Asian Burgers with Spicy Hoisin Sauced Shitake Mushrooms & Snowpeas

This is the first time that I have ever entered the Sutter Home Winery's Build a Better Burger contest. My husband and I have been experimenting different ideas for several months now. This really has been fun yet a challenge. We have experimented with our children, our friend and even our pets. It has definitely been a fun adventure win or lose. We will continue to enjoy Sutter Home wines for some time. Thank you for this opportunity. Patricia, St. Inigoes, Maryland


Spicy Hoisin Sauced Shitake Mushrooms & Snowpeas:
PAM Cooking Spray
8 tablesppoons Hoisin Sauce
1/2 tablespoon Tabasco Pepper Sauce
2 tablespoons water
5 oz. package sliced Shitake mushrooms
1 Cup fresh snowpeas
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Asian Burgers:
2 lbs. ground chuck
1 cup grated carrots
1 cup grated onions
1 beaten egg
2 tablespoons Sutter Home Chardonnay
3/4 cups soy sauce
6 Potato Rolls


Spray grill generously with PAM cooking Spray before you start your grills. Preheat gas grill on high for 5 minutes keeping cover closed, or for charcoal grill ~ prepare medium to hot coals & have cover for grill. To make sauce: Spray PAM generously in cast iron frying pan. Lightly saute mushrooms and snowpeas. Add Hoisin sauce, Tabasco Pepper Sauce, water and garlic powder. Stir gently, cover and set aside on edge of grill. To make patties: Mix ground chuck, carrots, onions, beaten egg, Sutter Home Chardonnay and soy sauce gently together. This mixture should be very moist. Divide mixture into six equal size patties. Place patties on PAM greased rack when grill is ready, cover and cook for 6 to 8 minutes, turning only once. The burgers will have a beautiful shining brown glisten to them. Remove from rack. Split potatoe rolls and open-side down to brown gently on grill. Serve Asian Burgers on potato rolls and top with Spicy Hoisin Sauced Shitake Mushrooms and Snowpeas.


This recipe started from a Lumpia recipe that a Phillipino friend of mine had given me over 30 years ago. The mixture is used in Lumpia wrappers, and when finished looks very much like an eggroll. After preparing the Lumpia for a beach party, I had some extra beef mixture left and experimented with it. That is how the Asian Burger all came about. Our family has been enjoying it ever since. Hope you enjoy too.
