Note: Throwback Thursday is a new series where I take some of my original posts here on Curry and Comfort and redo them so I can take better photos.
2lbs of ground meat. I used 1lb chicken, 1lb pork
2Tbs of Soy sauce
1tsp sesame oil
1 Tbs grated ginger
3-4 cloves of garlic grated
2Tbs of Hoisin sauce (divided)
some scallion finely chopped (bottom can be used) -optional
1 tsp of red chili flakes (or to taste)
salt and pepper to taste (if necessary)
Mix all the ingredients above well (with the exception of 1 Tbs of hoisin sauce) and make 8 large patties. The ground chicken/pork is not very dense and it is hard to form the burger in your hands. So I made very large meatballs and placed them on the hot griddle. Then I pressed down with my fingers (or you can used a spoon) to form the patty.
Cook and flip the burger half way to get both sides caramelized. Glaze the burgers with the last Tbs of hoisin sauce to give a nice color and look.
To make the Asian Slaw:
1 carrot grated
1 bunch of spring onions (green part) sliced
1-2 green chilies (serrano or jalapeno) seeded and finely diced
For the sauce:
1-2 tsp of Sesame Oil
1/2 Tbs of sesame seeds (optional)
2 tsp of canola oil
1 tsp of sugar
1 tsp of ginger root grated
1 clove of garlic grated
salt and pepper to taste
Mix well and toss with the coleslaw vegetables. Chill and serve with burger or any Asian meal.
