The Sushi Burger

A few weeks ago I had this tasty idea to combine two foods our family loves so much - sushi and burgers. The ingredients came pouring into my mind as I salivated at the vision before me. I knew this would be a five star masterpiece!

I served it sweet potato fries and my amazing ginger dressing dip. I also served with extra sushi rolls and some wasabi. It was fabulous!! I have done Asian burgers before but this tops them all for sure.

The Sushi Burger

  • 1 lb raw ground beef, thawed
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp Worchestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup of panko bread crumbs
  • sprinkle of salt and fresh cracked pepper

  • 6-8 Fresh made sushi rolls
  • 3 cups of crispy, fried onion strings (I made mine from scratch but you can buy them on the salad dressing isle)
  • 1 jar of pickled ginger
  • 1 bottle of Sushi Unagi Sauce
  • Don't forget the hamburger buns!
Asian Slaw
  • 1 bag of fresh coleslaw mix (shredded cabbage and carrots)
  • 3/4 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 rice vinegar 
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp grated ginger
Ginger Dipping Sauce for Sweet Potato Fries

Mix all of the patty ingredients together in a large bowl. Shape into thick patties and heat up grill. Grill patties on 350 degrees until no longer pink in the centers. Place on baking sheet and keep warm in the oven on 200 degrees.

Meanwhile in a medium bowl, mix together the Asian slaw ingredients (minus the the bag of coleslaw). Mix together until smooth and creamy - then toss in the bag of coleslaw. Place in the fridge.

At this time I slice up a large onion, very thin. I wet the slices and dip them in salted flour and then toss them in my deep frier for a minute or two until they are crispy.

If you are serving the sweet potato fries, you will want them to already be baking in the oven or you can deep fry them ahead of time and keep them warm with your patties.

Assemble burgers with patties on buns. Add sushi roll and drizzle Sushi Unagi Sauce over top. Add pickled ginger, Asian slaw and top with crispy onions. Serve with fries and ginger dip!!
