For the burgers:

  • 1 1/2 lbs ground pork
  • 2 green onions finely diced
  • 1 tsp lemongrass
  • 1 tsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp finely grated fresh ginger
  • 1 large garlic clove minced
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • Burger buns *

For the slaw:

  • 2 cups freshly shredded cabbage
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tsp natural brown sugar


For the burgers:

  • Mix all ingredients except buns together in a large mixing bowl.  Don’t be afraid to get in there with your hands and get messy.
  • Form 5 patties that are about 1 inch thick. Chill in refrigerator for about one hour. Meanwhile, make the slaw.

For the slaw:

  • Mix vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil and brown sugar in a small bowl.  Toss with cabbage in a large bowl.  Set aside until burgers are done.
  • Place patties on a plate and refrigerate for about one hour. Meanwhile, make the slaw.

To cook burgers:

  • Grill burgers for about 4-5 minutes per side over medium high heat, or until juices run clear.
  • Lightly spray cut sides of buns with butter flavored cooking spray and place them cut side down on the grill. Cook for 2 minutes, or until lightly toasted.
  • Place burgers onto bottom sides of buns and top with Asian slaw and your favorite Asian condiments, such as sriracha, wasabi, or chili sauce.
