Asian Slaw Burgers

I love these burgers - gourmet all the way. They have just the right amount of flavor. I infused Asian flavor into the ground beef and then of course added it into the coleslaw. You get a mouthful of crisp, crunchy slaw coated in creamy ginger dressing on a juicy beef patty on a delicious bun! No need for condiments with this burger it has an act all of it's own!

These are great with sweet potato fries.

Asian Slaw Burgers

Asian Slaw
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp fresh grated ginger
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 1/2 bag freshly cut coleslaw mix (cabbage and carrots)
  • 1 cucumber thinly sliced
  • 6 radishes thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise (I use Kraft made with Olive Oil)
  • 1 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1/2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 Tbsp soy sauce
Combine coleslaw, cucumber, radishes and onion in a medium bowl. In a frying pan saute garlic and ginger. Pour over coleslaw and toss. In a small bowl combine mayo, rice vinegar, sugar and soy sauce. Blend until creamy. Pour over coleslaw and toss until evenly coated. Chill for 1-2 hours.

Asian Burger

  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 egg

Combine ingredients in order as listed above. Stir egg into mixture very well before adding bread crumbs. Shape into patties and grill until well done in centers.

Serve patty hot on bun or roll and top with Asian slaw. Enjoy!
