliders and orange-chipotle slaw to individual plates and serve.
