ingredients for Asian burger recipe

Step 1: Prepare Sauces

Blend the ingredients for the Wasabi Aioli and the Asian BBQ Sauce and set aside.

Step 2: Shape Ground Beef Into Patties

Blend burger ingredients into ground beef. Divide beef into four patties. Patties should be slightly larger than buns to allow for shrinkage from cooking.

Step 3: Grill, Assemble and Serve

Cook patties on a grill or in a skillet, flipping over so both sides are browned, until the internal temperature of beef, when measured with a digital meat thermometer, reaches 145 F (medium well). Lightly toast buns, then assemble burgers by spreading a generous layer of Wasabi Aioli on bottom buns, placing burgers on top of sauce and placing arugula and red onions on top of burgers. Finally, drizzle Asian BBQ Sauce on top of lettuce and cover burgers with top buns. Xiang Shou (Enjoy)
