Build a Better Burger 25th Anniversary Recipe: Banh "Moo" Burgers

Sutter Home Build a Better Burger Wine Pairing - Pinot Noir

Banh “Moo” Burgers, a finalist in the 2011 Sutter Home Build a Better Burger Recipe Contest, are inspired by Vietnamese banh mi sandwiches.

Prepared in 25 minutes or less, every bite of these burgers is made better with Sutter Home Pinot Noir.

1/3 cup unseasoned rice vinegar
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup grated carrot
1 cup grated daikon
3/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons sriracha sauce
3 green onions, chopped
2 1/4 pounds ground chuck
4 green onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
1/4 cup chopped shallots
2 teaspoons fish sauce
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 teaspoon pepper
6 soft, crusty French rolls, split
6 leaves butter lettuce
24 basil leaves
18 mint leaves
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
24 thin slices fresh jalapeno
Prepare a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill with a cover, or preheat a gas grill to medium-high.
To make the pickled carrots and daikon, combine the rice vinegar, sugar and salt in a small, place on the grill and bring to a boil over medium heat. Pour the vinegar mixture over the carrot and daikon in a heatproof bowl and toss to thoroughly coat. Set aside.
To make the sriracha mayo whisk all of the ingredients together in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate.
To make the patties combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl. Gently but thoroughly combine. Form the mixture into 6 patties.
Brush the grill with vegetable oil. Place the patties on the grill, cover and cook, for 4 to 6 minutes per side. During the final 2 minutes of cooking, place the rolls, cut side down, on the outer edges of the grill to lightly toast.
To assemble the burgers, spread the cut sides of each roll with sriracha mayo. Place a lettuce leaf on the bottom roll followed by a patty. Top each patty with 4 basil leaves, 3 mint leaves, 1 tablespoon cilantro, and 4 jalapeno slices. Drain the pickled carrots and daikon and add equal portions to the burger. Add the roll tops and serve.
