Quick and Easy Asian Burgers

August 3, 2012 by Kenmore

The secret to this Asian-inspired burger is ground pork, brushed with Chinese hoisin sauce.


preparation time

cook time




1 pounds ground pork (can substitute beef)

0.25 cup breadcrumbs

1 egg

2 cloves garlic

1 teaspoons ginger minced (optional)

1 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons cilantro

2 tablespoons hoisin sauce (can substitute plum sauce)

4 hamburger buns



Preheat grill. Mix pork, bread crumbs, egg, garlic, ginger, soy sauce and cilantro with your hands. Form into patties. Grill until desired doneness (about 5-7 minutes each side). Brush with hoisin sauce. Serve on buns with other condiments of choice (like bean sprouts, lettuce and onions).


Double this recipe and freeze the extra. Just remove burgers from freezer the night before you serve them and store in the refrigerator. Bring them to room temperature about 1 hour before grilling so that the inside of each burger can warm up. Otherwise, you might end up with a burger that is cooked on the outside but not on the inside. Leftover burger that have been cooked can be re-warmed in a 200°F oven for 20 minutes.
