You'll need an already prepared and cooked brisket, or leftover brisket, to make these fabulous mini sandwiches. Top with my special sauce (recipe below) and assemble them on small rolls (slider rolls or homemade mini challah rolls). Pile a platter of these for a Hanukkah party, Shabbat, or any celebratory occasion.

Top or serve alongside my tri-color Asian coleslaw, caramelized onions and ranch fries, or latkes for a holiday feel.

Makes 8 to 10 servings
Ingredients: 
SLIDERS:
4 pounds, approximately, leftover brisket chunks and bite-sized pieces
Mini challah rolls, slider rolls or mini hamburger buns

1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup cola

1/4 teaspoon cumin
Salt and pepper
