Chimichurri Steak Sliders are my mouthwateringly delicious take on the classic burger sliders with yellow onion rings. Instead of ground beef, imagine succulent slices of perfectly grilled ribeye steak nestled between our soft slider rolls. Instead of giant sliced onions, delicate and crispy fried shallots level up our sandwiches. And for our secret sauce, we are dazzling our taste buds with some zesty chimichurri sauce. Are you drooling yet?

Ingredients for the Steak Sliders

All the ingredients from Kroger Delivery are assembled.
  • Ribeye Steak – Canola oil, kosher salt, black pepper, and garlic powder season our tender steak. 
  • Chimichurri – This zesty sauce is better than anything you can buy at your local grocery store. It’s a combo of chopped parsley, minced garlic, olive oil, red wine vinegar, red pepper flakes, kosher salt, and black pepper.
  • Fried Shallots – Kosher salt, garlic powder, and black pepper season our shallots. Choose a high smoke point vegetable oil for the frying.
  • Sliders – Our soft slider buns brushed with melted butter perfectly complement our juicy meat and melted mozzarella cheese.

If you can’t wait to make the sliders, skip to the recipe card. Or, come with me while I break down all the easy steps to steak slider bliss. 

How to Make Chimichurri Steak Sliders


Let’s dive into this steak slider recipe, starting with the shallots. Thinly slice them, then give them a good squeeze between some paper towels to get rid of any excess water. Set them aside to dry out while we prep the rest.

The prep: chimichurri sauce and sliced shallots.

Next up, the easy yet so freakin’ flavorful chimichurri sauce. Toss all the ingredients into a small bowl and give them a good mix. Set aside. 

Now, onto the main event, the juicy steak. Give the ribeyes a good slathering of oil and a generous seasoning with salt, pepper, and garlic powder, or your favorite steak rub. Place them in the fridge until we’re ready to cook.

Frying Time

While the steaks are chilling in the fridge, let’s preheat the grill to medium-high heat for that perfect sear. 

The shallots are fried in oil until crispy.

To make the crispy shallots for the steak sliders, pull out a cast iron skillet and add about an inch of oil, heated up to a medium heat of around 350° degrees F. Once it’s hot enough, carefully add the sliced shallots to your large skillet and fry them up until they’re golden brown and crispy, about 2-3 minutes. Don’t forget to do this in batches so they don’t get overcrowded.

Once the shallots are done, pull them out of the oil with a slotted spoon and set them on paper towels. Keep them warm until serving. 

Grilling the Steaks

Now, it’s time for the steaks. They’ll go on the grill for about 3-4 minutes per side until they hit 120° degrees F. Once they’re cooked to perfection, pull them off and let them rest for a good 10 minutes.

The ribeye steaks are grilled to perfection.


Now, let’s assemble our tasty sliders! Slice your rolls in half and lay the bottom half of the rolls in a foil bin or cooking-safe skillet. Layer on some thin slices of cheese, the sliced ribeye steaks, and those crispy shallots, then top it all off with more cheese and the remaining roll halves. Brush the top of the buns with melted butter and they’re ready for the grill.

The sandwiches are assembled and grilled again.

Final Grill

Fire up the grill again, this time to medium-high heat, and pop those steak and cheese sliders on for about 10-12 minutes until the cheese melts and they’re golden brown and crispy. Once they’re done, let them rest for a few minutes before slicing them up with a serrated knife. 

Cheers to another successful recipe made with the help of Kroger Delivery! 

What to Serve with Chimichurri Steak Sliders

Serve those delicious steak sliders with a side of chimichurri for dipping, and enjoy! French fries and some of those big onion rings are some great options for sides to serve with this crowd-pleasing recipe.

How to Store & Reheat

If you have any leftover Chimichurri Steak Sliders, wrap the steak and shallots separately in plastic or foil and store them in an airtight container for no more than 5 days.

When you’re ready for round two of the steak sliders, grab some fresh bread to make more sandwiches. Don’t forget got brush the tops of the rolls with more butter before warming up on the grill using medium high heat. 


FAQs for Chimichurri Steak Sliders

Can I use another type of steak?

While the ribeyes are a tender steak, you can experiment with another cut of meat for the Chimichurri Steak Sliders. NY strip is one option. Skirt steak is often the cut of beef used in an authentic Philly cheesesteak slider recipe. If you do go that route, I recommend marinating the steak before cooking. 

Can I use other kinds of melted cheese? 

Certainly! If you don’t want to use mozzarella, American cheese or provolone slices works too. 

Can I use Hawaiian rolls for slider buns? 

Soft Hawaiian sweet rolls are fine as long as you don’t mind more sugary sweetness in your bread.
