I just LOVE Thai food so I wanted to create a burger that had that wonderful Thai flavor. It turned out to be just delish! Don't be scared of the green curry paste it really isn't that spicy. It just adds extra flavor. You have to make the slaw and mayo to really get the full effect of the burger. I hope y'all enjoy it!
1For the Burger: saute' the mushrooms in oil till tender. Take off the stove and set aside. Next mix together the pork, ground chuck, fish sauce, green onions, curry paste and salt. Then mix in the the mushrooms with the meat mixture. Let sit in the fridge for at least 4 hours.
2For the slaw: in a frying pan on medium heat; saute' the fresh ginger,
and garlic till fragrant. Add the soy sauce and brown sugar and mix for a about 30 seconds. Take off the burner and set a side.
3Next step for slaw: Mix in a medium bowl, the broccoli slaw, bell pepper, seasoned rice vinegar, sesame oil, green onions, sugar, nuts and then the ginger garlic mixture you sauteed earlier and salt and pepper to taste. Mix well and place in the fridge for about 4 hours.
4For the Cilantro Lime Mayo: In a small bowl mix together the light mayo, chopped cilantro, lime zest and lime juice. Mix well and set a side till ready to use.
5When you are ready to cook the burger. Heat your grill to meduim. ( you can use your indoor grill too.)Make 6 thick patties. Cook on each side for about 6 minutes or on your indoor grill for about 10 minutes. While the burgers are cooking toast the buns. Then slather on some cilantro lime mayo on the bun. Next when the burger is done place it on the bun and finish it off with some Asian slaw on top of the burger. ENJOY!
