Asian Burgers with Spicy Mayo and Crunchy Slaw

asian burgers with spicy mayo

These Asian burgers with spicy mayo will take your burger game to a whole new flavor.  Asian flavors like hoisin, soy sauce and ginger pack a flavor punch and the slaw adds a crisp, cool crunch.  Best of all -- these can be on the table in 30 minutes!  I love to make these into sliders because they cook faster.  Make the ketchup and mayo early in the day to give the flavors a chance to meld together.

And if you're looking for the perfect side dish, this Grilled Bok Choy pairs really well!

Serves: 4 Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 hamburger buns (I love using the Hawaiian burger buns)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Hamburgers:
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 1-3 teaspoons Asian chili garlic sauce (I like using Sambal Oelek -- it's easy to find and delicious!)
  • 1 tablespoon sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin (Lee Kum Kee or Kikkoman)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Chili Garlic Mayonnaise:
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Asian chili garlic sauce
  • Hoisin Ketchup:
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • Asian Slaw:
  • 4 cups coleslaw
  • 1 cup carrots, cut into matchstick pieces
  • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil

Instructions

1

Add egg to a large bowl and gently whisk.

2

Add the rest of the hamburger Ingredients and mix with your hands until just barely combined.

3

Form mixture into 4 equal patties roughly the size of your hamburger buns. Using your thumb, make a deep impression in the middle of each patty. Set aside.

4

Meanwhile, in a small bowl whisk together all ingredients for the hoisin ketchup. Set aside in refrigerator.

5

In another small bowl, whisk together all the mayonnaise ingredients. Set aside in refrigerator.

6

Add coleslaw and carrots to a large bowl and toss with remaining slaw ingredients. Refrigerate until ready to use.

7

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

8

Once hot, add patties and cook until brown and slightly charred on one side, about 3-4 minutes. Flip and cook an additional 3-5 minutes. If you like your burgers more well done, add a couple minutes per side. If they start getting too charred before they're done cooking, lower the heat to avoid them burning.

9

While the burgers are cooking, spread each half of the buns with a little butter and toast.

10

When the burgers are done, let them rest about 5 minutes.

11

To assemble, spread the buns with some chili garlic mayo, top with the burger, top the burger with some hoisin ketchup and add a handful of the slaw.
