Fiery Masarap Burger

Masarap means delicious in tagalong, the native language of the Philippines. On occasion we can talk my mother in law, of Filipino descent, into making delicious wontons. The filling in her wontons is flavorful and moist and seasoned to perfection. The Fiery Masarp Burger combines the essence of wontons with just good burger basics and some fun Asian condiments to make a truly masarap burger!

1/3 CUP OF CANOLA OIL
4 TSB OF JAPANESE RICE VINEGAR

Instructions 

To make the masarap slaw dressing combine the canola oil, japanese rice vinegar, brown sugar and seasoning packet in a bowl. Whisk well to combine. In another bowl pour the broccol slaw and then add the dressing. Mix well to coat all of the slaw. Top the slaw with the manadarin organes, stir gently and refrigerate until serving. In a pan on low heat pour peanut sauce. Add pepper flake, cloves of the minced garlic (reserving extra garlic for patties) and allow to warm and infuse with the pepper and garlic flavor while preparing and cooking burgers. To make the patties, combine the beef, pork, fish sauce, ginger and salt in a large bowl. Handling the meat as little as possible to avoid compacting it, mix well. Divide the mixture into 6 equal portions and form the portions into patties to fit the rolls. Brush the grill rack with oil. Place the patties on the rack, cover, and grill until browned on the bottoms, 3 to 4 minutes. Turn the patties and continue grilling until done to preference, about 5 minutes longer for medium. During the last few minutes of cooking place the rolls, cut side down, on the outer edges of the rack to toast lightly. To assemble burgers place the burger on the toasted side of the bottom of the bun. Fill a 1/2 cup measuring cup full of masarap brocoli slaw and use it to top the burger. Smooth the cut side of the top of the roll with a generous amount of the fiery peanut sauce. Top the slaw covered burger with a handfull of fried noodles and cover with the peanut sauce smothered top of the bun. Enjoy. Makes 6 burgers. Makes 6 burgers
