Sherman’s Got Balls
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 egg
2 tbsp. half and half
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup minced onion
1 seeded jalapeño, minced
1/2 tsp. cayenne
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
Good BBQ sauce

Preheat oven to 350˚. In a large bowl combine egg, water, bread crumbs, onion, jalapeños, and spices. Add ground beef and mix with your hands to combine. Form into 1″ meatballs and place on a broiler pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes until meatballs are no longer pink in center. Toss in a BBQ of your choice and serve with toothpicks. Whoa, that’s one spicy meatball!

Beast Mode Pork Sliders
4 lbs. pork shoulder
22 oz. Seattle dark ale (with little to no hops)
1 medium onion, chopped
5 cloves garlic, minced
1 habañero pepper
Mini brioche buns
BBQ sauce

Spice Rub
2 tbs. salt
2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. cayenne
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. coriander

1/2 head of green cabbage, shredded
1/2 head of red cabbage, shredded
1/2 carrot, jullienned
1 fuji apple, matchsticks
1-2 green onions, sliced
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp. stone ground mustard
Salt and Pepper, to taste

Heat a dutch oven on medium-high and add 1 tbsp. vegetable oil. Rub pork shoulder with all of your spice rub and sear until browned on all sides. Remove from the heat and add your onions and thinly sliced habañero, and sauté until transluscent. Add the garlic and stir constantly until lightly browned. Add the beer and bring to a boil. Add the meat back into the pan and place in a 280˚ oven for 3 hours. You’ll know it’s done when the pork is falling apart. Top the brioche buns with some of the shedded pork, some slaw, and a spoonful of BBQ sauce. Once you start chomping on these, you won’t be able to stop!
