Quick and Easy Asian Burgers
- 1 pound ground pork, can substitute beef
- 1/4 cup bread crumbs
- 1 egg
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 teaspoon ginger, minced (optional ingredient)
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons cilantro
- 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce, can substitute for plum sauce
- 4 hamburger buns
Preheat grill. Mix pork, bread crumbs, egg, garlic, ginger, soy sauce and cilantro with your hands. Form into patties. Grill until desired doneness (about 5-7 minutes each side). Brush with hoisin sauce. Serve on buns with other condiments of choice (like bean sprouts, lettuce and onions).
Double this recipe and freeze the extra. Just remove burgers from freezer the night before you serve them and store in the refrigerator. Bring them to room temperature about 1 hour before grilling so that the inside of each burger can warm up. Otherwise, you might end up with a burger that is cooked on the outside but not on the inside. Leftover burger that have been cooked can be re-warmed in a 200F oven for 20 minutes.
