Push your thumb in the middle of the patty to form a dimple about 1/2 inch thick. Place the patties into the plastic container, and, keep in the fridge until ready to grill. One hour before you are ready to grill, make the slaw. Slaw: Cut one leak lengthwise. Rinse out all of the dirt and sand. Cut the "hairs" off the end of the leek and discard. Starting at the white end of the leek, cut the leek crosswise into paper thin slices unti you have 1 cup. Cut the carrots at an angle to form carrot chips. Place the carrot chips flat on the copping block and julliene to form match sticks. Drain the water chestnuts and julliene. In a large plastic self closing bag, add: 1 C sliced leeks 3/4 C Carrots cut into match sticks julliened water chestnuts 3 C Mung bean sprouts 1/2 C Korean Barbeque Sauce Give the bag a shake, and, place in the fridge. Slice the Kaiser Rolls in half. Pull a little of the bread from the inside of the top of the roll, and, discard the bread. Let the rolls sit out on the counter, so, they become crusty. Turn your gill on high, and, let it warm up for ten minutes. Oil the grill with Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Grill the rolls until golden brown. Spread Goulden's Brown Mustard on the bottom of the rolls. Again, oil the grill with Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Place your burgers on the grill, and, close the lid. Cook for the following minutes according to your preference: Rare: 2 minutes each side Medium Rare: 3 minutes each side Medium: 4 minutes each side; and, Well done: 5 minutes each side. When the burgers are done, place them on top of the mustard. Give your slaw a shake, and place the slaw on top of the pattie, making a mound in the center. Place the top of the roll on top of the patty, cut in half, and, enjoy.

Comments 

Because of the black bean sauce, the burgers may not look pink on the inside when cut in half. Only using one container, clean-up is a breeze, as barbequing should.
