Planning to throw a few burgers on the grill this weekend? Try this Asian-inspired twist on an American classic.
(Wondering where to find lemongrass in the Market? It’s located in the iced produce section near the broccoli and behind the bananas, oranges, and lemons.)
½ lb ground beef or pork
2 Tbl minced lemongrass
2 Tbl minced scallion
2 Tbl minced fresh cilantro
1 Tbl minced garlic
1 Tbl fish sauce
2 tsp soy sauce
½ tsp sugar
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp fresh-ground black pepper
What to Do:
Combine all ingredients and mix well. Let rest in refrigerator for an hour to 1 day.
Shape meat into patties and grill or broil as you would a hamburger until cooked to your liking. Serve warm, with lettuce leaves, cilantro and sriracha mayo on a toasted bun.
