I gave these burgers an Asian flair reminiscent of bahn mi but with my own touch. I make a sauce that is used both in the burgers and as a glaze and top it with a crunchy, tangy slaw made with cucumbers, carrots and scallions and dressed simply with a rice wine vinegar dressing. —sdebrango

In This Recipe
Place the prepared vegetables in a bowl, whisk all the ingredients together for the dressing and pour over the vegetables, toss to combine,season with salt and pepper, cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
Whisk all ingredients for the sauce together and set aside.
Mix the pork, scallions, pepper and sauce together. I did not season with salt. the sauce added enough salt for my taste. Shape into patties and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Heat grill pan on stove top or fire up the barbie. Brush one side of the pattie with the sauce and place on hot grill, brush the other side. Grill to desired doneness, I found it took about 3 minutes per side
I have loved to cook for as long as I can remember, am self taught learning as I go. I come from a large Italian family and food was at the center of almost every gathering. My grandfather made his own wine and I remember the barrels of wine in the cellar of my grandfathers home, I watched my mother and aunts making homemade pasta and remember how wonderful it was to sit down to a truly amazing dinner. Cooking for me is a way to express myself its my creative outlet. I enjoy making all types of food but especially enjoy baking,
I live in Brooklyn, NY, and I share my home with my two dogs Izzy and Nando.
I like to collect cookbooks and scour magazines and newspapers for recipes. I hope one day to organize them.
