Sesame Ginger Stir-fry Burgers
I was looking for something different, and thought stir fry ingredients might make a good burger.
For the Burgers:
1-1/2 Pounds of Grass-fed Organic Ground Beef, 80% lean
1 Cup Plain Bread Crumbs
1/2 Cup Minced Carrots
1/4 Cup Minced Snow Pea Pods
1 Tablespoon Black Sesame Seeds, Toasted
1/4 Cup Minced Green Onions
2 Tablespoons Minced Ginger
2 Teaspoons Minced Garlic
1/2 Head Napa Cabbage, Grilled
9 Tablespoons Kraft Light Asian Toasted Sesame Reduced Fat Dressing
3/4 Cup Bean Sprouts
6 Sesame Seed Buns
2-3 Tablespoons Sesame Oil for Grill
Combine beef, bread crumbs and egg in a bowl, set aside.
Combine carrots, snow pea pods, toasted black sesame seeds, green onions, ginger and garlic in a small bowl, mix well.
Combine vegetable mixture with beef mixture and thoroughly combine all ingredients.
Divide into 6 equal portions and form patties, approximately 1/2 inch thick.
Heat the grill to medium-high. Brush grill with sesame oil and cook patties to desired doneness, 4-5 minutes per side.
While burgers cook on the first side, brush head of Napa cabbage with sesame oil. Flip burgers, then place cabbage oil-side down on the grill. Cook until cabbage softens, approximately 2-3 minutes.
To assemble burgers, put 1/8 Cup bean sprouts on bottom bun, place patty on top of bean sprouts and spread 1-1/2 tablespoons of dressing on patty. Top with 3-4 cabbage leaves and remaining half of bun.
I like Gewurztraminer with almost anything, but if you prefer a red wine with beef, Pinot Noir would do nicely, too.
