To make Marinate:
In bowl combine soy sauce, sake, garlic, brown sugar, sesame oil, and pepper. Mix well with wire whip until sugar is completely dissolved. Set aside.

To make Patties:
Place burger meat in a large chilled bowl. Add salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and Sambal chili sauce. Using a large metal spoon. Mix meat together using a chopping and folding motion to avoid over mixing. Form burger mixture into 12 equal sized ball and flatten each between 2 sheets of Reynolds Wrap Wax Paper. Use the bottom of a plate as a press until patties are about ½ ” thick. Coat a baking dish with some of the marinate. Place the sliders in the dish and pour the remaining marinate over the patties. Wrap tight in Reynolds Wrap Plastic Wrap and keep cold until grilling.

To make cucumber salad:
In a medium bowl. Combine Sugar, water, rice wine vinegar, salt, and pepper and mix well. Toss in sliced cucumbers and mix so all cucumber are coated with marinate.

To make Asian Slaw:
Mix all slaw ingredients both wet and dry in a large bowl. Mix together until completely incorporated. Cover with Reynolds Plastic wrap and keep cool until needed.
Grilling: Prepare a medium fire in a charcoal grill with lid, or preheat gas grill to medium heat. With a paper towel or clean cloth towel. Rub vegetable oil on the grill racks to prevent sticking. Place slider patties on the grill. Cook for 2-4 min. the patty edges should show signs of cooking before you turn them over. Flip the patties and cook for another 2-4 minutes. Place slider buns cut side down on an empty space on the grill rack. Turn the heat to low to avoid burning. Remove both cooked slider burgers and buns once toasted.

Spread a teaspoon of Chili Mayo on both top and bottoms of toasted buns. Place a small handful of Asian slaw on the bottom bun. Rest a slider burger on the slaw and top with some cucumber salad. Cover with the bun top.
