Stuffing a bun with leftover brisket is nothing new but nevertheless worth repeating cause it never gets old. Kick it up a notch by topping with crunchy green cabbage like I do with my Short Rib Sliders, or soft creamy avocado like I do with my BBQ Pulled Chicken Sliders. Or take it to the next level by making a homemade Mango BBQ Sauce and Pepper Jicama Slaw or go “Banh-Mi” with carrots, cabbage, radish, cilantro, lime, rice wine vinegar, chili garlic sauce and Sesame Cucumber Salad.
