Negi-miso burgers

Most people here are from some where else including myself so I believe that people bring their own family recipe and tradition with them & make it as if it is local tradition here in Vegas. In my case, I brought my family recipes with me so I like to cook Japanese food a lot but my husband who is all American boy may not like old school Japanese food so I made this as a burger.

Comments 

negi-miso sauce is very salty. so do not want to use a lot of salt into meat.
Usually negi-miso sauce use for yakitori which is grilled chicken on wooden skeweres.
