Ingredients

  • Burgers
  • 1 pounds ground pork
  • 2 large cloves garlic minced
  • 2 TBS minced red onion or sweet onion
  • 2 TBS scallions sliced thin
  • 1 TBS minced ginger
  • 2 TBS sesame oil
  • 1 TBS soy sauce optional
  • Kosher salt & pepper
  • 2 TBS chopped parsley or cilantrro
  • Salad greens or baby spinach for your burger bun optional
  • Ginger Garlic Sauce
  • 3 TBS sesame oil
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 TBS minced ginger
  • TBS rice wine vinegar
  • 2 TBS honey
  • 1-2 TBS Chili with Garlic Sauce depends on how much you enjoy heat
  • ½ tsp cornstarch
  • Cilantro or parsley for garnish

Instructions

  • Burgers
  • Combine all ingredients together and form into patties.
  • They will be wet. It's fine. Allow them to chill for at least 30 minutes to set.
  • Place on a baking sheet until ready to cook.
  • When ready to cook, preheat your non-stick skillet or your grill (be sure your grates are clean and oiled prior to igniting the grill).
  • Use a small amount of olive or grapeseed oil (1-2 TBS or so) to fry burgers until nicely browned. Lower heat and allow burgers to cook through. Brush liberally with glaze when done. Serve on a roll or simply on a plate with some of the slaw (see notes for recipe).
  • While burgers are cooking (or before) Make your Spicy Ginger-Honey Sauce
  • In a frying pan with sides, combine sesame oil, garlic and ginger and saute for 1-2 minutes until fragrant. Add in vinegar, honey and chili with garlic sauce and bring to a boil. Add in cornstarch and whisk until combined and thickened. Taste

Notes

To make a quick Asian-flavored slaw:
Grab a bag of slaw mix (pre-shredded). I like adding thin slices of red cabbage to this. In a small bowl, combine 1 TBS sesame oil, 1 TBS fresh lime juice, 1 TBS soy sauce, 1 TBS honey and salt & pepper. Give it a good toss and allow it to sit for 10 minutes. The burger and glaze are flavorful, so I go super simple and fresh with the slaw. Feel free to make a more complex one if you wish.
