Spicy Beef Sliders + Giveaway #recipesfromtheheart

Spicy Beef Sliders from #grilling #recipe #recipesfromtheheart

Today’s event is being hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Jen of Juanita’s Cocina. They teamed up with their blogger friends to help raise awareness and support for Cancer and Hospice today in memory of Kim’s dad. We encourage everyone to read the posts and share their own experiences with cancer. We also would like to encourage everyone to donate to the Canadian Cancer Society, the American Cancer Society and also to the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association. Hospice was a key element during Kim’s father’s battle with cancer. They made it possible for Kim to care for him at home. So please show your support and donate if you can. You can also contact your local Hospice and donate directly to them if you wish. A little goes a long way!

Spicy Beef Sliders from #grilling #recipe #recipesfromtheheart

In honor of todays event which also coincidentally falls on father’s day I decided to share what everyone dad loves best… Spicy Beef Sliders!  The majority of the heat can be found not only in the beef patty but also in the spicy sauce that is made to go on the slider. This is a nice twist to the everyday slider.

These spicy beef sliders are also a spicy way to kick cancers butt! I’ve had a few family members whom I’ve lost to this horrible disease; my grandmother and my uncle to name a few. In this day in age, we should have a cure for cancer already–yet we still don’t!  Today’s post is truly dedicated to all those we’ve lost to cancer.

I sure wish someone would find a cure. Losing loved ones to this terrible disease is horrible. I’d love to see an end to it.
