Since my Al Pastor taco recipe was such a hit, I decided to apply the same flavour concept to a delicious al pastor turkey meatball sliders recipe. You can use any bread for preparing this, but I just used rolls because they’re so easy to eat.
After some experimentation, the ratio below worked best.
Appetizing Al Pastor Turkey Meatball Sliders
These Al Pastor turkey meatball sliders are a major hit at home and i know it will be too at your house! Check out the very easy recipe here.
- 1 pound ground turkey
- ¼ cup Panko breadcrumbs
- 1 medium egg
- ½ tablespoon chili powder (chilli powder in British English) - guajillo
- ½ tablespoon garlic powder
- ½ tablespoon dried oregano
- ½ tablespoon ground cumin
- ½ tablespoon salt
- ½ tablespoon ground black pepper
- 4 slices pineapple - for garnish, if desired
- Heat a little bit of oil in a deep pot over medium heat.
- Combine ground turkey, breadcrumbs, egg, achiote paste, guajillo chilli powder, garlic powder, oregano, cumin, salt, ground black pepper, pineapple vinegar, and ¼ cup of the pineapple juice in a large bowl. Mix thoroughly to combine.
- Shape the mixture into evenly sized meatballs and place in the pot or dutch oven once the oil is heated to temperature.
- Brown the meatballs on all sides. Use a spoon to flip them around to make sure the entire outside is seared and browned nicely.
- Pour in the remaining 1 cup of pineapple juice as well as the jar of pineapple salsa. Mix gently not to break the meatballs, and bring the whole pot or dutch oven to a slow boil.
- Decrease the heat, cover, and allow to simmer for at least an hour.
- If desired, serve the meatballs on the King’s Hawaiian rolls and top with a slice of pineapple.
