Combine all the best flavors (and colors) of Christmas into one delicious dish with these sweet and savory sliders. The boneless beef short ribs, braised in soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, balsamic vinegar, chicken broth, garlic, and ginger, become fall-apart tender after a few hours in a multi-pot or slow cooker. Place the shredded meat onto Martin’s Slider Rolls and top with creamy brie cheese, some homemade balsamic-cranberry sauce flavored with rosemary and ginger, and a few leaves of arugula for a festive finishing touch!
