WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

It’s a flavor-filled spin on a traditional beef slider. Ground pork is an excellent source of protein. Tomato sauce adds nutrients like vitamin C, K, lycopene, and potassium. Pair the sliders with sauteed greens, roasted vegetables, or a big salad and you’ve got a healthy meal.
